Top Aviation, Pilot, Weather and Navigation App. Despite having a very nice Dynon Glass Panel, I find myself using Harmon's Pilot App on every flight. If they'd add 3rd party support for ADS-B and similar sources, Garmin would own this market!
Good app for pilots
The app is phenomenal. I did find one bug and with Garmin on the other line it was tested and reported to the tech team. The bug I experienced every time was as such. When you open the app and the GPS kicks in you get your locate. When you go home and close the app out immediately it keeps the GPS on. But if your in the app and go home wait 8 secs and the GPS shuts down and you can close the app. At least it was just a patience game. Overall, the app has come a long way and is a must have for pilots along side there other tools. Highly recommended and very intuitive.
Version 6.1.6 fixed 6.1.0 which crashed repeatedly on a Samsung Tab E. New version is very stable. Very powerful app, especially when used in conjunction with GTX 345 via bluetooth. Dynamic maps are great, consistent with look & feel of Garmin devices - weather, traffic & synth vision are great. Flight planning easy to use. App can utilize SD card, a huge plus for my 16G tablet. Support was great, when version 6.1.0 was so unstable. Just waiting for the approach overlays for Android....
So far so good. Integration with Garmin GTX 345 appears excellent. Their custom charts are taking me a bit to get used to and I don't know why I'm obligated to put a proposed flight date & time when drafting a future flight plan, but overall very nice app. 5 stars when Android and iPad version have matching feature sets.
Garmin Pilot is an excellent app, but trip planning works best if you already know the airport code of your destination. It's annoying when you have to open another app just to look up an airport code.
