Over All Over all nice app. Best one out there for Android. Cons are that it needs it's own weight and balance calculator and needs to work with AOPA'S flight planner. The bottom line is that I prefer the android over the IPad but if I "DID" have an IPad I'd probably use Foreflight since it has more features (such as a weight and balance calculator) and flight plans can be transferred to and from AOPA and other online sources. However, a great app If you use an android... it does its job and does have a lot of nice features. I'm actual surprised that Garmin is sooo behind with this technology. Especially consider that there are many more people that prefer android devices (including myself). When it's time for me to replace my current android device, I just may switch to an IPad due to the added benefits as well as its an FAA approved device. Comon Garmin... we're counting on ya.

Cost too much!
One tiny update ! I've repeatedly sent requests to garmin to add one small change, but get the same "I'll send your request to the developers" answer. That one tiny request is to add the ability to set your own winds aloft default setting on startup. Right now, it defaults to 42,000 ft. My 172 can't quite get that high, so it's a useless default altitude. I know some people fly jets that high, but how about it, Garmin?!
Almost complete. The app needs to have a weight & balance function. I'm fairly upset that this is available on ios but not Android. Why should we get less product? Last I checked, the cost is the same.
Needs some work Sectional chart has terrible resolution unless you are zoomed in close. My devices have the power to render them but for some reason the app will not render at high resolution. I need the chart to be crisp not blurry.
