Fantastic now. Helicopter charts finally!!
For $75 a year, no one should rate what you get from this app anything but 5 stars. I love it. Just got a gdl39 3d and now I love it even more. Yes, there are things that could be done to enhance the app, but you get all you NEED and more for less than $7 a month. Best of all, I don't have to buy an iPad or iphone!
Need web interface for planning The app has great features, but you're hogtied to a mobile device in order to use any of them. We need a web interface to create, review, and modify flight plans, and to access flight logs and other data from Garmin Pilot. It's great that I don't *have* to use a computer to use all of the features of the app, but when my PC is available, it's much easier to use - especially if you have a large, widescreen monitor or two that you can use to view charts, weather, etc, not to mention the mouse and keyboard. And when do we get synthetic vision for Android? The Naviator app has it...
It's a good start, but behind its iOS cousin in terms of features and functionality. Biggest misses versus iOS are support for Jeppesen Charts and global coverage options. Outside of the platform differences, the flight planning and Weight/Balance features could use some further enhancement to be more immediately intuitive.
Poor resolution I really like the app, but with the IFR enroute charts, everything is blurry until I'm zoomed in quite a bit. I have a powerful enough device running Android 7.1.1 (latest) so there should be no problems. This is with a Nexus 9 tablet. The chart is mostly sharp at 2NM, but anything else greater it's slightly blurry. Garmin, are you aware of this problem? Please reply and I will help to troubleshoot if you need it.
I like it. It is helpful. I bought the standard subscription. I didn't realize that the standard doesnt include safe taxi, traffic, and flying over a chart. I'm pretty disappointed. Also, why cant I add an approach to a flight plan?
