I really do like the app and its overall design. It's helpful during my time here in flight school however it tends to crash more often than I would like. It crashes during normal use, flight planning or while actually flying. Twice it crashed when I wasn't even actively using it. I'm not saying it crashes everyday because it does not but I get that feeling like "is it going to crash on me today?" I have a Samsung galaxy Tab 2. Would like stronger support for this tablet. Otherwise it's a good app with great features
I love this app and use it for flying on my iPad. However, the latest Android version still has a bug with syncing checklists between iOS and Android l. Not all checklists sync. Garmin, this is a product used by pilots, please fix it once and for all!
Well designed app but the ground speed was stuck at 64 kts all the time during flight while the actual speed was much higher. Hope the uodate will fix this problem
Update 3/19/18: Once an indespensible app now made useless after the latest update. The app crashed numerous times within a 20 minute flight, follwed by further subsequent crashes during a Commercial checkride. As others have now said, this has no place in the cockpit at this point. Great reminder to always back up with paper charts. ---Previous review prior to Update: "Great flight application with many useful, indispensable features. However it is not as good as its iOS counterpart. Friend with the same app on an iPad has various tools I do not. One of these being W&B (Unless I'm missing something) Some items difficult to find at times also (A/FDs) All in all still a wonderful app that has been used on 11+ hour xCountrys everywhere from WV to FL to IL!"---
This is the most elegantly-designed aviation app I've used. Unlike FltPlan Go, it works on all three of my Android devices. The auto-scaling Garmin vector maps are good enough that I never revert to the raster sectionals/VNCs, etc. The Android version had stability problems at first, but dev team has been very responsive fixing them. Wish list: W&B tool; add approach waypoints to flight plan like with an airway; altitude alerting (eg at cruise, set an alarm if altitude changes by more than 200 ft).
This app is the best of best app out there. I gave it 4 out of 5 stars because it needs support for importing and exporting to Google drive. Both for Android and iOS. Also an enhanced way of managing space on devices with limited storage.
