An Electronic Flight Bag (EFB) reduces cockpit workload and provides relevant information when you need it. DroidEFB overlays current position and flight plan onto an FAA Sectional, TAC, Low Altitude or High-Altitude chart. On the ground, current weather is displayed for long range planning; helping pilots visualize the impact current conditions will have on their flight.

Easily amend airports, waypoints, victor/jet airways, STARs, DPs, GPS coordinates and DME. Advanced navigation log takes into account current winds aloft for precise planning.

Routes flown are stored as GPS breadcrumbs and can be uploaded and viewed in Google Earth. https://droidefb.com/tutorials/

Charts and plates are viewable via our servers with an Internet connection and are downloadable for offline use. RouteMinder™ automatically checks the planned route for Charts needing downloaded.

Convenient, user-friendly, intuitive UI. Many useful features at your finger tips - for VFR in particular. Reasonable pricing. Have been asking for individual Low Altitude chats to be individually display-able rather than mesh only, due to some info being difficult or impossible to read on the chart. Would be perfect if the IFR low altitude charts mesh as well as the VFR Sectionals do... Updates are pretty regular otherwise. Definitely an EFB worthy of your consideration!

Zac, thank you for the positive comments! The nav drawer issue you mention should be fixed. FYI, I looked for recent correspondence from you via email and don't see anything... Please email me at support@droidefb.com if you still have an issue needing a response. Thank you! - Paul

Overall a very good app. I use it for VFR flights. Many long cross countries. Some things I would like to see are: -Improved logbook capabilities. -Voice warning (Bluetooth) for ADSB traffic, my #1 priority. -Lat and Long points seem to suffer heavy rounding, can this be improved? -Specific to my needs- a large format continuous Time to Target count down display option. I conduct formation flyovers at sporting events, funerals, etc. Timing is often based off the National Anthem or Taps. I.E once the anthem starts I need to be overhead in 1 minute and 55 seconds. A large easy to read time display with time from present position to the next waypoint would be very useful. -Rubber banding capability I plan to keep using this app. I look forward to improvements that make it even better.

Thank you, John! We save precise coordinates, the only rounding is in the displayed name. Instead of "rubber band", users may long press anywhere on a chart to Add, Insert or Append a waypoint. If you would email support@droidefb.com with more specifics on the features you want, we will be glad to implement them!

Edit: Thanks for the quick reply! I had confused "Max Zero Fuel weight" with "Hull weight" as I haven't ever heard it called that before. Leaving one start off for a bit of clumsiness in the UI, but maybe I'll get used to it as I go. Otherwise it's looking like it has some potential! Original post: First thing I tried was the weight and balance screen and i was unable to get it to work. just keeps saying my gross weight is -1.

Clay, this issue is likely caused by not having the WB upper and lower limit ranges set. See tutorial step 3: https://droidefb.com/weight-and-balance/ If this doesn't fix the issue, please let me know! Thank you, support@droidefb.com
