Avare (pronounced "Ah vAir" - like "aware" with a "v") is a free moving-map Aviation GPS & EFB app.
*Note: Internet access is required only for installing the app, an aviation Database, and at least 1 chart; then for any updates. We recommend that you TURN OFF AUTOMATIC UPDATE in your Play app, manually update Avare and then its Downloads, then fly in Airplane Mode to save battery.
Avare offers offline moving map on all FAA charts (VFR Sectional, IFR lo/hi enroute, Approach Plate, WAC & TAC); plus A/FD info, Airport Diagrams w/GPS Taxi, and Terminal Procedures. Also: GPS status, Terrain/Elevation Maps, 50 Nearest airports, Obstacles, and more. Some FAA Charts cover Puerto Rico, plus parts of Canada, Mexico and the Caribbean. All of this is Completely Free with no ads.
*Note: Like all apps for portable devices, Avare is not FAA certified for primary navigation but may be used as outlined in FAA documents. See our NOTICE below, and the FAQ on our website for links to FAA documents.

Note: The FAA occasionally changes their charts such that outdated charts may incorrectly display your location in Avare, so be sure to Update any charts you may use in flight! ANY time you plan to Update a chart, first ensure that you have the latest version of Avare and its Database.
