This is the best free aviation app that I have found for Android. As a flight instructor I use this regularly and I recommend it to my students.
Every release gets better. It's as good now as many that cost hundreds. Simple and intuitive, trip planning is a breeze.
Great tool! Quick and easy to use.
There are a few things that are not perfect. Can't rubber band a route, a few bits of the interface are maybe a little clunky. I do wish it would download chart updates in the background. But... it's FREE, and chart and AFD updates are FREE, and it does work really well. Plus it will send GPS data to BT serial devices. Works great with Stratux also. I keep looking at other apps, but Avare is the one I keep using. And, I find the more I use it the more I like it.
I'm an aviation enthusiast and hope to start my private pilot training soon, but I've used this on commercial flights as a passenger. For a free app, this is about as good as it gets. The only things I'd like to see added is a radar overlay and maybe a way to personalize the plane icon (color/size). Maybe actual pilots have a different opinion (then again, maybe not), but will likely be my go-to navigation supplement when I start training.
