Avare is a great free product/app for pilots looking for a navigation app with all the features found in other products that you would otherwise have to pay for. Traffic alert, weather info, maps for vfr and ifr, plates, supplemental info, and many many other features exist within the Avare app. I am able to plan a flight, and it also has filing capability although I have not tried filing a plan there yet. To appreciate what the Avare app has to offer each pillot needs to try it for themselves.

Excellent EFB app. This is an open source app so it is truely free and is supported by volunteers. It has all the basic functions I need as an instrument rated private pilot. Map screens are not cluttered and you can select just the maps and coverage you need. Updates of maps and weather are easy one button push and downloads are fast. Works well on both my Samsung phone and tablet. I have been using Avare on my tablet with the stratux adsb receiver. I get in-flight traffic, METAR and NEXRAD.

I use this as a backup for for flight. It allows a completely independent system to be available for IFR flight in addition it can be used as a second display to just show the plates on one display and maps and everything else on another. It allows one to do this with a very inexpensive Android based system. In addition there is no obvious cost to it. Perhaps they have started to ask for donations and I will gladly provide them.
