Invaluable. This works really well. Database is huge, is really easy to use and is super accurate. You need to move to allow the GPS to aquire a groundtrack, which caught me out at first, but makes sense. Another really good app by Sensorworks.
More modern smartphones no longer have a dedicated MENU button, making it impossible to tune any NDB, which brakes the application completely. If/when the app is fixed by adding a menu button I'll give it more stars.
Great apps, would love to see a combined panel version. I love all the Sensorworks apps! They work great, even the free versions, and are a fantastic learning tool for student pilots. It would be great if there was one app that combined all of the instruments so you could use them simultaneously. Keep up the good work.
UPDATE...working now but alas no stations I'm trying to use this software as it looks cool, but alas the software can't find my GPS signal or something. It keeps flashing the satellite symbol and then of course times out after 5 minutes due to the free status. If I can't get it to work at all, I can't exactly purchase or upgrade to the full version. And the web address for the developer isn't correct. UPDATE: I rec'd an email from the developer and he had me download a GPS test app. My GPS wasn't working the way I was expecting it too. So now I have that working and the app is working but still no usable ADF's in the area I guess :-( The developer isn't putting ADF's stations below a certain wattage into his database. Still has a web site address I can't bring up though.
Not working here! App isn't able to acquire satellites, at least where I am. It also seems to be for Europe only. In looking thru the NDB list, I only saw European NAVAIDS. Disappointed in Arizona!
Nice , but needs wifi position I could use the app as a flight instructor , but then it would need a position derived from wifi , otherwise it does not work in a building. Better yet , giving it a start position using an icao code would then be even better ! Same remark for the VOR app
