Simply Marvelous Dahling.. GalaxyTab2 wifi only Worked flawlessly right out of the "box" ! VOR and DME for $1.60 cents !!! No room for a VOR reciever and antenna in my antique aircraft. BINGO Problem solved. this simulated vor has no radio propagation problems in the mountains and valleys. Fabulous data base. Works exactly like a radio based VOR does. Every student pilot should use this in his car to learn the ways in which VOR navigation works... and doesn't ! Graphics are super, function is super. Professional in every way.
Handy app Update. I recently upgraded my phone to a Samsung S5. Reloaded this app now the settings menu is not displayed making the app basically non funtional. I can't tune into any stations. I down loaded this app to keep my VOR nav chops up when flying a light sport. Tested it out on cross country from KWVI to KPRB. Worked very nicely - cross checked to panel instruments and it was on the money.
Version 5 above androids not compatible Hello.....Cant find the menu bar to select station we want to navigate it, after I change my phone. This is a good VOR apps I use it to fly on C172 VOR navigation it work as what suppose to be as what in my aircraft VOR show on it.
Used to work great Not sure what happened with the last update? Not able to select a VOR & no menu available on the screen. Receiving a To & From indication with a working CDI but I have no idea what VOR it's receiving? Otherwise I'd give 5 stars, hope it gets fixed using the Galaxy 6 Edge
To be fair... It is an excellent app. I used it several times while flying a Beechcraft BE23, but now i can't make it work. Maybe there is something wrong with my S3. EDIT: As I was writing the previous comment the app started to run and everything seems to be fine now. Meh...!
Excellent training aid for student pilots. I haven't used it in the air yet, but I've had all sorts of fun using this app, along with the NDB app, in my car while I'm driving. Select a nearby VOR and give yourself some training exercises (without crashing into anyone). The OBS is a bit touchy, but otherwise it works great. Very realistic operation. Would be even better if I could use both apps, side by side, at the same time.
