Ratings and Reviews
Functions well on short, low speed trips. Downloads are a serious pain. Wifi can be super high speed or home link, it drops either way. When it gets hot, it can do a sector in 10 minutes. Wish I knew how to keep it warmed up as I have worked the download thing hard. One cross country requires 8-12 sectionals. Do not wait until pre-flight!
The New Version Is Superb
On my iPhone 6 in June 2017, this app works superbly. All of the chart "calibration" and procurement problems have been handled for you, you just select which maps to download. As it says in the usage tips, you just have to double tap the screen to get the airplane icon centered on your location.
You need a good WiFi to download sectional charts (even after downloading map data to the cache), but this data remains on the iPhone so you can fly out of cell phone coverage area no problem. The chart data seems to survive a reboot.
I have flight tested this in my glider at Minden. The idea is to have a backup should my LX9000 fail, so as to get me home. The user interface is extremely simple, just what is needed when you are stressed by flight problems!
Airplane icon disappears when I flight plan.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
