Some font size increases to increase ease-of-access to critical data.
Hoops placement and altitude tuned a bit more for 3-D instrument approaches to match the publish approaches.
Ratings and Reviews
There’s a lot to like about this app. Although it’s cumbersome to get set up and really requires a subscription to Seattle avionics maps and charts to be fully functional, I really love the situational awareness of the safe glide function. Written from an engineers perspective, the app takes some getting used to but once you figure it out it really works well.
Excellent situation awareness, terrain avoidance and emergency landing guidance. Xavion works on an iPhone as well as it does on an iPad. I mount it next to my undersized cockpit console, and have complete panel back up in case of electrical failure. I use earbuds underneath my headset for audible terrain avoidance alerts. When I get ADS-B, I will also enjoy traffic alerts. Xavion works seamlessly with X-Plane for flight planning and proficiency simulation.
With Seattle Avionics subscriptions (additional) do you have moving me up display on VFR Sectional, IFR Enroute charts and Approach Plates.
All I would ask in addition to these features is a one touch transition between approach plates and Highway-in-the-sky guidance to the threshold.
I never fly without this app running and mounted on my panel - this is huge safety insurance. Try it - you AND your passengers will feel a new level of relaxation!
NOTE: I had a self-inflicted mess up in my craft configuration entries and emailed Austin for help. He spent considerable time and several back and forth emails to find and explain my problem! That is a HUGE benefit in a program as detailed and important as this one can be if you'll let it! Wonderful support!
