Approach Plates on Maps Now on FltPlan Go for Android

FltPlan Go for Android now allows users to view approach plates directly on maps.

This new feature has options that enable viewing of Weather, METARs, and Winds directly over approach plates. The transparency of the approach plate and weather can be adjusted to allow for clear viewing of the selected base map layer.

This feature enhances situational awareness when transitioning from the enroute phase to the approach phase of your flight. For those interested in buying an Android to use with our app, we suggest the Samsung Galaxy tablets for their tested performance, stabilty, and range of sizes available.

New Enhancements to FltPlan Go for Android

In our latest update to FltPlan Go for Android, we added some exciting new features. Here's what you'll find when you update to the latest version:

•  An external tab to handle connections to portable ADS-B units, including the new Dual XGPS-170, Pathfinder, L3-Lynx, Stratux, iLevil, Dynon and many installed avionics.

•  The ability to customize your aircraft icon between single engine-prop, jet, or helicopter -- with eight different color choices.

•  A filter for runway length in Airports Nearby Me. This new feature saves valuable time checking each airport

•  A Split Screen option in the Maps section. With Split Screen, you can divide your screen either vertically or horizontally and display your map on one side and your chosen split screen display on the other side. Choose from Airports, Departure Airport Procedures, Arrival Airports Procedures, NavLogs, Weather, ScratchPad, and Tools.

•  Over 6000 Instrument Approach Fixes for Canada have been added.

•  Runway Center Lines for Canadian airports are now available.

FltPlan Go for Android is great to use as your primary flight planning tool, or it can make a useful backup to FltPlan Go for iPad. Likewise, our iPad app can be used as a backup to FltPlan Go for Android. Both apps are free and you can have as many devices as you wish.
