Do you want to be able to track your flight’s path down to the most specific measurements?

Breadcrumbs Image

The FltPlan Go app for iPad offers Breadcrumbs, a helpful feature that allows pilots to track their exact route of flight.

When the Breadcrumbs feature is activated within the FltPlan Go app, a solid green trail follows your exact route, conveniently pictured over a detailed map. Breadcrumbs are tracked using GPS monitoring within the iPad.

Within the app, there is an option to save your breadcrumbs. Routes will be retained in the app as long as you need. You can also name your breadcrumbs, so you can access these routes with ease.

Measurements including altitude, ground speed, latitude and longitude, magnetic course, and distance traveled, are displayed within the HUD (Heads Up Display) on the map, alongside breadcrumbs.

For more information about Breadcrumbs, check out the FltPlan Go iPad User's Manual.
