Hello Markus

Why are you being so cryptic? You announced the iPhone-comptability last year and we haven't heard from this since. So instead of saying "especially feature related" why don't you just name it and inform us about your roadmap? As you see more and more people are getting annoyed about Jeppesen's behaviour (me included) so it would really be nice to know whether you are just playing along or whether we can really expect something.

Thank you and kind regards

Stephan

Hi All,

Just some test-results with the actual app after some flights:

- Battery consumption still above most of the other apps. Fun thing is that battery consumption seems to be related to some circumstances I yet wasn't able to determinate the real cause... it looks like the app is always consuming more power on the first leg than on the reverse leg.

- Flight Tracking -> would be really helpful if the app would record the coordinates and give you a flight-path (analogue to SkyDemon)

- Stability: Still not where other apps are but I see an improvement...

... the other issues... like sync, etc. left aside... I do see an improvement. But they are tiny steps in a really large gap...

Kind Regards!

hi all,

maybe this new partnership delivers some features into MFD ... ?!?

https://www.foreflight.com/products/jeppesen/

Did you see the price tags ?

USA (Full): $ 199/yr

Europe (VFR): $ 1366/yr (!!!)

Continuously put some coins into your savings-account.

Hello Gerhard,

Many Thanks for the comment.

The shown prices for Europe (IFR as well as IFR & VFR) were incorrect, and were already removed from the ForeFlight website. Correct prices will be published soon.

Other than that, please be aware that the new charting related “ForeFlight - Jeppesen” partnership will not affect the Jeppesen product “Mobile FliteDeck VFR”.  

For the “Mobile FliteDeck VFR” team,

Hi Markus,

but does it mean that the charting in ForeFlight will then be equivalent to the charting in MFVFR?

Best regards,

Etienne.

Hi Etienne,

they say this about the Garmin aera 795 and other Garmin products as well: moving map and all that.

But I can tell you, after having spent about 500€ for the database licenses alone (not to mention the hardware itself), they using Jeppesen charts just means that you get scans of the book pages. It's moving map, yes, but your moving airplane actually moves across the book pages.

In case of the Garmin devices, the book pages cannot even be embedded into the navigation maps, instead you have to click on the airport and explicitly open the maps (always north up). Horrible. And according to a trusted, technically well versed friend, that is even with the very expensive Garmin GTN 750 so.

We got the Garmin aera 795 built into our TB9, but we're actually considering selling it again, and replacing it either with a FlyMap device or with an iPad fixture for the cockpit panel - using MFD VFR, which is really the best moving map I've seen so far.

Best regards, Carsten

Dear Markus,

As the flying season has already started, would you be able to shed some light on when to expect the feature related updates you announced as "coming soon" in February.

Thank you.

Dear Gerald,

External Beta-Testing for Release 2.2 started last week. That means it is very close now to a release date of 2.2.

This release will mainly add two new functionalities:

1) It will allow to backup personal data (like Aircraft Profiles, Flights, Flight Log data, etc.) into the apple iCloud. Whenever required, the data can then be restored to an iPad which is connected to the same personal iCloud. E.g. if a new iPad replaces an old one, all data can then be easily restored. Additionally, if you use two iPads in parallel (backup), it will be easy to have the personal data synced on both iPads.

2) Flight Tracks can be recorded with the coming release. A .kml file will be written, which can be directly opened and displayed in Google Earth after the flight (3D Environment). The Flight Tracks can also be shared via AirDrop, e-mail, etc.

We are all looking forward to Release 2.2.

For the “Mobile FliteDeck VFR” Team,

Markus

Dear Markus,

That is good news, although late. Personally I consider the track recording not very interesting, but that is because I use CloudAhoy for that.  But the iCloud synchronisation is long overdue and I am glad to hear that it is coming.

Since "hope dies last" I would like to encourage the Jeppesen Team to inform us, the customers, what plans lie ahead. Something like a roadmap of the planned development.  And to actively communicate (with whatever mean, it has not to be the forum, it could be social media too if you don't like the forum), not to wait that someone asks.  

Best regards and thank you for taking the time to answer

Claudio

Slow development and lack of communication typically raise expectation upon the things to come and most often lead to disappointment - old wisdom ;-). Don't expect too much of the update. I still think the concept of the application is best on the market, but it may be a bigger than thought issue to revive from the current position.
