Hello,

Jeppesen continues to support the Mobile FliteDeck VFR application and is in the final stage to release the 2.4.0 version with some awaited enhancements such as “user defined waypoints”, expanded coverage of the “Baltic states” and the "ATIS frequency displayed in the “go flying”-mode”. We apologize if anyone was told the Mobile FliteDeck VFR app was going to be discontinued or that customers have to switch to ForeFlight. The partnership with ForeFlight however gives you as a customer now the choice to use the high quality Jeppesen data in whichever app you like the most and that best fits your operational needs.

For the “Mobile FliteDeck VFR” team,

Markus

Some news on ForeFlight + Jeppesen; after a few emails with the foreflight support it is Not possible to integrate the mfdvfr Charts at this time...

Da kann ich nur zustimmen; hatte das seit Beginn gewollt. Es würde auch der Flugsicherheit dienen und man könnte gefahrloser Testen mit weniger head down Zeiten.

Hallo,

ich würde mir eine Anbindung an den Simulator X-Plane wünschen, dann könnte ich zu hause mit der Software einen Flug üben/simulieren und im echten Flug mich wieder auf den Flug konzentrieren und nicht so auf die Software.

Danke

Hi everybody,

I post here because in my experiences new threads are ignored or authorised only after a lot of time.  This is not a "future enhancement" request.  It is just the wish to share something that may be of interest to other pilots using JVFRMFD.

I accepted the offer of ForeFlight for a 90 days trial of FF Europe.  Supposedly there are VFR charts of Europe inside.  Now, in my opinion, the maps are much much less detailed of the Jeppesen ones, and for hobby VFR flight absolutely unusable.  I would be happy to be corrected because the App is very complete and well done, but actually the test has convinced me that, notwithstanding the lack of development on JVFRMFD, this is as of today still the best moving map that I know of, for aerial navigation (as hobby, not as a professional).

I made a comparison based on the assumption that I am not willing to buy the special charts for every country, the of course FF offers.  The big advantage of JVFRMFD is exactly that you have an uniform representation in every county.  Now look at what is "shown" in my homeland and home region by the two softwares. This is the Emilia-Romagna region, in North Italy, between Bologna and the Adriatic see:

now let's zoom in the region immediately east of Bologna (the two small airfields Molinella and Ozzano are in my heart because my first solo was there, on an ultralight Tecnam P92).

I am without words to the absence of detail in FF.  Of course I know I could buy Avioportolano for FF for Italy, Skyguide for Switzerland, DFS for Germany, and and and.  But this is not the point.  I thought that the quality of Jeppesen vector charts was going to appear in FF, now that they both are united under Boeing.  Well, it is not (yet) the case!

Things being so, I have to say that JVFRMFD is still my choice. Even if I would have wished a little more "development energy" in the past years.  

I would be happy to hear other opinions and / or to be corrected... in fact I am pretty new to FF.

Best regards

Hey Claudio,

I‘m also using both apps and i‘m completly with you :-) concernig the Charts in ff there is nothing you could do to have it almost similar to mfdvfr ...
Everything else, weather, briefing, traffic (in combination with a stratux), checklists and so on is unfortunately so much better in ff than any other app i know.
Hopefully they (ff) will spend some More Time for the european market and their needs ...

Greetings from germany

HI Claudio

I fly very often in the USA as well but FF for VFR is much too complicated compared to JVFRMFD. Just to prepare a single flight is too much hassle. And with JVFRMFD I do have all the charts with me automatically. Flying in Switzerland though I would like to have lakes and small towns tagged an named too as ATC often refers to small town (unlike in the USA).

Hi Claudio.

I'm 100% with you. Far most of the flying is done (at least in Germany and supposedly also in whole Europe and in the United States) under VFR rules. For this purpose there is no real alternative that can beat JVFRMFD - at least in Europe.

However, unfortunately you need to buy additional software, since you have to make up for all lacking things that you need, which are not covered by JVFRMFD but are covered by products like Garmin pilot, ForeFlight, Sky Demon etc.

Of course, one would think, now that both ForeFlight and JVFRMFD are united under the Boeing headquarters, both products merge within one unbeatable choice for the pilot. I don't think so. This choice is not being made by pilots but by one-way-minded controllers and marketing nurds - especially at Boeing. What I would rather expect is, that the 737 Max 8 - developers in the USA will slow down the development of JVFRMFD even more and will rise prices for FF without major developments. They don't care about the GA market - this market is way too small for them.

Thanks for sharing, Marcel, Benno, Ralph.  And ... Ralph, hope you are wrong... but think you could be right :-)

Regards & happy landings
