- Kleineres GPS Positionssymbol

- Wetter / NOTAMs
- Reelle Windkalkulation im Navlog immer nach dem aktuellsten Stand.
- Wetter sollte sich im Flug autom. aktualisieren (Erkennen, wenn kurzzeitig eine Datenverbindung besteht)
- Radar, Ceeling, Sichtweiten, Wind europaweit

- Export/Import via Email von Routen
- Export des Navlog und Anflugkarten als PDF (Backup, am besten druckbar für A5)

- GPS Koordinaten auf der emergency Tafel

- Backup von Piloten Profil und Lizenzen

- Luftraum und FIS Warnung
- Horizontale Luftraumdarstellung

- Powerflarm Integration

- Hinderniswarnung / Terrainwarnung

- Airports/VORs im Navlog "anklickbar" für weitere Informationen

- Möglichkeit weitere Lizenzen zu speichern wie Funkzeugnis, Taugluchkeitsprüfungen etc. mit Erinnerungen 2 Monate bevor etwas ausläuft.

- Universal App für iPhone and iPad als Backup Option wenn das iPad ausfällt (Vorteil von AirNavigation Pro und SkyMap).
Ggf. auch abgespeckte Version für das iPhone mit Routenimport vom iPad und Hauptfokus auf dem Navlog und Notfallfunktion.

- IFR Waypoints in der Karte

- Grenznahe Airports sollten im Länderabo enthalten sein z.B EKSB

- Logbuchfunktion. Rudimentär reicht: z.B. klick auf die Uhrzeit > popup mit "BlockOff / Start / LAN / BlockOn" > auswählen durch user, fertig. Die entsprechende Zeit wird in einer Tabelle mit Datum gespeichert. Den ganzen vollautom. Logbüchern kann man nicht wirklich trauen und um die Schreibarbeit am Abend Zuhause kommt man derzeit nicht drumherum.
- oder als Zusatzspalte ins Navlog integrieren: Per click auf einen Waypoint wird die Zeit fixiert und abgespeichert.

Hallo,

vielen Dank für die ausfürliche "Wunschliste". Die meisten Punkte sind bereits auf unserer Liste für zukünftige Releases, andere Punkte haben wir jetzt ergänzt. Ihr feedback ist eine weitere gute Hilfe um sinnvoll zu priorisieren.

Für das "Mobile FliteDeck VFR" team,

Hi, any chance to allow External GPS devises for wifi on wifi ipad to work on your next update. I am using a DUAL GPS 150 with other aps without any issue. On you ap the GPS signal does not show.
Thanks for your info on weather this may be looked at.

Also I have subscribed to the European version package and need to fly to Spain but the maps are not done. When will they ?
Tks and regards - Laurent -
- Manuelles Springen zum nächsten Waypoint während man eine Route abfliegt.

- Das NavLog sollte sich während des Fluges an Geschwindigkeit, Position und Kurs anpassen. Der nächste Wegepunkt sollte im Navlog markiert sein und auch hier sollte der nächste Waypoint manuell ausgewählt werden können.

- Manuell erstellte Waypoints (z.B. WP2 über einer Stadt) sollten auf der Karte beschriftet sein. Ich hatte 2 nanuelle WP in einer Route hintereinander programmiert. In der Infobox steht dann z.B WP2 BRG:135Grad. Aber man kann kaum sehen zu welchem WP ich nun geleitet werde, da diese in der Karte nicht benannt sind.
- Vielleicht könnte man auf den "Positions Center Butten" rechts in der Kartenansicht verzichten und diesen oben rechts in "North up" integrieren: erster klick=center position symbol; zweiter klick=track up usw.
Wäre für mich intuitiver und weniger Platzverbrauch.

I can only reenforce most of what Benjamin wrote originally.

I'm sure you've seen the competition here in Europe (AirNavPro, SkyDemon, etc) so you definitely need to catch up with some of their basic functions like:

  • Live Weather & wind for Departure/Destinations/Alternates/Enroute
  • Actual Notams for Departure/Destinations/Alternates/Enroute
  • ATC Flight Plan filing
  • Reverse Flight Plan button
  • Airspace warning
  • Radio Frequencies on Navlog
  • Flight plan summary (like SkyDemon's "Flight Details")
  • iPhone version
  • Map Depiction changing (or otherwise I've discovered a bug as that preference doesn't work on my iPad anymore)
  • Flight logging

I know it's a long list but these things really are basic for an iPad nav system in this day and age. Otherwise the product is good. Do you have any time scale when the improvements are coming? My free trial expires soon and I can't in good conscience invest in a product which is so far behind the competition. Thanks and good luck!

Dear Markus Marth,

Mobile Flight Deck VFR proved to be a very dependable flight-planning- and NAV-software when I took it along for a series of nice flights with my Savage Cruiser, D-MIWA , last month. My travels covered all sorts of european VFR flight operation, from tiny grass-strips to complex airspaces and ATC-controlled airports, but also to mountainous airfields in Austria. Being accustomed to the ICAO-chart-layout I needed little time to get familiar with Jeppesen‘s one. The adherence even to tricky traffic-patterns is like a walk in the park. Flying the Alps is a pleasure: confirming the precise map-contuor-layers with the real scenery underneath . But also the hardware, an iPad2 in my case, deserves compliments. Even in peak temperatures (35°C OAT) it never failed. Display brightness is not too glaring, but sufficient.

Nevertheless for some questions:

How are the track-arrows - the black and the yellow one - defined?

How can I insert various winds for single route-legs?

How can I get instant access to DIST and ETO for the next WPT?

And, we have been talking about before,

how about the option to create and store custom waypoints?

I‘m looking forward to see you again soon, probably at „Tannkosh“ in August?

Best regards,

Markus Koch

   

Hello Mr. Detroyat,

thanks for the additional information you provided on the phone. Regarding the support of external Bluetooth GPS devices with "Mobile FliteDeck VFR", we have to inform you that (as of now !), we cannot  support this functionality. However, It looks like that the issue is not related to the app itself, but more related to the the external device in combination with the current IOS version on the iPad, and the used GPS protocol. We found some general threads where exactly this issue is described, especially with newer IOS versions.

We will go into further detail and testing on this issue, and as soon as we have more results with different devices, we will post it here.

Until further notice, we can support 3G iPads (having a "built in" GPS receiver) only.

For the Mobile FliteDeck VFR team,

Markus

Hello Mr. Koch,

thank you for your great feedback !

Here are some answers to your questions:

- the black track line represents a 5 min vector of your current track.

- the yellow one points either to the destination, or to the next waypoint on your route. This is depending on what you have selected by tapping on the lower left corner in Flying Mode. (By tapping on this area, you select the provided information like ETE, ETA and DIST also either based on the destination, or on the next waypoint.)

- the option to create and store custom waypoints in on our list for further improvements.

Hope that helps, and YES (last but not least...) we are looking forward to see you at our Jeppesen booth in Tannkosh !

On behalf of the "Mobile FliteDeck VFR" team,

Markus

my garmin glo works!

Zwei kleine Dinge nach meinem ersten Flug mit dem FD VFR...

  • Lesezeichen für den textuellen Teil.
  • Drucken einer geplanten Route für Backup Zwecke. Optionen: 1. Flugplätze, 2. En-Route mit Zoomfaktor oder NM links und rechts der geplanten Route.
  • Route umkehren für den Rückflug.

Hallo,

vielen Dank für das feedback.

"Drucken" und auch "Route umkehren" wird mit einem der nächsten Release kommen.

Viele Grüße,

Markus
