mind that you not only need an ADS-B transponder (sender), you also need an ADS-B receiver with an appropriate display. Flarm (not universally, but in some products) is both an ADS-B receiver and display, it is relatively cheap and exists…"
I'm with you in most points:
Especially I meant Flarm as a separate device, entirely unrelated to MFD! That is, in my example above, it was meant that the Flarm devices already provide obstacle databases. These databases are in my…"
sure, I don't know how many glider pilots use MFD. My point was to illustrate that not every feature that any competitor has should be built into MFD, especially not when there are other, more specialized apps that are more…"
well, MFD does flight planning, and does it very well, doesn't it?
What I meant was that why do we need everything anybody can ever dream of all in MFD? What use is W&B and fuel calculations in a glider? A glider pilot's…"
"Exactly my view: Do one thing and do it well!
If MFD VFR was crammed with all these me-too features, it would be exactly that: A feature-overloaded toy that lures users by suggesting that it can do anything when in fact separate, more…"
I have not checked yet and am more familiar with flight logs in IGC rather than KML file format, but aren't timestamps associated with each sample point of the recorded track / the path anyway?"
"Good news, I very much appreciate the new release!
It would have been nice if the flight tracks were also available in IGC file format as well (the format that glider pilots use for logging their flights and e.g. Flarm devices output as…"
"As many fellow pilots here seem to be bashing JMFD VFR here, it would like to add a contrary experience:
I was looking for a adequate replacement for the German AIP VFR as issued by the DFS. Especially, I was not only looking for approach charts…"
