Dear all,thank you for the new FLIGHT LOG feature that was introduced with Release 2.1I could test the feature in flight last week and it works very nicely. Compared to other flight log apps, where…Continue
thank you very much: Version 2.1.5 resolves this NOTAM issue (and e.g. the new Drone corridor as in NOTAM B1305/16).
I my original post I complained about the fact that MFD VFR has cut away the Flight Level information of the official DFS…"
Dear all,currently there is a german NOTAM (B0707/16) that basically blocks a very large corridor through Germany.If I compare the Jeppesen Version of this NOTAM with the DFS Version, I find, that the flight level is given only in the DFS original (FL470 up to FL660). Obviously this NOTAM has nothing to do with our kind of VFR flying.Jeppesen does not show the FL information. Could you please take care of this subject.Thank you and best regardsFrankP.S. I wonder what kind of military unmanned…See More
we really can not blame Jeppesen for the iPad overheating issue. All tablets have the same problem: the hardware gets to hot in the sun. Even if you leave a tablet in the sun, with no app running at all, the tablet will shut of or boil…"
it was a positive surprise to find that with the April 2016 update cycle the German MIL NVFR system and its waypoints are included in the map data.
Thank you very much.
Not very practical is, that it is not possible to select /…"
iPad overheating in summer? No problem: check the attached picture.
Bottom of the iPad is vented with outside air. No overheating, even on day with 40°C ground temperature.
No overheating for the iPad !!! - the pilot stays cool when…"
it appears that in V2.1.1 the METAR SYMBOLS are shown below a translucent waypoint. This is slightly betten than before, where METAR SYMBOLS were hidden under the waypoint.
But this translucent layout is still hard to read. Why…"
thank you for fixing the "aircraft selection bug" in the menu window. With V2.1.1. it is now possible to select all the aircrafts in the menu again.
But still I want to bring the "aircraft home base" to your attention.…"
the issue with inconsistent weather forecast (color does not match with explanation window) still exists and happens regularly. This is critical bug. Please put priority on a true fix.
One other thing I want to mention: the METAR SYMBOL…"
Dear all,thank you for the new FLIGHT LOG feature that was introduced with Release 2.1I could test the feature in flight last week and it works very nicely. Compared to other flight log apps, where the pilot has to set and adjust some stall-speeds before the software works correctly, MFD VFR does everything right without any setting of parameters. Very good.And the best is, everything works automatically out of the flying mode - this is what pilots needed.A major benefit is, that the MFD VFR…See More
some time has passed since the weather data inconsistency issue has been improved. In general, the weather forecast MFD VFR has a very high quality and value for me. The forecast is a little bit on the conservative side - in many cases the…"
I can confirm that with Release 2.1 the NOTAMs are stored and made available correctly again after loosing internet connection. The stored NOTAMs are available when simulated on ground and in real flight.
Thank you for this quick reaction.…"
Dear all,Here is new bug report, probably easy to fix:When MFD shows airport details there are four categories: airplanes, sailplanes, motorglider and ultralight.In planning mode, all four category-symbols are shown correctly.But in flying mode MFD shows motorglider twice and does not show the ultralight symbol.Two screenshots attached.Best regardsFrankSee More
my experience are two things:
1. closing the MFD VFR app means: hold the on / off switch for about five seconds until "switch off screen" comes up. Then hold the home button for five seconds until the desc top screen comes up.…"
"Hello Markus, thank you for your explanation with the FIR and routing changes after loosing Internet connection - that makes sense.
But even if I simply create a route, download and fetch NOTAMS of that route, cut Internet connection and do…"
please find three examples (sreen shots) of inconsisting weather forecasts, where color and listing do not match.
As said before, the situation has improved a lot compare to before - but the issues still exist.
