Yes and no.
No, we can't blame jeppesen for problems that have physical origins. But, on the other hand, yes, we can blame them.
Other apps do not have the problem during flight. And Jeppesen App uses much more juice than other apps…"
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…"
I dearly hope you are applying ISO Standards... Still: Just because you use standards for quality management / code management doesn't mean that the app is efficient. One thing has nothing to do with the other. The cpu usage must have a…"
thank you for your involvement and passion for our product. I can see it with the time you invest to write us. One thing I want to point out regarding your assumption, that our FD VFR would waste CPU cycles and impact safety. This is…"
If you have a look at the picture the original poster attached you get what I mean, I think.
I am very aware that iPad et. al. are consumer products and as such not 100% reliable. Still, if you offer a product for an app you should try to…"
I am not sure how to understand your comment. I agree that overheating of iPads is a risk scenario for ipad charting and has to be mitigated. On the other hand the iPad hardware is a consumer electronics product for the general market.…"
"As much as I like the image... it reminds me of some laurel & hardy sketch. It's a perfect solution for a problem that should (must!) not exist in the first place.
In addition, not all aircrafts have a vent located that close... try doing…"
I used the auto-zoom feature for some time now, but I find the auto-zoom is doing more or less what it wants.
Very often the zoom level and/or centering is not very useful and needs to adjusted manually (especially in portrait…"
"External Bluetooth GPS support
we noticed that several users had issues while using external Bluetooth GPS devices.
If there is no GPS position indication within the app, although the receiver is successfully paired, and an indication that a…"
"Printing (as backup)
While the app has no printing option, the backup solution is to make a screenshot of the relevant area and print this screenshot via wifi printing or send it to a computer and print it from there."
Many pilots voiced concern that the iPad might run out of power during a flight. A solution for this is to either use a 12V power supply (if a port is available in the aircraft) or to use an external battery pack which can charge…"
Viktor Strausak reported that iPads with a white frame are more stable in regards to overheating. Those with a black frame overheat more easily due to sunshine. Annette Kennedy recommends to install the iPad in a holder and position…"
"External GPS support
It seems to be possible to use an external GPS with our App. At least our betatest user Alf "Major" was able to use his Garmin GLO (connected to the iPad via Bluetooth). He used it on a flight from Friedrichshafen to…"
