Jeppesen Mobile FliteDeck VFR - Important Notification regarding iOS 7 upgrade

Dear Mobile FliteDeck VFR User,

 

Within the next few days, Apple will offer an operating system update to iOS 7 on your iPad.

 

In an effort to minimize any impact to your existing Mobile FliteDeck VFR application, we have made the appropriate adjustments to the app and submitted it to Apple for approval, which should occur within the next few days.

 

Unfortunately, as soon as you upgrade to iOS 7 and open Mobile FliteDeck VFR version 1.1.2, the application will…

Enhancement ideas

Hi, 

after a lot of good live flight experience (over 8 hours) with Mobile FliteDeck VFR I would like to post  my enhancement ideas for the Dev team of Jeppesen. 

Unfortunately I'm not a Beta tester, so my enhancement ideas are based on the currently published release of the flite deck version. 

Here is the list of enhancement ideas:

  • Ground elevation indication (in additon to the GPS elevation)
  • Current heading bearing line (the black one). What…

App unavailable in Apple Store

I would suggest, if you're going to say this is available, that you

try actually putting it into the app store. Only a product from GMBH is

there! Also, having registered with Jeppesen, my name (btw is this

my full name or email address or what) and password DON'T WORK

to log into your site. This mirrors why I stopped buying from you years

ago.

Cost of Flitedeck VFR

I am already a member und user of Flitestar, Jeppview and Flitdeck FD.

The coverage, for that i pay every year is all of Europe.

So i think Flitedeck VFR must be a part of these Package, because nobudy want to pay two times.

At this time there are only some countries covered by Flitedeck VFR. Especially in this case the entry should be free for users of Flitestar and Jeppview.

best regards

Nach der Aero während 1 Woche unterwegs mit FlightDeck VFR, FD undTC

Hallo Freunde

Einen Tag nach der Aero machte ich mich auf den Weg von Zürich über Österreich nach Ungarn, Tschechische Republik und die Slowakei. Ideale Test Bedingungen. Ich verwendete ein normales iPad, ein mini iPad, ein iPhone 4 mit dem "Air Nav Pro" und das eingebaute GPS Garmin 695.
Vorerst mal was allgemeines über die praktische Anwendung vom iPad während dem Flug im Cockpit.
Für die Flugvorbereitung und Planung ist diese App schon wirklich Klasse, sehr…

Erfahrungsbericht

Hi Pilots,



schön, dass jetzt die linke Leiste ausblendbar ist. Ich würde die Datenfenster einfach ganz unten am Bildschirm immer sichtbar lassen. Platz ist ja genug. Wünschenswert wäre auch noch die angezeigte Höhe über Ground. Ein Logbuch und eine Aufzeichnung des Flugweges wäre auch sehr komfortabel. Was noch fehlt, ist auch noch das Wetter zumindest METAR und TAF an den Plätzen.



Ansonsten finde ich die APP sehr gelungen. Ich habe sie im Flug von Berlin nach… Continue

Update vor der AERO

Habe kurz vor der AERO den Update gemacht. Das iPad wie das mini iPad schafften den Update nicht. Ich musste das JeppFD VFR löschen und neu installieren.

Die Karten Darstellung wurde nur leicht verbessert. Das Flugzeugsymbol ist zu gross, diffus, nicht präzise und deckt mir zu viele Informationen ab. Der Kreis um das Flugzeug kann ja hübsch sein, macht aber keinen Sinn. Das GPS liefert eine Position auf wenige Meter genau, der Pfeil verdeckt uns je nach Zoom einige hundert…

Meine ersten Flüge mit dem FliteDeck VFR
Ich war So und Mo über 5 Stunden bei sensationellem Wetter in der Luft. Vor allem über den Alpen via Matterhorn ins Tessin und bis über 14'000 ft.
Meine ersten Erfahrungen: 
Super auf dem Flugplatz und in der Nahverkehrszone.
VFR Überland und vor allem in den Alpen viel zu wenig Ortsnamen. Eine exakte Position kann nur selten gemeldet werden, da die nächste angeschriebene Stadt oder Ortschaft weit weg ist.…
