The iPhone/iPod must be connected on a wifi network. Additionally the wifi network must be the same network as your desktop computer.


The web server must be turned on in the «Settings». If the web server is on, its network address will appear just below the web server switch (see screenshot beside). Example: http://192.168.46:8080

To access the embedded web server, type this address in the URL bar in a reasonably up to date Internet Browser (Firefox 3, Safari 4, Explorer 8) on your computer and press return. Air Navigation web site should appear in your navigator.


If you fail to connect, try several times and on diferent browsers.

Note: if you have the Bonjour application installed on your computer, the web server will appear automatically as part of the detected websites, in this case you don’t have to type the IP address manually. Bonjour is installed automatically on Mac computers, on Windows it comes together with iTunes.

Should you wish to install the plugin manually, please download the latest installer at this address:


On the browser, available data is grouped by type: Navigation plans, Waypoints, Airspaces, Recorded flights, Logbook (see screenshot below).

Press on a group bar to disclose its content. Some data types can only be uploaded or deleted (Airspaces or maps), some can only be downloaded and deleted (Recorded flights) and some others can be uploaded, downloaded or deleted (Waypoints, Navigation plans, logbook).


To download a file, press the green arrow on the right side of the file. The red circle is used to delete a file.

To import a file in a particular group, press the file icon with the blue arrow on the right side of the group name. A selection popup will appear on top of the page. On most modern browser, after a file is selected, it will start uploading immediately. On older browser, you may need to press the «Upload» button to start uploading.

To upload a PDF document and associate it to a specific airfield, you must add the ICAO code of the airport where you want the PDF to appear at the beginning of the pdf name ( Example: LSGG _Geneva_approach.pdf ). You can then upload the document in the «Appcharts» section. If Air Navigation cannot find an airfield matching the 4 letter prefix of the file, an error message will appear and the PDF will not be installed.


You can also send PDF documents by Email to your iPhone/iPad. If you add the 4 letter ICAO code as a prefix to the PDF name, you can use the «Open in Air Navigation» feature of the mail client. The pdf file will be automatically installed in Air Navigation.

Note: You can also send routes in GPX format by email to your iPhone/iPad. Then, you can use the «Open in Air Navigation» feature of the mail client. The route file will be installed in Air Navigation.
