The moving map is the main instrument of Air Navigation. It is used for real time navigation as well as route planning or creation of user waypoints. In Air Navigation, you can create a route/waypoint directly from the moving map. It is possible to add intermediate waypoints to your current route during a flight (to avoid bad weather conditions for example). By default, the moving map is centered on your current location, north oriented. By pressing to the symbol in the top left corner, you can toggle between:

Image2.jpgNorth oriented, current location in the center of the screen, moving;

Image1.jpg

Image3.jpgTrack oriented, current location at 1/3 the bottom of the screen, rotating to match current track, moving;

Image4.jpgPanned mode;

Touching and moving the map will switch to panned mode. In this case the map will be moved to the location of your choice, north oriented. It will not move to follow your current location, instead, the aircraft symbol will move on the map, possibly leave the screen area. You can center the map again and restore map movements by pressing once on the symbol in the top left corner.

Touching an area of interest on the map will reveal a popup with useful information. Touchable items are:

  • Waypoints: elevation, type, full name for Navaids and their frequency, Airports runway and frequency information. We also

included: Sunrise/Sunset time and Bearing/Distance from current position.

  • Airspace: lower and upper limits, name, class and additional information.
  • METAR/TAF stations: Weather information of an Airport. You enable them in the «Map Otions» menu.

Fourth.jpgMarginal VMC (VFR only controlled)

Fifth.jpgIMC - Instrumental Meteorological Conditions (Only IFR flights)

You can simplify the information of METAR/TAF by enabling the option “Raw METAR/TAF” under «Settings».

On iPad, pressing outside the popup will hide it, on iPhone you have to press the close button in the top right corner of the popup.

When in «Flight mode» (default), pressing on the name of the waypoint will ask you if you want to select this waypoint and affect it to an instrument or direct to t he point in the moving map.
