Air Navigation iOS
Thank you for your interest in Air Navigation. Air Navigation was developed with General Aviation in mind, however it was quickly adopted by pilots of various flying vehicles including paragliders, gliders, ultra light, single or multi-engine airplanes, helicopters and hot air balloons.
Air Navigation is an affordable, yet powerful flight planning and real-time navigation application. In version 5, the application user interface was overhauled to make it easier to use and add various new features. We hope you’ll enjoy the product as much as we enjoyed working on it.
After installation of the application, at first launch, the system will ask for authorization to access location data (GPS). You should allow GPS access to Air Navigation otherwise realtime navigation functionalities will not work properly. If your device do not have an integrated GPS device, you should get some of the ones advised on page 5.
After launching Air Navigation for the first time, the map should be centered to your current location. The application has an internal waypoints database and you should see waypoints in the vicinity on the map. Please note that NO map in the background is installed with the application. You can install a map from various free-of-charge or commercial sources in the «Map Store» module within the app or from the «Addons» page of the User Account Website. You can find more information on how to install maps/charts in the next page.
Should you wish to change length, speed or altitude units, you can do so from the «Settings» panel.
The user interface is different according to the device that it is being used
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).
Besides the moving map and navigation instruments, various tools are available to help with flight planning and other tasks.
The EFIS module is a graphic interface which displays real 3D terrain while flying. In order to use it, you will first need to download the 3D data from the Map Store.
Get the full potential of all the features connecting Air Navigation with your Xample Services account.
