– Terrain awareness 2D and 3D (requires 3D data for EFIS to be installed)
– Improved attitude indication. The attitude should now closely match what you can expect from a mechanical horizon.
– Manual navigation in 3D view: when the application is in “EDIT MODE”, you can freely pitch, course, move forward/backward by using the controls in the 3D view. You can also change the altitude with the altitude scale
– Screen lock (swipe screen with 3 fingers right to left, swipe left to right to unlock)
– Notepad: when screen lock is on, you can now write useful information on the screen with you finger (ATC frequencies, Transponder codes, etc). You can switch between 6 notepad areas by swiping 3 fingers up and down. 3 taps with 3 fingers on the screen or pressing the red sign on the top left corner, will delete the notepad area you are working on.
– Improved night mode, will now dim the entire screen instead of just the map background
– Customizable map background color for areas where no maps are available.
Changes for Greek Section
– Free Map 1:250k for Greece is updated fixing the issue with the blank areas while zooming in. Update can be downloaded from Air Navigation’s Map Store (after update application must be restarted).
– Database was updated by adding the following ZZZZ airfields:
- Matkaris Aerosports Olympiada,
- PREL Wing & Rotor ltd,
- Neos Zigos,
- Thiva 90,
- Flampouro Elasonas,
- Larisa Airclub – Terpsithea,
- Edessa Panagitsa,
- Nea Kavala – Polykastro.
Getting a correct calibration for EFIS mode
- The calibration is valid for a pitch offset but not yaw or roll. Therefore the iPad can be tilted back or forth but must be aligned laterally and horizontally. Otherwise the attitude will not be correct.
- On calibration, the iPad has to have rotation unlocked. This is because we have to affect the correct axis to the algorithm and we need to know how is the interface orientation.
- Once calibrated, the screen rotation has to be locked, to avoid unexpected interface rotation in case of turbulences.
- The iPad must be placed in such a way to have the less possible vibrations. Vibrations are an issue especially when pulling a 45° roll turn with the aircraft resulting in a saturation of the sensors.
- The algorithm uses the current ground speed of the aircraft as part of the attitude computation. A wrong speed/speed of 0 will result in inaccuracies in the attitude.
Air Navigation Pro is available for the iPhone and the iPad on the App Store.
