How to find your way? </ h1>
ForeFlight </ h2>
ForeFlight Mobile, a visualization and flight planning panel, one of the most popular apps for the iPhone and iPad, offers georeferencing – a fancy term to show where the plane is on approach charts and airport diagrams.
ForeFlight’s AF / D covers 220 countries and includes databases from AOPA, Universal Weather and UVTripPlanner, FAA, and ForeFlight’s proprietary search. Frequencies, runway details, diagrams, phone numbers, fuel prices, hours of operation, sunrise / sunset times, METAR, TAF, upper winds are also available.
ForeFlight Mobile for iPad presents the weather brilliantly on thirteen different weather maps, ranging from reflective radar composite ceilings and PIREPs. Pass through each map and visually inform your flight itinerary. There is time lapse and tracing of roads on one of the maps, including VFR / IFR charts and world maps, data map.
ForeFlight Mobile includes approaches, departures, arrivals and diagrams for US and Canadian IFR systems. Get a ForeFlight US Mobile Pro subscription to see your plane directly on US plates. On the iPad, the “Plates” tab visually organizes instrument procedures to support your workflow. Much better than paper.
BAD ELF </ h2>
The Bad Elf GPS is a small, room-sized gadget that plugs into the connector on your iOS device and works. It is of a disconcerting simplicity. It also has a USB connector on the edge so you can charge your iDevice at the same time you use the GPS.
The performance of the Bad Elf GPS is good: Its lock time (the time to acquire a GPS position) is 45 seconds or less (the average in good conditions to be 10 to 15 seconds), provides accuracy 2, 5 meters (conditions permitting) and it will work up to 60,000 feet vertically and at speeds up to 1,000 MPH.
The Bad Elf GPS is an ideal solution if you want to add GPS to an existing iOS device. Bad Elf has also released GPS for the light connector, which brings precise positioning to your favorite non-cellular iOS device.
