AirTrack 3.0 Released!

Posted on October 15, 2011 20:57 by skyfox

At long last, AirTrack 3.0 is out!

It took a while mostly because we had to rewrite a lot of the code in order to consume less memory, just so that we could use it for new things. But after a lot of effort and development we are introducing AirTrack 3.0, an improved version of the App, bringing GEO map mode to the MFD, new cloud based air account services allowing seamless flight plan and waypoints syncing, support for the external AHRS hardware from Levil Aviation and an *experimental* cloud based charts viewer amongst many other things and an endless number of bugs corrected.

In summary, 3.0 has the following additional features:

On the MFD and PFD:
#################

- A new GEO mode in the MFD now displays the world border and coast line contours as a background map. The whole world is included!

- VOR and APP modes on the MFD now have different sensitivities (15+15 degree and 2.5+2.5 degree cones respectively).

On the FMC:
##########

- Lookup of VORs, Airports and NDB's by name in addition to ID.

- A new direct-to button replaced the EXEC allowing one waypoint direct-to immediate selection.

New: Cloud Services:
################

With the signup of an Air Account users can now:

- Sync flight plans across multiple devices - Create a flight plan on one device and it will turn up on your other devices automatically.

- Sync saved waypoints across multiple devices and manage them online; create a new waypoint anywhere and that point will be sent up to the cloud and down to all your other devices automatically.

- A new cloud-based navigation data manager now allows you to upgrade and download new AIRAC cycles to all your devices seamlessly.

- Navigraph AIRAC cycles can now be redeemed online for all devices in one go.

Charts Viewer:
###########

A new cloud based Charts viewer allows you to download navigation charts and approach plates to your device for in-flight reading.

Note: This feature is EXPERIMENTAL; please don't ask for more charts! We're working on it.

Other new features:
###############

- A new GPS data screen is now available under settings displaying direct GPS readings.

- The localities database was updated to the one from geonames.org. New localities data is now available (such as its population) on the waypoints details viewer.

- And last but not least, we are proud to announce that AirTrack is now compatible and can be connected to the external AHRS-G Mini product from Levil Aviation, allowing for a more accurate measurement of attitude, air speed and pressure altitude. Please see http://aviation.levil.com/AHRS_mini.htm for details.

################

This is a brand new release so we apologize if any problems arise from it and we ask you to let us know if so ASAP so the we can correct them. If nothing else, enjoy AirTrack NG.

Yours,
The AirTrack team.
