Garmin Pilot for Android Receives Major Update
We are excited to announce that customers utilizing Garmin Pilot on their Android mobile device will notice major enhancements in version 5.0, including a new user interface reflecting the latest Android design concepts, enhancements to flight planning, chart binders, scratch pad and more.
The home screen main menu has been transformed into a navigation drawer and split screen menu items that are now displayed in tabs for ease of use. The user interface has been redesigned to provide quick and easy access to pertinent information in-flight.
To access new features found within the Flight Plan section of Garmin Pilot, pilots can easily tap the header from the 'Map' page to create or edit a flight plan. The addition of a new summary section also incorporates extra flight plan details, such as distance, fuel, ETA, ETE and more. Summary details can be selected to display flight plan data using winds aloft calculations during the planning phase of flight, or pilots can leverage GPS information to display real-time flight plan data throughout an actual flight.
In addition to flight planning enhancements, Garmin Pilot now automatically generates a Chart Binder for all enroute airports within an active flight plan. As customers build a flight plan, charts are automatically downloaded and separated into departure, destination and flight plan binders for quick and easy access to Instrument Approach Procedures (IAPs) throughout a route of flight.
Additional Android user-interface enhancements include:
- Multiple-page scratch pad options
- Light and dark color themes
- Night time SafeTaxi diagrams
- VIRB XE Integration
