Grounded pilot 101's Review of Air Navigation ProReviewed on 9/5/19 1:53 PM
I’m a B747/777 Captain with a major airline in the US. I use this app when flying my small plane in California and another plane in Spain I don’t use it when flying for the airline App is mostly user friendly and works well, but it takes time to learn how to use it. I use it in my iPad mini4 and iPhone 8S Pros: Can get data bases for just about every country in the world Very good graphics Cons For many countries this app requires that you pay a yearly fee for information they get for free And app isn’t free At first it’s not an easy app to use. Instructions are almost non existent.Lots of trial and errors to figure it out. Company needs good user manuals and online tutorials No IFR charts provided

Patricio79's Review of Air Navigation ProReviewed on 9/5/19 1:53 PM
I am a paying customer of the app, support is virtually useless, the app basically only support a few external devices for ahrs and ads-b. When i asked for support with the one (Stratux) i use which btw is one of the most used in the world the denied support and sent me to the public forums where the device is hacked to emulate one of the few that airnavigator pro at the expense ofmissing barometer altitude and other features. Really dissapointing for a service that i am paying almost 100 usd per year. I do not recommend it and when renewal time comes will look for an alternative like Foreflight.

The Dude that wasted $1.99's Review of Air Navigation ProReviewed on 9/5/19 1:53 PM
If you need terrain awareness, this app does it well. Very pricey, and misleading when it comes to what’s offered for initial subscription. App usage is clunky and not very intuitive. Every feature add-on requires a separate subscription. Example. you have to pay $.99 for each flight plan(yes each, not to enable the function, but for each), need charts and access to procedures such as airport diagrams, approaches, those are all separate subscriptions, in addition to paying the basic subscription rate. I purchased a subscription, and have since turned off auto-renewal.
NRV Pilot's Review of Air Navigation ProReviewed on 9/14/18 1:41 PM
Used to be a great app. Low cost. Nice features. But the user interface, especially as it applies to getting charts, obstacle data, etc., is beyond confusing. Maybe the translation is suffering, but it’s almost incomprehensible. I’ve been a user for many years, but no longer. Also, the user manual is many versions old. Almost useless. Too bad. It used to be a good app.

gwbburg's Review of Air Navigation ProReviewed on 12/16/18 1:03 PM
I recently decided to try ANP as a replacement for my AirMap 500 when it died (instead of buying a new handheld costing at least $800). I had already learned that the built-in iPhone GPS reception is not adequate for use inside the cockpit of my Piper Warrior. However, following the advice of the ANP author, I purchased a TomTom iPhone mount. This resulted in excellent GPS reception with the iPhone mounted on the yoke (I kludged my old AirMap mounting bracket to hold the TomTom mount). But the really good news is that ANP is very well designed and well supported. Even with the need to buy the TomTom mount (about $90), it is a bargain. In my past GPS experience I have always preferred to use map mode, so I won't comment on the simulated instruments. Using ANP I tried map mode both with free downloaded background maps and with a sectional map, which cost only $.99. Although I thought I would like the sectional best, I actually found that it was too cluttered and busy for the background on a small device. However, with the free background map installed, and ANP's airport and airspace markings enabled, I find the screen much more readable, especially when you only have time to glance at it. In this mode the airplane mark and the airports and airspace markings stand out nicely over a muted background with towns, roads, shorelines, etc. I like the map scale marker that is displayed in the upper right, and it is very useful to be able to zoom in and out either by the usual two fingered pinching, or by stretching or shrinking the scale marker. I tried ANP in both North up and Course up modes. North up mode has the advantage that the background map legends are horizontal if you are looking for a landmark. But I prefer Course up mode, so that keeping the route vertical is a good visual indicator for being on course. The airport and airspace labels are nicely rotated in Course mode so you can read them as well. With the TomTom mount the reception is good enough that the map rotation is very smooth during turns. The only minor disappointment is that there is no N arrow on the map, so you need to look at the numerical course indicator to find out the actual direction you are heading. I found ANP to be a very worthy successor to my departed AirMap. It is easy to setup, easy to use, and the hi-res color display is a big improvement. I was also pleased that I had problem with glare or too much sunlight (probably helped by the anti-glare sheet stuck on my iPhone screen). ANP is perfect for VFR flying, and would also work for IFR routing. And the fact that it is installed on my iPhone and always in my pocket is very handy!

Westcoastflyer's Review of Air Navigation ProReviewed on 12/16/18 1:03 PM
This program is incredibly buggy. You can not rely on it to operate when you need it, therefore it falls into the realm of junk ware,and definitely not worth the hefty price tag. The software coding is extremely poor and everything runs very laggy compared to other gps mapping program. Something is wrong in the way it handles GPS tracking. Without a waypoint database his program is useless for flight planning. It's worth $1.99 and that's all until they get it working right. The map store is a great feature though, but everything else is bad. Save your money and skip this program until they revise it.
Cosimgood's Review of Air Navigation ProReviewed on 12/16/18 1:03 PM
Used this week in the Piper worked OK. Need to add Airspace to the maps and get rid of the Turn Indicator on main page and add larger font for Tracking , Speed, and ETA. Would be a nice feature if you could turn off NDB's and VOR's on display, also, quick way to pick recent waypoints would a benefit. For the price makes handy backup or with added features would great for rented aircraft that doe not have GPS installled.
MacManus01's Review of Air Navigation ProReviewed on 12/16/18 1:03 PM
So far the best of only two aviation moving maps available for the iPhone. But still seriously lacking in functionality when compared with what you can get for the Palm. Need to add terrain, airspace, attitude, customizable database, flight planning functions, and pertinent nav info to the map screen (ground speed, ETE, cross-track, etc.). FlightMaster for the Palm should be the model. Looking forward to future improvements.

C172Pilot's Review of Air Navigation ProReviewed on 12/16/18 1:03 PM
• The database is ok especially for the money invested. I would like to be able to touch the airport icon and add the airport to my flight plan instead of having to go to any editor. • Secondly, it would be nice, when you touch and airport icon, it would also tell you how far you were from the airport selected. • It has no weather information or FBO information, fuel prices etc. With no weather, there is no information on winds. • I could not find any place to load aircraft or emergency information into. So it cannot guestimate your ETA • It cannot file flight plans electronically. I could not find this feature if it does. Also during sectional zoom, it just magnifies the sectional and does not switch to a TAC where available. • It does have both MH MC indications as well as ETE and ETA which Foreflight does not. • Screen is easy to read gives a lot of useful information during the flight. • Shows bearing and track • A free elevation map is available and you can switch between maps from a menu. • The simulated instruments do really work, although not always very quickly. This is an iPad issue I believe. • It has both north up and track up. • For people without the 3G/GPS version of the iPad, it works with a selected external Bluetooth GPS receiver. I have not seen it work, but the option is there in the settings menu. Probably more accurate than the iPads internal one. • With this app and a few others added to your iPad, you really won't need anything else. There are plenty of aviation weather, FBO, airport apps that along with this app would work just fine and not have to spend $70 to $100 a year on charts. • Once Apple releases iOS 4.x for the iPad and multi-tasking, you'd be able to switch between apps at the touch of the button and continue where the last app left off.
Monty51's Review of Air Navigation ProReviewed on 12/16/18 1:03 PM
Wonderful app for VFR flight, IFR flight, too, I would imagine, but I'm not IFR rated. My only complaint right now is the inability to subcribe to charts because I haven't received the code from the publisher. E-mail to the developer has been unanswered. Would be nice to get the latest charts.
michakaufman's Review of Air Navigation ProReviewed on 12/16/18 1:03 PM
I'm not sure what's better, the app or the ultra-fast support this developer is offering. Updates very frequently and offers great value for VFR pilots. Worth every dollar. Recommended!
Blc131's Review of Air Navigation ProReviewed on 12/16/18 1:03 PM
This application is impressive considering it is using gps for the direction ind, alt, VORs, and speed indicator. GPS on the iPhone isn't going to respond as smooth as your garmin but it works. Although it may be difficult to use true compus data for this app due to the fact that you would then have to mount the iphone perfectly in the plane, it would still be a great option. One other suggestion is to add an email option for exporting the flight plan and add frequencies to the airport info when you click on the airport icon on the GPS map. Also would be good to show radial in digital representation instead of just analog. Nice job. I like it. Hope to see some additional features soon.

This app is amazing if you live in a first world|well developed country. I used it through out my training in south Africa and for that I give it 5 starts however when I moved back to Kenya map options are limited and the only available ONC chart is from the 1970s hence lacks a lot of current information. Developers should consider adding more maps for such said countries
Hanson24's Review of Air Navigation ProReviewed on 11/17/18 12:32 PM
Out of the eight "new additions" to this app, NONE of them are new. This is an aviation developer that treats pilots like they are dealing with a used car salesman. My guess is they update their app on a daily basis to negate the negative reviews that they consistently receive.

Mr DWD's Review of Air Navigation ProReviewed on 11/17/18 12:32 PM
This is truly an amazing product and well worth having in the cockpit for situational awareness. What would be a nice enhancement would be holding patterns that one could select either over a beacon or any point on the map and using the current aircraft position, show the entry and the pattern either standard or non standard. Also using the speed, plot the course.

TrikeCI's Review of Air Navigation ProReviewed on 11/17/18 12:32 PM
Really great VFR app with a few issues I discovered once I took it flying. The lack of good weather info is the biggest one. I am using the app in the US and the QNH is given in hPA, which cannot be used to set the altimeter. TAF is typically missing and the weather info remarks are often formatted in a rather difficult to read way. A weather overlay is needed with different parameters such as wind and precipitation. Radar would be good and the app eventually needs to support ADSB. For now I’d like to load this weather info while still on the ground and then use it offline during flight. Also there is a lot of info missing from the A/FD. I’d like this app to provide all the info including an aerial picture of the airport. The route display using custom waypoints should show more info on distance, estimated fuel, etc. in the regular view and not just in edit view. And finally I’d like to easily measure distances while en-route. One of the great features available is the easy scratch pad. It also seems that while this app is cheaper to start, it adds up quickly with a high granularity of chargeable items as opposed to a bundled subscription.
a very iphone user's Review of Air Navigation ProReviewed on 11/17/18 12:32 PM
best air navigation on iphone that i tried. I love the way you can overlay the free geo maps, and the ability to add your own custom waypoints. one thing they need to improve is that the frequency information for some airports is missing, otherwise I would have given them 5 stars. However, consider this application only as an in-flight navigation system. It's really weak on the flight planning side. For weather info consider a different app like aeroweather. Very quick response by email from customer service (important also). BTW, I read some reviews that complain about not having heading or distance information in flight, elevation data, and ability to select which waypoints to show. All these are available! But some require configuration or loading additional database. One thing I was disappointed to see in the latest version (4.2) is that rendering the geo maps is slower than the previous version (4.1). Not that it is a big problem. It still finishes the rendering in a couple of seconds, but looks like the speed optimization that they are using in 4.2 is working in the opposite way.
aaronrryan's Review of Air Navigation ProReviewed on 11/17/18 12:32 PM
The features of this app compete with ForeFlight, Garmin and WingX. How ever if you use a flight sim and wish to log your flights and post to the web, this is the only one that I found could do it. The 3D terrain Modeling along with airspace diagrams on the elevation graph, make this app very unique. Great job, I look forward to future enhancements.

This app's pro version includes terrain data for Mexico! I looked for this for months. In the route planning mode you get a cross section of the route with altitudes - very useful for planning trips in the mountains. Inflight you see the terrain altitudes for the next 9.4 nm - a great safety enhancement. Great app. Just need to allow us to put instruments next to the artificial horizon.
Is that so?'s Review of Air Navigation ProReviewed on 11/17/18 12:32 PM
When I bought this app one could download sectionals one at a time for 99 cents. Now one must buy the entire data base for $10. When you only need one sectional, it just adds to the cost and hassle factor of flying. Using air nav for your sectional was not perfect, but it worked, and with some neat features. Now one must put up with that hassle AND pay $10. What is going to happen when the FAA starts to charge for data?

dppilot's Review of Air Navigation ProReviewed on 11/17/18 12:32 PM
I was Looking for a moving map with accurate calculations on all trip related information (ETE, ETA, groundspeed, etc.). The calculations are quite good and match up with our airplane's FMS. However the free maps do not present well when zoomed out. First, you can only zoom out to a 100 mile scale. Second, when zoomed out there are no geographical boundaries like state lines or city names, so being able to tell where you are at a glance is not possible. When zoomed in the detail is excellent which is probably more suitable for short trips. The free maps have to be downloaded one state at a time (for U.S.). The app crashed multiple times; most often when trying to pan the map. Rendering was surprisingly slow given the map data was downloaded and not being pulled from the Internet. The database of fixes and waypoints appears to be extensive and the search feature is very good. Compiling a flight plan took some work and a few references to the user manual. It was not easy to change on the fly when clearances changed or given a direct-to clearance. In fact I couldn't get the direct-to function (as described in the user manual) to work at all. I must've been doing something wrong. That option wasn't present in the pop-up menu like it is pictured in the manual. There's probably many features that are good that I did not explore since I was mainly interested in the moving map and tracking. But I'm disappointed that I paid $37 and came up short.
Chris from Sweden's Review of Air Navigation ProReviewed on 11/17/18 12:32 PM
This is a great VFR app for a very reasonable price. Out of the two things I missed, one has now been implemented, the scratchpad in the lockscreen, which is much more clever than the one found in e.g. Foreflight. The only other thing I wish for is the ability to customize the instrument layout. I would for example want to have a screen with some notes, where I could write down dep/arr info and keep that visible all the time. Plus to rearrange the other items on the instr layout to just have the data I want there. Other than that, this is just a great app with great potential.
Burpgun's Review of Air Navigation ProReviewed on 11/17/18 12:32 PM
I bought this app to have back NAV on trip from Livermore CA to central TX to get a bird home I bought. It worked unbelievably well, with one caveat: I have difficulty in figuring out how to input a flight-plan. I have done it, but it is not intuitive and I would not attempt it in-flight. The D-> (Direct To) feature is simple and much easier than many other handhelds. I routinely fly cross- country with it open and running and follow my D -> trackline as backup to my Helm 650. As well the Nearest Airport feature is very easy to use. Highly recommended, just wish the flight-planning were easier to use.

This is the best iPad aviation app I have ever seen. The amount of information available is staggering. I am going to be mounting my iPad mini to the control panel of my aircraft and use it as my primary flight display. The app has even worked at over 40,000 ft. In a Beech Jet 400. It matched the aircraft FMS and GPS down to the tenth of a knot! The altitude feature is equally impressive. Weight and balance calculation plus 3D real time terrain data makes for an app that will have all other GPS and app makers scrambling to catch up. It can nickel and dime you, paying for terrain data and maps but it is not so bad and you own the app! Do yourself a favor and get this app. You will not be disappointed.

As a student pilot I had been pricing garmin gps units. Even the used 295's were selling for $500+ on eBay. So I bought an iPad and this app instead and just in time for me to take on my first solo cross country. The documentation could be a bit better for how to use it to it's full potential, but I was able to create my flight plan easily. Took it on my cross country trip and it worked great! Being able to see a nearby airport or vor and just tap it to see all the key info such as frequencies and runways is much easier than trying to read the numbers on a sectional chart. If you fly and want an easy to use in flight gps with a great display... This is it!

If you're flying in Western Europe and some other non-US locations (New Zealand, Australia, S. America) this seems like it could be a leading choice for a moving map navigation app. Loading the free openstreetmap.org maps, or paid aviation charts, for a variety of countries is very easy. I'm not going to review the app functions in detail - they all seem to work as advertised, both in the planning stage and in flight. For myself, I'm a low time VFR pilot in the US that mainly makes 2-3 hr. trips to build experience (and have expensive lunches,) and I still plot my flights on paper charts with the rigor that my instructor drilled into me. I thought I'd try AIr Navigation Pro as a GPS backup and for this it is very good. Transferring my paper routes is easy and monitoring my progress in-flight is reassuring. The Air Nav Pro instruments work well and are a great backup feature that I hope I'll never need. I often fly close to mountainous areas so I particularly appreciate the elevation profile ahead. So my niche is a low cost, lower function alternative to Foreflight or WingX. Here is my only grumble. When I purchased, the top in-app buys were 99c individual sectionals, but now one can only buy charts for the whole US, for $9.99. Because I live in L.A. I also need the TAC, which means second set of TACs, also for the whole country and also for $9.99. And they're updated twice a year. $40/yr in maps (at time of writing) is peanuts compared to the rest of my hobby so I don't mind, but it puts the cost of AIr Navigation Pro much closer to that of Foreflight. I don't own the latter but once I start venturing further from home it seems to have planning and editing features that more powerful and polished than those in Air Nav, such as fuel pricing on the map and a more logical way to add waypoints. Air Navigation Pro is a good app at a reasonable price that is great for Europe (where the app developer is based) and some other non-US locations. For low time US users it's a good entry to GPS moving maps but the pricing structure might make you consider alternatives.

I've been waiting a long time for an affordable flight navigation app for the iPhone. I've been using PocketFMS for the past years on a Dell Axim, and although PocketFMS has great features, I've never been too enthusiastic about the user friendliness. Add a sluggish Dell Axim PDA, in-flight crashes or GPS signal lost (and almost impossible to restore) and it was clear I needed something else. Let me start that I like Air Navigation Pro . It's easy to use and is very responsive. I don't fly that often, so I don't want an expensive solution with high subscription fees. Let me share my experiences after two flights, using a TomTom car-kit (this boosts GPS reception, made it easy to attach my iPhone against the side window of the Cessna 172 and the power cable ensured charging while flying). The good: - The interface is like you can expect from an iPhone/iPad app: easy to operate, finger pinch to zoom in/out, drag to move the map, etc. - The free provided airspace information and free back-ground maps are good enough for me. In fact, I find them more pleasant than PocketFMS. Not all information from a VFR map is there, but when I'm flying I don't care about where all obstacles are (I'm flying VFR, and see where I'm going; I always do a thorough flight preparation anyhow using official maps, so I know where to expect peculiarities concerning airspace and other need to know restrictions). - Anti-cluttering works nicely (better than PocketFMS IMHO). - Airspace filtering: you can set it to only show airspace within plus minus 1000 feet. Very convenient while flying. - Fast (on iPhone 4) - The app can be configured to act as a web-server. At home through your wifi connection you can access the app through your desktop web-browser and download flight details (logbook, breadcrumb trail which can be viewed in Google Earth, flight plans). - Stable. I have not encountered crashes (other than trying to connect to the GoVFR website, see below). The bad: - Version 3.5.0 should enable you to upload navigation plans from GoVFR.com. Doesn't work, the app just exits (note: I checked out GoVFR, but as it does not yet have airspace information for the Netherlands, it's of no value to me). - European flight maps (can be purchased) for use in Air Navigation Pro: outrageously overpriced (definitely not "for a fair price" as stated on the vendor's website). The US sectionals are indeed very cheap, but paying over twice the amount I pay for a paper copy of a given flight map (that I have only use for in the app) is over the top (compare: almost 40 times as expensive than a US sectional in-app purchase). - Selection of next way-point algorithm can be improved. For my first flight (with Air Navigation Pro) I was following a navigation plan that was a flight starting/ending at the same aerodrome. This also meant that the paths from and two were close to each other (ca. 15 miles apart). During the second half of the flight, visibility was rapidly deteriorating, so I decided to select "direct" to the airport. As the weather improved again, I loaded the original navigation plan back in. Air Navigation Pro selected the closest way-point, which was on the opposite leg, instead of selecting the way-point I was directly flying towards (I was aiming straight at it and also almost back on the original navigation track). This can easily been improved in a next version. - There is no link to i-Flyte, the checklist app from the same vendor. Although you can start Air Navigation Pro from the checklist app, it is not possible to do so the other way round. You can use Air Navigation Pro to keep running in the background, unfortunately the checklist app does not, so you always have to start from scratch. I expect to be able to access my checklists directly from Air Navigation Pro. Shouldn't be too hard to do. ...and the wanted (in other words dear developer: please please please add to the next version :-) - Add extensions to files downloaded through the web-server. E.g. adding .kml to a breadcrumb trail, would make it immediately recognizable for Google Earth. - North up arrow in the map. Although it is very easy to switch between "heading up" or "north up" displays, it is hard to tell where North is on the "heading up" display. - Flight plan construction: please add rubber-banding, i.e. enable dragging of track between two way-points and creating a new waypoint in-between when letting go. Now adding an additional way point between way points is cumbersome. Also dragging existing user-defined way points should be possible. - Add the possibility (just like PocketFMS) to upload own (scanned) charts. This would mean all of us with paper copies of approach charts are able (for personal use) to scan them in and use them in Air Navigation Pro. All it takes are just two coordinates on the map (e.g. top right and bottom left) to ensure it fits in nicely. This is a must IMHO, especially with the current outrageous prices for approach charts. - Create an overview of all data necessary to file a flight plan (e.g. providing distances from way points from a VOR). Bottom line: I give this app 4 stars. It will provide you with basic flight navigation functions that should be more than sufficient for the average VFR pilot. If above wishes are addressed, I will happily upgrade my rating to 5 stars.

I wanted to start using my iPad in the cockpit but didn't want a spend a fortune to get started. This app lets you use your iPhone as the GPS for your iPad, and it works great! I payed for the US Sectionals and tested and had great results. I started with a full charge on my iPhone and my iPad and flew for exactly 1 hour. Both the iPad and the iPhone were at 79% battery at the end of the flight. (my iPhone is a 4S and the iPad 2 was at full brightness). The maps worked well and the airport information was very helpful. I felt much more comfortable with this tool in the cockpit. Tested linking the app to X-Plane to learn the app and was very impressed. I'm much happier with this than my trial of Foreflight and I will continue to use this on every flight.

I purchased Air Nav Pro and attempted to download the 3D maps. I need 4 maps total at this time, but only 1 will actually download. Three of the U.S. states that I need will not even give me the option to download. I have sent two emails to support, but have not gotten a reply back from either email. I would not purchase this app if you are wanting the 3D maps to load and work correctly, because there is no way to know which maps are actually available and which ones are not.

Excellent program specially for making flight plans and if you don't have VOR or DME its a good alternative. Worth every penny.
Kodera's Review of Air Navigation ProReviewed on 11/17/18 12:32 PM
GREAT APP! .1 version has some needed chgs. Revision to fuzzy maps... Deleted everything. Re-downladed app and maps and maps are clear again. The USA sectionals when zooming down to a 6 mile setting display properly but you see very little around your plane. Zooming out one level more produces a fuzzy Vfr sectional that is unreadable. If this is fixed then it's a great update otherwise it's unusable.
