New Aviation Weather App for iPads Displays XM Weather Data
DAC International’s GDC64Wx iPad weather application is now available at the Apple iTunes Store. The app allows iPad users to view weather in the U.S. and Canada when connected to an XM Receiver through DAC International’s GDC64 tablet to aircraft interface unit. Current display capabilities include U.S. and Canadian radar, lightning strikes, shear, cloud tops and satellite imagery. While not designed as a navigational tool, the app can also overlay the aircraft’s last known position on the map. Users can zoom and pan to display desired map contents.
