The latest version of the Aerovie aviation app—v4.72—now offers enhanced features for the free plan: geo-referenced approach charts, VFR and IFR high and low maps, free flight plan filing and some weather information. For Avidyne navigators, Aerovie has introduced two-way flight plan transfer, display of attitude information using the Avidyne AHRS data, location using the Avidyne GPS position information and ADS-B IN weather and traffic.
The Aerovie airports section has been updated with easier-to-read frequencies and new waypoint management features such as waypoint deletion, go direct-to and add to flight plan. For airports that don’t have a depiction available from FAA data, Aerovie now draws its own thumbnail view. According to the company, “On an iPad, you can now drag the airport window around the screen and reference it while using the map simultaneously. On the iPhone, swipe it up and down to reference information while using maps.”
National Weather Service forecasts are now available in the Aerovie weather section’s local forecast option.
