Thanks John, that sounds like it will work. Thanks for the clarification as I did not realize the geo- reference was accurate in the Docs view.. However it would be great if you could also make the floating stopwatch accessible on the Maps view. That solves a hold at a non standard fix.
Your customer support is awesome.

One other note as well: as long as your GPS is on, the plate in the Documents view will show your current position as well, if your position is within the general plate area. The "Map It" feature simply overlays the plate onto the map.

There are many great features in the software that can be a bit "hidden," which is why we always invite members to tap/click around and ask any questions. We're always trying to balance interface clutter with making as many great features as readily available as possible.

On the stopwatch, once you select the Timer instrument (by selecting it in the "Select Instrument" list), you can tap anywhere else on the screen to hide the popup menu. However, I assume you're referring to keeping it open to have access to the "Start/Stop" and "Reset" buttons in the popup menu. Is that correct?

As another option, you can put the Map view into split view mode using the "View Settings" menu available from the third icon in from the top right of the Map view. Once you open that menu, select "Documents" for the Bottom View or Right View (depending on the current portrait/landscape orientation of your iPad) to create the split screen. From there, the floating timer will be available in the Documents view.

Let us know if that workaround is an option or if simply putting the floating timer that is available in the Documents view into the Map view would be the best!

Thanks John. Was not aware you could change the function. However as a stopwatch it is not usable as the large dialog box covers part of the approach plate. Would love to have the same functionality as the one on the Airports tab. Having it movable is really helpful.

Hi Dave,

Each of the instruments can be changed to an instrument of your choice. Simply tap on any of the boxes and a menu will come up with all the available instruments. Tap on a different instrument to change. Your new selections will be saved in your profile!

Sorry Andy, was away for a few days. I do not see the stopwatch in the instrument list on the map (Flights tab) page. I see 4 boxes "Course", "Altitude", "Groundspeed", and"Distance to next",

Hi Dave, yes, you can... Outside of the plate viewer the timer will be found in the list of instruments at the bottom of the Map view within the flights tab. If you don't see the instrument panel, it can be turned on using the Map Layers menu. The timing will match what you started before using the Map It command.

Let us know you found it!

I noticed when I "Map It" for approach procedures for Geo-referenced view the stop watch goes away. Is there a way to have it available after I have put the procedure in Geo-reference mode?

Routing for Approach Procedures, Sids, Stars

Dave,

Auto-routing via SIDs and STARs is available... simply select the "Low Altitude Airway Auto w SID/STAR" from the routing options and you'll see fields appear for the respective procedure for each airport.

You can also search the Recent ATC Routes which usually include any SID/STARs that are being issued for routes between those two airport pairs.

The same functionality for both is available in iFlightPlanner for iPad as well as on www.iFlightPlanner.com.

Anything on the horizon for integrating auto routing by selecting a procedure (IFR)?

Bob,

FAA Form 7233-4 (International Flight Plan) can be downloaded and printed at https://iacra.faa.gov/iacra/faa7233-4.pdf.

It is referenced in the opening paragraph of the PDF that Dave posted, and as he mentioned, we're set to go with ICAO filing! Head to https://www.iFlightPlanner.com/My/Aircraft, click Edit for the aircraft you would like to view, and navigate to the ICAO Flight Plan Filing tab to make any changes.

Try this. Updated 5/2017

https://www.faa.gov/about/office_org/headquarters_offices/ato/service_units/systemops/fs/res_links/media/ICAO_Flight_Plan_Filing.pdf

However IFP has it built into the APP and filing is a breeze.

Does anyone know a site that displays the ICAO IFR Flight Plan format that I can print out?

Yes, the copy I'll send you this afternoon is technically v3.0.010. I think you have v3.0.003 right now. So, both v3.0, but this will include a number of additional updates and fixes!

Hi Dave,

We had a couple reports of this from another member and I'm confident we've fixed the issue. We'll send you an updated copy of the v3.0 beta this afternoon for you to install. Thanks as always for letting us know!

I am having a recurring issue where the saved ICAO IFR flight plan defaults disappear while working on finalizing a flight. I frequently bounce back and forth from IFP.com to iPad for IFP when working on planning an IFR flight. Today I was working on a flight with some practice approaches and just when I went to file my flight plan on IFP for iPad I noticed that all the defaults that were showing up earlier were gone. Like a blank plan. It has happened before on several occasions.

Ideas?

Thanks for your post! These are great suggestions. We've had a couple requests for the auto-switch to the airport diagram, but hadn't considered the ability to map multiple charts at a time. The feature set for the next version has been finalized, but I've put these items in the set of potential additions for the following version.

As always, input from our members and the aviation community help us prioritize our feature development!

I think it would be beneficial to be able to have all your charts mapped so you dont have to continue to load new charts, and also where you can have a pre-determined time an approach chart would change to the airport diagram maybe upon touchdown, or just have an easy way to load the chart, maybe a way to pre-load all the pertinent charts in an easy to utilize quick window, or whatever.
