Hi Dave,

Thanks for letting us know! We will attempt to reproduce and identify the issue. As soon as we have it figured out, we'll provide an update here!

I am having a recurring issue with IFP.com on the planned altitude box. I plan a flight and change my desired altitude (say 9000) from the preferred altitude (4500) that is stored in preferences for a particular flight. I finish the planning and save all sections to the end. I check the sync to my iPad and all is good. If I go back into IFP.com later to review I notice the planned altitude has reverted back to my preferences altitude.

Thoughts?

BTW, I like the update you released to use the ctl key with the scroll on the mouse to zoom.

Hi Dave,

Yes, the same login credentials you maintain for your personal account will work on a backup iPad. Simply login to iFlightPlanner on the backup iPad and sync before you depart. Should your primary iPad fail, you'll be able to use the backup with all the same flight information.

Also, iFlightPlanner for iPhone is currently in development and will have all the digital charting and GPS location capabilities as our iPad app. Stay tuned!

Thanks for your continued support!

Was having a discussion with a CFI and he mentioned he carried a second iPad mini as a back up (uses another EFB product) instead of all the paper needed for secondary backup. I believe IFP is iPad specific so not sure how that would work. Do you have a process for allowing me to have two iPads running IFP so I could switch in mid-flight in case my primary went down?

ADS/B?

Thanks for your post and the kind words about iFlightPlanner!

Although Scout is very new, we have already inquired with uAvionix about integrating it into iFlightPlanner, as we had already added some of their other devices. Unfortunately, Scout is locked into an exclusive agreement with a competitor of ours and we won't be provided the necessary information to enable iFlightPlanner to receive and process it's data.

Our goal is to integrate with as many ADS-B devices as possible so that our members may choose the device that works best for them. In iFlightPlanner for iPad v3.0, we introduced support for eight manufacturers and 12+ devices. We're happy to answer any questions to help you make the best choice for your aircraft!

I know this is a really new ADS-B device but is there a plan to get the Scout added? https://flywithscout.com/. Thanks, and iFlightPlanner is a GREAT product BTW.

John, assume IFP already supports DUAL XGPS-190?

Hi Dave,

We have a demo 170D coming from Dual, but we have no reason to believe it won't be 100% compatible with iFlightPlanner.

We'll follow up here and confirm as soon as we receive the device and run it through our tests!

Does IFP support the new Dual XGPS170D for both frequencies (978 MHz and 1090 MHz) concurrently?

Thanks for your post! We don't currently offer this functionality, but are always interested in feature requests from our members and the aviation community. Can you provide any further insight on how you would like to see the functionality work? Is it a feature you would use regularly?

Also, do you primarily use iFlightPlanner.com or iFlightPlanner for iPad for your planning?

Is there any way to plot a course from a waypoint along a heading for a particular distance? Any way to do it from your current position?

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",
