Chart annotations

Thinking on how I annotate paper charts three colors would probably work. Would need an eraser feature as part of the capability. I would suggest you need to have the annotated items remain on the chart until you entered an "erase all" on each chart or when the next cycle is downloaded which ever is first. This would be for both approach and taxiway charts

Here is a link to the article I was referencing on capabilities of three flight planners.

Attached is an example of how the annotation is used.

Hi Dave,

We’ve had a few requests for this feature at different times. It’s not definitively in our roadmap, but as always, the more requests we receive for a feature, the quicker it moves up our priority list.

Do you have any specific thoughts on exactly how the feature would work? For example, how many different colors would you like? Should notes be permanently saved with a plate or only displayed while the plate is still open?

Thanks!

Been reading some of the other apps are offering the ability to make annotations on charts using a pencil and highlighter function. Any plans to offer similar capabilities on IFP for iPad?

I have noticed on flights that when I use the function "Plan reverse flight" the aircraft equipment section 10a and all below info for the ICAO IFR flight plan is not populated from my previous flight or the aircraft profile info. Do I have a setting I missed.

Also I have the box checked to text me when ATC changes my requested flight plan. So far I have not received any texts from CSC DUATS on changes, only the confirmation of receipt.

Dave,

The latest version of iFlightPlanner for iPad (v3.2) is now available in the App Store. This version resolves the issues with traffic display from the 170D. Please let us know if everything looks good on your end!

Dave,

Good timing! We received the 170D test device from Dual and had noticed that some of the 1090 traffic is showing up as "on ground" orange boxes even though they're actually in flight. I expect we'll have a resolution on this in the coming week and will post an updated version to the App Store!

John, my new 170D partially works with IFP iPad. Some traffic appears correctly like with the older 170 but now I see a lot of square orange boxes that normally meant on the ground but they are moving way too fast and not in areas of an airport. I am guessing they may be from the higher frequency (1090) and not processing the data correctly.

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?

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?
