Using Lat/Long way points

Hi Frank,

We have investigated and haven't been able to reproduce this issue. Would you be able to send us a screenshot of the map being displayed incorrectly?

Also, web browsers sometimes cache "behind the scenes" files that contain programming code for functionality. There is small possibility your web browser still has an old version of these files that provide the map interactivity. With the map page open, please hold down shift, then click the Refresh button your web browser. This will force the browser to update all of these "behind the scenes" files.

As always, we'll do whatever it takes to get to the bottom of any technical issues.

Hi Frank,

We will investigate right away as this is not the expected behoavior. On Wednesday, we switched from DUATS to Leidos for nav logs, weather briefs, and filing due to the FAA discontinuing the DUATS program and there may still be a bug we didn’t identify during testing. Thanks for the heads up and we’ll follow up as soon as we have it fixed.

Why, when using Lat/Lon waypoints like "HYGEN RODDY 382106N/1054824W 381637N/1055258W PEDRA KDRO" do they show up correctly in the nav log but will not show the route on the map?

Adding drone notams to the map would be a big help.

Yeah, I am convinced that iFlightPlanner is compatible with all iPad models. That's really great because I don't need to worry that my iPad is rejected.

Problem with time zone

Hi Kevin,

We don’t currently provide the ability when entering your flight date to have it automatically determine the local time zone at that airport. You can select the time zone for that airport when entering the date although I can envision times when you wouldn’t know an airport’s time zone off the top of your head.

However, that is a good suggestion and we’ve made a note to look into how best to implement it.

We do automatically convert the flight date entered from the selected time zone to UTC when filing your flight plans.

Hi John, I've tried to find a place on the website and the iPad to set the time I use for a flight as "Local Time" but can't find it. Is there a way to do this now? And if filing will the software automatically set the departure time to Zulu time?

Thanks!

Hi Dave,

It looks like when the Cyber Monday membership special was applied to your account, it was switched to iFlightPlanner Premium rather than Premium Plus. Georeferenced airport diagrams and approach plates, including the "Map It" feature, are part of Premium Plus, which is why you weren't seeing the "Map It" button in the app.

We've updated your account to iFlightPlanner Premium Plus. Simply tap "Sync" at the top of the Home view in the app and you'll be all set.

I was out flying some practice approaches yesterday and I noticed the "Map It" feature to overlay the plate on the map was missing. Is this a user error. I have been known to do that. smile See attached screen shot.

Yes, we've been keeping an eye on what Mitre is doing, and have actually spec'd our own functionality given some other user requests this past spring... I don't have a timeline, but as you know, all new features are prioritized by the amount of support they're receiving and this one has to potential to be moved up.

Been reading about an app in development from Mitre corp that can be used to receive clearances and provide release info direct via ATC. Seems like it is gaining a lot of traction. Would be great if it could somehow be incorporated into IFP for iPad instead of using a phone.

Here is a link to the new app in case you have not seen it.

Yessir! An iPhone version of iFlightPlanner is in the works... I don't have a timeline for you, but you can be sure we'll let everyone know when it's available in the App Store.

In the meantime, open www.iFlightPlanner.com.com from within Safari on the iPhone. The website is fully responsive to any size web browser. It will obviously lack the GPS moving map capabilities of a native app, but still allow you to take iFlightPlanner with you on the go!

I'm sure you guys have had this request already but do you know when the iPhone app will come out. Or an estimated time. Love the app but would really like something on the iPhone. Would make life a lot easier. Thanks.

Andy,

No. I just started using the program recently and have not entered any backlogged flights.

So if I understand correctly, if I did NOT back-fill my flights it should show green once I have flown an INST approach for 6 consecutive months?

The EAA's IMC Club's definition of "proficiency" is one instrument approach flown every month for 6 consecutive months... while the FAA recognizes currency as 6 approaches flown in the last 6 months, regardless of when they happen.

Have you entered one approach for each of the last 6 months?

Hey Andy,

I still don't understand. I've added multiple IFR approaches but it's still only showing a single entry. My IFR Approaches is showing as (Current) is there other data here it is looking for?

Thank you so much for aware us about this issue which will temporarily cache "behind-the-scenes" files, such as the one that does the calculations for the nav log.
