Would be nice to see navaids on the basic map, especially when planning a route around weather or airspace and need a point for the flight plan (and to give to ATC).

Hi Seevee,

Thanks for your feature request! We're always interested in hearing from our members about how we can improve your flight planning experience.

I have noted your interest in seeing nearby navaids on the basic map and our team will review potential implementation in upcoming development meetings. In the meantime, here are two features that may help:

1) Route Rubberbanding: Insert a new waypoint by holding down on a route line or click and hold an existing waypoint, then drag the waypoint to anywhere on the map. When you let go of the waypoint, select "Snap To Nearby Airport/Navaid" from the menu.

2) Click anywhere on the map at any time and select "View Nearby Airports/Navaids".

Both options will show you a list of nearby airports/navaids, ordered by distance away from the map location. You may then snap to a nearby location or insert a nearby location into the selected location in your route.
Please let us know if we can help further!
