Mid flight Direct w/o a flight plan Messages in this topic - RSS

I was out VFR flying around north Georgia this morning with no flight plan as I was going nowhere other than to view the colors of the trees. I though I would pop into a small airport for some refreshment. I tapped on the airport then the Direct key hoping IFP would draw a direct line to the airport from my location similar to the Garmin 430. What I got was a popup advising me I needed a date and From/To info. It would be great if the iPad app would allow a Direct immediately without the need for a date and From/To.

Thanks for your post! We've had a number of requests for some modifications to the "Direct To" feature in iFlightPlanner for iPad to help it work more intuitively, including auto-filling the from/to fields in the scenario you described above. Those modifications will be included in the next version of the app. In addition, we'll be relaxing the requirements on Departure Date so that you're not getting stopped by that warning unless you are actually filing. As always, your feedback as a member is tremendously helpful!
