Online :
PPGpS can display Google or OpenStreetMap maps in connected mode.
Offline :
Download map files in your smartphone in case you don't have an internet connection during the flight.
Use the integrated PPGpS Offline Map Creator to generate offline maps.

PPGpS provides the altitude, vario, bearing, magnetic compass, acceleration and ground speed.
With just one click on instruments you switch easily between different data modes : instantaneous, average and maximum values.
Altimeter can be set to actual altitude or elevation (QHN, QFE) just by longpressing on the altimeter.
If your smartphone has a barometric sensor, it could be used to compute a very accurate altitude.

Create waypoints by tapping on the map or by entering their GPS coordinates.
Select a waypoint with one click on the waypoint instrument (WPT).
Rename or remove a waypoint from the contextual menu of the waypoint list.
Follow the displayed route (bearing, estimated travel time and distance).
Prepare your waypoints from Google Earth and import your KML files (PPGpS folder in the phone).
Waypoints may be automatically loaded at startup and saved at the end of the session.
In case your KML file doesn't import well, please send me the file and I will fix it quickly.

The average ground speeds are graphically displayed for every azimuth.
The wind direction is displayed (red arrow) and may be reset at any time during the flight.

Home direction and Estimated Travel Time to return home is always displayed (shaded red line).
Computations are done according to the wind for accurate results.

Enable the Live Tracking feature to allow your friends and family to see you live on map ! Go to www.ppgps.info for more details.

Launch the Demonstration mode to have a quick tour.

    For settings menu, continuously tap near the top of the screen by the notification bar. Menu should eventually pop down. Try it when the screen is rotated sideways. A little glitchy. Great app, got stuck in 100% ifr conditions, full dense fog in mountain area that I thought I could climb out of, couldn't safely land. Climbed to 2000 and trusted this app to get me back. 15 minutes of complete blind

    Cannot access the settings menu on my new Galaxy s5. Pretty useless if I have to convert everything from metric manually.
