Please ignore all the "does not work reviews." The problem was with the installation of new android version from version 6(marshmallow) . The issue has been fixed and the App now prompts the App user to provide Location and Storage Permissions.
For less than US$6.00 VFR contains stand alone location, radio, and runway information on every airport in the WORLD. No downloads and No subscriptions.
Version 2.1 has many improvements and more are coming.
This fully self contained tool will guide you to any airport, Vor, or Street Address in the world without a download. No subscriptions, no ads, updates are free.
The Map Screen requires a temporary data connection for automatic downloading and caches maps viewed automatically.
This GPS based system is a quick and extremely simple full Guidance and Navigation tool for pilots to enjoy the view from the sky without wasting precious flying time with complicated navigation instruments. Searches and easily provides guidance to any airport, Radio VOR, or Point of Interest(any LAT/LON combination) in the world.
The Navigation screen works well on either a smartphone or tablet computers. If you fly multiple planes, you will have one portable familiar navigation tool that you can rely upon.
It only takes 5 to 10 minutes to learn how to get to any airport, anywhere in the world. Search airport descriptions, identifiers, or nearest lists. Pick a spot on the map and with a single press insert it into your flight plan and immediately see the bearing, bearing line, and distance to that location from your current GPS location.
Search for Airports, VOR's, and NDB's. Search for "nearest airports to any airport in your flight plan" capability from the flight plan screen.
You can export, import and edit your flight plan on your device or save and edit multiple versions on any computer. This is easily done to any cloud service, such as Google Drive.
EASY TO USE:
Press NEAREST for the nearest 50-100 runways, press (select) the airport you want, and follow the bearing or track on the map, verbally if you wish. This App shows a single prompt (R)ight or (L)eft and the number of degrees, Eg. "L005" for turn left 5 degrees. Easy. It also shows Ground Track, Bearing, Ground Speed, Altitude, Distance to Airport and Estimated Time of Arrival at current speed.
Press MAP and you have a moving map with "Press and Go." With the map visible, press any place on the map and the Lat/Lon from that location will be stored in the destination list.
Choose to immediately navigate to that location. In this case the navigation bearing line will be redrawn. Edit the name of the location in the Flight Plan screen at any time
If you check the MAP screenshot on this page, you can see that to navigate to your destination, just turn to the plane until the track (black with pointer) line is coincident with the RED Bearing line.. The bearing line can be re draw to start from your current location anytime.
Any airport in our world database can be found by ICAO or a word or phrase from the Description. For example, "paris" would return 25 runways to select from.
