Garmin Pilot Adds Enhancements to iOS and Android

21 January 2014 @ 5:10 PM  / Aviation /


It’s been an exciting year for Garmin Pilot so far and we’re only 21 days into it! We’re thrilled to kick off the 2014 with a new release on both operating platforms. Version 6.0 for iOS and Version 2.8 for Android mobile devices are available for update and offer a number of enhancements and integration among several other Garmin products.

Version 6.0 for iOS 

Backup Attitude Information Garmin Pilot iOS Attiude

The new GDL 39 3D will easily Bluetooth to an iPad or iPhone to display backup attitude information within Garmin Pilot. A backup attitude indicator is displayed in split-screen mode as part of the Garmin panel page. The attitude indicator may be simultaneously displayed alongside flight plan information or the moving map page.

Pre-flight Planning Enhancements

Based on customer feedback, enhancements have been made to the Active FPL and File & Brief functions of Garmin Pilot, which will streamline flight planning even further.

iOS 7 Redesign

We have revamped the look of Garmin Pilot since the introduction of iOS 7 with a new, modern look and implemented many of the design elements from Apple’s new operating system

VIRB Compatibility VIRB

Display video and remotely control VIRB, Garmin’s HD action camera while viewing pertinent flight plan information in Garmin Pilot. Take still photos and start/stop video recording all within Garmin Pilot in case VIRB is mounted in a non-accessible area.

Devices

A new ‘Devices’ page is available via the Home Screen Menu, allowing customers to manage Garmin hardware that integrates with Garmin Pilot. When the hardware is connected, the ‘Devices’ page will display a connected status for any of the following:

  •  GDL 39/ GDL 39 3D
  •  VIRB
  •  D2 Pilot Watch

Traffic Pattern Recommendations

Garmin Pilot conveniently displays right traffic pattern recommendations at specific airports as needed, taking the guess-work out of whether right-hand traffic is suitable for a particular airport. This information can be viewed within the ‘Airports’ page by selecting ‘Runways.’

Airspace Frequencies

Frequencies are now available for many special use airspaces. To view, tap on the airspace to display the radial menu and select the airspace icon. Airspace frequencies are also available in split screen mode by selecting widgets.

Bluetooth-compatible Android mobile devices will display backup attitude information supplied from the GDL 39 3D, as well as ADS-B traffic and weather.
