iOS Universel / Navigation
In flight, Xavion constantly imagines engine-failed glides to every runway in gliding range, and then shows you the safest-possible route as a Highway-In-The-Sky to take to an airport in the event of engine failure. This, finally, gives you guidance after an engine failure that is based on energy-management all the way down, where the computer does the glide-planning for you… you just fly through the hoops to the runway. Xavion also has instrument approaches in 3-D for the United States, so you can simply select any approach and then fly through the hoops to fly it!
As well, Xavion tracks other airplanes via ADS-B, and memorizes their location to track their WAKE TURBULENCE, moving the wake turbulence down and with the wind over time, showing the wake turbulence as little spiraling tornados. Finally, an App that tracks and shows you the wake turbulence of other airplanes.
As well, Xavion gets ADS-B weather if you have a portable receiver, and displays it, including the new icing, turbulence, and lightning products. Xavion also gets METARS and winds aloft from the internet if you have a WIFI or cell signal to help you plan before a flight!
Also, Xavion checks your weight and balance, and even estimates your takeoff distance and compares that to the length of the runway that you are about to take off on to warn you if the available runway length from your current location is marginal for a safe take-off.
Also, Xavion estimates time and fuel burn at all different altitudes to any destination, showing you the time and fuel burn required for each altitude enroute, so you can pick the best altitude.
Xavion, and Xavion alone in the sky, gives engine-failure guidance and wake-turbulence avoidance.
Xavion is free to download, and requires In-App purchase of current airport data ($9.99/month, or $99.00/year). As well, you may OPTIONALLY buy USA Sectional Charts, Low and High Enroute Charts, and Approach Plates for $149.00/year.
Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life.
Quoi de neuf dans la dernière version ?
Now with historical animated hi-res weather radar and winds aloft!
Also RAM-use reduction and UI tuning.
Other new stuff:
Starting now, your Xavion subscription INCLUDES all USA charts and plates!
As well, this build offers free data until July 15, even if you have NO subscription!
We now have National NEXRAD for the USA via WIFI or CELL, so you can get a look at the NEXRAD weather radar on the ground before you get going... even if you don't have an ADSb receiver!
New Map and PFD imagery, tracking real-world terrain coloring.
New user interface, which contains help-tips throughout the App, and auto dark-mode for instrument approach plates if you set your brightness below 50%.
Faster approach plate downloads... we only download ones that have actually CHANGED... not just every plate in the new expiration group! This speeds up plate downloads a lot.
We now allow tenth-of-an-inch weight and balance entry, just to hold right to the book if desired.
Battery-usage reduction, which is nice for the longer flights.
Procedure turn was in the wrong direction at KCXO… now fixed!
