Starting today, ForeFlighters have access to more detailed – and more beautiful – street maps in ForeFlight Mobile. In addition to providing more street coverage and a more eye catching style, hill-shaded terrain data is also added. The hill shaded terrain helps improve pre-flight planning and situational awareness. Improved airport maps and runway details are also a help. A set of screenshots of the new street maps is available below.
If you are heading to AirVenture, stop by and visit with us in the ForeFlight Booth. We will be demoing this and other new features, including Stratus – the portable ADS-B receiver built in partnership with Appareo and Sporty’s. We are affectionately calling the booth the “double-wide” – a double sized booth in Hangar A, 1147-1148. Last year the booth got a bit crowded, so we expanded. So, swing on by the double-wide to see the latest and get answers to questions you have.
