Our September release features support for Profile View on iPhone, a layer selector for the Track Log Review flight metrics, and support for additional aircraft types in Runway Analysis.
Profile View on iPhone
Profile View is now supported on iPhone, giving you a side-on view of your route along with terrain, obstacles, airspace, and forecast weather.
To support narrower iPhone screens, route metrics like Highest Point, Clearance, and First Strike have moved to a new row above Profile View, along with the toggles for Route and Flight mode that appear during a flight.
The Profile settings menu also moved to directly below Profile View, just to the right of the Profile layer selector.
See how Profile View on iPhone compares to the view on iPad below.
Profile View is included in Pro Plus subscription plans and above, while forecast weather in Profile View is included in ForeFlight Performance subscription plans.
Track Log Review Layer Selector
A small update to the Track Log Review interface combines the four flight data buttons (Speed, Altitude, Pitch, and Bank) into a single layer selector in the bottom-left of the Track Log Graph.
You can display Pitch and Bank in Track Log Review for improved maneuver debriefing by flying with an AHRS-capable receiver like Sentry.
New Runway Analysis Aircraft Support
ForeFlight’s Runway Analysis product for jets now supports the following new aircraft models:
- Gulfstream G-IV and G-IV/SP
- Embraer Phenom 100/100E/100EV
GPS Data via Honeywell Apex & Aspen Connected Gateway
Pilatus pilots who fly with a Honeywell Apex FMS and Aspen Connected Gateway can now receive GPS position, ground speed, and track in ForeFlight, building on the support for flight plan transfer from ForeFlight to Honeywell Apex released earlier this year.
The integration with Honeywell’s Apex FMS is available with ForeFlight Performance subscription plans.
