Anywhere Map Now an APP

I have been waiting for this one! I have been watching the Anywhere Map web site for a long time and was impressed with the software part of their tools but didn’t like the idea of buying yet another piece of hardware. When the iPad came out I expected Anywhere Map to be an early […]

Sporty’s, Foreflight and Appareo have collaborated to bring portable ADS-B weather to the cockpit. The Stratus ADS-B reciever and wi-fi hotspot will display NEXRAD radar, text weather, TFRs and GPS position and more (but no traffic since this is ADS-B in only) on multiple iPads running Foreflight.

Foreflight has issued some cautions (http://blog.foreflight.com/2011/10/14/flying-with-foreflight-and-ios-5/) about using the new IOS5 on your iPad or iPhone.

MyClip Arrived

My Tiet MyClip Thigh kneeboard arrived on Saturday and I am an instant fan. The compact MyClip takes up very little space in my flight bag. The molded clips are large enough to hold the iPad snugly  but don’t obscure the screen in the least. The whole device strikes me as well made and is […]
