123west Software has released version 3.0 of its aviation app, Naviator, for Android devices. Naviator 3.0 introduces two major features: 3D synthetic vision and obstacle/tower alerts.
The 3D synthetic vision feature builds on Naviator’s existing 2D terrain warnings to present a 3D HUD-like view of the surrounding terrain and obstacles. Terrain above the aircraft is shaded red to warn pilots of potential danger and obstacles (antennas, buildings, etc.) are displayed using their real-world elevations, enabling enhanced situational awareness, according to company officials.
