Garmin reports that electronic logbook capabilities are now built in to the Garmin Pilot application for iPad/iPhone and integration with flyGarmin.
While flying with Garmin Pilot, the logbook feature provides automatic record keeping of commonly recorded data pertaining to each flight. Information such as date, total duration of each flight, number of takeoffs and landings, route and more are sorted and saved for reference across Garmin Pilot devices and within flyGarmin.
Built-in redundancy also allows pilots to make manual logbook entries via the flyGarmin website or Garmin Pilot app, where both entries are automatically synced and stored to display the same information.
Additional capabilities include the ability to record endorsements, track flight currency, generate historical flight reports and more.
In addition to electronic logbook documentation, Garmin Pilot now incorporates Nearest navigation functionality so pilots can see at-a-glance the nearest airport, navigational aid, airspace or facility, relative to their location.
In addition to these new capabilities, Garmin Pilot calculates and displays density altitude information on the weather tab within the airport page. This calculation is automatically displayed within Garmin Pilot so pilots can view density altitude data. An enhanced distance-measuring tool has also been modified to allow for easier use and functionality within the moving map page.
For new customers, Garmin Pilot is available in the Apple App Store as a free download for the first 30 days. After the 30-day trial period, customers can purchase an annual subscription of Garmin Pilot starting at $74.99.
