DroidEFB, a GPS navigation app for pilots for Android mobile devices, has released its latest version, which now has the ability to do Points Of Interest (POI) searches from within the Flight Plan Tab.
“Previously, users had to search for Points Of Interest (POI), i.e. business names and addresses, using the search icon at the top of the screen. The new version makes it easier and saves time by allowing the user to search and add POIs directly within the Flight Plan Tab,” said CEO Paul Coleman. “Besides the upgrade to the search capability of POIs, we were able to fix some issues reported by our users to enhance their ADS-B and Android experience.”
The latest version of DroidEFB also:
- Fixes reported crashes with ADS-B devices – as more users begin using ADS-B, DroidEFB’s interface now communicates better with ADS-B receivers to deliver a stable platform for DroidEFB users.
- Fixes issue where pilot info and track logs were not properly saved – after restarting the app, some Android devices would reportedly erase track logs and pilot info from the flight plan briefing form and weight and balance profiles. The new version retains all this information when the app is stopped and then restarted.
- Fixes issue experienced by users using outdated charts and airport data.
- Update: ADS-B and GPS status are shown via the Sensors Tab when data is being received.
- Update: View and share flights on social media, including Facebook, Twitter, Gmail, SMS.
