These two recent updates introduce new features like cockpit sharing and links to Flight Aware's live flight tracking service, as well as a few general refinements and fixes.
Cockpit sharing is available with ForeFlight Mobile 5.4.2 for Standard and Pro subscribers. This feature allows for easy route sharing between crew members via WiFi. Stay in sync by connecting devices to the same WiFi network and use the route builder 'send to' button to share the route with your crew or your backup device. Cockpit sharing works great with the Stratus 2 for connecting multiple devices on a WiFi network. Here are some screen shots of cockpit sharing in action:
In addition to cockpit sharing, we released a number of refinements and features that enhance decision making and improve the overall user experience. Highlights include links to Flight Aware's live flight tracking service, a redesigned route edit bubble action menu, and the recently updated FAA aircraft equipment codes for flight plan filing. Here are some screen shots of several new features:
In the Airports page, a new Flight Tracking option in the 'more' tab links to Flight Aware's live flight tracking service. WiFi internet or cellular connection is required for this feature.
Also in the route editor, the route element bubble popover has been redesigned for easier navigation.
These updates are currently available in the App Store and are free to download for ForeFlight Mobile subscribers.
