    How can I purchase Synthetic Vision?

    Synthetic Vision is available on the iPad and is included with the Pro Plus subscription plan for individuals, available for $199.99, or as an add-on to other subscriptions for $25.

    For existing customers: As an existing customer, upgrading to a Synthetic Vision plan will extend your expiration date to a year from when you upgrade. When you upgrade on our website, you'll receive a prorated credit for the unused time on your existing subscription which then applies to the upgrade purchase price. Upgrading in the app will not apply this credit to the purchase, but will instead apply the credit to your subscription length, extending it by a prorated amount.

    To change plans, head to our Purchasing page and use the email address associated with your account.

    For new customers: As a new customer, you can purchase a Pro Plus plan via the in-app Subscription view or via our website. iTunes credits and gift cards may be used towards the purchase via the in-app buy button.


    How do I start using Synthetic Vision on my iPad?

    First, if you haven’t updated your app to at least ForeFlight Mobile version 6.6, please do so by opening this link on your iPad: www.foreflight.com/itunes/ffm.

    Beginning with ForeFlight Mobile 7.7, the data for Synthetic Vision is included in the High Resolution Terrain download. To download and install it to your device, follow these steps:

    1) Open ForeFlight Mobile, tap More > Downloads > United States, and turn the High Resolution Terrain switch ON. If you plan to fly in the Caribbean, Mexico or Central America, go to More > Downloads > Caribbean, Mexico, Central America and turn the switch ON.

    If you have a Canadian subscription go to More > Downloads > Canada and turn the High Resolution Terrain switch ON.

    2) Tap the black 'Downloads' button at the top of the page to go back, then tap the green “Download” button to download the high resolution terrain data, along with the Synthetic Vision data.

    3) Go to the Maps view and tap the Attitude Indicator (AI) button to display the Synthetic Vision view.

    NOTE: If you’re using a GPS (built-in or external) but are not using a Stratus 2 or Stratus 2S ADS-B + AHRS receiver, or other ForeFlight Connect device that provides AHRS (such as Dynon Skyview, Garmin Flight Stream 210, or Garmin GTX-345; see http://foreflight.com/connect/) you will see the Terrain and Obstacles but no attitude (pitch/roll) information.
