ForeFlight’s Synthetic Vision feature now provides even more situational awareness with integrated ADS-B traffic depictions and a 360-degree interactive Glance Mode. Synthetic Vision is available with the Pro Plus subscription plan and above, and as an add-on to Business plans.
To use Synthetic Vision, make sure you select and download high-resolution terrain for whichever regions you plan to fly in, using the settings menus at the top of More - Downloads. Synthetic Vision can double as a backup attitude display when you connect to an AHRS capable receiver, but that isn’t required to use Synthetic Vision or either of the new features in this video.
Customizing ForeFlight’s look and feel is easier with the new App Theme selector, and the Auto Day/Night setting helps your eyes adjust to changing light levels.
You can find the new App Theme selector at the top of More - Settings. Use the 3-button selector to switch between the Day theme, the Night theme, and the Auto Day/Night setting, which automatically transitions between the Day and Night themes at sunrise and sunset, based on your device’s local time.
Organized Track depictions in ForeFlight provide a valuable reference for pilots who utilize these track systems. Organized Tracks are available on mobile and the web with ForeFlight’s Performance Plus and Business Performance subscription plans.
ForeFlight displays three different track systems: The North Atlantic Organized Track System, the Pacific Organized Track System, and the Australian Organized Track Structure. Individual tracks are color-coded based on direction: East-bound tracks are purple and West-bound tracks are green. Zoom in to the start of each track to see labels for the track’s name and direction. Each waypoint in the track is also labeled.
Bullseye in ForeFlight Military Flight Bag is a versatile and powerful feature that simplifies mission planning and tactical decision-making. Bullseye is available with all Military Flight Bag subscription plans. Bullseye allows you to define an arbitrary point on the map and measure your own and other’s positions in relation to that point.
