Synthetic Vision on iPhone
ForeFlight’s advanced hazard awareness capability and backup attitude indicator is now available on the iPhone, and it looks fantastic! See detailed 3D terrain, obstacles, and runways in full screen Portrait or Landscape mode, and pair with an AHRS-capable ADS-B receiver like Sentry or compatible Garmin equipment for dynamic backup attitude and traffic display. The iPhone also supports Glance Mode, allowing you to swipe within Synthetic Vision to view terrain and traffic in any direction.
Synthetic Vision is included in Pro Plus subscriptions and above.
Terrain Avoidance in ForeFlight (EAA AirVenture Oshkosh 2022)
Flights in mountainous terrain pose unique challenges to pilots trying to enjoy the beauty of their surroundings without compromising safety. Customer Success Coordinator Rachel Scarbrough sits down with Chris Palmer, creator of Angle of Attack, who flies among the glaciers and valleys of Alaska. They discuss how ForeFlight can help you maximize your terrain awareness to make mountain flying safer and more enjoyable.
Traffic & Glance Mode in Synthetic Vision
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.
