    Basemap and Terrain Improvements

    The ForeFlight map engine has a significantly upgraded basemap, which now renders more quickly, smoothly, and with sharper depiction of features such as major roads, railways, national parks, and state and national boundaries. There’s also a new “Shaded Terrain” option, which uses grayscale shading to depict terrain, providing the same level of detail as the colored terrain option with less visual distraction.

    In the Map Settings menu, choose from multiple presentations: Colored, Shaded, or None.

    Glide Advisor

    ForeFlight Glide Advisor helps you to quickly assess your landing options in case you ever lose engine power in flight. Using terrain, GPS data, and your aircraft’s best glide speed and ratio, ForeFlight shapes a glide range ring around your ownship icon on the moving map display.

    Profile View
    Profile view takes our Hazard Advisor feature into vertical mode and gives you a side view of terrain and obstacles along your planned route. With dynamic color alerting you will know at a glance whether your selected altitude will keep you clear of terrain and obstacle hazards. In flight, Profile shows your current altitude in relation to obstacles or terrain ahead of your track. Profile is a ForeFlight Pro and iPad only feature, and also requires iOS 7.1 or higher.
