Some notes on today's update

Android 11 performance issues fixed!
Most importantly with this beta version, the Android 11 issues are solved with this new beta version. EasyVFR 4.0.870 now even runs faster on Android 11 than on previous Android versions. Older Android version also could notice a slight performance increase. Opening PDF's with Android 11 is yet, work in progress.

If you have a device that runs Android 11 or older, please let us know below in the comments if you notice the improvement.

PDF viewer within EasyVFR 4 (iOS and Windows only)
Viewing airport plates and documents as PDF and sharing them is now possible within EasyVFR 4 for Windows and iOS. This results in much better readability and usability. Android and macOS are using your external PDF reader. This is the first test of s build-in PDf reader within EasyVFR 4. So more iterations are expected. If you find any issues or have a suggestion, feel free to write them in the comments below.

Open PDF from the Airfield summery bar. Select Plate -> Tap PDF.

Release notes

  • NEW: When a georeferenced approach plate is selected then when the summary window is activated a [PDF] button is available to quickly open the corresponding PDF
  • NEW: On iOS and windows, when activating a PDF from the AirfieldInfo window (accessible for example through the QuickWheel or Presets A/B when a route is loaded) the PDF will be shown within EasyVFR4 instead of asking the user to select which PDF app he/she wishes to use.
  • IMPROVED: Performance on all Android's has slightly improved.
  • FIXED: Slow performance on devices upgraded to Android 11 has been solved. Android 11 is now even faster than the previous versions.
  • FIXED: Sometimes during very specific conditions while route planning the AirspaceHide filter minimum altitude was set to zero (0) causing all airspaces to disappear from the map.
  • FIXED: EasyVFR 4 menu->my Userwaypoints did not scroll enough to make it possible to edit the last items on the list
  • FIXED: Removed Billing permission from android manifest
  • FIXED: Memory leak on windows, Android and MacOS
