What's new with today's update?

Today's is all about fine-tuning several features to get ready to promote all the enhancements in the latest beta versions to the public release through the app stores. If you find any issues or have a suggestion, please share them in the comments below. ?

NEW - Available fuel per airfield on the moving map

Available fuel is now shown per airfield using symbology on the map.

The shown fuel types depend of your selected aircraft profile

  • If no aircraft profile is selected then all fuel types will be displayed for each airfield.
  • If an aircraft profile is selected where JetA1 is selected as fuel then only JetA1 fuel labels are rendered on the map.
  • If Avgas is selected as fuel type in the aircraft profiles then all 100(LL) labels are rendered. If mogas or "other" is selected as fuel type in the aircraft profile then all except JetA1 is rendered on the map.
Available Fuel on Moving Map   EasyVFR 4

NEW - Always draw runway extension when runway ident is selected

The runway centerline extension feather is now also drawn without necessarily being part of a route when the runway ident in QuickInfo->Airfield info is tapped.

NEW - Bulgaria, Greenland, and Ukrain are added

We continue to add more countries to EasyVFR 4. This time Bulgaria, Greenland, and Ukraine. To download these new regions first download all data at EasyVFR 4 menu -> Downloads menu -> Download All Data. Then go to the country selected to download the new regions.

IMPROVED - Dynon Data exchange

Another round of tweaks is made to make the process simpler and more stable.

Hi Rob,

The shown fuel types depend of your selected aircraft profile

  • If no aircraft profile is selected then all fuel types will be displayed for each airfield.
  • If an aircraft profile is selected where JetA1 is selected as fuel then only JetA1 fuel labels are rendered on the map.
  • If Avgas is selected as fuel type in the aircraft profiles then all 100(LL) labels are rendered. If mogas or "other" is selected as fuel type in the aircraft profile then all except JetA1 is rendered on the map.

I hope this helps ? 

 

Cheers,
Tim
