What's new with today's update?

With the last update, we said that it would be the last one before promote all the enhancements in the latest beta versions to the public release through the app stores. But we did found a new important bug that needed to be fixed and took the changes to add one more new feature. Upcoming leg change notification. Both visual as spoken, EasyVFR 4 will now inform you 30 seconds before the next planned waypoint or time-check.

If you find any issues or have a suggestion, please share them in the comments below. 😎

We wish you all a pleasant Eastern!

Cheers,
Team EasyVFR 4

 

NEW - Upcoming leg change notification

If you are looking outside the cockpit, watching out for other aircraft, and enjoying the view, you can easily forget about time and miss a planned turn. This is where a friendly voice notification that advises you to turn, climb or descend can come in handy. The new notification is enabled by default and can be adjusted via EasyVFR 4 menu -> Alarms and Warnings -> Voice.

Release notes

  • NEW: Voice guidance for upcoming leg change.
  • FIXED: Dragging route waypoint was broken since version 4.0.893.

All previous release notes are listed here.
