What's new with today's update?

Today's is all about fine-tuning several features by introducing new functionalities, improvements, and some changes. 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 - Runway extension

Map Layers -> AeroData now has a toggle to turn off/on runway extension line feathers for airfields in your route. Regardless of this setting, when marking a runway in QuickInfo->Airport by tapping on its ident then EasyVFR 4 will render a runway centerline extension for that specific runway.

NEW - Actual flight time and distance flown

Route totals in the routewindow now keep track of actual flight time and ground distance flown.

To also benefit from this feature when you have no route planned, then EasyVFR 4 will automatically create a localflight route based on backtracking today's breadcrumb to determine the actual takeoff position and time.

NEW - Auto logbook

Logbook entries are now automatically created without the need for manual activation to extract them from daily breadcrumbs

IMPROVED - Dynon Data exchange

Approach Plates now get downloaded from the Dynon Data Exchange window because nobody understood only the plates that were already downloaded are actually copied. This has now become an "all or nothing" operation: when the Dynon Sync is done, EasyVFR will make sure all approach plates for all selected countries are downloaded, regardless of how long it takes. The user has no influence on this anymore.

In the below screenshot 7 countries were enabled. Resulting in a necessary download of 2002 approach plates. This took just over an hour. Updating the data, however, took just a few minutes since only expired plates are replaced.

Release notes

  • NEW: Runway extension. Map Layers -> AeroData now has a toggle to turn off/on runway extension line feathers for airfields in your route. Regardless of this setting, when marking a runway in QuickInfo->Airport by tapping on its ident then EV4 will render a runway centerline extension for that specific runway.
  • NEW: Actual flight time and distance flown. Route totals in the routewindow now keep track of actual flight time and ground distance flown.
  • NEW: Auto local flight. When flightmode gets enabled (either manually or automatically) and no route is loaded yet on the routewindow then EasyVFR 4 will automatically create a local flight route based on backtracking today's breadcrumb to determine the actual takeoff position and time.
  • NEW: Logbook entries are now automatically created without the need for manual activation to extract them from daily breadcrumbs.
  • NEW: When single-tapping anywhere in the VPV, the moving map will pan to that tapped location and show either detailed airfield info or detailed airspace info depending on if the tap was at the bottom scale of the VPV or in the airspace area.
  • IMPROVED: Minor improvements to descend to destination profiling in the VPV to eliminate some of the "weird vertical profiles" in the VPV.
  • IMPROVED: Dynon Data exchange. Approach Plates now get downloaded from the Dynon Data Exchange window because nobody understood only the plates that were already downloaded are actually copied. This has now become an "all or nothing" operation: when the Dynon Sync is done, EasyVFR will make sure all approach plates for all selected countries are downloaded, regardless of how long it takes. The user has no influence on this anymore.
  • IMPROVED: When inserting a route point into a leg then EasyVFR will no longer increase planned altitude for the newly created leg if terrain for the newly created leg is higher than for the existing leg. When a point is added to the route then this auto-adjusting to the highest terrain still takes place.
  • IMPROVED: When tapping a NOTAM on the routewindow to highlight it on the map, then the on map NOTAM text won't get shown anymore if the routewindow is still open (because the NOTAM text can still be read on that routewindow then).
  • CHANGED: On Windows when opening a PDF, EasyVFR 4 will always launch an external viewer instead of creating an in-app viewer. This is done because some in-app viewers cause EV4 to freeze when the users want to print the PDF for example.
  • CHANGED: Infofields for legs at the routewindow for both planning and flightmode.
  • CHANGED: Daily Breadcrumb maintenance is now moved to EasyVFR 4 menu- > System. They are currently stored indefinitely, but upcoming versions will restrict this to a specific date frame as soon as the automatic logbook creation turns out to be working ok (breadcrumbs are copied to the logbook for the specific flight duration so the original daily breadcrumb can safely be deleted). Breadcrumbs are just kept for debugging purposes still.
  • FIXED: When exporting a route with a space in the filename EV4 would crash if exported on an iOS device
  • FIXED: EV4 could crash in some circumstances when opening the AirspaceCrossed tab.
  • FIXED: When using an iPhone with a notch in landscape mode ev4 would keep a top part of the screen unused.
  • FIXED: EV4 would crash when dragging the destination of a route on the map
  • FIXED: EV4 would freeze when on startup, flightmode was enabled and AeroData needed to get updated due to the start of a new Airac cycle
  • FIXED: When a local flight was active and EV4 showed WX for the upcoming ours in the VP then when rotating the screen the VPV would jump to the farthest time point to the right.
  • FIXED: When a country was added and then Dynon SkyView Data Exchange was chosen before the EFB catalog was updated in the background then EV4 would not copy the plates for the newly added country to the Dynon memory stick.
  • FIXED: Flightplan filing new firewall conditions setup by RocketRoute broke Flightplan filing.
  • FIXED: When using landscape screen orientation the infofields could become extremely small.
