This version focuses mostly on improving the logbook functionality. Logbook entries are now automatically created when EasyVFR4 detects the flight is completed, and will show a flight summary during taxiing or when parked. This flight summary can be closed manually, but it will also close automatically when shown for more then 5 minutes.

Until now the logbook system was a simple file-based system that didn’t allow for merging of entries from multiple devices and was  vulnerable to corruption and accidental deletion. With this new version we introduce a server-based system that eliminates these drawbacks.

Because logbook entries also contain breadcrumb data and are privacy related, we designed the system so that the user has to opt-in first to use this new logbook system.


At the initial opt-in any existing logbook entries on the device shall be uploaded to the new server system.


All other devices using the same account then automatically merge with the server entries as soon as option [Store on EasyVFR Cloud] is turned on for these devices also.


From then on any change made on any of the devices will automatically replicate to the other devices.


Other enhancements in this beta update

In the below release notes you can find the other new tools and improved features. All on popular request by the community. Thank you all for your suggestions and feedback. Your input really helps us to prioritize development and to make EasyVFR 4 better every day.

Release notes

  • NEW: When using a traffic device like PAW, SkyEcho, Flarm etc THEN regardless if the traffic and own ship are on collision course , the target will be be depicted using the amber colour instead of the default grey to stand out more if lateral distance to target divided by combined speed is less then 120 seconds
  • NEW: When in flight mode the track line will now show a 10NM distance marker.
  • NEW: Logbook can now be automatically synchronised between devices via EasyVFR cloud if the option "Store on EasyVFR cloud"  in menu->Flightlog maintenance is enabled.
  • IMPROVED: Dynon Data Exchange now warns a user on iOS and Android this feature is only available for owners of an AvionicsData Wireless USB stick.
  • IMPROVED: When in flight mode EV4 will now render breadcrumbs for the last hour only to avoid clutter. When not in flight mode then all known breadcrumbs are still rendered.
  • IMPROVED: Background location data updates now collect using a higher frequency
  • IMPROVED: Logbook creating now analyses for touch & goes also.
  • IMPROVED: Runway centreline extension feathers are now rendered at higher camera altitudes then previously
  • IMPROVED: When selecting a runway via QuickInfo->Airfield Info to limit the number of drawn runway extension centrelines to exactly one now allows to "unselect" the selected runway so all runway centrelines extension feathers are drawn again.
  • IMPROVED: Google Map tiles overlay toggling on/off has been moved from myEasyVFR to mapLayer->AeroData
  • IMPROVED: When background location updates are enabled by the user but associated rights are not set for the operating system then EV4 will give a warning.
  • IMPROVED: When multiple GPS Sources (for example SkyEcho2 is used with a tablet that has intern GPS also) then the breadcrumbs rendered on the map will be drawn using the data from the external unit only and will complement missing data from the internal GPS only when needed. This avoids the drawing of those funny "double track breadcrumbs".
  • IMPROVED: Dynon SkyView flight plan transferring only was possible when the SkyView reported a valid GPS fix. This check is now removed.
  • IMPROVED: When doing a pinch-zoom, panning is no longer disabled.
  • FIXED: A memory leak causing EV4 to crash after a few hours in flight mode.
  • FIXED: Routes stored in iOS iCloud via the Files app can now be loaded into EasyVFR4
  • FIXED: When EasyVFR4 is still running at the switch of an AIRAC cycle then the "AeroData is out of date" warning will now be shown.
  • FIXED: Various automatic routing issues.
  • FIXED: When selecting countries Large population areas are no longer obscuring the map
  • FIXED: When selecting countries Airport Features like VFR routes are no longer obscuring the map
  • FIXED: Collapsing NOTAMS to one single line in the RouteWindow-NOTAMS tab.
  • FIXED: Adding the departure airfield also as destination via QuickInfo->Airfield info is now also possible.
  • FIXED: Sometimes when filing a flight plan the PIC Name was not transferred to the ATC unit.
  • FIXED: Dynon DataExchange did sometimes not update all required files, causing the Dynon SkyView units complaining about databases being out of date (the Approach Plates in this case).
  • FIXED: MacOS Big Sur M1 showed only a white screen since latest Big Sur M1 update when running the iOS version
