    Congratulations on having SafeSky in EasyVFR and with a little luck we also will beable to add ADB-L into all EFB applications!

    I just downloaded EasyFVR again and I think the map looks gorgeous, whoever decided on the colors and general look of it deserves a raise.

    However, I cannot get used to the menu’s, buttons and what not…

    I have seen buttons where the last two letters are broken totally incorrect, mixed languages on questions like : Are you sure? [Ja] [No], Text sizes are different in a menu for no apparent reason. Mixed languages for text (Something with Timespan voor NOTAMs….) while the header clearly says ‘Tijdframe’
    Other text like ‘Weet je het zeker dat je wilzet het aan?’ (no kidding…) I know you guys are from Holland!
    Scrolling, selecting in large menu’s. Text’s are cursive for no apparent reason. Sometimes the whole UI changes background color from white to gray and I have zero idea why..
    Some text is so small, I cannot read it..

    EasyVFR is a great tool, please fix the menu’s, texts and work on the speediness of the UI, updates on the screen are still slow compared to other mapping and EFB applications.

      Hi there,

      Thank you so much for your enthusiasm and kind words about our SafeSky integration in EasyVFR and the aesthetics of our maps! We’re thrilled to hear that you find the map design appealing.

      We genuinely appreciate your constructive feedback on the menu, buttons, and user interface. We understand that there’s room for improvement, and we’re actively working on refining each tool and menu for a more native style and seamless workflow. The white cards you mentioned are a step in that direction. Ensuring proper and consistent translations and labeling is high on our priority list, and we’re making changes to our internal processes and tools to address this. In fact, we release updates about every other week, each with improvements based on user feedback like yours.

      Regarding the font size, we’re glad to let you know that you can customize it to your preference. Simply go to the EasyVFR 4 menu, select “Preferences,” and then choose “Readability” to adjust the font size as needed.

      Once again, thank you for your valuable input. We’re committed to making EasyVFR a top-notch tool for our users, and your feedback is instrumental in achieving that. Please don’t hesitate to reach out if you have any further suggestions or concerns.

      Warm regards,
      Tim

    Hello
    It is great if you use EV4 on a tablet in the plane.
    On the other hand, it is a pity not to have SafeSky on Dynon because it would require a third screen (iPhone or iPad) in the case of an aircraft already equipped with 2 Dynon and space would be lacking in an ULM.
    The objective is still to look outside to ensure safety.
    Cordially.

    Hello,
    Does the frequent user suscription to PocketFMS permit to beneficie of all safesky services ?
    Best regard

      Hi Jean-Luc,

      Unfortunately not; you will need a SafeSky premium license eventually to keep keep using this integration after the 30 days trial. Its an add-on license you can either obtain from SafeSky or via our own shop (which we prefer of course ;-))

  6. Rob Weijers

    Hi Patrice,

    Of course its most important to keep looking outside! But technology can assist human observations in some great ways, and this traffic integration is a good example.

    We are in close contact with Dynon and are evaluating possibilities to feed this information into SkyView systems also.

  7. Jozef Poffyn

    Hello,
    I already have a safesky premium subscription. Will the integration automatically continue when the trial-period ends 15 april, or do I have to do something?

    • Rob Weijers

      Hi Jozef,

      You can activate your existing SafeSky Premium license to EasyVFR 4 from within the latest SafeSky App. See https://support.easyvfr4.aero/help/safesky-premium for details, scroll down to the section “How to use my SafeSky Premium license bought at SafeSky in EasyVFR?”

  8. Jozef Poffyn

    Thanks Rob,
    once Safesky coupled with EV4 on a device having both, it immediately also works on a device with only EV4. Great!
