Major Release 2012

Postby bbaron » Sat Dec 08, 2012 8:49 pm

Dear pilots. Finally the goVFR team publishes a new major release on which we worked hard recently. In the background, the complete code had to be changed to benefit from the full capacity of a new google maps API version. This speeds up your user experience and brings some additional functionality to goVFR.

We are happy to boost the app with some popular demanded functions that make goVFR to an even more complete and definitively the hottest flight planner online.
goVFR is now able to plan alternate routes, lets you switch the units from nautical to metric or imperial or handles *.fpl import and export.

The full list of changes:
New functions
  • Alternate routes
  • Customize unit system for distances, speed and fuel mass
  • Import routes (*.gpx, *.fpl)
  • Display beeline between start- and endpoint
  • Visualization of fuel ranges (reserve, empty, excess)

  • Delete flight plans from cockpit page
  • Pass on altitude to all following waypoints with one click
  • Improved search function
  • Export supports *.fpl file format
  • Import tracks supports *.fpl file format
  • Way point info-window now show leg distances
  • Pilot short links support usernames with dots (i.e.
