FlyLogical Mobile Apps

Really Simple Moving Map


What's New


New app for iOS, Google Play Store, and Amazon App Store. Tracks your location in real-time on a moving map, plus other assorted functions. Essentially, a mobile app "wrapper" around FlyLogical's Really Simple Moving Map website, providing the convenience of a packaged app compared with just the browser.




Overview


An alternative to the mapping / geo-location apps that come bundled with your device but which "never quite seems to do what you want" from a technical / feature point-of-view.

Features include:

* "Moving map"  (with base maps provided by OpenStreetMaps) which tracks your (device's) location, direction & speed of movement (based on successive location fixes), and altitude (based on GPS)
* Point-ahead "time-line" indicating where you will be if you continued in a straight line (as-the-crow-flies) at your current speed
* Search for any location (globally) via Google search (and/or search the FlyLogical Cloud database), and pin a Marker on the map at the location resulting from that search -- and/or click anywhere on the map and pin a Marker there
* For any Marker you've pinned on the map (either directly or via search result):
* View the bearing (to/from) and the distance between the marker position and your current location, plus the time it would take to reach the Marker location from your current location if you now headed directly towards the Marker at your current speed
* View the sunrise & sunset times, and the remaining daylight hours (at the current time) for the given Marker location
* View the details of the Sun's track across the sky during the whole day
* Terminator illustrating global day-time /night-time
* "Beacon" function for sharing your location (via Twitter), should you wish to
* Receive aviation weather briefings (decoded METARs & TAFs) from reporting stations nearest to the Marker location (determined automatically). Note: these briefings are an excellent source of global, real-time, weather information which are relevant to many activities beyond just aviation
* Save the Marker location to the FlyLogical Cloud (database) for convenient re-use later (retrievable via the search functionality described above)
* Routes functionality whereby you can display a route (i.e., a series of connected waypoints) on the map, and monitor your current location and progress relative to that route. Aviation-inspired, the routes assume straight-lines (actually great-circles) between the waypoints, rather than, for example, road networks. This is in the interests of simplicity, and means that all navigation is "as-the-crow-flies" ("ATCF"). This approach is effective even for road routes (but you have to define the route segments to follow the road, RSMM does not do this for you). Route-specific portability features enable you to:
-- Create / import routes from a variety of sources
-- Export / save / view routes in a variety of ways / formats
* A "breadcrumb trail" feature which records and displays your location history (i.e., a trace of where you've been)
* Create shapes, display them on the map, and share them. Available shapes include:
-- point
-- line (arbitrary number of vertices)
-- circle and circular arc (portion of circle)
-- square
-- rectangle
-- triangle
-- polygon (arbitrary number of vertices)
* The shapes can be specified as being constructed from either Great-Circle segments (on a reference Ellipsoid), or from Rhumb-line segments (i.e., straight lines on Mercator projections)
* All visual attributes of the shapes can be customised e.g., line color & opacity, line thickness, fill colour & opacity, etc.
* Save the shapes (individually or in groups) to the FlyLogical Cloud (database) for convenient re-use later (and for sharing with the public if desired)
* Export the shapes (individually or in groups)  to KML file format (sent by email) for ease-of-use with KML-supporting apps such as GoogleEarth.

iNavCalc VFR Flight Planner


What's New


This latest update (v4) is a complete rewrite of the app for iOS, Google Play Store, Amazon App Store, and Windows 10. It has been streamlined compared with earlier versions, and no longer requires registration with a FlyLogical user account (though registration is still supported and enables additional functionality such as accessing waypoints etc., saved in the Cloud).

Overview


This app assists pilots in their VFR pre-flight navigation planning:

* Create your route by simply typing the list of desired waypoints
* Single click to generate your Pilot's LOG (PLOG) comprising all your navigation calculations for your route. Your PLOG, MET (METARS, TAFs), NOTAMS, and NAVCOM FREQUENCIES reports are made available via a file download page. The URL for this page can be shared (via email, social media, etc.)
* PLOG features:
-- drift uses the current MET to determine winds aloft for each waypoint along the route
-- magnetic heading uses a numerical geomagnetic model to calculate the magnetic deviation
-- altimetry (transition levels, flight levels, etc) and performance (density altitudes, freezing altitude, etc) calculations along the route
-- solar angle calculations (azimuth and zenith) along the route
-- includes fuel consumption profile along the route (including consideration of fuel consumption for initial climb-out, and any en route changes in altitude)
-- includes range and endurance estimation for possible diversion
* Specify wide range of parameters for the PLOG calculations including altitude profile along the route, airspeed profile along the route, date and time of departure (including UTC offset for local time), waypoint at which the stopwatch is zeroed (e.g., to enable PLOG times to be computed relative to a specified starting waypoint which can be different from the departure airfield).
* Save parameters & preferences for convenience and later re-use (requires free registration)
* Creates ".gpx" ".fpl" format files for easy import into other software tools and devices
* View route in GoogleMaps, SkyVector, and FlyLogical's ReallySimpleMovingMap web app
