PLAN YOUR FLIGHT
Start your preflight planning with Garmin Pilot. The app provides instant access to comprehensive U.S. and Canadian weather data — including NEXRAD radar, visible and infrared cloud imagery, METARs, TAFs, AIRMETs, SIGMETs, PIREPs, NOTAMs, winds and temperature aloft, PIREPs, TFRs and lightning data — as it becomes available.Quickly view animated NEXRAD radar, check upper-level winds and temperatures and identify cells that might produce lightning. You can even overlay a wide range of weather options on the map screen to see how cloud cover or precipitation will affect your flight. The exclusive NavTrack feature lets you “look ahead” to preview how changing weather conditions might alter your flight. The app also provides fuel prices along your route to help you plan the most economical flight. FILE YOUR FLIGHT PLAN
Start by entering your desired route to view it on the map screen. From there, you can easily overlay weather, pan across the entire route, pinch to zoom in for detail, or graphically modify any leg of your flight. The app serves as a legal source of weather briefing.Built-in calculators estimate fuel burn, enroute legs and arrival times for your flight. You can even use preloaded forms to save and reuse clearance data for frequently flown flight plans. When you’re ready, you can easily file, amend and close the flight plan you create directly from your device via DTC DUAT or CSC DUATS. FLY WITH PRECISION
Using your device’s built-in GPS receiver (or compatible external receiver, sold separately), Garmin Pilot provides full enroute navigation on the moving map display. Our patented Panel Page provides situational awareness, including a graphical HSI directional display and indicators for groundspeed, altitude, rate of turn and vertical speed. A unique Radial Menu provides easy onscreen access to create a user waypoint or navigate Direct-To, as well as view current weather conditions and airport/navaid information at a glance. The app also automatically keeps track of your ETE, ETA, crosstrack error, distance to waypoint, current position and more. Optional inflight XM® satellite weather data is also available with an optional third-party receiver. With Garmin Pilot, you can declutter your cabin and cut down on the amount of paper you need for navigation. A wealth of electronic flight bag capabilities allow you to view paper charts and approach plates right on your device. The app comes with IFR enroute and VFR sectional charts you can select as your basemap, as well as Garmin FliteCharts and geo-referenced SafeTaxi® diagrams. You can upgrade the standard Garmin FliteCharts with geo-referencing capability for dynamic graphical nav guidance from startup to shutdown.
**Note: Garmin Pilot app only serves USA for charts and navigation. Currently only available for USA iTunes accounts. Expanded coverage expected in future.**
