Thought I would reincarnate this thread on PPGpS :lol:

After watching this little app in the Android market for a while and looking at the feedback it does seems very good. Certainly at £1.71 I think it is an absolute steal when you compare it some of the devices that you could pay £500 or more for. If you have an Android phone grab it while it is so cheap as I wouldnt be surprised if the price goes up!

I can plot routes on memory map using CAA charts and overlay them on this apps google base map ready for a flight and there is plenty of data and info provided on screen, without being too cluttered, including an automatic home feature and fuel burn rate so you cannot get lost or run out of fuel :D.

Granted you wont get advanced features like airspace infringment warnings..but couple this with a lower end Alti/Vario and I dont think you could really go far wrong if you are a novice and just starting out like me.

Now if I could only get my flying skills good enough for XC flight I might have something to actually use it for!
