GNX375 is now supported!

5
Fantastic app after another 2 years of usage, however, just installed a GNX375 in my Cessna 172 for the ADS-B mandate but they don't seem to want to talk to Foreflight? Update 6/9/2019: Figured it out, ForeFlight Connect now works flawlessly go send flight plan to my panel and also send flight plan updates back to my iPad! Also was able to confirm it was receiving ADS-B traffic and weather the entire time during my last flight. Worked like a dream!

Geo reference not appearing on some approach plates..

Thanks to Albert and his quick response he explained how I had not selected all the states to be up dated that was the root cause of my problem. If I had use the pack feature it would have insured that all the information concerned on that flight path would be up dated....he also took time to explain why the Stratus / Sentry makes sense as a back up attitude indicator in the cockpit...He was a big help In resolving my issue along with all the good information .....Can’t thank him enough.

Not compatible with ipad 2

Despicable! Why am I not able to download an older version of the app??? What is now the scientific explanation to keep forcing unnecessary device upgrades. Somebody needs to put an end to this social slavery. Forcing people to upgrade so the big brother can keep making money. Go figure.

Can't say enough good

This thing is the best you can get. Don't blame the program if the sun blinds you and you can see the Ipad. Buy some sunglasses. I would be lost without my Foreflight... Wish I could give it 10 stars...

Decent app awful support

The app is overall pretty good. However, support is pretty much a joke. They need a phone number.

Imagery on iPhone

I don’t really use documents on the phone, so having to search for weather is a bit annoying.

Foreflight is a game changer for military flight instructors

5
I’ve been an avid ForeFlight user for about 3 years now. I’ve used it on deployment, at home, and as a flight instructor for the military’s newest Navy, Marine Corps, and Coast Guard aviators. Without a doubt, I can say this product has made me a better aviator and flight instructor. Between the situational awareness the product provides, the ability to see and plan for weather, or just being able to flex when your fly goes awry, Foreflight has consistently given me piece of mind. At this point, I pretty much consider it essential equipment every time I strap into the aircraft.

4.6 Star Rating. Quality, Intuitive, Incomparable

Personal opinion, ForeFlight should have a CFI package like WingX who provides it for free to active flight instructors. Or even a discounted version would be awesome. Top reason for writing my review is because the customer service that ForeFlight provides is fantastic. In a timely manner my issues were resolved and questions answered. They are great with getting back to you, whether that’s through social media or direct email to their customer service personnel. Also the fact that they added the documents section for iPhone now made a big impact on me liking the app. My only pet peeve overall is that I can’t view Winds/Temps Data for specific stations. From what I’ve seen the information is interpolated. Although I don’t think the information is inaccurate, it does seem reliable. I would like to know the data issued for the specific stations. I have cross checked ForeFlight and AviationWeather.GOV, there is a slight difference. As a CFII, I use this data to teach pilots how to interpolate themselves the winds aloft for their flight planning.

Weather briefing

The new weather briefing is TERRIBLE!!! Bring back the old briefings. The rest of the app does its job. Fix the briefings and I’ll give it 5 stars.
