*30 Days Free Trial on initial download!* Plan. File. Fly. Log. Garmin Pilot is the most comprehensive suite of tools for the iPad designed specifically for general aviation and corporate pilots. Flight planning, charts, interactive maps, weather briefing resources and navigation capabilities; it’s all included. The app’s intuitive interface mirrors those on the newest Garmin touchscreen avionics so you can go seamlessly from preflight to inflight. Plan Garmin Pilot’s powerful capabilities start with pre-flight planning, providing pilots with the most comprehensive aviation weather information to make better-informed flight decisions. Pilots can check NEXRAD radar, visible and infrared cloud imagery, METARs, TAFs, AIRMETs, SIGMETs, PIREPs, NOTAMs, winds and temperature aloft, TFRs and lightning data. With Garmin Pilot, data can be displayed over Garmin’s interactive maps that support track-up navigation, VFR sectional or an IFR low or high en-route chart to visualize the weather for your route. Add text-based weather widgets and use the exclusive NavTrack feature to view weather along the planned route. File With Garmin Pilot, users can easily enter a flight plan and interactively edit it on the map. Pre-loaded forms make it quick to save and reuse data for frequently flown routes. And when the flight plan is ready, Garmin Pilot makes it simple to file, amend or close the flight plan via Leidos Flight Service or DUATS. Fly Garmin Pilot provides full en-route navigation capability on its moving map. Pilots can also navigate with Garmin’s patented panel, a GPS-driven instrument pack with a graphical HSI directional display and indicators for groundspeed, altitude and vertical speed. After takeoff, pilots can continue to view real-time weather in the U.S. and traffic information by wirelessly connecting to Garmin’s GDL 39 3D portable ADS-B Receiver (sold separately). Log Garmin Pilot includes a comprehensive electronic logbook that syncs with flyGarmin. The logbook automatically generates entries based upon GPS data collected during the flight, tracks currency, supports manual entries, endorsements and creates reports.

Only one complain

Would like for then to open up the software to allow status ads-b compatibility. It would help them be more competitive with Foreflight. I might switch once my subscription is up.

Great value

Just I learned, how to use. More for your dollar.

Garmin Pilot

Love it especially the information wheel around an airport!!! Easy to use, best information, do my trip planning on my phone, good customer service. The only negative is if you have three gps devices two G3X, Aera 660, and Garmin Pilot App, the annual fees, are $150 each device. I think they should have no charge, on the 3rd device…. Just saying! What do you think?

Contiously developing app with strong support

If you own your own aircraft with bunch of Garmin touch screen units then go for it, if you fly someone else’s plane then use other app like sky demon , wing x. ForeFlight is for commercial use, especially if you collect fuel points.

Split screen

Can you make your app iPadOS split screen capable?

I wish Garmin would listen to their customers . . .

Can not file a flight plan from unregistered airfields. Can not make full use of field 18 in ICAO flight plan form. Can not add ETA to FIR boundaries in flight plan for filing purposes. Can not add or change Search and Rescue requirements in flight plan. All of the above applies to VFR flight plans and prevents successful filing of a flight plan through the app. South African airspace data does not include published frequencies for General Flying areas and Special Rules areas. Same data set does not include published VFR reporting points and published VFR transit routes. Same data set is missing hundreds of airfields (a major safety item). Auto generated logbook data includes up to 15 hours of blank data before the start of a flight. Queries submitted to support receive a notional response with no resolution thereto. Subscription costs the same as in the US, etc but all of the deficiencies listed above remain unaddressed! Based on the above it is hard to justify having the product considering its main benefits, being able to file flight plans and safety and data, are either not functional in our environment or mostly incomplete. I have previously communicated all of the above to Garmin on several occasions and not one item (and there are more that I can not recall at the moment) has been resolved. The ONLY reason I have the app is because I spent nearly $20k on Garmin equipment (G3X, etc) for my plane and the app talks directly to this. If I had known about the issues listed above I probably would not have invested in the Garmin equipment as a lot of the deficiencies above are apparent in the G3X system too. A really poor show from Garmin!

Garmin GPS on Your Lap

It’s Fore Flight with a Garmin layout and Android feel. The new Leidos briefing included in the trip planning is a game changer. I would always switch back and forth between this app and Leidos. Now it’s all in app. This app is an excellent addition to anyone that wants to pair up with their GPS or Stratus. Highly recommend. And it’s also cheaper than Fore Flight.

Garmin Pilot Review

Garmin continues to add features and improvements to their GP app. Overall this is a very good product. I can only imagine the complexities behind the curtain. This being said, app still drops off line regularly, especially when connected with a 510 card inside the nxi or 3000. I do really like the availability of charts to any airport being at your fingertips. Keep up the good work.

My Favorite EFB

Best EFB to fly with if you have Garmin avionics. Love the Map with split screen, especially the dedicated traffic view. It lets me use a North-up map while seeing traffic in Track-up mode. Also I find Pilot to be less buggy than ForeFlight and more intuitive UI.

Some function are not working properly

iPhone 7 Some functions are not working properly. Please fix Profile view. After loading altitudes constraint on flight plan nothing changes on profile view.
