ATC and Flight Service Freqs ?

Hoping you will be adding the nearest ATC and Flight Service Freqs  to the Nearest Page.

Also, when showing the FSS Freq it would be nice to present it like -> SELECT name || ' FSS in the area of '|| area || ' : ' || freq

This shows what your radio call to FSS should sound like since the AREA is part of the Freq downloads from the FAA.
Like "Columbia Flight Service in the area of Downtown on 122.40" this is .........

While your at it, the closest AWOS is also nice to have if presented with the distance and direction


Thanks
Paul

Hi Paul, adding these additional frequencies to the nav database is on the shortlist of features for inclusion in the app.

Cheers,
Mike

Re: ATC and Flight Service Freqs ?

Apologies, rotrhead. It has taken longer than expected but I do still plan to add these features to the app. I'll try my best to add them as soon as I can.

Cheers,
Mike

Re: ATC and Flight Service Freqs ?

Still waiting---This should have been one of the BASICS for the software....long before 3D synthetics.

Just thought the other day, I haven't seen any software out there that shows nearest approaches ( ie select checkbox of ILS VOR or others and show in the NEAREST Lists) This would be a great addition - AFTER the nearest ATC and Flight Service Freqs have been done.

Thanks
Paul

Re: ATC and Flight Service Freqs ?

As users/customers, I think we can say what we would like to see.  As developer, it's up to Mike to prioritize and decide what enhancements to make and when.

Re: ATC and Flight Service Freqs ?

I very much agree with Paul (rotrhead).  It's hard for me to imagine any realistic non-emergency scenario in which synthetic vision on a tablet would be useful.  What are people using it for? (I sure hope VFR pilots aren't using this to fly low level in the mountains at night or in IMC!) 

But things like being able to easily find the local ATC and/or Flight Service frequency, or the closest automated weather broadcast do have daily utility.

Re: ATC and Flight Service Freqs ?

While you wait for your request to be implemented, why don't you download the AOPA FlyQ app? I consider it a must-have in my electronic flight bag. It has what you're asking and so much more.

Re: ATC and Flight Service Freqs ?

Mike,

Anything on the nearest ATC freq's ?

I still have a Garmin 295 that is 13 years old in the cockpit I would like to get rid of BUT IT has this capability !

Re: ATC and Flight Service Freqs ?

I agree that this would be a valuable feature, but one thing I do when looking for an atc freq is just pull up an approach chart for a nearby airport...
