Re: Naviator 3.8.5

Im having a problem putting search patterns at any particular location. Can you make them start at designated user waypoints? also, the keyboard input for the initial waypoint stays on caps lock. can you stop this?

Re: Naviator 3.8.5

The ability to start at a user waypoint will be added to the next release. In the meantime, you can use a lat/lon coordinate as the starting point. The acceptable lat/lon formats are outlined in Appendix A of the user guide.

Cheers,
Mike

For us non-Playstore folks using Fire tablets, can the link to APK be updated to 3.8.5 (goes to 3.8.4 currently)?

Re: Naviator 3.8.5

I am a little worried about the lack of updates.  I don't what is happening but I really don't want Naviator to phase out as I really like this App. For me Naviator is very user friendly.

Re: Naviator 3.8.5

Anyone else submit email to support@naviator.com or mike@naviator.com and not receive a reply?  Used to be the replies came quick but I sent one back in mid May 2017, and never heard anything back.  I waited a month and posted here in the bugs section.  It's been a month and no reply.

Mike hasn't appeared to have posted here since May. 

When new features that get requested by a bunch of people for YEARS never get addressed, well that's on the customer to determine the value of the product.  But if a link to TFRs, weather, or other things break and don't get fixed, a producer owes it to his subscriber base to sub the work out, even at a big loss of revenue.  Because staying the course will result in a big loss of revenue too.

Many here feel the same way - Naviator is really the best out there at any price.  And I think it's why many of us are so frustrated.

Re: Naviator 3.8.5

I agree that Mike has been less responsive lately for unknown reasons, but this week?  Come on, it's Oshkosh!

Re: Naviator 3.8.5

Is Mike at Oshkosh?  Searching the exhibitor list gets no hits on either "Naviator" or "123West".
