Initial use - issues

I had it crash on the first time I pulled down charts. The next time I had it pull down fewer charts at a time and it worked. First time it was 4 sectionals and 3 TACs, then just the sectionals and just the TACs.

I'm not understanding how to build a flight plan and more importantly modify the flight plan. Hmmm, I see some now. Maybe I'm slow, but it doesn't seem anywhere near as easy as with SkyVector (on a PC).

Issues:

  • It adds user defined waypoints instead of the nearest airport/VOR/whatever. Later I can change it, but it's not simple (at least not yet). Both tries created a new waypoint.

  • I can't seem to remove a waypoint on a chart, even after selecting "Remove waypoint". I can remove it in the "View Route" page.

  • While it knows where I am I can't get the route set right for the starting point after making a bunch of edits. I have the route in order, but it wants to start somewhere in the route.

I'm using a HTC Thunderbolt.

Re: Initial use - issues

Hi Wayne, thanks for your feedback!

I'll look into the download crash. I haven't seen that bug before.

It seems as though you've figured out how to build a flight plan, but I have posted a quick "how-to" in this thread for anyone else who may be confused:  http://forum.naviatorapp.com/viewtopic.php?id=2

I agree that there is a bit of a learning curve to the app. I'll try to think of some ways to make it more intuitive.

Regarding the bug you encountered while removing waypoints, I can't seem to reproduce the behaviour. Would you mind letting me know the flight plan you were using when you encountered the bug?

Thanks!
Mike

Re: Initial use - issues

Your other post about how-to was very helpful.  Do you have a manual?  A PDF would be great.  I'm sure a lot of my struggles are new to this app and new to android.  Some instructions would make it really easy to use.
