Anyone use an iPad to view charts? What's a good app for this?

Recommended Posts

I'd like to use my iPad to view charts as I think its the most intuitive and convenient way to view charts during flight. What app do you guys use and suggest?

a big advantage - it is free and comes with the charts (US + Canada).

 

If you have specific charts (your own, FSX specific, etc, etc) that you want to view - there are numerous apps to view pdf, doc and other document formats.

I have my own charts in pdf format that I want to view... but I'm looking for one that's aim for pilots because I like to be able to enter in the ICAO code and have it pull up the charts for that airport. PDF readers work, but it doesn't have this in mind.

I use navigraph charts on iPad or android - but it is payware unfortunately- also use their fmc data.

All the best

Thanks for the suggestions, but I really like the new LIDO charts, they are very clean, modern and simple to read.

Another vote for Navigraph (Lido), although the Aerosoft offering also looks good.

Navigraph and Aerosoft offer LIDO charts. I find the Aerosoft iPad Charts app a little better in terms of ease of use than the Navigraph one, although conversely their desktop FMC Nav Data Updater app is really not that great compared to the very slick one from Navigraph. Certainly no keen simmer should be without charts and updated nav data inside the aircraft.

I have it on both my iphone and ipad.

 

+1, they're quite good.
