New and cheaper alternative to Navigraph

Recommended Posts

Competition is great!

A new flight planner, NavData and LIDO chart provider is getting underway with their offering: https://www.aviaplanner.com/

3-day trial for free.

A monthly sub at $3.50 or $29 for the year.

"[Functionality] sections marked with an asterisk are under development and will be available in the next 1-2 months."

 

Perhaps anyone who doesn't like Navigraph's cost could try this provider and report back?

Looks very interesting, especially for that price. I'd actually prefer the LIDO charts, but I fear that Navigraph is now so intertwined with the MSFS ecosystem that it will be difficult to compete.

It should be noted that its alternative to Navigraph Charts not Navigraph itself - it contains only charts services for now it seems

AIRAC updates will be available within 1-2 months according to the website.

It looks like a service to keep an eye on. For the moment, I'm happy with my Navigraph subscription but when/if AviaPlanner gets their AIRAC updates in place, if the price remains what it is currently, I'll definitely take another look and consider switching.

I much prefer Lido charts. Will happily give this a go.  Was really disappointed originally when Navigraph ditched the Lido charts for Jepp

Does it have a flight planner? I guess Navigraph won't allow them to integrate with SimBrief.

So is this meant as a supplement to Navigraph? They are so integrated into the whole lifecycle of flight simming that I find it impossible to not use them.

I would say that once AviaPlanner gets their Navdata AIRAC updates service in place, this would be intended as a replacement for Navigraph rather than a supplement.

People said that same thing about WordPerfect and Lotus 123, among others.

Wonder what the established automakers thought when they first heard about the upstart Tesla electric vehicles?

I’m quite happy with navigraph but perhaps if anything, some competition will bring the price down a bit.

My Navigraph subscription is one of the best subscriptions I pay for… in life, not just flight simming. It has the best value. Competition is good, though — but that’s aiming high. We’ll see!

Likewise. Not so much bring prices down, but should stop them from increasing without much restraint.

Might also see new features brought in to differentiate between the different products.
