When tablets entered the market, pilots quickly recognized the benefit of using them to display their charts electronically, cutting down the need to have VFR and IFR charts folded and scattered throughout the cockpit. While many still carry paper charts as a backup, more are using apps as their primary means of pulling up navigation charts—nice and neat in one electronic display. This week AOPA takes a look at five charts and maps apps recommended by AOPA members. These are not endorsements of any app.
If you have any iPad/iPhone/Android apps you think I should review in the upcoming months, please pass them along to me here. I continue to appreciate all the suggestions.
