Honeywell unit BendixKing has announced that it will end product support for its myWingMan electronic flight bag app, effective immediately. In an email to subscribers, the company noted that the app did not represent the value and quality usually offered to customers.
The app was previewed at the AOPA Aviation Summit in October 2012 and released in the iTunes store later in the month. The app featured SmartRoute and SmartAltitude functionality, geo-referenced charts and taxi diagrams, moving map, synthetic vision, and weather overlay; navigation logs, flight planning, weather briefing, flight plan filing, and more. BendixKing added several new features in 2013, including airborne smart routing, user-selectable 2-D and 3-D terrain awareness warning system (TAWS) and obstacles, Automatic Dependent Surveillance-Broadcast (ADS-B) weather, and attitude and heading reference system sensors.
A one-year VFR subscription cost $99, while IFR cost $149. Customers will get a full refund on outstanding subscriptions. The company said it will focus on creating a new EFB product sometime in the future.
