Flight Released

FLIGHT APP at Garmin

This app was built around the original Flight Fields data field.

This multi page application provides live course navigation, distance remaining and ETE to a way-point and to the return position were the flight began. The way-points are programmable from Garmin Express or Connect phone app. The Destination (Long/Lat) Way-points entered through Connect App or Garmin Express. Way-points can be changed with phone during flight. Supports two way points. if a navigation way point is used, the way-point will automatic switch to the second way-point. The navigation uses a 1 Km radius of the navigation waypoint to switch to the final destination.

How to use:

From the custom user configuration menu in Garmin Express or Garmin Connect, enter your destination Longitude and Latitude way-points in decimal degrees. The ETE and Distance Remaining are determined by the way point position and your current position. The heading bug is the course of your destination.
