WARNING: The app is intended only as an in-flight aid and should not be used as a primary information source. If the app contains a barometric altimeter, it will not function in a pressurized aircraft and should not be used in a pressurized aircraft.
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 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 second navigation way point is used, the way-point will automatic switch to the second way-point. To override the automatic way point switch, the second way point can be set as the course by pressing the lap button.
NOTE: The navigation uses a 1 Km radius of the navigation waypoint to switch to the final destination.
