Adds Turn-By-Turn Surface Directions To Touchscreen Aviation
Most of us know pilots who, at one time or another, have taken
their automotive GPS units flying to save a few bucks over the
gold-plated aviation versions. Now, Adventure Pilot, LLC has
partnered with iGO Navigation to create a new road navigation
add-on with 3D visuals and voice guided turn-by-turn driving
directions for its iFly 700, which was introduced last year.
The seven-inch touchscreen device retails for $549, and offers
US Sectionals, IFR Low Enroute charts, Airport Diagrams, Approach
Plates, and more, with subscription updates starting at $69 per
year. iFly Streets will have a small one-time fee for new
purchases. Existing iFly GPS owners will also have an upgrade
option on the iFlyGPS.com store as well. The price for the streets
package is not yet indicated on the company's website.
Adventure Pilot President Walter Boyd explains, "We continue to
listen to current iFly owners as well as potential buyers, working
diligently to add new features such as iFly Streets to the iFly
GPS. This truly makes the iFly GPS a beautiful addition to any
pilot’s flight bag and ensures unprecedented value."
