WingX Pro7 Version 5 Approved For Multiple Mobile Devices

Adds ADS-B In-Flight Weather, Terrain-Enhanced VFR Sectionals And IFR Enroute Charts

Hilton Software has released an upgrade to its award-winning WingX Pro7 iPad navigation system with the addition of ADS-B in-flight weather, terrain-enhanced VFR sectionals and IFR low/high enroute charts, and WAAS-enabled GPS capability. WingX Pro7 Version 5’s new Moving Map also adds pinch-to-zoom, extremely high-resolution terrain, and TFRs.

Further enhancements in the program released Wednesday include the ability to display dual moving maps with overlaid terrain and ADS-B NEXRAD including geo-referenced approach charts with FAA-certified data for exceptional situational awareness.

“WingX Pro7’s Moving Map Engine has been re-engineered to take full advantage of the iPad 2’s new dual-core A5 processor," said Hilton Software founder Dr. Hilton Goldstein. "We continually strive to be on the leading-edge of mobile aviation technology and our latest release is a great example of that. We are shifting the mobile paradigm away from $3,000+ dedicated systems with high annual subscription fees.”

“We have been listening to our users,” continues Dr. Goldstein. “WingX Pro7 can print approach charts, rotate charts, dim the Moving Map with a simple-to-use brightness control, and find airports even if the user makes a typo in the airport name or city name. We have also achieved exceptional database compression to reduce download times and memory required. The most requested feature after VFR and IFR enroute charts has been in-flight weather. WingX Pro7’s ADS-B integration includes NEXRAD, METARs, TAFs, PIREPs, NOTAM-Ds, AIRMETs, and more – all in real-time while flying. An ADS-B receiver is required, but there are no monthly charges – a big step in our quest to make flying safer and more affordable.”

WingX Pro7 Version 5 is available now on the Apple App Store and is iOS 4.3 and iPad 2 compatible. WingX Pro7 Version 5 is a free update for registered users. WingX is available on iPhone, iPad and iPad 2, iPod Touch, Android, BlackBerry, and Windows Mobile devices.
