Garmin Pilot My-Cast Updated With Geo-Referenced FliteCharts

Navigation and XM Weather Integration Also Included

Garmin subsidiary Digital Cyclone has updated its Garmin Pilot My-Cast application for Apple iOS-based devices that offers geo-referenced approach charts, secondary navigational capability and optional integration with XM WX Weather. Garmin Pilot My-Cast is a premium aviation weather, flight planning, flight filing and navigation application exclusively for customers in the U.S. and Canada.

“The use of smart devices in the cockpit is becoming more and more ubiquitous,” said Craig Burfeind, president of Digital Cyclone Tuesday. “The added functionality of the new Pilot My- Cast increases the number of ways in which pilots can use these devices throughout the entire flight experience.”

The newest version of Pilot My-Cast features geo-referenced FliteCharts and airport taxi diagrams, bringing pilots a new level of situational awareness. This latest version also can utilize the iPad’s internal GPS receiver (or external GPS receiver, sold separately) as a means of secondary navigation. The new app also lets users connect to XM WX Satellite Weather wirelessly through the Baron Mobile Link paired with a Satellite Weather receiver (sold separately, subscription required) to receive highly-detailed weather forecasts and current conditions, including high resolution NEXRAD radar, lightning, METARs and winds aloft. Best of all, unlike the limitations of conventional cellular transmissions, pilots can continually view the latest weather reports while at altitude.

Similar to Pilot My-Cast’s existing iOS version, the new app includes functions that let pilots easily create routes and file a flight plan, view weather conditions and forecasts over their phone’s wireless network, and access the AOPA Airport Directory. A Pilot My-Cast application is being developed for Android devices as well and is expected to be available in June.

The new version of Garmin Pilot My-Cast for iOS is expected to be available in the app store in mid-April as a free download for the first 30 days. After that, users can pay a monthly fee of $9.99 or an annual subscription of $99.99 for the base package including navigation and XM WX Satellite Weather integration. Geo-referenced FliteCharts will be available for an additional $49.99 annually.
