Air Navigation is flight planning and real time navigation application for pilots.
Air Navigation uses the internal (or external) GPS module and gyroscopes to compute the position, speed and attitude.
Planning a route can be done in seconds.
Un large number of add-on maps and data is available for download from within the application. The complete list of free and commercial maps and other products are available on our website www.xample.ch in the add ons section.
The application supports the following type of data:
- Aeronautical waypoints (more than 160000)
- Airspaces (more than 50 countries)
- Free maps (open source or from the public domain)
- ICAO navigation charts and Sectional charts
- ATC Flight Plans
- Approach charts (check list of countries available)
- Free Digital Elevation Model
- Aerial photos and commercial digital elevation model for the synthetic vision and terrain awareness features
- Notams (requires a subscription)
Air Navigation allows local flight recording or online flight tracking from your personal user account (free on our services.xample.ch website)

An iPhone/iPod with a GPS is required to use realtime navigation modules. Internal GPS is disabled when the iPhone's "Airplane mode" is active. Works with external GPS kit for iPod touch and iPhone.
The accuracy of the navigation instruments is better when the iPhone has a clear view of the sky (near the front cockpit for ex.). It may take 1 to 3 minutes to acquire a good GPS signal..
Please note that this software is not intended to replace a certified navigation device. You should always use official aeronautical documentation when preparing and performing a flight. You should always use certified navigation devices when performing a flight.
Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life.
