Nav Trainer Pro App Reviews

  • CFI-I Review (Updated)

    By yinYangMountain
    Nav Trainer 3.4.1 IPad Pro 9.7 v.11.1.2 • Settings > Instruments “BIG \/ SMALL” does not work. • Motion sensors still changes heading at warp speed. Absolutely useless. • If you are going to provide an option for turning via the motions sensors, use an algorithm which works similar to a real control wheel/yoke. [Ref. X-Plane 10 for iPad] • Add delay variable when rolling in/out of standard rate. [Ref. VOR Tracker] • Based upon most textbooks (FAA, Jeppesen, ASA, Rod Machado, etc.) and typical training aircraft with ‘standard’ instrument configurations, the HI should be either on top or bottom—not in the middle of the NAV instruments. If you disagree, make the option to place any instrument in any of the tree locations. [Ref. IFR Trainer] • My guess, however I could be wrong, it’s general aviation students/pilots or CFIs using this app. Having to press twice to achieve a standard rate of 3 degrees per second is distractive. Put an option in Settings to set the default to match the pilot’s preference. ! Based upon the Law of Primacy, train the student’s eyes, motions, and thinking (even with simple trainers) according to norms/standards from the very beginning. Negative Transfer of Learning is expensive! “It’s an iPad typically held in the left/right hand” is a poor excuse. ! “This is not a flight simulator” is not an excuse for making something that could have been made otherwise and better with a little research, foresight and testing by a few CFIs / CFI-Is.
  • Updated for iOS 11

    Thanks for keeping this app alive with an update for 64bit!
  • Update to IOS

    By IOS-1
    Please update
  • Please Update

    By The Code Kid
    $5 is a lot of money for an app that hasn't been updated to work with the new iOS
  • Not bad

    By cmryanjr
    Needs a bearing pointer to the station in conjunction with the HSI
  • Great App but needs an update

    By skratchrecord
    Great app to help better understand VOR navigation and instrument interpretation. I wish the blue banner didn't come down every time I touch the instrument panel (it's distracting) and if double tapping the instruments from vor to hsi or adf could be a little smoother would be greatly appreciated. An update is defiantly needed. $4.99 would be a bargain if the functionality was better. But a little much for the app in its current state.
  • The best app

    By MaxMink
    This app is the best i ever used. It is very user friendly, helps you understand and create navigation scenarios and even use it to demonstrate and explain about the navigation instruments to your student !
  • Feature for next update

    By mjl941
    I think you should add a clock/timer feature for practicing holds. Besides that app is great.
  • Great Training tool

    By cessna22
    This app is simple yet does an excellent job of helping you visualize the relationship between what the gauges show and the plane's actual position. I agree-OBS scrolling could stand to be a little less sensitive. Useful tool for ground school.
  • Nicely done!

    Well put together; really gives good visual interpretation of what your nav indicators are showing you, including wind effects. Only suggestion would be to make OBS and DG a little less sensitive so that changes could be more precisely set. Test feature is great - really makes you think about what you're seeing on the DG & OBS. About to get an iPad; hope this is set up to run on the iPad, too, with a larger display.
