I am running SD for Android version 3.0.5.18699. According to the Flying with Skydemon video, some aerodrome charts are available as overlay on the map. In the video the example with the aerodrome EGKB is shown, so I downloaded the UK maps and the charts for EGKB. But there is no yellow aeroplane symbol on the chart list, which should indicate that overlay is supported. The documentation doesn't say that this feature is iPad specific. So why don't I see the yellow aeroplane symbol on the chart in the Plate tab?

Well, I think it's time they were.

Hi skyemon team
What is your timeline to make an overlay for georeferenced plate charts?
That is important for my decision buy skydemon or anp.

I had a look at EasyVFR. They support chart overlay. And those charts include hold pattern, approach and departure routes. Take alook at Google Play and the EasyVFR screenshots shown. That overlay feature is really impressive! And really useful!

I definitely think it is time for SD to support this very soon to stay ahead of the competitors.

i just bought a used ipad mini today on ebay just so i can use geo referenced plates with Skydemon. It will be awesome and a big help as well.
I used to always dig around my papers and look at the circuit or taxiways.. now I will just have to click on the ipad and have one less task to do.

Hi,

may I ask, what makes it so difficult to use the georeferenced plates on Android?! I mean, the data and the know-how seems to be there ;-)
I am in the middle of deciding between iPad and Android... I'd like to go for an Android, but on the other hand I don't want to miss this very handy feature.

There is no universally available PDF renderer available on Android devices. On iOS, it is part of the operating system, very high quality and extremely fast.

Personally, I would get an iPad Mini Retina for SkyDemon - it's the best device for the job.

I know people complain about the cost, but not too long ago few would balk at spending upwards of £1000 on a proprietary Garmin device. The cost of an iPad Mini in the big scheme of things is fairly inconsequential.
