Hello dear forum,
I've been flying with Skydemon for a while now, because Jeppesen MFD VFR has been taken off the market.

Unfortunately, I personally miss some important things. For example, at Friedrichshafen Airport (EDNY) there is no height information for the mandatory reporting points. Furthermore, the waiting round (holding pattern) is missing.

The parking lot for general aviation was also located at MFD VFR etc.

Due to the lack of such important features, the program is unfortunately not yet perfect. If Skydemon displayed the rounds etc. as in MFD VFR, many pilots would switch to this product.

LG from Austria

why can't you display this information directly on the map of skydemon. jeppesen mfd vfr could do that too !!!!

but it is important to label the entrances (A1, A2 etc.) at the top of the warehouse :-)

What makes you think the VRPs at EDNY have a designated level associated with them? I can find nothing in the source data to indicate they do.

This is a screenshot from Jeppesen MFD, here the heights of the mandatory reporting points and the holding company are already shown on the map. Unfortunately I do not have the AIP from Germany.

The last screenshot shows the taxiway with taxiways and so on

Your screenshots look like scanned, used paper charts.
Maybe, they’re outdated?

The latest official DFS chart indicates a maximum altitude of 3000 ft for approaches and departures.

Yes, it is a screenshot of a printout of the approach chart. The card is from Dec 2019.I am sure that if Skydemon would directly integrate the maps like Jeppesen MFD (approach maps and detailed airport maps), more pilots would buy SD !!

What was the price of an annual subscription to MFD, including all the VFR info and plates, compared with SD and the German VFR add-on?

If the altitude data you need is shown on the airfield plates and area charts that come in the DFS VFR add-in, then you've just saved over a €100 per year. You can get weather from lots of places these days.
