Hi,
It would be really useful to annotate the map when in navigation mode.

For example when you get taxi instructions, you could draw the route on the airfield map before taxing out, thus ensuring you are following the route as instructed!

You could do that now, by creating a new route by touching points and rubber-banding on a super zoomed in view of the chart. Here is one I did for Gatwick!



But really? How many airfields are so complicated that writing down the taxi instructions, looking at the chart and then following them is so hard?

No, in NAV mode, not in planning mode. After we have already hit the go flying button. There are some airports which might have complicated taxi instructions.

Here’s one I did in simulated navigation mode :-)
