FlightMap and FlightConnect Versions 1.7 Released to Beta Testers

Posted on Updated on

FlightConnect 1.7.0 Changes:
  1. Added active waypoint name to param list
  2. Added detected server ip address to icon hover info display
  3. Fixed some internationalization issues with number formats when machine is set to use , instead of . for double values
FlightMap 1.7 Changes:
  1. I’ve completely rewritten the networking code. This is a huge change. I did this to improve performance as well as make updating the code easier. I’ve moved a lot of the calculations that were being done on the UI thread into the networking thread. I’ve also optimized the heck out of all of the code. 
  2. Added active waypoint name to the display for gps waypoints. I’ve moved some things around and got rid of the course to steer from the display. I think it follows most GPS’s now.
  3. I’ve added alert dialog boxes that provide more information now when FlightMap is unable to connect to FlightConnect.
  4. I’ve really tried to get the compass rose to be visible on all of the display types. I’ve doubled the contrast on the non-satellite views and I’ve gone with a different colored compass rose for the satellite views. I think this really helps but please let me know what you all think!!!
  5. Added 2 more commercial jets and a cessna 208 to the follow me plane selection
