FlightMap 2.5 Released

Posted on Updated on

Version 2.5 includes the following updates

  • Added aircraft altitude, direction, and airspeed overlay for layouts that don’t have the visual gauges
  • Updates to the server discovery code so that it is more reliable.
  • Performance improvements and bug fixes


In the Nexus 7 screenshot above there is now an overlay for current aircraft flight information. I am still working to figure out a way to add the gauges to the screen but there is not a lot of room. The main functionality of FlightMap is the navigation aspects so I don’t want to dumb down that feature for some eye candy.


The 10 inch version has had a few improvements for performance as well. The direction indicator has been updated so that it matches well with the other gauges. There has been more improvements to the automatic server detection as well.

FlightMap 2.5 is now released to the play store and should be available on all tablets in the next 24 hours.
