Apple has approved FlyQ EFB 2.1 so it’s now available from the App Store. To update, go to the App Store on your iPad and take a look at the Updates tab. You should see FlyQ EFB 2.1 as either an Available Update or, if your iPad is set to automatically update apps (which we recommend), as an app recently updated. Remember that app updates are always free but the app won’t run if your subscription has expired (click here to renew).
If you’ve never installed FlyQ EFB, you can download it by opening the App Store on your iPad and searching for FlyQ EFB. If you’re reading this on your iPad, you can also click here to download it.
Confirm you’re using FlyQ EFB 2.1 by starting FlyQ EFB, tapping the Settings button (gear icon) at the top of the app, and looking for the version number at the top-right corner of the page. If you see “2.1”, you’re good to go.
FlyQ EFB 2.1 is compatible with iOS 9 so it’s now safe to install iOS 9.0 or the even newer 9.0.1.
Version 2.1 adds compatibility for iOS 9 and fixes bugs found in the initial version 2.0 release. This includes the most common crashing bugs and the non-crashing bugs we mentioned in the September Newsletter. Those are:
- Fixed: Cannot change gauges or set a timer in the Gauge Bar in the Procedures tab.
- Fixed: The Map Tool bar may fade-out and not return if you’ve recently toggled the Gauges and the Map Tool bar is set to autohide. This is most commonly seen in the 3D synthetic vision view.
- Fixed: TAWS hides map tiles for areas off the Eastern and Western coasts.
Some additional fixes were also made:
- Lockheed Martin now listed as a weather provider alongside DUATS. All references to DUAT have been removed.
- Fixed: Clicking a Web link to an FBO does not work.
- Fixed: Turning off the High resolution terrain does not “stick” in the ChartData Manager if the switch was swiped rather than clicked.
- Fixed: A SkyRadar ADS-B system causes the ADS-B Battery indicator to flash red rather than remain clear (the SkyRadar has no battery).
- Fixed: Terrain X-Ray may report the wrong headings if the map is rotated.
We’ve also removed almost all of our old training videos and replaced them with new videos specifically designed for version 2.0. The new videos are more informative and easier to follow yet still concise.
