FlyQ EFB 2.3.3 Released

FlyQ EFB version 2.3.3 was released just now.  It is an important bug fix release that addresses issues with ADS-B stability that were introduced in recent versions of FlyQ EFB. Specifically:
  • FIXED: ADS-B stability problems that might cause the app to crash when updating ADS-B traffic.
  • FIXED: Unnecessary memory usage for ADS-B radar that caused app crashes for some users (especially with older iPads).
  • FIXED: iPad top status bar (clock, battery, etc.) hidden with recent iOS releases.

To upgrade FlyQ EFB:

Upgrades to FlyQ EFB are free.

2. Within the App Store, tap the Updates tab at the bottom.
3. Look for FlyQ EFB and tap the Update button next to it.

  • Bi-direction flight plan transfer with Dynon SkyView
  • GPS and AHRS updates from a connected Dynon SkyView system
  • Support for Microsoft Flight Simulator / Lockheed Martin Prepar3D (X-Plane has been supported for some time)
  • The GPS Alt gauge becomes Pressure Alt when the altitude source supplies pressure altitude (some ADS-B systems).
  • Various bug fixes

  1. I would like to have an automatic aviation publications download and update reference library of the various government aviation publications as provided by Foreflight. This would be of real value to the VFR flyers who may need these publications as they prepare for ratings. Added value for FlyQ .

  2. Hi Steve,

    Has there been any discussion about including tracks (breadcrumbs) as an overlay on the map? I think that would be a useful tool for post-flight review.of training flights or just generally interesting for GA pilots in general.

    Thanks for a great product!

      • Hey Steve, Will the brand new Stratus 2i receiver work with FLY Q efb like the Stratus 2s & 1s. I am considering buying that new Appareo Stratus ESG transponder. If you haven’t tested it yet will you be doing that soon.

        Thanks,

        Paul
