  • FIXED: Startup crashes on faster iPads (iPad Pro, iPad Air 2)
  • FIXED: Fuel prices on the map not colored correctly

  • FIXED: Dynon ADS-B radar not correct in some cases
  • FIXED: Send to Dynon/Receive from Dynon not visible under iOS 10

To upgrade FlyQ EFB:

Upgrades to FlyQ EFB are free.

If you’re reading this on your iPad, just click below (won’t work on a PC or Mac):

https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/flyq-efb/id915571252?mt=8

If you’re reading this on a PC or Mac, go to your iPad then:

1. Open the App Store app on your iPad (usually on the first Home page).
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.

Tip: You can have the iPad automatically do updates for all apps in the future. This saves a lot of time!  To do that:

1. Go to the Settings app on the iPad
2. Tap the iTunes & App Store item on the left side of the screen (might need to scroll down to see it).
3. Turn the switch next to Updates to ON (green).

Note: Turning on automatic updates does not automatically install new OS releases, just apps like FlyQ EFB.

And, as a reminder of what was new in 2.4:

  • ADDED: Document Management. The all-new Documents tab gives you immediate access to a library of more than 200 FAA publications and charts (Flyway charts, helicopter charts, etc.), weather documents, Seattle Avionics documents, legends, and more. Or easily add your own documents by entering a URL or emailing them to your iPad. Even tap to add photos already on your iPad.
  • ADDED: Support for Avidyne IFD540 and IFD440 wireless data transfer (GPS, AHRS, bi-directional flight plan transfers). Avidyne software release 10.2 required (GPS works with 10.1). More Avidyne support to come.
  • ADDED: Support for ADS-B weather and traffic from the Dynon SkyView. SkyView software release 15 required (GPS, AHRS, bi-directional flight plan transfers already available with SkyView 14).
  • FIXED: An unusual server error state can cause the app to logout and not allow users to log back in.
  • FIXED: Detailed device status information not immediately updated
  • FIXED: NavLog printing results in a clipped document.
  • FIXED: Edits to the FAA Plan form not submitted to Lockheed/DUATS in some cases.
  • FIXED: A few airports with fuel prices do not show the price on the map.
  • FIXED: Takeoff time cannot be set when creating a new flight plan.
  • FIXED: Downloads for Michigan do not include some of the state.
  • FIXED: Last-selected pilot not remembered in New Plan.
  • FIXED: Play/Pause button in sim too small on Retina iPad.
  • FIXED: Editing a flight plan can produce a negative MHdg.
  • FIXED: Tapping the Done button in the ChartData Manager takes so long to respond that it’s often tapped twice.

    • Hi Jim,

      We’re talking to Garmin but the best bet is for you, as a customer (or potential) Garmin customer to tell them you need them to support FlyQ EFB. We support 20+ different ADS-B and panel-mounted systems (like Avidyne, Dynon, and Aspen) so would add Garmin if they allowed it.

      Thanks, Steve

  2. Hi, I have installed 2.4.3 and in the documents area, a document labeled 2016-9-20 is blank. No content. Am I missing something?

    Thanks, Mark Schilling

    • Hi Vince,

      Yes. We recently added the Bahamas and are working on Mexico now. We also have had EU data for years but not for FlyQ EFB yet (we have it for Aspen and Bendix-King now). Working on Canada but it’s hard because Nav Canada is not a government entity like the FAA in the US so they have a very different notion about what their data is worth than any other aviation entity in the world.

      Thanks, Steve

  3. I just installed on iPad Air2 and have some issues: 1. 3d only renders a horizontal band of terrain in the center of the page, and does not load all of the terrain for the entire page. 2. Seems a lot of times when I select 3D using the button on the left, the app quits and I have to restart. 3. Not seeing fuel prices for a lot of the airports I buy fuel from (e.g., KAJO – Corona, KCNO – Chino, etc.). I do see these fuel prices when I use Foreflight.

    • Hi Doug.

      To see 3D, you have to actually be flying or using the built-in sim or using MS Flt Sim or using X-Plane; it’s not designed to work while stationary on the ground.

      Fuel is $3.90 at CNO, updated yesterday, according to the app when look at the details page for it. I see it on the map in FlyQ Online but you’re right not on the map. Odd and we’ll look into it.

      For tech support, please email support@seattleavionics.com. We don’t generally do support via the blog.

  4. This program is awesome enough that i bought a lifetime subscription.
    Quick one, adding PDFs by web sometimes results in a “Document not yet loaded” even though it appears OK in the browser.
    Any ideas?

    Keep up the good work.
