Garmin is pleased to announce the addition of new features to the Garmin Pilot application for Apple mobile devices. Just in time for the Spring flying season, Garmin Pilot 9.3 incorporates several new weather enhancements that aid in identifying storm cell movement and icing levels, as well as airspace alerting. With the latest version for iOS, pilots can also view improvements made to the display of traffic, runway extended centrelines and more. When viewing the flight profile view alongside a flight plan, customers can easily view the probability or severity of icing and overall icing potential. The radar overlay on the moving map has been enhanced to include the projected path of a storm cell. An orange circle paired with a line that extends from the strongest storm cells display the potential path of that storm cell and where it’s predicted. Garmin Pilot 9.3 adds airspace alerting to notify pilots prior to entering select airspace segments.
