Avare (pronounced "Av Air") is a free moving-map aviation GPS & EFB app.
Note: Internet access is required only for installing the app, an aviation database, and at least 1 chart; then for any updates. We recommend that you TURN OFF AUTOMATIC UPDATE in your Play app, and manually update Avare and then its Downloads.

Avare provides offline moving map on all FAA charts (VFR Sectional, IFR lo/hi enroute, Approach Plate, WAC & TAC); plus A/FD info, Airport Diagrams w/GPS Taxi, and Terminal Procedures. Also included: GPS status, Terrain/Elevation Maps, 50 Nearest airports, Obstacles, and more. Some FAA Charts cover Puerto Rico, plus parts of Canada, Mexico and the Caribbean. All of this is Completely Free with no ads (unless you tap Options/Ads to see our sponsors). Canadian topo moving maps and unofficial airport info are also now available and volunteers may add other countries. If you use and enjoy Avare, your optional donation is requested to support expenses & continued development.

Note: Like all apps for portable devices, Avare is not FAA certified but may be used as outlined in FAA documents. Also see our NOTICE below, and the FAQ on our website for links to FAA documents.

Amazing this complete GPS app is free! GPS on all FAA Sectionals, TACs, WACs, IFR Low, Apr.Plates, even on FAA Airport Diagrams! Plus TFRs, METARs, TAFs, AFDs, & Nearest airports - now even some Canada & world coverage! Frequent updates, improvements, features & refinements. Stellar on my Nexus7, Galaxy S4, & even my Droid X. Works fine on all of these without data in Airplane Mode aloft. Every pilot with any Android device needs Avare. Have flown it many times, including months long transcontinental and international flying trips.

Perfect I tried and saw a few other apps but Avare beats any other app. Not just because it is free. It has all the important features and is extremely easy to use. It just does what it's supposed to do in a perfectly easy and fast way instead of being overloaded with functions never being used.

Perfect I've tried many apps thus far. This app is amazing. Would like weight and balance tool but this all is perfect. Amazing that it is free and ad free.
