FlightPanel

FlightPanel


FlightPanel recreates functional airplane cockpit gauges using the phone's built-in GPS, accelerometer, magnetic compass, clock, and battery info.

It's a fun way to show off your phone, especially if you're an aviation enthusiast, but it is not FAA rated nor meant to replace actual avionics. Phone sensors work on completely different principles!

FlightPanel is only as accurate as your phone's sensors. Many of the gauges in FlightPanel require a clear GPS signal to work properly. Slow or noisy GPS updates, magnetic compass calibration issues, etc. are problems or limitations with your PHONE'S HARDWARE, not the APP.

The app works on almost all devices, but there are MANY different hardware devices and some work better than others.

The INOP tags are a new feature which shows gauges that are not (yet) functioning because there is missing or uncalibrated hardware (in the case of the magnetic compass or artificial horizon), or because the GPS is turned off, or has not sent any position data for an extended period of time.

The INOP tags should automatically disappear after calibration or once data arrives from the GPS and the gauges start updating real data. These INOP tags can be hidden via preferences.

Nice Pretty good. Would prefer fear artefacts in the images. Maybe a way to make one sensor full screen or to resize them too?

Needs work In order to make this a useful ap. There needs to be a way to reverse the display so we can use it as a hud. Also a high contrast cyan skin couldn't hurt
