iFly GPS is full-featured on both the Android and iOS platforms; there are no significant differences in capabilities across these platforms. The app is designed to enhance the flying experience through a comprehensive and intuitive user interface, complete with larger buttons and text.

States Walter Boyd, President of Adventure Pilot: "We've had an incredible response from pilots wishing to beta test our app. We've seen thousands of downloads and have proven success across hundreds of device types. Pilots are telling us they love the charts, the features, the ease of use, and they love how we [Adventure Pilot] listen and respond. Creating a world class navigation app for Android is a critical priority for us, and I believe we have delivered on that goal."

As planned, the iOS, Android and iFly GPS models will share the same look and functionality starting later this Spring, making iFly GPS the first completely universal pilot navigation solution.

iFly GPS for Android delivers the same full-featured moving map navigation found on the iPad version with advanced features like Geo-Referenced Hi-Def Charts, Approach Plates, de-cluttered Vector Mode, AutoTaxi+, RealView and more.
