Pros and cons of Air Navigation Pro app for iPhone and iPad

Air Navigation Pro app good for

i feel ripped off after paying 37.99 when my friend paid 19.99 last month for the old version and his upgrade was free. why is there no airspace for canada? north east please! i dont have gps in my 172 and airnav with airspace would be awesome. please include this in the next udate
I spent the cash and bought this app to have a back up nav tool where all the maps are stored on my iphones memory. This way I can use the gps to navigate even while my cellular chip is turned off. Therefore allowing me to get accurate direct to courses without using my cell phone data. When navigating on victor airways, this tool allows you to cross referencing your position with the aircraft VOR/DME. A little pricy, but a great great great tool to have in the cockpit!
I am a "weekend warrior" private pilot, licensed in the mid 90s, just getting back into it after a few years off. I actually got my flight review and "re-curency" signed off today! After dloading the App a few days ago, and playing around with it at home thinking it was too good to be true, I flight tested this App today with my instructor and we were both blown away by it! The refresh rate on an iPhone4 was very good! For some one like me, that cant really justify dropping $1000+ on an aviation GPS, this is a perfect solution! I wouldnt necessarily count on it as a primary nav source, as per the "disclaimer", but for a solid back-up to good old chart reading and radio navigation, this is awesome!
Update: METARS and TAFS are now functioning normally! Excellent program! Thanks again. Outstanding wish list: Canadian Elevation database and geo-referenced approach charts. I have used this program for several years and wrote a favourable (5 star) review in June 2010. Since downloading version 4.04 the weather feature (METARS TAFS) has become inoperative. I sent an email 5 days ago via the Support email address but have received no reply. Please address this ASAP. ALSO, please supply Canadian elevation data. Canadian flier
Have personally used this to fly over 3000nm in both Canada and the USA, including flying into the Washington DC SFRA. Its extremely helpful and accurate. I would / have recommended this to many other pilots. Only a couple things missing which I suspect they may add. Airport diagrams. Geo-located would be nice A timer x 5. Ie fuel tank switch, etc click resettable. Auto gps connect, via Bluetooth with iPhone, you now manually do it, no big deal just a nuisance.
I wrote a review on a past update that made the app slower and less responsive. Clearly the developers are listening and the updates since then have made this app better than before. This is a great tool in the cockpit and I recommend it to all my pilot friends. Keep up the great work!

Some bad moments

Excellent application but with the new update, a green line appeared on iPhone while the application is running... Has to be fixed rapidly please!
The software opens , loads the warning screen( do not use as main navigation system , duh! ) and closes. No responses from developer, poor customer service when you pay not only the tablet software but as well the desktop software. I should have read reviews hinting there are bugs and poor customer service. I will turn to other alternatives (and free) I disagree with the posts where bugs have been allegedly corrected, this new version is not working
First - I did my account PUCJS and I have been confirmed it after your e-mail. It was truth because my photo and other informations are there im my profile. Whats the matter? When I am in the Air Nav Pro in my iPhone 6 Plus I cant entry with my credential and password when Im going to Configuration > Air Navigation Services > Account Information > user ID = PUCJS and password. The message from your system is "connection error, retrying". There isnt any error. Second - other day I did one route and it apoears in Configuration > Air Navigation Services > Routes Manager. I have one route "Rio Grande" there. I cant do the upload. Why?
So expensive and they cant even center or differ true to magnetic tracks and headings. Disappointing!
A couple of years ago I bought the Air Navigation Pro and found it an excellent and reliable tool. I even "fell in love" with it when it saved me unnecessary embarassment in a situation where due to external circumstances I ended up unprepared for the short urgent flight I needed make to a controlled airport. The application did everything I needed it to do and did it in a way I could hardly complain. Moving map (commercial - ICAO), extra instruments, comfortable route planning, automatic log, ... everything I needed. A couple of years passed and I returned to flying and - of course - to using the Air Navigation Pro. Now in its latest version, and... I cant recommend it anymore to anyone who flies outside of virtual reality! It became bloated and unreliable to the point that a bad look at the screen can make it crash. It crashes even without looking at it. It crashes when you touch it. It crashes mid-flight and loses the log data, which makes the automatic log rather useless. Gosh! Guys - you had an EXCELLENT application! Now - If you crash your X-plane of FSX when trying to deal with this apps problems thats not much of a deal. But if you crash your Piper/Cessna/whatever you fly in the real world - thats something different. I cant recommend using it in-flight. A real pity. Its been a fantastic tool once. Hey - Xample Sarl - can you give me back the version Ive been using some three years ago?
It would be good except for the fact that the app isnt stable. I keep loosing maps at different zoom levels.
