Air Nav Pro on Nexus 7

Postby ozplane » Thu Dec 27, 2012 4:18 pm

A Google Nexus 7 has arrived in the family and once I've prized it out of the hands of the ankle-biters I might get a go on it. I'm aware of the SD/iPAD fan club on this forum but I wondered if anybody had any experience of Air Nav Pro on this unit? I would only want it to replace my original Aware unit and use it for situational awareness. Or would Memory Map be better?

After having used ANP on the iPad I found that the android version wasn't as slick. However, being able to run it on a cheap tablet which is small almost makes up for the shortcomings. No doubting upgrade which is well due on Android will improve it. As for MM it is also good for situational awareness but I prefer ANP for the added bells and whistles

What other prime purpose would a GPS device serve apart from situational awareness?

Thanks gozap. Your comment about an update for Android seems to be consistent with users views on the web-site. FBM, what I was trying to imply was that I don't really want or need route-planning, weather and the rest from my GPS device as it is only for replacing the Aware which doesn't give this data anyway.

I find it offensive that you believe people are not capable of free thought. Would you care to elaborate on how you feel people are 'encouraged' to promote SD?

Quite possibly sent from my Nexus 7 which cost 400 quid less than your iPad.

I'm feeling offended on behalf of others :lol:

Still curious as to what Mono's conspiracy theory is though...

Please don't feel offended on my behalf Steve. I have the ability to do so myself.

If, and I do say if, Sky Demon bring out there excellent software for Android. I will be among the first in the queue. Until then I am happy using the equipment I am currently using. Nothing against ios at all. Just far to expensive for the use I would get out of it.

I do hope my grammar and syntax is wrong, to allow further outrage from dedicated followers of the English language.

Given that you're not currently using SD, you're unlikely to be offended by the suggestion that all who do have been brainwashed!

Breaking with tradition I'd like to head back on topic and say I want a 7" kneeboard Android tablet on which I can depict VFR charts. I've no room for paper charts or a GPS.

I fancy giving this a go - is there *any* point in me trying to run it on my 3.5" phone?
