SkyDemon for iPad 2.3.4 is back in the App Store where it belongs. Here's a list of the new stuff in this build.
The DI instrument can now be dragged out to produce the HSI/ILS instrument, or collapsed to produce the course correction indicator
Airspace boundaries are now intelligently merged so only the extremities of controlled and dangerous airspace are highlighted
Analysis virtual radar is now enabled, for vertical inspection of track logs
User waypoints can now be imported in bulk to SkyDemon for iPad using iTunes file sharing
Aircraft definitions not in the aircraft library can now easily be added to the library when editing
Aircraft definitions are now stored in the Documents folder for easier sharing with desktop computers running SkyDemon
NOTAM are now saved permanently in case of application restart without internet connection

Full marks to Tim and team for fixing the problem and getting the update approved by Apple in 24 hours.
Great product and a great team supporting it.
I flew today and love the new HSI as well as vertical breadcrumb tracklog feature
Well done - amazingly quick bug fix - great service on a truly great product! Tiny little thing I noticed on mine - playing with the simulator mode and the new HSI (which is great by the way!) - when playing with a previously saved route the course deviation indicator on the HSI works fine. When using a route that I've just created to use but not yet saved the CDI does not indicate correctly. Anyone else get this?? (Dunno if this would be the same in real navigation mode rather than the sim - not tried it yet!)
The updated version looks great. All yesterday's problems fixed. Love the HSI.
Who knows how to get the userwaypoints in? Copying them onto the iPad via iTunes is straightforward and the userwaypoints.XML file appears on the iPad. However, when I start Skydemon on the iPad it seems to delete the file and I don't see the waypoints I had on the PC. Please can someone tell me what I'm doing wrong? Thanks.
It may not be immediately obvious that the HSI/ILS can be resized by pinching. Also, to enable glideslope, you need to go into Setup/Navigation Options.
The ILS function is very nifty if used with caution. My fear is that it will be used by some without enough caution. I guess the same can be said for any tool.
