Route Plan - Trip Computer View

Post  Icarus on Sat Jun 15, 2013 11:42 pm

Hi Orux,

A request for you to consider is a Route Plan page on a separate screen (perhaps an additional page to the Trip Computer). The information desired is presented here from a screenshot of an aviation app -




  • The Leg column lists the waypoints.
  • The highlighted blue line indicates the active waypoints (From/To).
  • The Alt column is not required and is something I would get rid of to optimise the screen.
  • Trk indicates the magnetic course between waypoints.
  • Dist can be toggled from the top of the screen to indicate Total cumulative or Leg.
  • Time can be toggled to indicate Interval (ETE) or Estimated Time of Arrival (ETA).

The small icon at the bottom-right (CoPilot) activates a direct link to a flight planning application. An equivalent function would be to have a direct launch of the QRouting application for Android.

Direct access to the screen would be very convenient from a button in the Button Bar. Perhaps you might consider having 5 extra customisable buttons in the Button Bar to go directly to each of the Trip Computer screens (TC1 to TC5, with TC5 being the 'Route Plan' screen)?

Bump....???

An additional feature to this request is a further column on the right-hand side where you can toggle a Clock symbol on and off. The information entered from the Clock symbol is the 'Required Time of Arrival' (RTA).

On a different flight planning application, this looks like this -





When the clock symbol is visible, it means a Required Time of Arrival has been entered against that waypoint. Tap the clock again and it toggles the clock and time data off. Tap the empty field and an input screen opens to select the Required Time of Arrival, whereupon the Clock symbol is visible again.

The Required Time of Arrival is a data field needed to calculate the Groundspeed Required (G/S REQ) for the active waypoint. This is a much needed Dashboard field for aviation users.

A simple comparison of current time versus Required Time of Arrival at the active waypoint (including distance to go) will inform the Groundspeed Required to the active waypoint.

I hope you could consider this functionality in the future.

I think I'll start the flight version in the coming days, all the help is welcome.
