Garmin just announced a number of new features have been added to the Garmin Pilot app for Apple mobile devices, including support for the Apple Pencil 2 and a variety of gestures. Display and animation of lightning has also been enhanced on the moving map. Documents stored within the document viewer in Garmin Pilot are now synced across all Apple mobile devices running Garmin Pilot. Those folders are now customizable by color and can be reordered in any fashion the user chooses.

Pilots can now invert the colors on Garmin FliteCharts or Jeppesen terminal approach procedures for enhanced readability at night. Selecting night mode will apply when viewing a chart on the map page, in the charts binder, in split-screen view on the synthetic page or while viewing the airport page.

FltPlan.com customers that file in the US, Canada and the Caribbean using the FltPlan.com website or Garmin Pilot, may now print their navigation log or the weight & balance sheet from Garmin Pilot. Garmin Pilot Europe subscribers also have the option to print the IFR auto-routing briefing packet.

Additionally, when the terrain database is downloaded, elevation information can be viewed within the inner circle of the radial menu on the map. Pilots can easily view a new logbook report detailing airports they have visited that also displays a map with pins reflecting those destinations, the date, the flight time logged and more.
