Hotairballoon navigation, iNavHotair for iOS

By Henri van Bommel $2.99

Developer's Description

This app will assist you, as a hotairballoon pilot, to navigate your hotairballoon by helping to find the best wind. It does this by capturing heading and speed at all altitudes, while you fly, and remembers them. After this the tool can provide the information you need to choose the altitude for best heading or speed. Bounds where you are interested in, for example 500 to 1500 feet, can be set and you can request the best heading or speed for the selected range. The information available:- altitude of lowest heading- altitude of highest heading- altitude of lowest speed- altitude of highest speed- actual heading at a selected altitude- actual speed at a selected altitude- real time clock- elapsed time since start button was pressed- upper and lower altitude bounds can be selected- speed can displayed in kilometres per hour or knots (tap on it to switch units)- altitude can be displayed in feet or meters (tap on it to switch units)- heading in true degreesLEFT and RIGHT pickers:By using the most left or right picker you select the altitude range you are interested in. A white RANGE button indicates that the range you selected is in use. When this button has a blue colour the range is set to its default settings. Data collection is not influenced by these pickers. CENTRE picker.With the centre picker you select a specific altitude for what you need to know the heading and speed for. It works in combination with the range segmented switch. In case the range is for example set to 100 and the centre picker is set to 1000 feet the app will return the average heading and speed between 950 and 1050 feet. In case you select a range of 1 you can scroll to all captured heights and show results.Running in the background:The app can run in the background. By enabling this feature you allow the app to capture flight data while the screen is off. This to minimise batterie power consumption. When your device detects no movement or receives no GPS data for 15 minutes, while running the app in the background, it will disable the GPS location updates and therefore saves batterie power. This case is indicated by a red "START" button. You allow running in background using the "BG-ON/BG-OFF" switch.Notes:To make the app work you must allow location services to allow the app to capture movement data. The app is not using the network so it is just fine to disable it. All captured data remains locally on your device. When pressing the "START" button the app will empty its list of captured data and then start capturing new data. The continue button keeps the existing data when restarting the app. The "RUNNING" indicator on the right-top button indicates the app is collecting data.Remarks:Use this app at you own risk. Always follow official navigation regulations. The app will increase battery consumption of your device as the GPS is constantly turned on while it is running.
