WingX Version 3.0 For iPhone Now Available
The glass cockpit has come to your pocket. Hilton Software LLC
today announced “WingX for iPhone” Version 3.0 with
GPS-Enabled Terrain-Aware Moving Map. WingX’s touchscreen
integration reduces heads-down time while enabling smooth scrolling
across the contiguous US, Mexico, Puerto Rico, and Bahamas.
WingX’s Moving Map has one-touch access to the A/FD, AOPA
Directory, and NACO Approach Charts and Airport Diagrams. “We
are very excited to add GPS-Enabled Moving Map to WingX for iPhone.
WingX now enables pilots to carry just one device for their moving
map, DUATS, weather text and images, A/FD, AOPA Directory, and all
NACO approach charts and airport diagram in the US. Modifying the
route, obtaining A/FD or AOPA Directory information or viewing an
approach chart is initiated by one tap on the identifier. No knob
twiddling or complicated instructions. WingX for iPhone Version 3.0
is also faster, uses less memory, adds TFR images, AF/D information
for Puerto Rico and the Bahamas, and adds aircraft lookup. All this
for under $100.” said Dr. Hilton Goldstein, company founder
WingX for iPhone runs on iPhone, iPhone
3G, iPhone 3GS, and iPod Touch. WingX for iPhone Version 3.0
requires iPhone OS 3.0 (or later).
The iPhone application is available for download from the Apple
App Store. BlackBerry and Windows Mobile versions can be found at
the Hilton Software website.
