IMAC Lite for Apple devices updated once again

IMAC Lite for Apple devices has been updated to include a tool for tracking Peter Goldsmiths trim chart, a tracking tool for your location which will soon allow you to place your device in your plane and track it's course through the sky.

The most recent update was just submitted to Apple for review and I expect it to be in the store bt the end of this week. This updated also includes a map for every flying field location in the world and I am current working to have it searchable and the 2013 Basic through Intermediate sequences which are also included in Caller Mode and the Writtens

There is quite a bit more added that does not have to do with IMAC itself. I am slowly moving it into an app designed for all types of flying. I'm just trying to decide to create a whole new app or not so this is subject to change

Also, the logbook is almost complete, the database is built, it is being tested and changed weekly, if not more. It covers all types of planes and power systems

If you already do not have this app, you can find it in the Apple app store by searching for IMAC Lite

Any idea if you'll make one for Pattern/F3A sequences?

Happy Landings

Actually, about a year ago, someone asked me this question so I put out several requests for help gathering information and I did not get a single response. So if you or someone is willing to do some work gathering info, I'd be happy to

Anything and everything that is pertinent to it, web site location for information, sequences locations, you name it

Basically image what you would want to have with you at a contest or doing practice and that is what I need

If forums exist, then tell me where to find them, beyond FG so I can go read them

For F3A the best forum it the RCU pattern forum
Also here are the links to the NSRCA/AMA sequenses maneuver description and the Arestis
Sportsman Maneuver description, Aresti
Intermediate Maneuver description, Aresti
Advance Maneuver description, Aresti
Masters Maneuver description & Aresti

For the FAI sequence there are two, P13 and F13 Here are links to both
P13 Call sheet, Aresti
F13 Call sheet, Aresti

All this information can be found at the NSRCA.us website. Also Notice that for Advance and Masters the links are for the sequences coming into effect in 2013 instead of the current ones.

Let me know if this is what you need.

Happy Landings

Looks liie a good start, I'll check it out as time allows this week, prolly mostly evenings as we are undergoing 17025 re-certification at work and I'm the person that deals with it all

This should not be too hard, I can use the templates I already have for the coding

I just downloaded the APP. Nicely done from what I see so far. I also very much enjoyed seeing that the Aresti Dictionary I wrote so long ago is still getting some good use. I should update it sometime to include the new nomenclature and changes to some of the base figures. But even as it is it still works fairly well.

An app that includes pattern would be very cool. I'd be happy to help out as well. The pattern rules are on the AMA website.

Judge,

I'll take all the help I can get.

Why don't you and g_mkoch send me an email so that we can take this off-line and not tie up the forums. There will be a bit of question/answer sessions I would need to do

If anyone else wants to get involved, just sned me an email as well

Suggestion/request

When you find a rc field on the locator and you tap it to see its name, can you add a option to move this location directly into the maps app for navigational uses the newest iPhone software update included?

Also a search function for something like a city name or even a club name.

Both ideas are already in the next release
