Garmin has a well-deserved reputation for making the best portable GPSs for pilots. Now many of these same great features are available on your iPhone, iPad and Android devices, with the introduction of the Garmin Pilot aviation app. This comprehensive program includes all digital charts, from sectionals to IFR en route charts to approach plates, plus detailed airport data. In addition, the powerful flight planning page allows you to plan, brief and file flight plans. There’s even Garmin’s famous panel page view of GPS-derived flight instruments. Everything is easy to get to, with Garmin’s cockpit-friendly menu that mirrors current Garmin portables and the GTN line of panel navigators.

App description

Garmin Pilot is a comprehensive suite of tools for the iPhone, iPad and Android, designed specifically for general aviation and corporate pilots. Flight planning, DUAT(S) filing, charts, interactive maps, weather briefing resources and navigation capabilities; it’s all included. The app’s intuitive interface mirrors those on the newest Garmin touchscreen avionics so you can go seamlessly from preflight to inflight. Plan, file, fly with Garmin Pilot.

Plan

Garmin Pilot’s powerful capabilities start with pre-flight planning, providing pilots with the most comprehensive aviation weather information to make better-informed flight decisions. Pilots can check NEXRAD radar, visible and infrared cloud imagery, METARs, TAFs, AIRMETs, SIGMETs, PIREPs, NOTAMs, winds and temperature aloft, PIREPs, TFRs and lightning data. With Garmin Pilot, data can be displayed over a VFR sectional or an IFR low or high en-route chart to visualize the weather for your route. Add text-based weather widgets and use the exclusive NavTrack feature to view weather along the planned route. Long-press any location on the map and the new Radial Menu provides easy access to navigation information, including: airports, navaids, current METARs, direct-to, airspaces, creating a waypoint and allowing for graphical editing of a flight plan.

File

With Garmin Pilot, users can easily enter a flight plan and interactively edit it on the map. Pre-loaded forms make it quick to save and reuse data for frequently flown routes. And when the flight plan is ready, Garmin Pilot makes it simple to file, amend or close the flight plan via DTC DUAT or CSC DUATS. Electronic confirmations from DUAT(S) meet FAA legal briefing requirements.

Fly

Garmin Pilot provides full en-route navigation capability on its moving map, while showing ETE, ETA, crosstrack error, distance to waypoint and current position. Pilots can also navigate with Garmin’s patented panel, a GPS-driven instrument pack with a graphical HSI directional display and indicators for groundspeed, altitude and vertical speed. After takeoff, pilots can continue to view real-time weather information by wirelessly connecting to Garmin’s GDL 39 ADS-B receiver (sold separately). For the ultimate in situational awareness, turn on the incredible synthetic vision display (premium subscription required).

Garmin Pilot App
Difficult to install on Android device. Sporty's customer service folks didn't know how to help. Called Garmin and got good instruction on installation.

product is fine , Customer Service stinks!!!!
First off i have been flying for 73 years so not a student pilot. I have been using the Garmin Pilot for a year and it has worked great, no problems of any kind. Problem is my subscription was running out so got a new one year subscription on 9/16/15. Have not been able to down load it on my Nexus7 . All i get is a message saying my license has expired. Have tried to get them to refund my $80.05 but have never received even an email. Looks like they have my money and i got nothing. Use caution when purchasing any thing from Garmin.

Pros: A decent program once you learn how to use it. Also, with the promotion, ($50) it was pretty affordable. Cons: Takes way to long and you have to go to three separate tabs to plan a flight, program is not as intuitive as Foreflight, and it doesn't have very convenient ways of checking TAFS. Customer Service was great, when I had issues learning to use the product the were extremely helpful, which is worth a lot. This should actually be a part of my product review, because I think we've all had poor customer service experiences and Garmin definitely is good in this area. Thanks!

Please, what is actually included in the standard subscription of usd 75?
A shopper on Jul 3, 2017
Sales says 2 devices / account, but the # I was given only works for one device ?
A shopper on Jul 18, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I have it registered and working on an android phone and an android tablet. I didn't put a number in the app though, I set up a myGarmin dot com account and the app found the subscription via the "Confirm Garmin Account" section of the Settings --> Subscriptions menu in the Garmin Pilot App.
Why would I purchase this through Sporty's rather than just purchase it through the App for the same price?

Can I get a Garmin Pilot renewal via Sporty's? The only online catalog page I can find states 'new subscriptions only'
Steven B on Mar 7, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Renewals are only through Garmin.
Does this app work on an ipad that's not connected to the internet?
Amanda S on Dec 12, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yes, you can download charts for offline use. You will need an ADS-B receiver if you want to receive updated weather information without an internet connection though. That means a GDL 39.
Valid for India?
A shopper on Nov 23, 2016
BEST ANSWER: There is some basic airport information worldwide, and a baseman. But there are no charts or approach plates for India.
