New Voyager 4.0 is now available

Voyager 4 is a huge step forward in the development of Voyager. It is faster (much faster!), which results in better performance and also the ability to quickly "play" with different features, accelerating the learning process.  Because 4.0 utilizes a totally different charting engine from 3.6, you must download a new copy of Voyager (that is, Voyager will not automatically update as is usual.) The email you will receive will contain the download links plus a description of the changes. Please read it carefully, perhaps while downloading the new software. It will save you some time and confusion while using 4.0. /p>

Voyager 4.0 Summary:

SPEED So what's the big deal?  Well, it can be summed up in one word: SPEED.  As you may have noticed, Voyager's strongest suit wasn't its chart drawing speed, so we rewrote the charting engine from the ground up.  This time we could take advantage of the same technology that powers Google Earth and Microsoft Flight Simulator, something called Microsoft DirectX.  In essence, it means we take all the aviation data, terrain data and the like and put it into a virtual 3D model that mirrors the Earth.  Thanks to DirectX, all the heavy lifting of actually drawing the Chart is then handled by your machine's video card at blinding speed.

The result is spectacular and essentially means real-time drawing.  For example, in places that the old charting engine might take five seconds to draw a chart, the new drawing engine draws in about 1/5 of a second or less.  That is, very conservatively, the new engine is about 100 times faster, better if you have a good video card.  This speed makes a night and day difference in using Voyager.  Zooms and pans are now silky smooth and GlassView GPS position updates are now every second rather than every five seconds (in fact, the charting engine can do much better than once per second, but most GPS units only update that fast). 

SCANNED CHARTS You asked for it; now you have it. Scanned, original, current Sectional, High and Low Enroute, TAC, and WACs can now be used as layers on any Voyager chart screen. And just like our "vector charts", this means you can create your flight plan over any scanned chart, click on an airport (for example) and get airport data, and overlay weather; clouds, radar, Metars and TAFs. Switch to GlassView moving map, and now you have your current position shown on top of a scanned chart.  Everything you could do before, you can now do on the new scanned charts!

3-D Not just for Disney movies anymore! You can now turn, tilt, zoom, and rotate charts in all three dimensions!  "Pre-flight" your route to visualize your actual flight path.  View terrain around an airport to better understand your actual approach.  And all incredibly fast!

Please note that current customers who own verison 3.6 must have a current ChartData subscription to upgrade to version 4.  Not yet a customer, or not current? You may purchase Voyager and ChartData Subscriptions here.

What some of our customers have to say about...

I have the SkyPad and LOVE IT!

I have been on the sidelines regarding EFBs....always waiting for the perfect unit. While at Oshkosh this year, I had the opportunity to try FlightPrep's ChartCase and Seattle Avionics SkyPad. Both units are well thought out and will likely serve you well. I thought the SkyPad had the upper is why. -- Doug W Read the whole post...

"Thanks for the quick response! I love Voyager! I think I've owned every piece of flight planning software that ever came out, but have never been fully satisfied until I installed Voyager last week. And apparently tech support is as good as the software. I will recommend Voyager to my flight studunts." H.W. - CFII
"The software is awesome. I have used Aeroplanner, FlightPrep, and Flightsoft in the past. Voyager is by far the best. Keep up the good work!" Mike
"Just wanted to let you folks know I am really enjoying your software. I think it is great and very simple to use." Richard
"Thank you. I am sending a message of great praise about you and your company to all of my aviating friends. I am very pleased to see that you do in fact listen and respond to what your customers need or want." Matt
