The following screenshots briefly illustrate some of the different screens that you can use while flying with GlassView.


Calling Voyager's GlassView module a moving map would be like calling Michael Jordan a basketball player.  Technically correct but missing the whole point.

We began with a moving map, of course, but then layered on many different types of information you'll find useful - or even invaluable - while flying.  Geo-referenced procedures, wind information, fuel prices, nearest airports, a handy scratchpad, and much more.  All designed from the ground (air?) up for in-flight use so no tiny buttons or right-clicks required.

Not only that, GlassView automatically adapts to all the different screen sizes and configurations out there to give you the optimal layout for your computer.  And, of course, you can quickly change screen configurations and customize it all exactly the way you want.

Wind Optimizer

The Wind Optimizer is an unique feature that will change the way you fly.  Combining data on your current position, heading, and altitude with Winds Aloft forecast, GlassView shows you, graphically and clearly, which altitude has the best tailwind component.  The aircraft heading and winds arrow quickly tell you your current tailwind/headwind situation, and the optimizer graph shows you the benefit or detriment of flying at other altitudes.

Closest Airports

Need an airport to land at now?

The Nearest widget uses your current position to always show your alternates; no need to hit an Emergency button as the info is already on the screen.  Distance and bearing, name, runway length, even weather and, now, fuel prices.

Airport Info

One click shows detailed information about an airport including name, runway lengths, Comm and Nav details, etc.  It even includes fuel prices.  And, with a click, weather and approaches.


GlassView has more than a dozen different screen configurations (layouts) that automatically adapt to the size and orientation (portrait vs. landscape) of your computer. 

Terrain Avoidance

Avoiding terrain requires that you know where the terrain is.  The GlassView TAWS-like terrain clearance feature highlights terrain at or above you in red, and within 1000' as yellow.

Direct To

Flights have been known to change.  When ATC (or your bladder) calls for a course change, the last thing you want to do is fiddle with knobs or enter idents.  Voyager's smart Direct To knows where you are and offers a quick pick of nearby airports and navaids.  Or anywhere already on your flight plan.  No typing necessary.

Ok, but sometimes you really want to change course and need to enter an ident.  For those times, Voyager's Direct To system provides a large, easy to click on-screen keyboard.

GPS Simulator  

Before you actually fly somewhere new, it's sometimes handy to pre-fly it with a simulator.  Voyager now includes a built-in GPS simulator that turns those practice runs into milk runs.  You can also preview flight plans with Google Earth or Microsoft Flight Simulator.


You may have noticed that it's hard to use a keyboard and mouse while flying.  We did too and morph our NavLog into a large and simplified version of itself when you're in the air.

Want to make a change in-flight?  Just a quick click and GlassView pops up an oversized window perfectly designed to foil even the roughest air.


From time to time, ATC tells us to change frequencies or copy a new clearance.  With the new scratchpad widget, you won't miss a single digit.
