AnywhereMap for iPad and Android, FINALLY!

Category: RamblingsDaniel @ 10:31 am

Just a few short years ago (pre iPhone and iPad days), the handheld General Aviation GPS unit market was booming.  It was RIGHT when I was earning my private pilot’s license and I was DYING to have one.  I remember seeing ads for Control Vision’s AnywhereMap software and system, it looked like the coolest thing ever, and a heck of a lot cheaper than Garmin units.  Of course, I still couldn’t drop about $795 (I think that’s what it cost back in the day) to support my occasional flying.  Well, maybe that situation has now changed!  Control Vision has released iOS and Android versions of their AnywhereMap moving map software package, and it’s under $100!  (Actually, it’s $79.95 at the time of this post, April 1st, 2012).  Granted, I’m very happy with my sub-$20 SkyCharts Pro app still, but I’m seriously considering plunking down a few bucks for this one.  If anyone has used this package, what do you think?  If you want to check it out yourself, here’s a link to the iTunes store!
