Moving Map Survey
A survey to help understand why some pilots use moving maps and why some don't
We have split the questions into sections on pre-flight planning and in-flight navigation and kept the survey as short as possible. We are equally interested in views from pilots who do not currently use a moving map and those who do.
There's a chance at the end to add any general views or comments that you feel have not been covered by the questions.
For the purpose of this survey a moving map means either a device or software for use on a device on which a flight may be planned or which can be used for in-flight VFR navigation, or both. These generally fall into three categories:
- A panel mounted navigation device. However, many panel mounted IFR navigation/communication systems built into the aircraft may be considered as out of scope of this survey because, although capable of giving some graphical representation of the aircraft’s position, these units are not intended for VFR flight.
- Portable devices designed for VFR flight use such as the Garmin 296 and Garmin Aera range.
- Software for use on a phone or tablet such as SkyDemon, EasyVFR and RunwayHD.
