Turn your smartphone or tablet into the ideal cockpit companion. Garmin Pilot puts full-featured navigation, aviation weather, DUAT(S) flight plan filing and electronic flight bag capabilities right at your fingertips.
Plan Your Flight
Garmin Pilot provides instant access to comprehensive U.S. and Canada weather data — including NEXRAD radar, visible and infrared cloud imagery, METARs, TAFs, AIRMETs, SIGMETs, PIREPs, NOTAMs, winds and temperature aloft, PIREPs, TFRs and lightning data — as it becomes available.
View animated NEXRAD radar, check upper-level winds and temperatures and identify cells that might produce lightning. Overlay a wide range of weather options on the map screen to see how cloud cover or precipitation will affect your flight. The exclusive NavTrack feature lets you preview how changing weather conditions might alter your flight. The app also provides fuel prices along your route to help you plan the most economical flight.
File Your Flight Plan
Start by entering your desired route to view it on the map screen. From there, easily overlay weather, pan across the entire route, pinch to zoom for detail, or graphically modify any leg of your flight. The app serves as a legal source of weather briefing.
Built-in calculators estimate fuel burn, enroute legs and arrival times for your flight. Use preloaded forms to save and reuse clearance data for frequently flown flight plans.
When you’re ready, easily file, amend and close the flight plan you create directly from your device via DTC DUAT or CSC DUATS.
Fly with Precision
Using your device’s built-in GPS receiver (or compatible external receiver, sold separately), Garmin Pilot provides full enroute navigation on the moving map display. Our patented Panel Page provides situational awareness, including a graphical HSI directional display and indicators for groundspeed, altitude, rate of turn and vertical speed.
A unique Radial Menu provides easy onscreen access to create a user waypoint or navigate Direct-To, as well as view current weather conditions and airport/navaid information at a glance.
The app also automatically keeps track of your ETE, ETA, crosstrack error, distance to waypoint, current position and more. Optional inflight XM MX Satellite Weather is also available with an optional third-party receiver.
With Garmin Pilot, declutter your cabin and cut down on the amount of paper you need for navigation. A wealth of electronic flight bag capabilities allow you to view paper charts and approach plates right on your device. The app comes with IFR enroute and VFR sectional charts you can select as your basemap, as well as Garmin FliteCharts® and geo-referenced SafeTaxi® diagrams. You can upgrade the standard FliteCharts with geo-referencing capability for dynamic graphical nav guidance from startup to shutdown.
