Jeppesen, Garmin Add Terminal Charts To Pilot App


Jeppesen announced this week its terminal charts are now integrated into the Garmin Pilot application for iOS users. The partnership between the two companies has expanded the app’s features such as Jeppesen navigation data to include Jeppesen charts, allowing pilots to fly with geo-referenced approaches and other capabilities within the Garmin app on iPads and other iOS devices. Existing customers who have Garmin Pilot IFR Premium and Jeppesen data subscriptions can now access Jeppesen charts on the app at no additional charge. New customers can begin using the charts on Garmin Pilot by subscribing to Jeppesen charting services, downloading the app to their device and subscribing to Garmin Pilot IFR Premium.

While Garmin Pilot is available on iOS and Android devices, Jeppesen says the chart feature is currently available for iPhone and iPad. “Teaming with our long-standing partner Garmin to provide Jeppesen terminal charts for the Garmin Pilot app marks a new era for the availability of Jeppesen charts,” said Reggie Arsenault, Jeppesen director of general aviation client management. “While we will continue to support Jeppesen Mobile FliteDeck, we view Garmin Pilot as a premier cockpit app and we will work together to deliver innovative charting and flight data capabilities.”
