App Description

Navigation as it used to be!  

Simulate a VHF Omni Receiver with modern GPS on your phone or Apple Watch! Classic OBS-CDI display or HSI (Horizontal Situation Indicator). App contains a World-Wide database of ALL VORs, TACANs, VORTACS, DMEs, as well as all NDBs and medium and large sized Airports. That's 4268 VOR-type stations, 6857 NDBs and 4831 Airports. Almost 16,000 Nav Aids in total. There is no line of sight limit - You can navigate Direct to any station from anywhere! VOR Navigator also give you a DME readout to any selected Nav Aid and on the phone, a Closure rate. Great fun as a passenger too!

The iOS app also gives you an ADF (Automatic Direction Finder) instrument with lightning mode! Enjoy the "Dark and Stormy Night" frustrations of the old-timers who once had to rely on ADF.

This App runs independently on both the iPhone (or iPad) and on a Series 2 and later Apple Watch! Both Apps are bundled together for a single purchase price.

You must enable GPS location access on the paired iPhone before the Watch App will work. Enable GPS by running the App on your paired iPhone and granting GPS permission. After enabling the GPS, the watch and the iPhone versions of VOR Navigator will work completely independently.

Save favorite waypoints by tapping the heart icon in iOS, remove a favorite by tapping the filled heart icon. In watchOS, favorites are also selected with the heart icon.

On the watch app, after entering a waypoint in the station picker, remember to select the station at the bottom of the screen before swiping back to Navigation.
