This is amazing. Surely it will affect lots of corporate users, or are they just moving them to Foreflight?
I wonder what will happen to the PC products, which are still running despite Jepp talking about “sunsetting” (the current fashionable corporate-BS phrase) them for years.
All these products use the same database – literally the same data files – as people who jailbroke their Ipads and looked around the file system found out. There was just one file which differed between say Jeppview/PC and JeppTC or JeppFD. No idea about FF but I bet there is a directory there called TerminalCharts or some such also, with the same files dumped in there. So Jepp gain nothing by phasing something out. Each cycle they are still generating the same data.
I find it unbelievable.
What an arrogant way of selling a product.
I may post with more precision later, but I have some difficulties displaying charts on a legacy G1000 MFD (since beginning 2021)
THey have determined that the load of NOTAMs in each cycle prevents good functioning. Basically they say it is not their problem, and I find myself with a certified product (garmin Chartview) which is not really compatible anymore with the content (Jeppesen chart).
See here. This affects Jepp customers that are not using (or not willing to use) ForeFlight or Garmin Pilot to display their terminal charts.
“I told you so!” (c). What else would you expect from them?
And another moment – ForeFlight exists only on Apple, as well as the Garmin Pilot (well, there is a version for Android but appraently it does not display Jepps).
Basically they say it is not their problem, and I find myself with a certified product (garmin Chartview) which is not really compatible anymore with the content (Jeppesen chart).
And Garmin won’t do anything about it because they are focused on selling NXi and don’t give a sh.t about legacy G1000.
This will most likely finish me as a Jepp customer. Jepp did offer me a month’s free trial of Foreflight with all the charts. I’ll try it, but…
My opinion only:
There is no reason to use Jepp charts at all.
Since we have AIP charts available for free – I use those without any problems in IFR.
Few k eur saved already.
What a disgrace ! I’ll stop paying for my subscription unless they integrate with Skydemon.
Good luck with that, for multiple reasons already very well aired
For a start, SD would need to abandon the Android version – there is every indication that Jepp do not allow licensing on such.
Navigraph charts saved to your device which have been carefully cross checked with AIP plates before departure?
