Paragliding Map for your Android phone.
Paragliding Map is now available as an Android app from the Android Marketplace.
Now you can experience all the information of Paragliding Map in the palm of your hand... plus a little extra!
Paragliding Map for Android has some cool features that are not even available on the website yet.
* Features marked with asterisks are available in the PRO version.
Once you find a site you want to fly, you can use Google GPS navigation to drive to the takeoff.
Show your location on the map as a blue icon in real time. This feature is useful if you are walking a forest
trail to a takeoff and need to ensure you are walking in the correct direction!
The app search feature is much more powerful than the one on this website, because you can search by:
- Exact site name.
- Partial site name. Eg: "inter" will find "Interlaken", but also "Mürren" because it is close to Interlaken.
- Region. Eg: "alsace" will return all sites in the Alsace region of France.
- Special characters are ignored. Eg: "murren" will find Mürren.
The usual site details are displayed, such as acceptable wind direction, current wind direction, gust strength,
cloud condition, etc.
3-day "flyability forecast"
The 3-day flyability forecast is displayed as "happy" and "sad" icons as on the website.
Where available, up to 3 webcams are displayed for each site. This is especially useful to check actual conditions
match the reported conditions. Often you can even check if other pilots are already in the air!
FREE vs PRO
There are two versions of the Paragliding Map app for Android:
- FREE: Ad-supported with some features disabled.
- PRO: Costs €3.99, but contains no advertising and all features are unlocked.
Neither version is time-limited, and you can continue to use both versions indefinitely. If you
choose to upgrade from FREE to PRO, you can simply do this from the Android Marketplace. If you
decide not to upgrade, you are welcome to keep the FREE version installed on your phone.
