Kwik EFIS is a Glass Cockpit application designed to work on most Android devices equipped with a GPS, gyroscope, accelerometer and a CPU with reasonable performance.
- Synthetic Vision
Synthetic vision is built from the USGS 3 arc second Digital Elevation Model data. If enabled, it also allows for some terrain collision detection. The required terrain data packages are available on F-Droid, see:
1. North America/Canada Kwik DataPac (usa.can)
2. Southren Africa/Australia Kwik DataPac (zar.aus)
- Flight Director
Kwik EFIS has a fully functional flight director built in. It uses the standard V-Bar symbology common to modern flight directors. The target waypoint and altitude is set on-screen by means of the spinner controls on the right top and bottom of the screen.
- Demo Mode
There is a "Demo Mode" available in the application. It is fairly basic and works like a crude flight simulator. The heading and altitude can be changed by pitching and banking the device. The speed runs up and down automatically based on the pitch.
