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 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:
- Kwik DataPac (usa.can) North America/Canada
- Kwik DataPac (eur.rus) Europe/Russia
- Kwik DataPac (sah.jap) Sahara/Northern Africa/India/Indonesia/Japan
- Kwik DataPac (zar.aus) Southern Africa/Australia
- Kwik DataPac (pan.arg) South America
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.
There is a simulator available in the application. It can be used to practice using the program. When active, the heading and altitude can be changed by pitching and banking the device. The speed runs up and down automatically based on the pitch.
Digital moving Map
Kwik DMAP is a companion application to the EFIS. It provides situational awareness and navigation functionality.
