Hi,

the OFM Maps are updated according the Airac Cycle, Current version is 1705 for Austria - in Flightassistant the version seem not to be updated - is it possible to update them manually,

best regards,

Dominik

Hi Dominik,
the update of OFM maps was indeed delayed.

They are now up to date on our servers.

Depending when you last tried, the update might appear today or tomorrow on your device.

Thank you very much, still there is the issue of the map drawing - I think it´s discussed in the community support as well as maps section. Is there any chance of getting this resolved?
cheers, Dominik

Hi Dominik,
as I was saying there, performance will always suffer on "oldish" hardware.
This stated we are publishing a new release today which might improve things.

You need to make sure as well that you disable all other maps (including vectors) when using a raster map.
It might help.

Thanks for your reply - looking forward to the update. The odd thing is that maps worked very smooth with the old flightassistant version and have been just perfect for flying. I think the most important thing is reliability and accuracy for this kind of software - it should not take over all duties of the pilot, just support him,
thx, Dominik
