Pity, I was hoping for a display of AGL somewhere.
Hopefully with next update?

I'd really like to see a oil timer. I.e. you have 25 hours on your oil sort of thing. Should be really easily to implement.

Time to update again! For me, I appreciate the continued big fixes even more that new features. I want my system stability and reliability to continually improve.

As for "oil timer", my EMS has this feature but the easiest solution for me is to write my engine time on my oil filter with each change. I see that number with every pre-flight when I check the oil dipstick. (old school)

I wouldn't hold my breath. I asked a G3Xpert about AGL maybe six months ago and this feature was specifically not on their to do list.

Does this update seem stable to you guys? I'm a little gun shy after recent updates broke features and made iPad bluetooth connection unreliable.

I might be missing it, has anyone found a "time to final destination" field for the top databar? I know it has time to the next waypoint, but I've been having to go to the flightplan page to get the time to final destination if I have multiple waypoints.

ETE DEST is a data field option for the Info Page, but does not seem to be available for the Data Bar.
