    3D Preview in ForeFlight displays markers for each waypoint in your route, including labeled approach fixes, allowing you to better visualize every step of your approach all the way down to the runway. 3D Preview is available with ForeFlight Performance plans.

    3D Review

    3D Review is a flight planning and debriefing capability that allows you to review planned and recorded flights with immersive 3D terrain and aerial imagery. Prepare for an upcoming flight by familiarizing yourself with landmarks and ground features along your planned route, and replay a past flight with pitch and bank data (if your Track Log is recorded with an AHRS capable device) to evaluate your maneuvers. 3D Review is available in ForeFlight Performance plans.

    Basemap and Terrain Improvements

    The ForeFlight map engine has a significantly upgraded basemap, which now renders more quickly, smoothly, and with sharper depiction of features such as major roads, railways, national parks, and state and national boundaries. There’s also a new “Shaded Terrain” option, which uses grayscale shading to depict terrain, providing the same level of detail as the colored terrain option with less visual distraction.

    In the Map Settings menu, choose from multiple presentations: Colored, Shaded, or None.

    High Resolution Basemap

    ForeFlight’s High Resolution Basemap depicts ground features and cultural elements in much greater detail for improved inflight reference. The default basemap provides a basic depiction of major roads and urban areas, while the High Resolution Basemap dramatically increases the level of detail, exposing minor roads and individual railway lines, increasing the resolution of coastlines and urban areas, and highlighting national parks and forests in green. The High Resolution Basemap also adds terrain peak markers with altitudes so you can easily identify the highest points in an area. You can disable these within Terrain settings in the Map Settings menu.
