Plan your flight route and easily share it with friends
View and create routes
You can access your routes from the Profile page in Gaggle. By tapping the All Routes link Gaggle you can see all the routes you've created or that was shared with you and you will also find a button to create a new route.
When you create a new route you have give it a name and you can also choose what type of route it should be. Gaggle currently has 2 types of routes that you can create:
Once you've given the route a name and you've chosen the type of route you want to create you can then plan the route.
Planning a new route
You can plan your route by adding waypoints to the route. To place a waypoint you can move the map until the Waypoint indicator is centered on the position you want. If you are happy with the position you can tap the "+" button to create a new waypoint at the specified location on the map. Continue to place waypoints at specific positions by moving the map and tapping the "+" button.
Gaggle will always place the waypoint as the next one based on the currently focused waypoint. The Waypoint that is currently focused is shown at the bottom of the screen and Gaggle will draw a dotted line as a visual guide to show how the route will change.
Reversing the route: You can choose to fly a route in reverse once you start flying and reversing a route in the planning stage is not needed.
Tip: If you have Airspaces installed then airspaces will also show up while planning your route.
Change waypoint settings
Once you've placed a waypoint you can change the settings for the waypoint. The following can be set for each waypoint:
Name: You can change the name of a waypoint by tapping on the name and then editing it.
Radius: The radius of the waypoint. Once you change the radius for a waypoint Gaggle remembers the setting and uses the same radius for future waypoints that you create.
Audio Cue: You can set a custom audio cue that will play when you reach the waypoint. This is useful if you want some waypoints to remind you about things along your route like changing to a specific radio frequency or to look at landmark.
Reached On: What behaviour Gaggle should use to determine if the waypoint was reached and if the next waypoint should become the new navigation target. Waypoints can be reached on:
