Here's another good app, guys, especially for you pilots who carry your iPhone with you on a flight, or just want info on the airport:

http://wh83.fltplan.com/iPhone.htm

It's a free app, and is available at the App store. From their description:

Quote
FltPlan.com's Flt Deck Airport/FBO Info Guide includes:

  • Airport and City Names
  • Fuel Availability
  • Time Zone info
  • AOE info
  • Frequencies for Tower, Ground, Clearance Delivery
  • ATIS and AWOS frequencies
  • FBO Names, Phone numbers, and frequencies
  • longest runway length
  • All approach and lighting information for runways at an airport.
  • Airport and FBO location diagram (where available).
  • Quick links to other nearby airports with direction and distance.
  • Quick links to Nearby Alternate airports.

Updated weekly, It's free, no WiFi/Internet access needed, and has all the airports for the US, Canada, Mexico and the Bahamas (for when you want to get out to Nassau for that MaiTai you've been craving! Wink )

I've tried it, and it looks good. Oh.. Did I mention it's free? Smiley

Enjoy.

EDIT: I just also noticed that it contains the numbers for all major US/Canadian airlines. Also, it's free! Tongue

I know there has been some mention that people around here are using unhacked iphones..

But for those of us in other countries that just couldnt wait for the iphone 3g to come we have had to rely on unlocking/jailbreaking our phones so we could use them...

If anybody has an older 2G model and they would like to learn how to unlock/jailbreak it so they can upgrade from 1.1.4 to 2.0.x versions send me a pm. 

I wont post the info here in case that goes against forum rules and I also dont want to hijack a thread.

But I am in Canada with an iPhone 2G and have successfully re-unlocked/jailbroken it and upgraded from 1.1.4 to 2.0.2 (currently) so that I can have access to the app store.

One more app coming on the way, and I think it looks promising...

Im only putting this out there for information purposes but a lot of the apps in the apps store have now been hacked. 

I believe in getting paid for your work but this might be a good way to try out the apps before you pay the money.

Tuner has been hacked and I have it up and running on my iPhone.  I wanted to test for a bit to see how much bandwidth I would use on 2g edge before I bought the app.

Looks good so Ill buy it from the apps store and support the developer!

And if you are a pilot iPhone user, check this out:

http://www.ljd-tech.com/copilot

CoPilot has been out on the Palm platform for some time and I have been a very happy customer of this handy tool.
No other connection with CoPilot.

thanks for that dave!  im definitely going to pick that up.

I have a question for you though on Tuner.  the network usage stats on my iphone dont keep accurate records.  How much data are we talking an hour? per minute? sent/received? 

2g iphone on edge!

16kb/sec x 3600 sec/hour = 57,600 kb/hour x byte/8 bits = 7200 kB/hour = 7.2 MB/hour = .0072 GB/hour

I don't know what kind of plan you have since they differ from country to country.  If you are serious about this, a flat-rate plan usually makes the most sense.  I use Verizon here in the U.S. on my Palm Treo - they used to call it an unlimited data plan but now explicitly state the real limit (5GB/month).  For audio streaming alone that would mean 694 hours of listening - almost the whole month, 24 hours per day.  Not something anyone would do.  I think I rarely come even close to using a few hundred MB.  Most of my use is email, web, some ATC listening to check new feeds, etc.

We stay with the 16kb/s bit rate to be compatible with the widest range of clients and frailest network connections (dial-up, EDGE, slow DSL, etc.).  Higher bit rates do not bring appreciably better quality for plain voice communications, but do limit the max number of connections since we reach a limit almost twice as fast as with 16kb/s (next standard bit rate is 24kb/s).

Surely one of the more oppressive plans I have seen.  sad   Rogers needs to get with the program - wireless adoption will always be slowed by carriers like Rogers.  But that's a topic for another day, and a different forum.

well its also partly my fault..

i have the 2g iphone so the only plan i could get was the $30/300mb. because its an unlocked non rogers iphone

If you buy an actual iphone 3g from rogers you would get $30/6gb.  (only if you sign up before aug 31st though)

you're right though. .many forums dedicated to the high cost of rogers.

Anyone have any luck connecting to liveatc streams on T-Mobile's Tzones ($5.99/mo) plan? I'm using the Tuner app w/ an unlocked 2g iPhone (2.0.2 firmware) and it only works when I'm on wifi. It gives me "Stream connection timed out!" when I'm on Edge (Tzones).   sad  I've tried all the variations of URL's mentioned and no luck.. (ex: alt.liveatc.net/kjfk_twr, d.liveatc.net/kjfk_twr, audio.liveatc.net/kjfk_twr) Maybe it's a limitation with Tzones??  cry  AOL Radio does work though..

Some good news for folks who want to listen to ATC feeds on iPhone for free without jailbreaking.....

A new app called "FStream" just became available yesterday.  The app is free. It permits the input of arbitrary urls (including m3u urls).

I have entered in all my local ATC feeds and works like a charm!

Excellent.  I use FStream on the Mac (from the same author) and it is simple and works great.
Thanks for the tip - I'll add it to the iPhone FAQ entry.

Thanks for finding this! I've thrown it on my iPhone and it works great! The only drawback that I saw (which someone mentioned in the app's review) is that so far, it only works over WiFi. Other than that, it works wonderfully! Good find.
