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

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

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

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.

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).

perfect thanks!!!

Im up in Canada with a pretty unimpressive Rogers 300mb/month for 30 bucks.  Its sad really..

Luckily most of the time I am connected via wifi.

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.

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.

If you were talking to a two year old how would you tell them to set up a steam to listen via FStream?

Thanks for the help

Can be a little confusing at first. Try this -
In FStream, click on the Favorites button. Then click on the Edit button. Click on the green + button to add a new webradio stream.
Now - Give the ATC feed you want a Name - like ATC SFO for the San Fran tower. In the URL box, enter this - http://d.liveatc.net/ksfo_twr
That's it, don't worry about the other two boxes. Now hit the Save button (very important).
Now click on the Play button and you should see your ATC SFO heading. Click on it and enjoy!

using Fstream on an iphone 3G I find that
http://alt.liveatc.net/kjfk_twr
doesn't work - it disconnects from the feed after a couple of seconds.

However, this one works ok:
http://d.liveatc.net/kjfk_twr

tried it with other airports - same result.
tired it with both 3G and wifi - same result.

any ideas? thanks

They both seem to work with mine for FStream, though I've been using Internet Radiobox more than FStream. It's free, so give that one a try as well.
