New in Version 5.1 - Google Earth View
Version 5.1 features a very cool new view. A Google Earth view is
opened within StrePla. It is very interesting flying through your
flights over the extremely detailed maps available in Google Earth.
You can't view the glider from outside the cockpit, but it is extremely cool
to be able to see the runway, airport buildings and other details. It really
"takes you back" and makes re-living the flight a 3D reality.
New Features in version 3.3 of StrePla
- Supports a wide variety of digital map
- Vector maps - Topographical data and
rivers, lakes, cities, etc. Very nice detail. Great for
route planning and use in pocket*StrePla
- Raster maps (bitmaps) - US Sectional Aeronautical Charts -
Exactly the same as the printed charts you are used to flying with.
Very nice, but perhaps a bit cluttered. This is a unique
feature that no other soaring flight software offers.
Especially good for viewing flight logs in 3D in StrePla after the flight.
They look fantastic when draped over mountains in the 3D view.
- Satellite Image Maps (not available
for all areas). Very cool for viewing flight logs in 3D in StrePla after the flight.
They are especially nice when draped over mountains in the 3D view.
