AUSTIN, Texas, May 28, 2014 – DAC International, a Greenwich AeroGroup company, announced today that Apple® has approved its GDC64 weather application.

The newly released weather app provides the iPad user a visual display of weather in the United States and Canada when connected to an HUT XM Receiver through DAC International’s GDC64 TAIU. Current display capabilities include U.S. radar, Canadian radar, strikes, shear, tops and satellite imagery.

“This new application will allow operators to see and react to potential weather related issues,” said General Manager of DAC International Francisco Hernandez. “The tool provides pilots with improved situational awareness, and affords them a means to plan diversions well ahead of time.”

The App, while not designed as a navigational tool, does allow for last known aircraft position display on the map. Users can zoom and pan to display desired map contents. And when displaying the aircraft icon, the map will automatically re-center when the icon reaches the edge of the map. The map is always drawn in the landscape position.

DAC previously released its first app, the GDC64 in May, 2013, which provides a means to configure the GDC64.

To obtain the new weather app from the iTunes store just search on GDC64 Wx or access the store via https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/gdc64wx/id867717680?mt=8&uo=4 for iPhone or https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/gdc64wx/id867717680?mt=8&uo=4 for iPad.
