Gogo Business Aviation LLC Key Developments

Gogo Business Aviation LLC Adds Moving Map Capabilities to Gogo Vision

Gogo Inc. announced that its subsidiary, Gogo Business Aviation LLC has added moving map capabilities to Gogo Vision, the company's on-demand in-flight entertainment (IFE) and information service. Moving map capabilities have been seamlessly integrated into the Gogo Vision in-flight experience and are now included without additional fees. Gogo Vision offers a large library of the latest movies and TV episodes, which can be updated as often as the aircraft owner wishes, as well as news, flight progress information, destination weather, and now, moving maps. Gogo Vision service is delivered in the aircraft by Gogo's UCS 5000 system - business aviation's first all-in-one smart router and media server. Passengers can access Gogo Vision on a wide variety of personal, Wi-Fi-enabled devices such as tablets and laptops. An 'flight progress bar' on Gogo Vision's home screen gives passengers an intuitive depiction of the aircraft's current destination and flight time remaining, along with a destination weather icon. The progress bar is visible on Gogo Vision's main screen at all times, making it easy for passengers to get a quick, ‘at-a-glance’ synopsis of their flight's progress. A real-time moving map provides a birds-eye view of the aircraft's position, route previously traveled, planned route to destination, current altitude & ground speed, arrival time, destination weather and more. Passengers can adjust zoom, switch between satellite, terrain and standard map display modes, and select full- or partial-screen views. A graphical user interface (GUI) allows passengers to view moving map features, then easily return to their previous activity - such as watching a movie, TV episode or news feature - simply by touching the screen and without losing their place.
