Has anyone that uses JeppFD done the new update for the iPads to iSO6? I couldn't find anything on the Jepp Mobile web page, but I remember they had problems with functionality when apple released the last software update. It took jepp several months to release their app update to fix the issues. Curious if anyone is having similar problems as before.

Haven't updated to iOS6 for just that reason.

I updated to iOS 6 forgetting about the issues last time. I used JeppFD the next day and it seemed to work fine. Updated fine, was able to enter a route with airways, and bluetooth GPS worked fine. No crashes.

Didn't try using the search bar though. I'll have to test that later, I seem to remember that quit working with the last update but they got it working again pretty quickly. Either way, unless you have an iPad 3, you don't really gain much with iOS 6 but you do lose Google Maps. With an iPad 3 you get Siri which can be quite helpful sometimes.

By original do you mean you updated an iPad 1 to iOS ver 6.0??

So far we have updated 7 iPads to iOS ver 6 with no issues with an apps including Jepp. We do have an issue connecting to our brani-new 550's wireless network. We are working with the vendor on a patch.

Two iPad 2 devices updated to iOS6 here. No JeppFD issues to report.

We did experience issues connecting to onboard wifi after the iOS6 update on iPads and iPhones. Several calls to the vendor (they said we weren't the only ones) and the problem resolved itself without explanation. Not sure if it was Apple or AirCell, but it's working again.

Nope, JeppFD is just as buggy and unreliable as its always been...


...sure wish they'd release the next update...

Our issue was resolved as well.

Don't do it.

The maps app for iOS 6 is pretty much unusable.
