Use your Flight Planner charts in Sky-Map Android: Please note that Sky-Map Android itself does not contain any digitized aeronautical charts. If you are a Flight Planner/Sky-Map customer and already own up-to-date aeronautical charts, you can activate them in Sky-Map Android with your chart serial number as follows
The map serial number is printed below the barcode on the original CD.
If not already done, register your software and maps with ifos. The activation of your customer account is usually done within one working day.
If you do not have up-to-date digitised aeronautical charts, you must first obtain them from the air supply trade
