April 2024 Updates to Gaggle

The Gaggle logo
  1. Recovery Driver Improvements: Now you can see a list of people flying and easily navigate to them or message them in the app.
  2. Route Planning Improvements: We’ve enhanced route planning. You can now tap anywhere on the map to see details about that area and add a waypoint. The mobile experience has also been redesigned.
  3. Explore Map Improvements: Tap anywhere on the explore map to see details about that area and quickly add a flying site or point of interest at the tapped location.
  4. Improved Recorder Startup Reliability: Android users, please check that everything is functioning correctly.
  5. Added Site URL Option for Site Guides: When you add a URL with info about the site, we will now pull that info from the website and integrate it into the site guide automatically.
  6. Emergency Contact Improvements: We’ve improved the emergency contact feature so that you can choose one or more Gaggle Groups that will be notified in case of an emergency. You can also set a phone number that will be messaged (in supported countries and subscription required).

    • Improved the recording replay view timelines.
    • Fixed the 3D replay not working on the web.
