  • Is There Documentation Anywhere on "How to Use the Augmented Reality (AR)" Feature?

    Hello,

    I have a Samsung Galaxy SIII phone w/Flightradar24 Pro installed. The AR feature sounds very cool but I can't find any "How To" information on it.

    Any suggestions?

    Thank you,
    Bob

    Hi.

    Look at this page and you will see a 'Spinning Radar' at the top of screen, tap on it and the Camera on your phone will open.

    Sorry just realised the Android Phones have a different layout, it looks like its on top left of the menu.

    http://www.flightradar24.com/flightradar24_apps.php

    If the compass does'nt work properly, move the phone in a figure '8' to reset the Gyro.


    This post has been moved to the correct part of the Forum.

      Your device should have a virtual button that will open a drop down menu within the FR Pro app. There you will find an option "AR". Select it to open the AR feature from within the app. Point the camera at the sky and find an aircraft.

        On the right side of the AR View I have a yellow slide bar w/a label of "124 mi". Moving the slide box does not change this value. Can someone explain the purpose of this bar?

          The slide bar adjusts the range of the AR view and, I believe, the label displays the maximum range but doesn't change as the bar is slid.

              Please see my earlier post about the dropdown menu with AR.

                    I have come to the conlusion that we need a full 'User Guide' with screenshots for Android and iOS, as these Apps get more features added they are getting difficult to explain the features and menu navigation.

                      Whilst I agree in principle, with 1,600 or more Android devices this is an impossible task.

                      I had to ask my son to help me the other day but between us we only have two devices.

                        On the s3 with the flightradar24 app running press the menu button on the phone (bottom left of screen) & the menu opens up with the top option being AR

                            Not at all. How are we supposed to find these "virtual, hidden buttons"?

                            The Samsung product description doesn't explain it and my son and I spent some time finding it on his Nexus 7.

                            Glad you found it in the end.
