Gogo Partners with Rockwell Collins to Bring Airshow Moving Map to Business Aviation
Moving maps are one of the most popular features of any inflight entertainment system, and as part of the release of its ATG 2.7 software upgrade Gogo Business Aviation brings Airshow® moving maps to customers in the business aviation market through a partnership with Rockwell Collins. Airshow is the aviation industry’s leading moving map application, and is now available to Gogo ATG customers for use in business aviation cabins without the need for additional hardware.

With Airshow, passengers can enjoy stunning 3D graphics with amazing geographic detail on their personal devices.”
