Moving Maps to Out-of-the-Box Apps: Now Come Standard with Gogo AVANCE

Admit it: you love the moving map.

We all do. There is something intrinsically satisfying about watching your progress through the air, seeing your speed and the scale of your journey. On commercial flights, the moving map used to be default mode; it’s what showed up on the screen when you didn’t purchase entertainment. These days, moving maps are sophisticated enough to be entertaining on their own – and they are also one of many entertainment and information services included at no extra cost with Gogo’s new AVANCE platform.

The Gogo AVANCE platform represents a tremendous step forward in inflight connectivity, bringing hardware and software together on a unified platform that you can customize to create your perfect onboard technology experience. In other words, it delivers everything you need in one box – no need for multiple systems to support your connectivity, smart cabin and entertainment needs.

Inflight information and entertainment - such as integrated moving maps, destination weather and news - have traditionally been part of our Gogo Vision offering. However, Gogo AVANCE makes Vision’s turn-key, on-demand entertainment even easier by incorporating it into your core inflight connectivity platform. With Gogo AVANCE, “infotainment” comes free.

With the Gogo AVANCE platform, you get the following services at no extra charge:

  • Rich, informative moving map that lets you explore where you are, where you’re headed in satellite or terrain view
  • Real-time flight progress updates on your flight time, altitude, and ETA
  • The latest news headlines, including video clips
  • Detailed destination weather information, from current temps to hourly and 10-day forecasts
  • In-cabin file sharing for easy collaboration with others on the flight.

To gain access to 150+ blockbuster movies and hit TV shows, a Gogo Vision monthly subscription is required. With this subscription, you’re assured a set cost with no constraints rather than a potentially high cost to stream movies & TV over your favorite video services, such as Netflix, Hulu, or Amazon Prime.

Your inflight connectivity solution should be seamless for your business, not just your passengers. Gogo AVANCE makes it easy to offer the entertainment and information that your customers expect without the additional cost of a system, and the ability to easily upgrade your entertainment services.

That means that everyone on your flights can choose how they want to work or play – or maybe just relax and enjoy the always fascinating moving map.
