Aviators: how do you lookup navaids' A/FD pages in ForeFlight?

ForeFlight is a great replacement for paper charts and the A/FD -- except when it comes to non-airports in the A/FD. How do you find information about a navaid that is not on an airport?

There is a lot of essential information about navaids in the A/FD -- not just service volumes, but also unusable sectors where the signal must not be used for navigation. Searching for the VOR name on the "Airports" section in ForeFlight does not find anything. Various internet searches have been fruitless. (I asked a couple of CFIs and they didn't know either.)
Example: the Manteca VOR (ECA) is under the entry for the Tracy airport. If I knew that, I could look it up; but I would naively expect it to be under Stockton, which is a larger airport and closer to boot.
