FlightMap

FlightMap


FlightMap is a second screen navigation utility for Microsoft Flight Simulator X (FSX) and Lockheed Martin Prepar3D (P3D). Use FlightMap to plot your simulated location and flight plans on Google Maps in real time.

FlightMap uses a free server component called FlightConnect which runs on the same computer as the Flight Simulator. FlightConnect must be installed and running before FlightMap will function. FlightConnect is available for free from my website at:

FlightMap offers the following features:

- Designed for tablets with a screen size 7 inches and larger
- Maps simulated aircraft position in real time on top of Google Maps.
- Supports Standard, Satellite, Hybrid Satellite, and Terrain map types.
- 35 selectable aircraft to use as the aircraft display icon.
- Compass rose overlaid on the map view for easier navigation and orientation.
- "TRK" Toggle: Ability to switch between north up and plane heading up in the map view.
- Database of over 500 major airports throughout the entire world that can be shown on the map
- Support for Regional Airport, VOR, and NDB overlay. (Support is limited by how well FSX and Prepar3D return data)

- Support for ad-hoc flight plans via the built in plan mode.
- Shows distance to waypoint and estimated time to waypoint based off current airspeed in Adhoc flight mode.

- Full FSX and P3D active flight plan support in the FlightMap "GPS" mode.
- Compatible with most 3rd party flight plan tools. Just load the flight plan in FSX or P3D and it shows in FlightMap
- Display next waypoint information including ID, Distance, Altitude, ETE, CTS, and DTK in FSX/P3D Flight Plan mode
- Supports FSX/P3D airport approach modes. Next approach waypoint will be plotted when active

- Simulated gauges for Air Speed, Altitude, Heading, and Fuel Levels.
- Automatic Gauge Selection for Airspeed Indicators: 100, 200, 240, 280, 360, 450, 540, 900 knot Gauges supported
- Gauge support for smaller tablets via a sliding window from the top. Tap or pull down the shade to show the gauges.

- Simple network setup. Just run FlightConnect on the pc and hit launch in FlightMap to connect

Amazing App Such great value and so easy to set up. Hope this developer continues to focus on FSX apps and continues to improve and refine them. I just bought his Gauges app and can't wait to start using it. Keep up the fantastic work!

Thank you I've been using both apps by this developer and strongly recommend both, though this one has the edge with the map. If you use FSX try the apps. A huge thank you to vine ripe software.

Brilliant Brilliant Brilliant I've been using this app for several months now and all i can say is this product is a must have for any flight simulator enthusiast. The app adds an extra dynamic to flight simulation by giving you a moving map of your location and route. Included in the app are instruments on primary flight information, being very useful when retiring to the couch on those long haul flights. Finally the after sales service has been top notch. Keep up the good work Eric.

Brilliant, seriously brilliant app... I wouldn't say this is a 'must-have' app for FSX, but it's a 'must-try-before-you-buy' app! Once tried, I defy you not to buy it as it adds so much to FSX (or FSX:SE). I'm using it on a Win 8.1/Tesco Hudl 2 (8.3" Tablet) combination and it performs perfectly! This really is a worthwhile addition to your FSX library of 'very worthwhile' add-ons; it is simply superb! Thank you to the dev Eric, for your hard work! I, for one, much appreciate it!
