SimPlates for Flight Simulator

SimPlates for Flight Simulator


SimPlates brings you the world’s largest collection of real-world IFR approach (and other) charts for the serious flight simulation enthusiast to your fingertips! SimPlates is not a flight simulator program in and of itself, but can be used as a companion on your android tablet or phone-type device concurrently with your enjoyment of your preferred computerized desktop flight simulation program to help expand the realism and excitement of the experience. SimPlates has been called "a must have for the serious flight simulator enthusiast" and "a great addition to your flight sim bag" by major flight simulation websites in independent reviews.

++THE VERSION NOW AVAILABLE HERE IS OF THE NEW 'SIMPLATES ULTRA' version which is a great leap forward in terms of plate coverage to the previous generation of SimPlates. Moreover, we have now addressed all of the known issues with the app on every Android platform that we have encountered. The app looks and works great -- we sincerely thank those early purchasers who patiently worked with us through niggles in early versions and offer a virtual kick in the behind to the one guy who wrote us a bad review rather than allowing us to promptly help him. Thank you all for the great feedback and kind words about SimPlates on simulator forums. We're glad you're enjoying the massive number of plates (way more than any other sim product has - including expensive subscription bases services) and we continue to update the plate database further with more plates still.

!!! AS SOON AS YOU GET THE APP DO A DATABASE UPDATE CHECK FROM THE MAIN MENU TO GET THE LATEST AND GREATEST !!!

The basic way that you use SimPlates is just like pilots from those flying small Cessnas to those flying Boeing and Airbus airliners do every day. As you virtually approach an airport on your computer, bring up its corresponding plates in the SimPlates app. Use the plate as a guide in flying the approach to landing - just like a real world pilot would. SimPlates is useful for virtual pilots of many desktop flight simulation programs, including Flight Simulator (all versions including FSX, FS2004, and MS-Flight), X-Plane, and more.

While SimPlates are real-world plates, they are NOT SUITABLE FOR REAL WORLD FLIGHT OPERATIONS and MUST NOT BE USED FOR REAL WORLD FLIGHT OPERATIONS OF ANY SORT. As SimPlates is intended for flight simulation entertainment use, the plates are not kept up to date with real-world aviation changes (worldwide subscriptions for real-world current data over $2000 per year elsewhere!). However, for serious flight simulation entertainment use, the massive collection of plates represents incredible value and capability.

SimPlates includes over 70,000 real-world IFR plates, including approach plates, SIDs/STARs (Departures/Arrivals), Airport Diagrams, Approach types include ILS, VOR, VOR/DME, NDB, LLZ, SDF, GPS, TACAN, Helicopter and Visual. With so many plates, SimPlates provides very good worldwide coverage. For most countries and major airports of the world, if you are looking for a plates, SimPlates will likely have it. However, the coverage is not universal - please see http://www.dauntless-soft.com/products/simplates/airportlist.asp for the current list of inclusions.

Supplemental features include an integrated WORLDWIDE Airport/Facilities directory and a worldwide NAVAID (Navigational Aid) directory.

Simplates' friendly interface makes it easy to find exactly the plate or information you are looking for quickly. As the totality of plates exceeds a whopping 100gb, the plates themselves are not included with your initial download from the AppStore. Rather, they are downloaded on demand when you select them in the app – this generally takes only a few moments per plate, but does require you to be online. Any plates you have downloaded into SimPlates remain on your device (unless cleared) so that you can continue to use them even while offline.

Not for Nexus 7 This program doesn't work on Nexus 7. It only takes you back to the startup screen. No information is displayed at all. Also, if you have problems, it the help within the app tells you to uninstall and re-install it. Google Play charges you each time you install it. Now I've been charged, refunded, and charged again. Now I've got $42 x 2 in charges and it will be several days before I get a refund. I shouldn't have purchased this software. Only now do I see that another Nexus 9 user had the same issue. I hope I can get a refund. I make one purchase on Google in the past year, and it doesn't work! Then, it ties up $100 of my credit for several days. UPDATE: Google Play support is AWESOME!!! I sent a help/call request via the help. I was called back within 10 seconds. They refunded me for the two charges on this software within 1 minute. So, Simplates gets negative star review. Google gets a Double 10 star review.

Simplates Awesome. All plates I've search today (I know, Sim only) are dated current! Database is huge, and for the price any serious Sim pilot needs this app. Plates are high def and perfectly viewable on HTC one m8. One of the best value Prepar3d add-ons to have. 100% recommended.
