X-Plane to GPS

X-Plane to GPS


X-Plane to GPS is a utility that allows you to use your Android tablet or other device as a moving map for X-Plane (X-Plane must be running on a PC, *not* a phone/tablet). The app reads location data broadcast by X-Plane and spoofs the GPS location of the device to match that of the simulated aircraft. X-Plane to GPS is not a moving map itself; it allows you to use Google Earth, Garmin Pilot, Naviator, EasyVFR, or any other application that depends upon the GPS location.

Using X-Plane to GPS is very simple; just follow the steps on the Instructions tab. As of version 1.40, the application can automatically configure X-Plane for you! Setting the Active/Paused button to Active will start a background service to ensure that data stays flowing while the application is in the background (the service is terminated when the button is set to Paused). Once the connection is established you will see a valid position on the Data tab and you can switch to the moving map application of your choice. The app has been developed and tested with X-Plane versions 9 and 10; older versions might not work as the UDP data format has changed over time. For more complete instructions please visit the developer's website and download the manual.

X-Plane to GPS is a product of Appropel and is not related to Laminar Research, Google, Garmin, 123west, or PocketFMS.

Best EVAR Of all the X-Plane mapping apps, this is the coolest. Ironically, also the cheapest. I've gotten at least 20 total flying hours using this app, and haven't had a single error, incorrect data, or crash once. Nothing wrong with it at all. Can't think of anything I would like to see improved. Don't know why people are having problems with it on the S3, it worked on my S3 using stock ROM and it is still working using a custom ROM. I use it with OruxMaps. A++ Would Fly Again

Works Like a Charm, but... The instructions on the video are outdated. Newer Android users need to tap "build number" several times under About Device to unlock Mock GPS. Once you are past that hurdle everything else is excellent and works exactly as it says. Super! Developer very fast to respond to questions via email too. 5 star experience.

Very Cool This is really cool app and works really well, BUT there is a one problem, it seems that google maps shows heading from gyro/compass not from the game.... So far I haven't been able to find a solution to disable the built in compass. Device: Nexus 7.

Doesn't work on Android 4.3 & GS3 It seems that Google or Samsung is blocking the use of mock locations in both Google Maps, and Google Earth on my Galaxy S3, so they won't show the X-Plane data. At the suggestion of the author I tried using this app with Avare moving aviation map, and it works, but Avare is kinda buggy and awkward to use, IMO.
