Link is in Post #1

 

I don't think they are listing it clearly on their website until they get it talking to their other stuff. I asked about that a while back and they said they did hope to get it linked to their Android and IOS apps.

I found that the new version worked fine when run with Flight in Hawaii but not in Alaska. My work-around until this is adjusted is to load a flight in Hawaii, run GMap and connect it, then go to the Flight map and switch to Alaska. This seems to work so far.

OK, didn't realize that that was the actual file. I download it and started it up and it says you have to start MS Flight first. Now, I have never been able to figure out how to minimze Flight, once it starts, it is always full screen. So I can start this widget with MS Flight running. Is there a way to minimize MS flight while it is running ?

The link in the OP just takes you around in a circle back to the OP.

 

It downloads a ZIP file for me. Try right clicking and choosing "Save As" maybe?

Would there be some widget for MS Flight & Android?

 

The Flight version doesn't work with their Android and IOS apps yet. They do plan for it, though.

So how do I minimize Flight, so I can start this widget that I downloaded.

Run Flight in a Window, you can find that option in the Graphics settings.

ALT-ENTER may do it also. I don't remember for sure, though.

If they release an Android version, I'll get it!!! It's a shame you can't use this map ingame.

I'm with you, not to spoil the Flight look by having to run it in window mode. Rather use a sectional.

Yep. I might not have ordered all those WACs if the Android app for GMap worked with the Flight version.

 

I like the paper charts better, but could live with using my tablet. Especially as it effectively adds a GPS map to every plane.

 

I did use GMap one time, with Flight in a window, to go look for Johnston Atoll. But that's not the way I want to try to use Flight on a daily basis.
