Is there a way of using Android tablet for default GPS?

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I'm not sure if this is already covered, sorry for that, but as the title says, can I use my Android tablet for displaying the default FSX GPS? I'm not referring to a moving map solution necessarily.

Many thanks,

I just recently got an iPad also. I'd like to hear of some apps also for tablets with FSX. Someone needs to compile a list of what's out there or is there one already?

I asked a similar question a week or more ago, to find out if I can send my EFB-created route plan to an Android, and got no repsonse. So, this will be interesting to follow.

Hi,

 

You can use your android tablet for a free moving map app. Look for "FsMovMap" on Play Store. It uses Google Maps. Run Fsx, start the FsMovMap server on your PC and FsMovMap on the tablet.

Yes you can I have Nexus 7 with Garmin Pilot; Naviator and AviationMaps installed. These are real EFB's that I use in a real airplane, but also use with FSX to stay current with their features.

 

If this is what you're looking for I will be more than happy to share how to do it. But be warned it's not for the faint in heart...there's a lot of steps and things to buy (if you don't already have them)...but once its set up it will always work and it works great!

So far, the only Android apps I've heard of are the ones Devon & Hugo mentioned, but they're moving maps only. I don't think anyone's come up with one utilizing the Default FS 9 or FSX GPS yet.

The Avsim review of the RemoteFlight for IOS products should be published any day now. I was especially impressed with all of the apps. It has been in the pipeline for more than a month now.

You can use iDisplay or AirDisplay to have the Android tablet as a second monitor (wireless) and drag an undocked FSX window over to that monitor.

 

That way you display anything that FSX can show in a window, on your Android tablet.

 

Here an example of a gauge six pack on the tablet..

Quick Plan is brilliant....love the way it can be linked to Dropbox. Create plans anywhere, anytime and upload. Next time you are on your machine you can collect and install, MAGIC.
