Best freeware/payware standalone GPS?

Recommended Posts

I know of RealityXP - but are there any other options to explore, either freeware or payware? I'm dying for realistic GPS navigation in my Carenado birds.

You should take a look at the following:

It's written only for X-Plane. I use the Avidyne systems for GPS navigation and it's just beautiful.

 

Here's the best part: All of those gauges can run on a separate system and can be configured to only run1, 2 or X gauges on a separate system.

 

The panels are highly configurable and aren't aircraft-specific. It just looks at the X-Plane data and uses it, making it compatible with pretty much every aircraft. (The software can run in trial mode so you can validate your requirements before purchase.)

 

Here's my Fixed-Base simulator using the Avidyne stuff:

If FlyThisSim.com isn't what you're looking for, you might also want to look at ForeFlight for the iPad/iPhone. Pretty slick stuff going on there.

There's also the KLN90B.

 

I never used it, and it requires some detailed steps to be integrated into different aircraft models, but I have read good comments about the way it performs.

 

The An-24 is about to get an upgrade that already includes the 3D version of the KLN 90B integrated in it's complex cockpit!

Ernie Alston's ISG gauge suite has a pretty decent implementation of a Honeywell XLSGNS, as well as a Smiths FMS.

Nope...once again I've been bitten by following a link from the front page where it doesn't show what forum the post is in...
