777 Remote CDU Server for iOS / Android

Recommended Posts

Hi PMDG-Team,

 

not sure if you have noticed, Mark Foti released a Remote CDU Server for Android / IOS for the 737 NGX :

 

library.avsim.net/esearch.php?DLID=191519

 

Works great on a tablet or big smartphone and much enhances the fun !

 

If I understood Mark correctly, a 777 version would need similar SDK contents.

 

If at all possible, please consider making this for the 777 possible as well.

Hi PMDG-Team,

 

I just have installed Mark's Remote CDU for the B737NGX and it's an amazing tool and a great idea to have the CDU on an external device, especially when using a touchscreen tablet, it's a total new level of flight experience. It would be great to have it for the B777 as well.

 

Regards,

Daniel

...one more vote. Bought it for the 73 - it works brilliant. No frame impact, nearly no delay. Want it for the 77 too!

Add one more vote here! Definitely a must-have to enhance the PMDG experience.

 

Best,

I have been using this app for quite a while, together with their other CDUs, and they are nothing but fantastic.

Sorry but these posts aren't about advertising an alternative at $20 it's about asking pmdg to open up the sdk for another developer to create an alternative. $20 is out of the reach of some people €5 may be more acceptable to them.

Cool down, mate. I'm not advertising anything. I am not a developer to have business in it.

All I did was showing someone (not you) an alternative which he might or might not know.

I am intelligent enough to know different people have different budgets. For this exact reason I am not using a hardware CDU, though I would love to.

Perfectly cool "mate"

Guys

 

I vaguely recall PMDG stating that they are not allowing access to the CDU programming on the 777 due to the risk of 3rd party apps messing with their code / logic. Something like they would allow viewing via SDK but not changing values?

 

That said, it seems to be available on the NGX so not entirely sure here.

 

Kyle?
