Remote CDU for Iphone and Tablet

Recommended Posts

Not too long ago I purchased a new pc for prepar3d as I made the transition from FSX. I figured an I7 with two 970's in SLI would do the trick and I have not been disappointed - besides the occasional OOM. While I was at it, I decided to get 3 27" screens to complete the setup. 


Since that moment I became more and more interested in building my own pit. Not yet ready to commit completely - because of time - I started dragging the NDU and CDU to a separate screen. I immediately experienced a drop in VAS and realized  dragging screens around hits hard on virtual memory. 


As part of my daily routine I browse the library in search for those little gems that make life in the virtual skies so much nicer. A livery, a brilliant scenery or sometimes a tool that makes life easier. While doing this I stumbled upon the file Mark uploaded to the library. The remote CDU for PMDG. It was an offer I couldn't refuse, free to check it out. If you want full functionality you pay a very small fee (GBP 3.29 I think I paid) For that amount you get a standalone CDU on your Ipad or Iphone (or android )


The installation is plain and simple and before you know it you're up and running. Not having full functionality I straight away saw the potential of having this gadget. It would mean one less screen and better VAS while setting up my PMDG pit... Needles to say: it worked! My VAS usage is down from not having to drag the CDU and undock it.


The program self is easy to use, right click on the icon in the tray and generate a QR code for right or left CDU scan it and you're done. The manual is clear and easy to understand and Mark even gives you a tip how to add the link to your homescreen. 


I have flown two flights today and I had no faults, no lag and everything functioned like it should. Needless to say I am a happy customer and will purchase the T7 version soon as well. For me this is a '' must have''
