There is a much cheaper alternative. Look for Mark Foti in the AVSIM library.

Agreed. As an owner and user of all of Mr. Foti's apps, I couldn't be happier. And you can have multiple connections. Left side on my tablet, right on my phone. I can check the status of a flight from anywhere in the house. Not to mention you can purchase the license for the upcoming PMDG 747v2 and have it on launch day. All for a lot less than the other options.

Ok. Haven't tried it yet, but the pics look great. Wish to have known this before...

Hmm, no prices, have to send a request... Strange...

Update:  now I know, its EUR 27.50 for 3 licences...

Ok. tried it quickly

 

The CDU being a webpage has its advantages and disadvantages. A webpage is more versatile of course. The Android App has "clicks" and an option to keep the screen on. The Android app does not always connect to existing, saved situations (but saved with the CDU working, no problem), but Mark Foti's version does.

 

Need to find a full screen browser, and set the display time-out to infinite... Foti's app/page seem a bit slower at times....

 

I think I'll fly with the Android app for now. When I am ready for the 777, I'll start with the Foti CDU. 

 

OMG, a 747? Didn't know that. Banking,Banking...

Android app does this too. Ideal for Netflix binge watching and flying long routes  :wink:

 

Does Mr Foti have more apps??

Hi Tony,

 

regarding your browser: please check out the FAQ at the support forum for the Remote CDU:

http://www.avsim.com/topic/475080-faq/

 

There's a link how you can add the app to your homescreen, making it feel much more like a native app. This will work for both IOS and Android.

 

If you have any further questions or issues, feel free to post on the support forum directly:

Best Regards

Mark Foti

(and no, I don't have further apps at this point)
