EFB2004 has been released!!!

Recommended Posts

It does not appear to run on a networked computer via FSWide. It looks great, but if it cannot display the maps and charts on a second computer I will have no interest. Bob...

Caveat emptor.Those who do not remember history are doomed to repeat it.Check out the history of Sim Systems...this is the same guy. He bailed out...pulled the plug completely on SimSystems...left his customers high and dry with no support for his semi-functional products. Now he's back and wants us to trust him again? I think not.Bob ScottATP IMEL Gulfstream II-III-IV-V L-300Santiago de Chile

Something at the back of my aged brain makes me recall that FSWidgets developed WeatherCenter2 which was pretty good. The product was then bought by Damian Clark at HiFi sim and is now the excellent ASV (but unrecognisable from WC2 except for FSBrowser). I wonder if EFB interacts with ASV.

>Something at the back of my aged brain makes me recall that>FSWidgets developed WeatherCenter2 which was pretty good.No...WeatherCenter was created by Keith Kile, not FSWidgets. AFAIK this is the first product released by John Hnidec after reincarnating himself as FSWidgets.Bob ScottATP IMEL Gulfstream II-III-IV-V L-300Santiago de Chile

Bob is right, I remember Keiths WX application very well and he is not connected in any way to FSWidgets.PS: Actually the EFB PDF document makes it clear it was not released by John (in the interest of fairness you may want to get the facts on that).

I registered the product and it's working fine for me. I think it's one of those utility add-ons I'll use every flight for checklists or referencing a manual. I like the open-ended design allowing a high degree of customizing.GregCYCD

Hello,I just bought and installed this addon - it works fine for me. I moved all of my manuals to the directory structure for the addon and built a new checklist for my TU-154B. I run mine on a second display (same computer) that I also use for GPS,etc. I think this is pretty slick for me.BTW - does anyone know where to get charts that run on this addon?Thanks,Ron Sagel

Hi Ron,You might be able to run the Fly! series Sectional charts (search for 'sectional' under Fly II in the file library). From the manual the charts (sectional) need to be in bmp format.For chart calibration, FSWidgets has a chart calibration tool under the EFB2004 downloads section.Bob
