I use from Virtual Avionics. Never had any issues. It does not work for P3D4 yet but they are working on it.

I'll second this product..  type-specific as individual products, or a bundle with the three heavies..

I loved them up to P3D v4, (where they are not yet working), but hopefully they will get this acted on quickly..  I didn't realize how much I actually used it until I didn't have it any longer.

I use from Virtual Avionics CDU (for 737) and it has been dropping the connection / many Network disconnects to my Android Tablet.

Been working with support but no solution yet.

I use Mark Foti's Remote CDU. Works like a charm. Support items like cfg setup are automatic. Key requests with system chamges take all of 45 minutes to get e new license file. It works very nice. Specific for 737, 747 and 777.

I am guessing Virtual Avionics are waiting for the release of the NGX to finalise the interface.  I hope so at least, I am waiting for it to make my EFIS and MCP  work in v4, as well as the three virtual FMCS.  They are great FMCS, but they seem to be having big changes in their company possibly causing delays.

Same here. But 777 is back in the air and VA could have released CDU for 777 at least. Not sure what is the reason for the delay.

I purchased Mark Foti's Sim Server and I have been very happy with its performance.

It has worked flawlesly (easy connection and virtually no lag, with my iPad) with PMDG's 737, 747 and 777 products in both P3Dv3 and P3Dv4 (obviously waiting for the 737 in v4).

Just to verify:

No disconnects or network failures?

Stays connected Android tablet ...  to the aircraft's CDU the entire flight?

Hello Vaughan:

My tablet is an iPad, not Android.

But I can confirm that, yes, it stays connected for entire flights (one was 3 hours long in the B747 P3Dv4) without any issues of any kind.

regards,

Roberto

But it's a web browser open on your tablet right? The VA one is an app. For those that want VA to hurry, let them know on their forum here or send them a message at their website. Squeaky wheels get the grease.

I've used Marks app for some time with my Android tablet.  Installs and works without issues for me and I've got nothing but good things to say about his great support.

Simple instructions for full screen view.

I might give it a go if VA don't release their update by this weekend. I am switching over to v4 Friday. Want to go flying hopefully by Sunday (I take my time, got a ton of stuff to reconfigure, d/l. etc...)

I just tried Marks Remote CDU (have not purchased yet).

I cannot get my newly purchased / set up Insignia 10 inch Anderoid tablet to connect to Mark's Remote CDU on my PC (PMDG737 / FSX).


I can get a good connection from my PC using Internet Explorer but not FireFox:
http://localhost:32111


It will not connect using this string from my tablet using FireFox:
http://<your ip>:32111

Not my real IP .. just for example of what I used from FireFox App.
http://<10.0.0.123>:32111


For the VA CDU I purchased an App for tablet to connect to the VA CDU. But I get Network fails / disconnects.

Do I need to purchase an App to get Mark's working with my tablet?

Hi Vaughan:

I followed these steps, to obtain the right address, to insert in the URL address line of my iPad (I used Safari, so that I could create a desktop icon)

1) Open your flight simulator (not really necessary, to do this)

2) Open the SimServer

3) Once SimServer is running (I find it in the "hidden icons" triangle in the lower right area of the desktop), open it with a right click

4) in the list of actions, you will see one called: "Generate QR Code"

5) Place the mouse cursor on that line, and it will give you three lines, one for each of the PMDG aircraft (737, 747, 777)

6) Place the cursor on the aircraft you want (737 in your case)

7) it will give you two further options for the 737  (Left CDU or Right CDU)

8) Select the CDU you want, place the cursor on that line, and it will give you the exact address you have to insert. For example: http:\\192.168.1.15:32111 

9) Use/copy that one

I assume that you computer and your tablet are on the same local network, etc. etc., for connectivity.

Good luck!

Roberto

PS: No, you don't need to purchase an app. If you decide to use it, you have to purchase a license

Roberto,

 

"8) Select the CDU you want, place the cursor on that line, and it will give you the exact address you have to insert. For example: http:\\192.168.1.15:32111 "

Using \\ or // ?, I had the correct address .. found it yesterday by using DOS command line ipconfig (for Windows PC) .

My error was using < ........> symbols in the http string.

Your example got me going (Marks CDU on my Tablet with "FMC time out" msg ... (do not have Flight Sim running ) but I used // and got rid of the < and >..

Thanks a lot ..

Oh boy!! "//" obviously. It doesn't matter how many times you read your own message to make sure everything is OK ....... 

But, I am glad it helped!

Roberto,

Right now the CDU is not in full screen on the tablet .. see screenshot.
And in this demo mode I cannot test it using live data inputs via CDU keys ..

After I create a desktop ICON for the Tablet will this display go to full screen?

Or, do I purchase it to get a CDU in full screen on the tablet?

Roberto,

Got an ICON for the 737NGX added to my Tablet Home screen.

Now the CDU on the Tablet just has some tablet Icons at the top and bottom .. almost full screen at this point.

Is this what the purchased version is like or is there a way to get full screen?

The image badly focused is my shaky camera ...

Hi Vaughan

I want to be careful as I obviously don't want to mislead you, so the best answer I have, is that MY licenced CDU shows up in full screen on my iPad.

I would suggest that you send an email to Mark, the developer, to make sure you get the correct advice.

Many regards,

Roberto
