How does this compare to Remote CDU?

Recommended Posts

I'm currently using Remote CDU, but wanted to know about Virtual CDU. Is this product any better, does it have more features vs Remote CDU? Could we run multiple CDU's simultaneously on our iPad. I would love to be able to have 2 or 3 CDU all on the screen at once. Especially with the PMDG 777. This is a big deal to me, so if it can't do that, then I'll probably hold off and wait until that feature is implemented. Could someone do a comparison between the 2 products?

$22 for each CDU is expensive and it seems like Remote CDU can do the same if not more for just a fraction of that price. So if there's something I'm missing that makes Virtual $22, then please let me know. I don't mind spending $22 if its worth it.

It's has a much faster response to button presses on my tablet, Remote CDU was very laggy for me.

I could not get Virtual CDU (v 2.23.1) working without network failures / disconnects.

So, I purchased Remote CDU and all ok, I have not had any problems.

Hey Captain420,

I'm Vitor from Virtual Avionics, I could try to sell you our product, but instead I'm here to say that we offer a demo version of our Virtual CDU 737 at Play Store. You can download it and get our VAinterface at store.virtualavionics.com.br/downloads, after that you can give us a feedback of what you think about it!

 

Regards,

Hey captain420,

We don't have a free version on iOS, we'll be looking how to publish a demo on App Store and I'll let you know. If you want send me your e-mail via private message so I can notify you personaly if it happens. 

Other option is installing an Android simulator in your computer and try it out via desktop.
