Flyinside Virtual desktop windows as electronic flight bags or moving map

Recommended Posts

Flyinside Virtual desktop windows as  electronic flight bags or moving map 

list of compatable programs

ive tried a few windows 7 moving map programs that load up ok in  flyinside as virtual desktop windows

1st one is skydemon  www.skydemon.aero   (1 month free trial !!)

used with fsuipc 4 gps out option set to com port 2

then use

http://www.advancedvirtualcomport.com/

( not cheap but works perfect !!! ) but you can try it for 14 days to make sure it work ok 1st before purchasing

for creating a virtual com port 2 and 3

 then select in skydemon the gps com port as com 3

and it will display your Preapr3d current postion on a moving map

works perfect

 

-----------------

 

next I tried was

Navigraphs online web charts  as a moving map

https://charts.navigraph.com/flights  (about 60 pounds a year subscription)

used with Navigraphs simlink program it will show prepar3d current postion on the IFR chart  or airport approach plates

well it loads ok cos it only a web page and flyinside will display any ie or chrome  web page  fine

but I couldnt get the simlink program  working with prepar3d  so it wasn't showing my current postion on the naviagraph web  charts

tried the simlink program with xplane 10 and 11 and its working fine  aircrafts postion shows perfectly on the charts or approach plates

has anyone else had success getting the  simlink program  working  with prepar3d or fsx ??

 

 if anyones got any alternative suggestions for a Flyinside in cockpit moving  map please post them below 

IE Skyvector etc

thanks

My experience with almost any virtual window in flyinside comes with a fps hit, so i dont use any outside window, for me best solution is using GTN 750 built in VC.

Oculus dash lets you bring outside windows into the sim or any app very easily. You should be looking in the virtual reality forum!

LittleNavMap will load into the virtual window of FlyInside. It is a free moving map and flight planner that works really well . Also using the Dash Desktop in Oculus Home I can load FlyInside which in turn loads X-Plane. I couldn't run FlyInside from the old Oculus Home.

In summary

My favourite  moving map for Flyinside VR use is skydemon 

works perfect as per the above setup instructions !!!!

-----------------------------

also ive found a really nice ultralight thats great for Prepar3d v3 VR flying

its an MX2 ultralight originally designed for fs2004

http://secure.simmarket.com/sydesigns-autana-2005.phtml

it comes as part of this payware scenery package 

but you can  use it in preapr3d  by placing the ( Ultralight MX2 ) Aircraft  in

prepar3d v3    .............. simobjects \Aircraft folder

and it works

also

place the skydemon ipad style moving map on the mx2 tubular frame  and your ready for some VFR cross country flights
