Flight plan Format

Recommended Posts

I bought the GNS530 and have it working sucessfully in 7 planes, my question is the Reality XZP GNS uses a fpl flight plan format and I use FS Widgets great QuickPlan for iPad App to make my flight plans and their format is X-Planes fms format. Is there a converter to change from fms to fpl, I've searched everywhere but can't seem to find anything.

Not that I am aware of. My opinion is that you should be posting this to the X-Plane folks. Garmin, as the foremost supplier of aviation GPS's, pretty much dominates when it comes to flight plan formats, and simulator developers/publishers need to wake up and embrace those formats. Getting it all to mesh is the key!  Real world aviation controls vs the simulator community.
