Ok so trying to get my dopey head around Simbrief just now. It's actually getting the plans into the FMC's I'm struggling with. As I said before, I'm not very techi.

Once you have created your flight plan, click on the Create OFP button, once that is complete, scroll down and you will find options to download FP.

Not at home at moment, so not sure if that's totally correct, but I think its OFP.

There's a tutorial video here:

Or a written user guide here:
https://www.simbrief.com/system/guide.php

Quick how-to:
Under 'Dispatch Options', click on 'Generate OFP' once all of the flight information has been entered.
After the 'Generating Briefing Package' status page has come and gone, you need to click on the 'Download FMS' under 'Dispatch Output', then click on the download button for your chosen aircraft.

Little Nav Map is my tool of choice (donate-ware) but there are plenty of other good options.  

Foreflight  (payware and used real world) is another option, this handy product has just about everything (weather, fuel availability, TFRs/NOTAMS, checklists, fuel calculators, etc. etc.) ... can be expensive (especially outside US) and is subscription based.

Cheers, Rob.

I use Ideal Flight Professional which shows the route in the default browser and in the simulator and automatically exports to PMDG and most other aircraft. With manual plans I use PFPX and drop them on IFPro which takes those plans and creates a full fat flight from them. An older shot shown with the Dash 8 plan loaded before Majestic they made it more compatible. At that time only Ideal Flight could do it. Another aspect of the Ideal Flight planner is that it can make routes from the fsAerodata set. Recently updated to handle Prepar3D v5.
