Where can I buy "virtual CDU 737"?

Recommended Posts

I have tested the demo and it works perfect with my iFly737 and FSX  on a Galaxy Tab 4 with Android 5.0.2. I want to use it for a second CDU.  However, I have been unable to purchase at the Play Store.  Every time I receive a "Transaction was declined" message.  Google referred me to the developer but I have not gotten a response.  Love the app and will gladly spend the money if I can find out who will sell it to me.  

Does anyone here know how I can get virtual CDU 737?

Bob

I believe that Virtual Avionics has ceased operations--they haven't graced their support forum here with their presence in years, hence my moving the forum off to the user-to-user support area.

There's a support forum here at AVSIM for Aviaworx, who currently market and support a Remote CDU product that works with tablets, phones, and PCs.

But not support to iFly 737 aircraft, as OP requested.

Yup, you're correct.  I had thought it supported two dev's 737s, but it's actually two dev's Scarebusses (FSL and Aerosoft).

To the OP--sorry but it looks like you're outta luck for a proper remote CDU on the iFly Boeings. 

That said, there was some discussion a while back about using a CDU in a popup window and moving it to a tablet using a utility that makes a tablet operate like a second monitor, but I lack any details to offer, and I really have no idea if it would work with the iFly 737.  Time for some black-belt level Google-Fu!

Thank you for the response.  I had come to that conclusion but it is helpful to know for sure. It is frustrating with Virtual Avionics not available and Aviaworx active but not supporting yFly.  I am blessed to have a Jetmax flight deck and just want a tablet solution for the rare flight with a copilot.  It would be perfect.  I will research the "tablet as a monitor" possibility on the chance it exists and would work with the iFly. I will also monitor the Aviaworx forum for any developments there.

Thanks again Bob and polosim.

Here's an update on this topic.

A Google search brought me to this thread.   It discusses displaying flight simulator  gauges and panels on a tablet or other monitor and describes several solutions to enable that.  This led me to space desk.  It's a Windows app for your PC and tablet which turns your Android or Ios device into another monitor which Windows then recognizes.  Using the iFly Cockpit Builder client, I now can display the FO's CDU on a Galaxy Tab 4.  It works perfectly for me.  The setup for the app is easy and once you open the app on each device you have a new touch screen monitor.  Depending on your needs, the process to display your flight simulator instruments may differ.

I hope this information can benefit other flight simmers looking to improve their flight decks.

Thanks again Bob for your suggestion.  It led me to a solution and it is free!

Bob
