• AivlaSoft announces EFB Version 2.0


    Chuck_Jodry-VJPL

    AivlaSoft is proud to announce that on  1 July 2018, the new Electronic Flight Bag "EFB v2" will be released.

    AivlaSoft's Electronic Flight Bag provides the following main functionality:
    1. Area Navigational Charts
    2. Ground Layout of Airports
    3. Departure and Arrival Charts
    4. Moving Map
    5. Flight Planning
    6. Flight Log
    7. Performance Calculations *1
    8. Meteorological Data
    9. Radio Panel
    10. Checklists
    11. Document Administration
    *1 requires a valid copy of TOPCAT to be installed

    AivlaSoft's EFB v2 consists of one "Server" and one or more "Clients".
    The "Server" acts as the background interface between the Flight Simulator and the "Client". It
    keeps connection to the simulator all the time and provides one or more "Clients" with all
    necessary data. The "Client" is the application accessed by the user, hence the interface between
    man and machine.

    If required (e.g. in a Home Cockpit) more than one Client may be installed on a Local Area Network,
    allowing both Pilot and Copilot individual access to a Client, but still remain interconnected and
    synchronized.

    EFB v2 connects to the following simulators through FSUIPC (unregistered version):
    - Prepar3D v2, v3, v4
    - FSX
    - FSX:SE
    - FS9

    It is planned (with one of the next versions) to also support XPlane 11.x.

    As mentioned above, the release date is  1 July 2018, however the manuals are already available for download.

    There is also a mention in manual with regards to powerlines - author would prefer you use a Lan connection.

    I use powerlines so will try the 30 trial and see if its ok with my setup.

    All the best

    Nice interface, runs faster I think but I have a new 2700x chip so it's a bit hard to tell. After getting it setup properly I like it better than V1. You need FSUIPC. It works with the free version with the Client and Server on the same machine. You need the FSUIPC Wide if you want to run the client on another machine.

    Server = Data Provider, Client ='s old Display Unit.

    The pay ware version of FSUIPC is worth the money. You can set up your controls for specific aircraft, PMDG, Airosoft, and a bunch of other stuff.  Aivlasoft EFB v2 interfaces with Topcat very nicely. I bought both PFPX and Topcat that was offered at a decent price, Getting used to PFPX and I think It will be the way to go along with Topcat .

    I like it, worth the money IMHO!

    Are you sure. I thought that was handled by SimConnect.

    No, fsuipc is only needed for radio control.. and the free version is enough 🙂

    It's also used for showing Ai aircraft. Using SimConnect in v1 caused problems where all the Ai eventually disappeared.

    Pretty sure I read it in Aivlasofts docs. I already used the paid version of FSUIPC + FSUIPC Wide. I do remember something about seeing other Aircraft problems with v1.

    I map all my controls thru FSUIPC, many worth while things can be done with the paid version, check it out.

    You need the Wide version if you run the Client on a networked/other machine.

    Fair enough. I’ve had WideFS for years so never tested if it was required for EFB Client on another PC.
