    iFMS For Apple Devices


    Chuck_Jodry-VJPL

    iFMS will provides  a nearly fully functional "Boeing style" Flight Management System and HSI display on your iPhone, iPad (Mini) or iPod Touch, to make your Flight Simulator experience a more realistic one.

    The FMS display and functionality simulates the "Boeing style" Flight Management System accurately.
    Apart from all the standard flight planning and tracking (LNAV and VNAV) functionality, all the more complex functions such as hold programing, custom waypoint programming by coordinates, heading/distance calculation or waypoints radial/intersection calculation and abeam route waypoint calculations are available as well, along with much, much more.

    The HSI display was developed to equally realistic standards.
    Like the real Boeing HSI display it has a moving "MAP" mode and "PLAN" mode which allows for stepping through the active route.
    Your programmed route, the waypoints, the fixes, the navaids, the airports etc. are all programmed to be displayed using the standard symbolization rules of the industry.
    The route is properly drawn as a rounded track with turns calculated based on groundspeed and configurable parameters in your aircraft file.
    The visible range of the HSI can be set in the usual intervals between 5NM to 320NM.
    Toggling display of airports, navaids, fixes, and visual reporting points (if present in the navigation data) is off course possible as well and these functions respond depending on the current visible range, just they would in the real Boeing system.

    iFMS uses Wi-Fi to connect to your favorite Flight Simulator over your local network, alternatively iFMS can also use the device GPS (if present) as a data source, you can be a passenger in the car and practice your FMS programming skills. Be aware though, iFMS cannot be used for real world aviation navigation as this is strictly against the terms of use of this product.

    iFMS can be configured for use with almost any of your favorite Flight Simulator's standard or add-on aircraft, 2 default aircraft are included but you can easily make your own on your PC and transfer them to iFMS through iTunes.
