FSWidgets iGMap App Description

The FSWidgets iGMap app turns your iPhone or iPod touch into a moving map for your desktop flight simulator! (See iGMapHD for the iPad Version) Do you own Flight Simulator X, Flight Simulator 2004, X-Plane or Aerofly FS 2? This app works with the three most popular desktop simulators on the market today, giving you a hand-held moving map to aid navigation, especially on simulated VFR flights. It connects to the flight simulator via our free FSWidgets Network Pack which can be downloaded from the FSWidgets website (http://fswidgets.com/shop/network.php). iGMap saves valuable screen real-estate on your desktop by using your iPhone or iPod Touch to display your aircraft's current position.

  • iGMap with iPhone 3GS

    Really well done App. Installation - easy. Runs smooth and accurate. It's better than good, but not great because I wish there was satellite imagery available as with their desktop version. Great side "map-monitor" when flying. I use FSX and XP is my operating system. Well worth the cost.
  • Great!

    By Pippo3000
    Just great. Can 'watch' my flight progress while away from my PC. And of course follow a detailed approach. Great support, too. Only wish right now: show also flight details, especially height, speed and heading. And possibly a flight plan. Also weather overlays would be great.
  • Awesome app
