GeeDadReally's Review of Fswidgets IgmaphdReviewed on 9/16/19 2:06 PM
For anyone with an iPad who flies FSX... or FS2004 & X-Plane, for that matter... Works exactly as advertised. Totally eliminates the need to pause to switch to the in-sim map. Definitely recommended for those that can afford the rather steep price... Speaking of $... I've dropped $25 on these two apps (iPad & iPhone)... Surely that's enough to put the screws to the Wizards of Oz so that they'll allow us some Aussie charts...

I had connection issues and received outstanding support from Fermin! Multiple trouble shooting suggestions with spot on end result. Can't say enough about the level of support received...learned something as well. The App is a superb and absolute must for a pilot at any level. Fabulous features and excellence student pilot learning Tool! Outstanding job!

I am new to Xplane. This app works great. It was a smart idea to allow locating the computer ip address from inside the app. I have tried other apps that didn't have this feature and was unsuccessful in getting my Xplane location to show up on my iPad. If you could addd a distance to airport in miles feature that would be great...

This has been the most important "addon" I have used with FSX. It has made my flying so much more enjoyable. I am able to see where I am in the world and and relate that to my flight plan. If I could give it 10 stars I would. The times that I have contact Tech Support, Fermin Fernandez, he has responded with the answer usually within an hour or two. He is also very receiptive to any ideas that you have for improving the product. If you fly FSX buy it!! It is great to have a moving map showing your location with no frame rate hits. Fantastic!

If weather data gets added and some more graphical interface work and I'd tell all my friends about it

I've been waiting for this one since FSX was introduced. It worked "out of the box", with FSX Gold Edition and Windows 7, on my iPad. The tracking is smooth and my frame rate in FSX seemed unaffected. I'm a student pilot in his last phase of training and haven't spent a lot of time with FSX over the past few months, but this is certainly getting me back into the sim!

I know this app is one high cost. I am a instrument student and getting close to taking my check ride. In order to avoid too much flight time i have been using FSX a lot to learn on the ground and this app provide a good benefit by letting you see your track against your flight plan. This provides real world experience reading and working with low level enroute charts and helps integrate their use with navaids so you can actually feel like you are on an IFR flight. I would have given 5 stars if this app also provided approach plates and positional info against the plate while flying the approach. Since simplates are not supported anymore this feature would bring back that capability that Jeppeson abandoned and for the instrument pilot a great learning and teaching tool.

This is a fantastic and necessary addition to X-Plane. It gives modern GPS navigation capabilities to any X-Plane aircraft. I strongly recommend it.

As an avid X-Plane user, I was excited to come across this application, which, at the very least, eliminates the need for going back and forth between flying and the Local Map—which interrupts the whole flying experience. Seeing where you are "in space" makes flying much easier (especially VFR airport patterns where you can see your relationship to the runways). But so much more beyond that: multiple choices for maps (love the ability to switch easily between Sectionals and Hi and Low IFR charts), overlays, weather, and navigation aids. Zoom in for airport diagrams—great for taxiing. DropBox integration allows easy loading of X-Plane .fms files for plotting flight plans. The only thing on my wish list is pop-up approach plates, but that's asking for the moon. Best of all—great support. Fast, thorough, thoughtful, and personal responses from the developer.
Sim Doc's Review of Fswidgets IgmaphdReviewed on 9/16/19 2:06 PM
Geo-referencing works well but some charts are woefully out of date (see Phoenix TAC at time of this writing) and it is hard to tell what the current version of a given chart is. Having a magnification size indicator, and a distance ruler would be useful.
