Description* WARNING: READ CAREFULLY. THIS IS NOT A FULL GAME, IT IS AN INTERFACE FOR FLIGHTGEAR FLIGHT SIMULATOR. YOU WILL NEED A PC RUNNING FLIGHTGEAR TO USE THIS APPLICATION *
If you run FlightGear on a single screen of your PC, getting lost is easy and moving the view from the horizon to the control panel may be dangerous or not comfortable. This is when FlightGearMap comes in as a handy tool.
FlightGearMap for Android is an application similar to Atlas for PC (http://atlas.sourceforge.net/). It is a companion for FlightGear flight simulator: FlightGearMap shows the current position on your plane on a map, as well as some useful controls such as airspeed, RPM or altimeter. Set your tablet/mobile phone on top of your yoke and you won't need to change the view of your main screen any more. Or at least, not as often as you used to.
You can calibrate and configure some of the instruments using the touch screen: NAV1, NAV2, altimeter and switches. Warning: rotate your finger around the center of the instrument, not the knob!
FlightGearMap is still under development and deciding which features/instruments are the best options for the simplified panel. Some minor bugs and crashes are expected, but it should be pretty usable and stable. Please, report any ideas, bugs and comments to: http://www.flightgear.org/forums/viewtopic.php?f=31&t=16136
