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 *

FlightGearMap for Android 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.

If you find FlightGearMaop useful, consider buying the donate version!

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
