Will the moving Map work with an iPad

Post by Chris Catalano » Wed Sep 20, 2017 3:41 am

Hi Everyone:

I am considering buying an iPad. If I get a subscription to Charts, will sim Connect work with an iPad so I can see a moving map as advertised? And will sim-connect work if my Flight Sim FSX is installed on a PC and sim-connect is on a Mac device (an iPad)?

Thanks in advance.

Sincerely,

Chris Catalano

Hi Chris,

Charts iPad runs on iPad running IOS 10 or later. Charts Cloud runs on IOS 9.3.5 or later.

You need to run Simlink on the PC where you are running your FS.

Simlink sends the position data from your FS to the servers which in turn places the magenta icon on charts you access under Charts iPad or Charts Cloud.

Cheers

So given the above, which product would be a better fit for me... Charts iPad or Charts Cloud? (Or does it make absolutely no difference whatsoever?)

Thank you for all the info

Sincerely,

Chris Catalano

Hi Chris,

There is not much between them. Charts iPad is designed for the iPad and requires an install. Charts Cloud uses a browser, I have given instructions here to make a desktop icon to maximise this.

I suggest trying both and seeing which suits your purpose.
