X Plane 11 GNS 530 with Navigraph

Post by Tuckster » Mon May 04, 2020 8:00 pm

I have a subscription (both) and have downloaded the FMS updater and actually updated X Plane ... I simply need to know how to have the 530 info show on my moving map ( I run charts on my ipad). I need any flight plan and especially changes to the flight plan show on my moving maps in Navigraph. Is this doable ???
I know simbrief will show on my moving map but I really want my 530 to connect to Navigraph some way.

Hi Glenn,

Moving map uses Simlink running on your FS machine to send your FS aircraft coordinates to our server. Then when you access Charts via iPad, Desktop or Cloud, the location of your aircraft is placed on the chart.

There is no interaction between Charts with Simlink and the the onboard avionics. You will get moving map as long as you are in an aircraft of any description in FS from Trike to large jets.

Any flight plans created in Charts can be updated and the Chart will update accordingly. This has no connection with 530 onboard.

Cheers
Ian

Thanks for the reply. I think I understand now. 1 last question. I entered a flight plan in Little NavMap and it did update the gns 530 in X Plane. Any chance I can get that to sync with my Navigraph charts on my ipad ??
