This helpful tool sends data of own FSX or P3D / P3DV4 simulator aircraft and AI traffic information over your local network (UDP port 49002) to various EFB solutions that support AHRS-Data-Input from XPlane.
XMAPSY runs in the background and does not influence your simulator configuration. Once launched, it will only be visible as an icon in the tray and automatically connect to the FSX or P3D.
The Installation of Peter Dowson’s FSUIPC4 or FSUIPC5 module (free version) is required. You can get it from http://www.schiratti.com/dowson.html.
Real pilots can now use their flight apps on the flight simulator.
But even simulator pilots can use a variety of professional aviation apps for moving maps, flight planning, synthetic vision or weather.
XMAPSY is successfully tested on iPad/iPhone and Android devices with the following products:
- Garmin Pilot
- WingX Pro
- Flight Planner
- AvPlan EFB
(All trademarks referenced herein are the property of their respective owners.)
You can test the tool in a fully functional version (see the download-section) with no time restrictions. Only the flight areas are limited to a wide area around EDDC (Dresden-Germany), NZAA (Auckland- New Zealand) – and KLAS (Las Vegas – United States).

17.03.2019: New in Version 2.3:
– The heading is now calculated by default based on the change in position as in the real GPS device. In the settings, this behavior can be deactivated and xmapsy again uses the course provided by the simulator, which depends on the wind conditions and leads to inaccuracies in the representation of the track line.
