XMapsy – The EFB-Connector for FSX / P3D / Microsoft Flightsimulator 2020

The new XMapsy V3 – connect your flightsimulator FSX / P3D / Microsoft Flightsimulator 2020 ( MSFS2020 ) with a lot of electronic flight bag or aviation – software on IOS and Android devices – now with ADS-B / GDL90 support – see AI traffic in your EFB app!

News: 01.09.2020 Version V3.1.2 with support for Air Navigation Pro released

Use XMapsy now also with Microsoft Flightsimulator 2020 !!

MSFS 2020 users: please select SIMCONNECT as preferred technology in XMapsy-Settings. XMapsy V3 owners should download latest version (V 3.1.x) from their Simmarket account – You don’t have to buy the software again.

Important note about the IOS 14 :  Read hints on the XMapsy-support page – not all EFB-Apps are already IOS14-ready !

I have successfully tested the following with IOS14: ForeFlight, AvPlanEFB, OZRunways, WingX Pro, AirNavigation Pro, iFly GPS, Garmin Pilot, FltPlan Go, Stratus Insight and with a workaround (see XMApsy Support-Page) also SkyDemon, EasyVFR 3 and EasyVFR 4.

I had no success with Airmate, CloudAhoy and FlyQ EFB (as of September 26, 2020). So better not to update to IOS14 if you use one of these apps!

If you previously purchased XMAPSY V2 at simMarket, you are entitled to the special upgrade price of EUR 5.95 incl. VAT (5.00 excl. VAT) only!

This helpful tool sends data of the own simulator aircraft and AI traffic information over your local network to various EFB solutions.

In addition to the XPlane message format, the new version V3 now also includes an ADS-B simulation using the GDL90 format.

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, P3D or MSFS 2020. 

FSUIPC or SimConnect can be used to connect to the flight simulator. If you prefer FSUIPC then make sure that the appropriate version of FSUIPC for your simulator is installed (free version).
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.
