By MGJ Interactive
Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
“X-Mapper Pro” is a helper application for X-Plane flight simulator. Connecting to a computer running X-Plane makes your iPhone/iPad work as a useful flight-assistance device including map tracker, flight yoke and full-equipped avionics panel.
*This application requires full or demo version of X-Plane 9 or 10 for computer (Mac/Windows/Linux). CANNOT used with X-Plane for iPhone/iPad.
***X-PLANE 10.22 NOTICE*** Current version of X-Mapper Pro won't correctly establish a connection with X-Plane 10.22 or later. If you have gotten a trouble along with X-Plane update, once reset net connections from the action menu, set up the net connection as usual, THEN check “IP of data receiver” on “Data” tab and enter IP address of your device. We are working at a new update to deal with this issue and sorry for inconvenience.
*“X-Mapper Lite,” the free reduced edition, is also available. Please try it if you only need the map tracker feature without flight path.
The location and heading of the simulated aircraft will be displayed in the map with an orange icon when settings completed and network connection established. As “Pro” edition bonus feature, the flight path is also drawn on the map as orange lines. Other map tracker features are as ones with “X-Mapper Lite.”
Touching and holding on the white slider activates motion sensor that allows you to control your aircraft like as 3-axis joystick. It has following features:
–Controlling the aileron and the elevator by the tilt of your device
–Controlling the rudder by the slider for taxiing and crosswind takeoff/landing
–Releasing the slider disables the motion sensor and maintains trim-neutral
–Auto-calibrated elevator allows you comfortable tilt-operation
The motion sensor is enabled only while touched on, so you may let your device down anytime without unexpected consequence. It is convenient for auxiliary control in IFR flight.
With the black slider, you can control the throttle as well as watch the auto-throttle feedback. This smart controller allows you fine tuning of jet engines without expensive dedicated devices. Also, there is a handy reverser button for smooth operation at landing and rejecting takeoff.
The full-equipped avionics panel allows you to operate various radio and autopilot equipment. It is useful especially for IFR operations that was bothering the pilot in busy. Also, you can setup the autobrake even if omitted in some cockpit panels.
Mac/Windows/Linux version of X-Plane 9.69, 10 or later is required to use this application: It can’t be used for iPhone/iPad version of X-Plane. Open “Obtain X-Plane” from the ⓘInfo Menu for ordering the full version or downloading the free Demo version.
Please refer to help message in the application for detailed instructions.
What's New in Version 1.1.3
Version 1.1.3 fixes a glitch in iOS 6 as well as includes several new features.
FIXES iOS 6 GLITCH
Improves the drawing method for the plane icon to avoid a glitch in iOS 6 caused by the new map’s functionality.
Now the device vibrates when you touch either rudder or throttle slider, so that the feedback action gives you sure operations and avoids misoperation in critical situations such as landing.
RESETTING NET CONNECTIONS
Adds “Reset Net Connections” to the Action Menu that allows you to retry the net connections setup. Try it when the application has accidentally stopped working for unknown reason.
