Ratings and Reviews
Useless without database
Requires a Jeppesen account. I use Garmin, so don’t have Jeppesen. I wanted to install the sim to compare UI with GTN-750 to make a buying decision. Unfortunately, not possible. Garmin simulator for PCs just work by comparison.
Download the available databases and it exactly duplicates a IFD440 or 540. I taught myself how to use the IFD540 while the actual GPS was being installed in my airplane with this app. Reading the IFD pilot guide is a must. But being able to actually simulate what you are reading is the next best thing to using it while in flight. This app allows you to do that while learning how to use the IFD.
Works as promoted with IFD100 app
This app simulates the panel mounted IFD4XX/IFD5XX device.
Use the IFD100 on a sound iPad to “remotely” program the panel device as you would in the cockpit.
WARNING: Using a second iPad uses one of the available subscription devices.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
