  1. Press release from Michael De Feyter I am happy to announce the long-awaited release of iFMS 2.0. This latest release transforms what was already a great product into something spectacular. Apart from the original functionality, which consisted of a “Boeing style” Flight Management System, a Navigation Display and an LNAV/VNAV engine, iFMS now also incorporates a Primary Flight Display, various EICAS displays accommodating both twin and four engine aircraft and a fully functional MCP module. On top of that iFMS now supports multiple devices being connected to a single flight simulator. This means you can program the FMC on one device and all other devices connected to the same flight simulator will sync and display the programmed route and all associated information. With the addition of the features above iFMS can be used to build relatively cheap, simple, but nevertheless, very realistic, “Boeing style” home cockpit. All flight related information can now be displayed on as little as 2 or 3 tablets and/or phones, which means your flight simulator computer screen(s) can be fully used to display the outside view. For example, a simple setup could consist of: - a Tablet in front in Landscape mode displaying the PFD and NAV displays side by side, - a second tablet to the right in portrait mode displaying the primary and secondary EICAS displays on top of each other - a third smaller tablet or phone (configured as Master) positioned within arm’s reach beside the pilot displaying the FMC/MCP module. As a home cockpit building solution, iFMS is still an order of magnitude cheaper than comparable professional products such as Project Magenta and, second hand Android/iOS devices that will run iFMS can be picked up for very little money these days, which means the dream of building your own home cockpit can now become a reality at a fraction of the cost. Of course iFMS can still be used in its original form where only a single device is used to display the FMC screen and/or the NAV display. As before, iFMS can be configured for use with almost any of your favorite Flight Simulator\'s standard or add-on aircraft, a number of default aircraft are included but you can easily make your own and download them to your iFMS either through iTunes on iOS devices or through file explorer on Android devices. (Please note that it is not advised to use iFMS in combination with complex add-on aircraft such as PMDG or Level-D, since these aircraft already have a complex FMC/MCP system of their own which will conflict with iFMS) Features Summary: - Realistic Flight Planning/Tracking/Navigation - Boeing style Flight Management System - Boeing style Primary Flight Display - Boeing style HSI or NAV Display - Various 2 or 4 engine EICAS Displays - LNAV & VNAV calculation and MCP programming - LNAV/VNAV engine to control the aircraft autopilot - Configurable aircraft - Use your own created aircraft files - Loading and saving of flight plans - Compatible with Apple iPhone, iPod and iPad - Single portrait or side by side landscape view - Updatable navdata through Navigraph Compatibility: iFMS will run on the following devices: - Android Phone/Tablet with at least 512mb of RAM - Apple iPad (2nd generation or later) - Apple iPad Mini, or - Apple iPhone (4th generation or later) - Apple iPod Touch (4th generation or later) iFMS is compatible to run with: - Microsoft Flight Simulator 9 (using FSUIPC) - Microsoft Flight Simulator X - Prepar3D 2.X - Prepar3D 3.X - X-Plane 9 (Windows only) - X-Plane 10 (Windows and OSX) - Stand-alone (possibly GPS driven if available) More information: For more information, instructions, screenshots and much more, visit the iFMS website: http://www.ifms-fs.com/
  2. Hello again all, I realize it has been quite a while since my last update. Things have not been standing still, they just have been progressing much slower than I hoped, I have no real excuse other than saying my personal life came in the way. With the help of many you I have been able to identify and resolve issues in the current version 1.1.4 / 1.1.5 available on the Apple and Goodle App Stores. Some of the Android users have been receiving updated “beta” versions for testing as well. I’d like to thank you all for your great help. Many of you have been asking about the progress made on version 2.0 which will include a PFD screen and EICAS. Well, again things have not been standing still but I was hoping to have it released by now. It is close but unfortunately not quite ready for release yet. I can tell you it will be worth the wait once released. I’ve been testing version 2.0 myself quite a lot recently to iron out the issues and I must say it is quite enjoyable to be flying with a “home” cockpit built out of 2 tablets and an iPhone. The way I have mine currently set up I have my 10” iPad3 in landscape mode in front of me displaying the PFD & NAV displays side-by-side. I have my 7” Nexus tablet on the right of that in portrait mode displaying the upper and lower EICAS displays. Finally, below the Nexus, I have my iPhone4 in portrait mode displaying the FMC. Everything pretty much laid out as it would be sitting in the captain’s seat in most airliners. Off course it is entirely configurable which devices show which display(s), hence many different configurations using more or less devices are imaginable. Note that iFMS does not require a whole lot of processing power to run, most older iOS/Android tablets/phones will work fine as long as you have sufficient storage space available for storing the navdata (be aware it does NOT run on the iPad 1st generation though). iFMS 2.0 will therefore make it quite affordable for any simmer now to build a simple but yet very usable and realistic home cockpit using just a couple of (older model) iOS/Android tablets and/or phones which can be found second hand these days for a nickel and a dime. I will be taking some pictures of my setup and some snapshots of the new displays as soon as possible to give you all a bit of a preview. Hopefully I will have news about a potential release date shortly after that as well. Michael De Feyter iFMS www.ifms-fs.com
  3. iFMS for Android has now been released After a successful launch on the Apple App Store in June earlier this year, iFMS has now been released for Android devices on the Google Play Store. Along with this release for Android, a new version 1.1 for iPhone/iPod/iPad will also be released in the coming days. iFMS provides you with a nearly fully functional "Boeing style" Flight Management System and HSI display on your Android device, iPhone, iPad (Mini) or iPod Touch, to make your Flight Simulator experience a more realistic one. Apart from all the standard flight planning and tracking (LNAV and VNAV) functionality, all the more complex functions such as hold programming, custom waypoint programming by coordinates, heading/distance calculation or waypoints radial/intersection calculation and abeam route waypoint calculations are available as well, along with much, much more. The HSI display is has a MAP and PLAN mode and was developed appear as realistic as possible, the programmed route, the waypoints, the fixes, the navaids, the airports etc. are all programmed to be displayed using the standard symbolization rules of the industry. iFMS can be configured for use with almost any of your favorite Flight Simulator's standard or add-on aircraft, 6 default aircraft configuration files are included but you can easily create your own following the tutorial available from the iFMS website. New in version 1.1: This is the first release available on Android as well as iOS platforms. A much desired feature that is now included is the LNAV/VNAV engine. Apart from using iFMS for flight planning/tracking/navigation, with this new engine iFMS is now also capable of controlling the aircraft's autopilot to fly the programmed LNAV/VNAV route. This release also comes with 6 default aircraft configuration files, a 737-800, 747-400, 757-200, 767-300ER, 777-200LR and a PA-28, but you can easily create your own following the tutorial and examples available on the iFMS website so iFMS can be used with almost any flight simulator standard and most add-on aircraft. Graphics have been significantly improved since the original iOS release in June earlier this year. Features summary: - Realistic Flight Planning/Tracking/Navigation - Realistic Boeing style Flight Management System - Realistic Boeing style HSI display - LNAV & VNAV calculation - An LNAV/VNAV engine to control your aircraft's autopilot - Single portrait or side by side landscape view - Configurable aircraft, 6 default included - Use your own created aircraft files - Loading and saving of flight plans - Import flight plans and aircraft from your PC through iTunes - Updatable navigation data through Navigraph Please visit http://www.ifms-fs.com for more details about iFMS.
