iGMap - FSWidgets Moving Map
The FSWidgets iGMap app turns your iPhone or iPod touch into a moving map for your desktop flight simulator!
(See iGMapHD for the iPad Version)
Do you own Flight Simulator X, Flight Simulator 2004 or X-Plane 9/10?
iGMap works with the three most popular desktop simulators on the market today, giving you a hand-held moving map to aid navigation, especially on simulated VFR flights.
iGMap connects to the flight simulator via our free FSWidgets Network Pack which can be downloaded from the FSWidgets website (http://fswidgets.com/shop/igmap.php).
iGMap saves valuable screen real-estate on your desktop by using your iPhone or iPod Touch to display your aircraft's current position.
