iOS iPad Navigation
The FSWidgets iGMapHD app turns your iPad into a moving map for your desktop flight simulator!
(See iGMap for the iPhone/iPod touch Version)
Do you own Flight Simulator X, Flight Simulator 2004, X-Plane or Aerofly FS 2?
This app 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.
It connects to the flight simulator via our free FSWidgets Network Pack which can be downloaded from the FSWidgets website (http://fswidgets.com/shop/network.php).
iGMapHD saves valuable screen real-estate on your desktop by using your iPad to display your aircraft's current position.

* The OFM series are implemented as transparent overlays, drawn over the base map and depict airspace data for that country. More countries may be added as they become available.
Added - New Base Maps
We have re-organised this menu and added a new set of world-wide base maps. Some of the new maps (Road series) are retina-enabled so users of devices with a retina screen will notice the maps are very sharp.
In this department there is actually a slight reduction in the total number, but we have consolidated the collection into a more useful list by removing the ones that our customers were just not using much anymore, based on the stats over the past year.
Added - Map Scale
This one was slipped in via the mapping engine but the eagle-eyed among you may have noticed a little box in the bottom left hand corner that displays the map scale as 1:500,000 or 1:250,000 and so on. We include it for no other reason than it's cool to have and to know when your map display is at the same zoom level as the WAC (1:1,000,000), Sectional (1:500,000) or TAC (1:250,000) scale.
