Aside Posted on Updated on
I’m looking for some help translating the application. I’m looking for help to translate into Russian, German, and other languages. There is a small amount of text in the application so it should only take a few minutes to help out. Unfortunatly google translate is of no use with the app. If you know one of these languages and have a few minutes please fill out this form. Thanks so much
The latest trial version update with 7 inch tablet support is not rolling out now. I’m already seeing it on the US Play Store. This is a big update from the previous version. I had not updated the trial version since version 1.7 so this not only includes the 7 inch version but also all of the features of 1.8 and 1.9.
For those of you waiting to try the application before buying I have some good news. I am in the process of testing the trial version and will hopefully be updating it tonight. The trial has all of the features of FlightMap 2.1 with a 5 minute time limit. Once the time limit is hit all server updates cease. You can get another 5 minutes by backing out of the application and reconnecting to the server.
I have fixed an issue that cropped up on the original Nexus 7 (2012) tablet and likely and tablet that shares that resolution. The follow aircraft would be cut off and off center. This is now fixed and should be available on all tablets within the next 24 hours. Sorry for the issue.
I also updated all of the follow me aircraft sizes to improve display on all devices.
FlightMap 2.0 has been released to the Google Play Store with 7 inch tablet support. 7 inch tablet support is by far the most requested feature and I’m excited to release this version.
FlightMap is a second screen GPS style application that works with FSX and Prepar3D to plot your simulated location and flight plans on Google Maps.
The trial version will be updated within the next 2 weeks to the latest version as well. I’m so excited to be releasing this version and I really hope you all love it.
Turns out there are a few different aspect ratios for 7 inch tablets. Picked up an Asus memopad to verify support. It’s got the worst screen I have ever seen on a tablet but it was cheap.
Things are coming along very nicely.
Here are some of the first images of FlightMap running on 7 inch tablets. I’ve been able to implement this all in the same application so 1 app will work for 7 inch tablets and above. It’s working really well but I think the buttons on the bottom are a little to small. I’m going to look at removing one or two of the buttons and that should give me some room to play with to make larger hit areas. Overall thought really nice. To maximize screen I did decide to remove the gauges. I’ll be doing a dedicated application just for the gauges in the next few months
Work has begun on the 7 inch tablet support. I have a Nexus 7 in hand and I’ve already reformatted the launch screen to work with it. I hope to have more information in the coming days.
The latest version is now released and should be rolling out to full version users over the next 24 to 28 hours. I’ll be updating the trial version sometime in the next week or so. FlightMap 1.9 does require FlightConnect be updated to the latest version and users will be notified on upgrade of FlightMap of this fact. I believe this is a great update to the app and full FSX and P3D flight plan support has been requested quite often and I’m extremely happy to be able to update the app with it.
Now that 1.9 is released I have ordered a Nexus 7 so hopefully I will have that in my hands this coming week. Version 2.0 will be the 7 inch tablet version.
