Multi-Engine Support for FlightGauge 1.0

Posted on Updated on

I have had a number of questions about multiple engine support for the first release of FlightGauge. In the first release the application will support one or two engine aircraft. All of the screen shots I have shown to this point show the single engine version. Here are some shots of the multi-engine version. I have also added 2 more Air Speed Indicators. One for 240 knots and one for 280 knots. The application is coming along nicely and soon I will be testing it all out with Prepar3d. If all goes well with that the release is very soon.

FlightGauge 1.0 Released to Beta Testers

Posted on Updated on

FlightGauge is a cockpit panel replacement for almost any of your Flight Simulator aircraft. FlightGauge works on Android 4.0+ tablets between 7 and 10 inches and is designed to work with Microsoft Flight Simulator X (FSX) and Prepar3D.

The 10 inch layout has been moved around a bit. I tried to make it look more like a Cessna 172 with the engine/electrical gauges on the bottom left. I then added two new gauges to the display. VOR1 indicator with glide slope and an ADF indicator. The ADF indicator rotates with the heading so you don’t need to manually adjust it.

For the 7 inch layout I had to add the new gauges in so I added a sliding layer to the display. Slide in or tap on the right side of the screen to show and hide the VOR1 and ADF gauges.

If all goes well FlightGauge may launch this weekend.

FlightGauge for 7 inch tablets released to testers

Posted on Updated on

I have finished up the final 2 gauges and updated all of the 7 inch layouts to support them. The gauges are working really well and the animations are proving to be very smooth. I’ve pushed this version to my testers and I am beginning on the design work for the 10 inch tablets. Due to the amount of space available I may separate the gauges into individual ones. That’s what I’m thinking right now at least 🙂

I’m really excited about this app. It’s coming along really well and I can’t wait to release it. Getting close now.

The first version of FlightGauge is designed for single and dual engine GA aircraft and supports the following indicators:
– Automatic Airspeed Indicator Selection for: 100, 200, 360, 450, 540, 900 knots
– Artificial Horizon Indicator
– Altitude Indicator
– Turn and Bank Indicator
– Heading Indicator
– Vertical speed Indicator
– Left/Right Fuel Indicators
– Manifold Pressure Indicator
– Fuel Flow Indicator
– Oil Temperature Indicator
– Oil Pressure Indicator
– Suction Pressure Indicator
– Electrical Amp Indicator
– Prop RPM Indicator

I have not determined what the price will be for FlightGauge but, like FlightMap, I will be releasing a free 5 minute trial version.

FlightGauge Update

Posted on Updated on

I’ve made some really good progress on FlightGauge and wanted to post a quick update. I’ve got 3 of the 5 new gauges complete and functional. I’ve modified them to be more generic and support more aircraft. I will be supporting dual engine aircraft via 2 needles on the rpm, oil, and fuel flow gauges. It’s been a lot of trial and error to get these 3 gauges complete so I’m hoping the next 2 go quicker. I’m pretty much settled on my 7 inch tablet design. I’ve not yet settled on one for the 10 inch tablets. There is a lot more space on them 🙂

FlightMap: Help with Translations

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

FlightMap Version 2.1 Trial now released on Google Play

Posted on Updated on

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.

FlightMap 2.1 Trial coming soon

Posted on Updated on

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.

FlightMap 2.1 has been pushed to the Play Store.

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.
