Update 8/10/20: Users can consider upgrading all devices to iOS14.
Recently Microsoft released a new version of their flight simulator, MSFS2020 and we’ve fielded quite a few questions about its use with AvPlan EFB. Here are a few frequently asked questions and answers.
Does AvPlan EFB work with MSFS2020?
Yes it is known to work, on both Android and iOS. You will need to use extra software to make the two packages work together (which is no different to how older Flight Simulator versions worked). The options are FSUIPC or XMaspy. There are current reports of lagging issues with FSUIPC but XMaspy is reported to work well. From reports, XMaspy is the easiest to get installed and operational.
Does AvSoft Australia support AvPlan EFB connecting to MSFS2020
We do not officially support any flight simulator software, but MSFS2020, FSX and X-Plane all use the same mechanism we use internally to test our software. We provide assistance to customers on a best effort basis only.
Do you provide discounts to flight simulator users?
At the present time no special discounts are available.
AvPlan EFB for iOS version 7.9.7 is now available from the App Store. In this release we have improved the flight plan interface to Garmin Avionics (via Garmin Pilot). Additionally there are fixes for some flight planning issues and an issue with black boxes being printed on the nav log when the device is in Dark Mode.
