In X-Plane, enable sending of data:

  • X-Plane 9:

      • Enter the IP address of your iPad/iPhone in the “IP for Data Output” section (set (or leave) the port as 49002)
    • Click Settings > Data Input and Output.
    • Select the Data Set tab
    • Tick only the first checkbox in the row labelled ’20 …… lat, lon, altitude’.
    • Tick only the first checkbox in the row labelled ’21 …… loc, vel, dist travelled’.
    • Close the window.

    • Enter your device IP address, and make sure the port number is 49002.
    • Press the Done button when complete.

AvPlan EFB will now receive location information from X-Plane.

Enabling Microsoft Flight Simulator/ Prepar3D interface

Connecting AvPlan EFB to Microsoft Flight Simulator or Prepar3D requires additional modules and settings need to be completed before being able to connect. This procedure is beyond the scope of this particular manual. For more detailed instructions, download the AvPlan EFBFSX Connection Guide for further guidance on this process:
http://www.avplan-efb.com/ext/AvPlan_FSX_Connection_Guide_v1-0.pdf

Follow the same instructions/settings for Flight Simulator X as for Prepar3D, as Prepar3D is built from the core of FSX.
