The FSWidgets iGMapHD app turns iPad into a hi-res moving map for your desktop flight simulator!

(See iGMap for the iPhone/iPod touch Version)

Do you own Flight Simulator X, Flight Simulator 2004 or X-Plane 9/10?

iGMapHD 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.

Connects to the flight simulator via our free FSWidgets Network Pack which can be downloaded from the FSWidgets website.

Saves valuable screen real-estate on your desktop by using your iPad to display your aircraft's current position.
