Any way to see charts other than viewing PDFs?

So, because I know the Dev and also made some advices regarding the use, it’s like a copy of your whole desktop and web browser. Every application on your computer can be mirrored as far as I know.

@Nerbulus Yes. Open the “Flight Plan” tab and click on the hamburger icon in the top left corner. There you have more options.

@EpicPrimus FSFlightBag2020 is a standalone app that does not mirror any other app. It has everything it needs built-in, like the web browser.

Flight plan tab? I don’t have one.

Here is a screenshot of the Flight Plan tab and the hamburger button:

Many thanks.

@AwesomeBlack533 I’m looking forward to integrating the Navigraph API in FSFlightBag2020 :wink:

Would you consider a future feature such that I could run it on a client machine, a la LNM.
If so, I too would be interested.

Yes, depending on the interest in the app (amount of likes, downloads, comments), I’ll work on a platform agnostic version.

For anyone interested in this, please leave a like :heart:

Yes. Completely understand the need to estimate the demand before you put the time in.
Appreciate the candid and expeditious feedback.

Just found this tool. Great work @AmbitiousPilots ! Is there a way to integrate this into the in-game toolbar so that I can use this in VR?

Yes there is. However, I’m currently waiting for the Flight Sim SDK to major a little more in regards of WebAssembly (WASM), which is used to create the gauges, etc.

Currently, it’s not stable enough to display PDF files and browse the Web directly.

Hmm, I was just about to buy Sim EFB from Just Flight’s shop - looking for info and reviews and stumbled upon this thread. Now I’m having second thoughts!

Have to give this a try first. Thanks.

Will it be workable in VR?

And be independent of the toolbar ?

Toolbar boxes are shimmery and sometimes unreadable, where as cockpit PFD and MFD remain clear and readable.

Time until available - estimate?

If you can get the navigraph flight planner and charts in your program, and it works without shimmering in VR, you got your first user here.
