GPSout with Garmin Pilot (iPad)


Recommended Posts

Is it possible to use the GPSout feature in conjunction with the X-Plane connectivity in-built with Garmin pilot. Regards, George

 

Nothing of mine works with X-Plane. I don't know if someone else has done a similar feature -- maybe check with the XPUIPC author?

Hi Pete, Apologies, I didn't make it clear. I am actually using P3D with FSUIPC, but I am trying to output the GPS data with GPSout to work with the new X-Plane feature in Garmin Pilot (It uses your Wi-Fi to connect to X-Plane on port number 49002). Can I transmit the same data with FSUIPC to trick the app into thinking I am using X-Plane? I managed to connect Sky Demon (which has the X-Plane mode) using a program called FlightSimGPS but Garmin Pilot doesn't want to know about it! Thanks, George

The output from the GPSout facility in FSUIPC, which is configurable in any case, is standard GPS output -- either a selection of NMEA sentences, or "Aviation" format. And the output is always to a serial port (COMn). You link to your GPS using a serial cable, possible with an USB adapter and appropriate driver.

 

In other words the GPout facility just emulates a real GPS. So any device which can accept such input should work fine with it.

 

But then you say your device "uses your Wi-Fi to connect to X-Plane on port number 49002", then I'm sorry, but there's no such Ethernet transmission facilities in FSUIPC. You could write your own as a Lua plug-in, but there's not a ready-made one.

Thanks for that Pete. I tried this neat little Lua Plug-in (http://forum.simflight.com/topic/72742-interfacing-to-foreflight-mobile/#entry448797) but Garmin Pilot still refuses to cooperate, X-Plane must use different coding to the Plug-in. Back to flying the old school way with no gps then I guess! Thanks, George

Hello. This may help if you are trying to send serial port data through TCP/IP. Many years ago I was doing the same thing and I found a free software called HW Virtual Port. I used v1.25 and my setup was as follows:

 

PC1: using Microsoft Flight Simulator with a GPS output:
IP=10.0.0.2, VSP: Client, IP=10.0.0.4, Ports=23 [√]=HW VSP works as the TCP server.

PC2: using Anywheremap XP as the GPS input:
IP=10.0.0.4, VSP: Server, IP=10.0.0.2, Ports=23 [  ]=HW VSP works as the TCP server.

 

Of course, I must tell you, that was using Windows XP. I have no idea what Windows Vista, and onward will do...

Hello,

Here is a software called XOFSX2GP that makes FSX to communicate with an Ipad running Garmin Pilot. Follow the link : http://www.erlapplication.fr/

I tested this with the Demo Version and my Gamin Pilot (iPad Air 2). Worked well. Will buy this tonight. Excellent piece of Software. Smooth & easy installation.
