A major update

January 16, 2016
Version 2.2.0 for both PFD&MFD are available on App Store now. This is a major update. From time to time, users are complaining about the reliability of the connection between the PFD&MFD. That was something out of my control since I was using Apple's GameKit to make the connection. In this update, the connection is changed to pure wifi connection via IP network. It makes the connection much more reliable and efficient. There are also supports for new aircrafts(C172S/C172R/C206H). Users can fly the most popular Cessna 172SP with full support in the apps now.

G1000Bridge(X) v1.4 is released

November 5, 2015
Auto-reconnect functionality is added to the newest G1000Bridge(X), so you won't need to switch to the program/plugin to hit the button to get connected again once the connection between the G1000 app and FSX/Prepar3D/X-Plane is lost or you need to swith to other apps on iPad occasionally.

About the connections reliability

October 28, 2015
For a long time, there are users complaining about the connectivity in the app. They lost connections either with Prepar3D/FSX/X-Plane or with the other half of G1000(PFD/MFD). My recent research shows that all those are caused by the reliability of the wifi network. It's not a matter of the quality of the wifi signal(of course bad signals always lead to low network reliability), but the load on the network, in other words, how busy the network is. Your may have a very good signal on the wifi connection, you may even downloading or watching HD movies online without any sluggishness, but you may experience continuous connection lost in the G1000 apps. That is because the network band width is occupied by other applications that the app cannot transimit or receive data frequently enought to keep the app act smoothly or even lose the connection. The key to keep the connection is not how fast the communication is(like watching online movies), but how continuous it is. So keep other applications from occupying the network band width is important to avoid loss of connection for the G1000 apps.
I will make modifications to the brdige and the app, adding some auto reconnecting function to compensate the lost of connection when under such wifi condition. Please sitck around for the updates. But remember, the key to ensure a smoothly experience is to reduce network load.

A word on Windows 10 and X-Plane v10.41

October 26, 2015
Recently I've been asked whether the PFD can work with the latest X-Plane v10.41 and Windows 10. After having tested, it's now confirmed that the plugins for X-Plane run well under both Mac OS X and Windows 10 with the latest X-Plane v10.41. However, users running X-Plane in 64-bit mode under Windows 10 need to install the 64-bit VC++ 2010 Redistributable package to make the plugin work properly. Links are provided on the download page.

Prepar3D tested

October 26, 2015
For a long time I've been asked whether the PFD can be connected with Prepar3D. Now it's confirmed that the answer is yes. Just use the same G1000Bridge for FSX to connect the PFD with Prepar3D. But you may need to install SimConnection manually from the Prepar3D folder, find it in redist\Interface\FSX-SP2-XPACK\retail\lib.

A prototype of G1000 bezel is being built for the G1000 apps. It's not easy to squeeze an iPad into a "G1000". But...we'll see.

Buy PFD&MFD apps together with 20% off

December 3, 2014
PFD and MFD apps are available in a bundle with a price of 20% off.

Cute, isn't?

November 14, 2014

Update's coming soon

October 25, 2014
For those who have purchased the MFD app, I really appreciate your patient and support. The MFD has some issues regarding memory usage that could cause it crashing so easily. For months, I was struggling with those issues. It seems that it’s really hard to gain both performance and memory at the same time on such a mobile device running such a complicated program. I was stuck in looking for solutions to the issues for quite a while. Finally I’ve got a break through recently. By recoding the whole data engine, the memory usage is now well controlled. Further more, the app now has a much better performance. I’m working hard to make it done. It won’t be long to bring you the update. Please stay tuned.

Enjoy the MFD

March 5, 2014
First, I want to thank you all for have been waiting so long for the MFD. After one year development, it finally comes to the AppStore. You can now install the PFD and MFD apps to two iPads, make them work together, or even connect them to FSX/X-Plane(FSX/X-Plane connection can be only made through the PFD). Enjoy it!

Almost there

Febuary 24, 2014
It have been quite a while since last time I renewed this site. I keep receiving emails from customers asking for the release date of the MFD app. Well, if everything goes well, it'll be on the AppStore very soon. Stay tuned.

Some words about the MFD

May 23, 2013

For months, I've been working on the other half of G1000, the MFD. Things are shaping up well, but the work is tremendous. So it will take another few months at least. Some information about the MFD:

1. The operations of MFD could involve huge calculation, so it'll be another app other than being included in the current app which emulates the PFD.

2. It will connect and communicate with PFD(the current app) via bluetooth, forming a complete G1000.

Finally, the terminal procedures work

December 11, 2012
It's been more than half an year since the last update. It was really a hard work to get the terminal procedures work. Thanks god I made it finally. The new version(2.0.1) of this app is available to download on the App Store already. Hope you all enjoy it as well as the new navigation database included which also took me a lot of time.

Working on terminal procedures

August 7, 2012
It's been a little while since the last update. I have just finished recompiling the navigation database. Now I'm working on the terminal procedures. Some screenshots here:

Version 1.4 released

May 22, 2012
After sim connection has been add to the G1000 simulator, many users have reported that they feel inconvenience that all the control values are sent from the G1000 simulator to FSX/X-Plane and there is no chance to set values such as NAV frequencies using FSX or X-Plane. Well, it was designed like that. But as you asked, you have it in v1.4, duplex data transfer. Now most of the control values can be set in either way. Remember to download the latest version of G1000Bridge(X) to get this work. And there is a new way of displaying G1000 panel included in this update. The screen will shrink a little and a complete panel will show up. Comparing to the original overlay side-panels. The new panel view will give you a neat look and let the panel clear of the display area.

What's next?

April 17, 2012
Well, it has been two months since the G1000 sim released in the Apple App Store for the first time. Thank you all for buying my app, giving me your suggestions, rating my app and writing reviews. Those are the most valuable payback of the harding working for the past 10 months and are the biggest courage for me to continue doing it. Now I have done almost everything I could for the PFD for now. We have both FSX and X-Plane connections, with which I hope you can have some fun when flying in flight simulators as well as using it for some IFR practising. I will keep improving this app and add as more functionalities as I can. But it comes to a point that the navigation database I use can not support much further development. So, I'm planning to re-build the navigation database. Although I haven't find the data sources completely meet the requirements yet, I will try to merge the data from different sources and re-organize the data for using in my program. This will take a tremendous work, including re-coding the program. In this period, there probaly won't be any major updates. But, please, stay with me. As an individual developer, I majorly focus on the coding work, and I hope you guys can help me with promoting it. If you think this app is worth it, please, tell your friends, rate it good, write reviews(in appstore or bbs). I will be deeply grateful and try my best to make this app the greatest.

Here comes the X-Plane connection

April 16, 2012
Here it comes, the X-Plane connection, as many users asked. Now the FSX connection has been changed to "Sim connection", which can communicate with FSX as well as X-Plane. Also, you need to download G1000BridgeX, an X-Plane plugin to handle the data transfer between the G1000 sim and X-Plane. Connections to FSX and X-Plane are working almost the same way. Refer to the "Quick Start" in the app to get step-by-step instructions.
Versions supported: X-Plane v9.40 or later

FSX connection available

March 20, 2012
This simulator now can run as an instrument for FSX using the built-in FSX connection. You also need to download G1000Bridge and run it on the PC to enable this simulator to communicate with FSX. While running as an instrument for FSX, environmental data is received from FSX, while COMM/NAV/ADF frequencies, transponder and altimeter setting are controlled by this simulator. Autopilot is also provided by this simulator to control the flight in FSX, so you can use the G1000's full functionality of flight planning and flight director modes.
Note: Currently, only FSX with SP2 and FSX Acceleration are supported by G1000Bridge
