GeoTrans is an Android tool that allows your Android cell phone's GPS signal to be relayed to your tablet, in case the tablet happens to be one without an internal GPS. Saves you the purchase of a standalone GPS receiver! As to usage, Jörg states:
  • Have GeoTrans installed on a smartphone, and EasyVFR on a tablet.
  • Get the smart phone in tethering mode (making it a mobile WIFI hotspot) and connect the tablet to it.
  • In Settings | About | Status you can now see the tablet's IP address.
  • Startup GeoTrans, set the IP address to the tablet's and the port to 11000.
  • Push [Start] and wait a minute to let the smartphone get a fix. EasyVFR then will use this fix.

XConn is a nifty tool that allows you to connect PocketFMS to Microsoft's Flight Simulator X (for connecting to previous versions you'll need the above GPSOut by Peter Dawson). Extensive user documentation is enclosed. New features in this version of xConn are:
  • Output over network using UDP/TCP protocol
    (Rob used it to test the upcoming iPad and Android versions of PocketFMS!),
  • Auto connect to FSX if it's not running when xConn is launched,
  • New settings dialogue.

EasySim is a very easy way to get acquainted with PocketFMS! It generates NMEA output based on your keystrokes (setting speed, altitude and direction), which PocketFMS interprets as being received from a GPS receiver. Documentation is enclosed. New features in EasySim are:
  • Data output over the network using UPD protocol for smart devices, see PocketFMS Simulator with EasyVFR & AirspaceAVOID
  • Re-fly a previously recorded track in various formats, merge tracks,
  • Dynamic satellite data, i.e. sats visible from current position, instead of fake sat data,
  • New settings dialogue.

xUDPNMEA is a plug-in for X-Plane 10 to test-drive PocketFMS / EasyVFR. Similar to the xConn tool for Microsoft FS but in a very basic version; it just sends NMEA sentences GPRMC, GPGSA and GPGGA continuously in a 1 second interval, no support for serial ports since that's an option in X-Plane's output. IP-address and port can be set in a widget and are stored in a configuration file for later usage.

PocketFMS UI is a tool that allows you to graphically redesign the PocketFMS User Interface files - without having any knowledge of XML at all! Just drag and drop buttons and assign functions to them, and PocketFMS UI creates the XML file you need! No installation is required, simply download & run. Changes for this version are:
  • FIX: Added functionality to stencil button context menu Remove.

X-Plane to GPS is a quick and easy means to link EasyVFR for Android to your X-Plane flight simulator - well worth the few pennies they ask for!
