5.0 out of 5 stars Great App if you use FS2004 or FSX or X-Plane 31 Jan 2013
By Airbus30B - Published on Amazon.com

When you download this app, go to their website and also download the FSWidgets Network Host. It's free and you need it for your Flight Simulator to communicate with your Kindle.The FSWidgets GMap that you download for free only lets you fly around the SFO area. To open up the whole world of maps, you need to purchase the full version which sells for $24.99. If your a big user of FS2004 like me, also a real world pilot, it opens up all the sectional charts of USA, or WAC charts, High and Low Altitude route charts,street maps, etc.. I do notice it is about a 1/2 mile off center, what I mean is that if you land at any airport in FS2004 and then look at the map being displayed on your Kindle, the airplane symbol will be off a little. Not bad though for a non precision app.I think that maybe the reviewer who said it does not work might not have installed the FSWidgets Network Host. After you install it you do have to do some minor setup procedures to get it communicating with your computer. Also the company that makes the app will get back to you quick if you have any questions about it. I am very pleased with it.

This app only has maps for Europe. Based on the limited use I can not rate this app very highly.
