!! Windows 7 no longer supported !!

As Microsoft will stop supporting Windows 7 on Jan 20th we will be unable to test any of our
products on that platform. It may work, or it may not, but no guarantees from our side.

iGoDispatch for CRJ-200 (iPad)

Recommended Posts

Hello.

Some of you may have already used my application iGoDispatch. In late March, I will be releasing an iPad application iGoDispatch for CRJ-200. This application will have additional functionalities, some of which include, just to name a few:

Loading passengers, cargo, and fuel directly from the application using the TCP connection;

Tracking the flight on a map and monitoring the main flight parameters;

Ability to create a more precise flight plan using VORs, NDBs, Fixes (the application uses the default X-Plane navdata);

Monitoring your flight performance against 20 various criteria and generating flight performance reports;

Changing the Centre of Gravity dynamically during the flight based on the fuel weight.

I hope you are going to enjoy it!

Igor

Hello, everyone. The application has been released. You may obtain it here:

https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/igodispatch-crj-200/id966072007?mt=8

The application manual can be seen here:

http://igoapp.ca/page_igodispatchcrj/igodispatchcrj_manual.html

Note that in order to connect the application to X-Plane, you need to install the iGoConnect plugin. IMPORTANT: Please note that OS X versions 10.7 or later are supported for the iGoConnect plugin. You can download it here:

http://igoapp.ca/page_igoconnect/igoconnect.html

You may report bugs and leave your comments either here or by email (within the application).

Have a safe flight!

Please note that I will be away from May 6 to May 18, and no technical support will be provided during this time. Upon my return, an update will be released that will include the following:

  • Added an option to enter fuel using textfields.
  • Optimization of code for textfield input validation.
  • Modified the UIPickerView interface. Added "Select" as the first row.
  • Added notification about the iGoConnect plugin in the Splash screen.
  • Added a warning before deleting the previous flight information.
  • Fixed a bug when fuel was erroneously calculated when the air distance exceeded the maximum range.
  • Fixed a bug when removing an airport from a textfield would not change distance and fuel calculation until going to the Distance tab.
  • Fixed a bug when changing Flight Level would not re-calculate fuel until going to Load Fuel tab.
  • An activity indicator is now displayed when the application is searching for a waypoint to avoid the situation when a user may think that the application is frozen and re-enter another waypoint during the search.
  • Some modifications to UI.
The update is ready, but I am reluctant to releasing it until I am back in case some code is broken, as there have been a lot of changes in the application code. I will also try to update the manual as soon as possible.
Cheers.

iGoDispatch v2 has just been released. The changes include:
•    Added compatibility with iPhone
•    Updated airport database
•    Added an option to switch between tabs by swiping the screen (convenient when you use iPhone)
•    Bug fixes
I also thought that the application would benefit from some funny stuff added. So, I included inflight public announcements in several languages.

To read the application manuals, visit the site:

http://igoapp.ca/page_igodispatchcrj/igodispatchcrj.html

IMPORTANT: You need to download and install iGoConnect plugin version 1.4.6. The older versions of the plugin will not work with the upgrade.

Enjoy!

In a few days, the iGoDispatch application will be updated to version 2.3. The application will now use the Aerosoft navdata instead of the default one coming with X-Plane. The navdata will be included in the iGoConnect plugin. Therefore, it will also be required to update the plugin for the application to work properly (the updated iGoConnect plugin will be available at the same time).

 

The Aerosoft's NavDataPro app is to be updated soon. When using NavDataPro, select "iGoDispatch (X-Plane)" from the list of add-ons and select the folder where the iGoConnect plugin is located (/X-Plane folder/Resources/plugins/iGoConnect/). 

 

The application should also be compatible with the following Navigraph dataset: "X-Plane GNS430, 777 Worldliner (Ext/Prof), Flightfactor B757 Professional...". You can manually install the dataset by copying and pasting the folder "navdata" to the iGoConnect folder.

 

Planning a flight with the application now requires connection with X-Plane (i.e. X-Plane must be running on your computer). This is the only disadvantage related to the update. But this is a tradeoff that had to be made to ensure that the most recent navdata is always used.

 

The next major update will be coming this summer. The flight performance analysis will be completely redone.

 

Enjoy the flight!

The application will be updated to version 2.4 within the next couple of days. Changes include:

  • Improved flight performance report;
  • Fixed a bug with loading cargo; and
  • Added Brazilian Portuguese to inflight announcements.

Note that the new version requires an update to the iGoConnect plugin (v. 2.10.15) to be fully operational. You may download it here:

Please let me know if you have noticed any bugs.

Cheers.

Within the next 24 hours, an update for the application to version 3.0 should be available on AppStore. This is a major update that includes completely rewritten code. Although testing has been performed in the last couple of weeks, it is possible that the application may still have bugs. Please let me know if you find any. Some of the changes include:

  • Added compatibility with iOS11;
  • Revised UI;
  • Added flight planning using SIDs, STARs, and Approaches;
  • Added downloading current winds aloft from the NOAA servers;
  • Fixed bugs.

If someone is not familiar with the new UI, you may read the manual available here (not from the application yet, this will be fixed later):
