A Senior Query ?

Recommended Posts

For some reason - although I have been handling PC problems for 40 years - I just cannot get my head around these mobile phones

and Tablets that run on Androids - or should that be Steroids:)


I bought the wife a new tablet to replace an aging Samsung one - and which I thought I would use it in conjunction with the PC in the sim

for say - PDF's  - or Checklists etc. - but I am lost:banghead:


Can someone please help an old dodderer as to how to get such things on a tablet using Android?


I do use a second monitor for little map - or checklists etc - but those of course are via Windows

My Amazon "Fire" tablets download PDF files just fine, and they go into a "Download" Kindle folder.  I don't use it for that in the Sim, though.  Like Wayne, I use mine extensively for Navigraph Charts.  I also use it for VFRMaps, SkyVector and PilotEdge, both to file my flight plan, and to see the PE map showing where other PE traffic is.  I use a 7" for general use, including writing this post.  I have a new 8" tablet that is just for flight sim, and lives attached to my yoke by the Rex Mount.


I have no knowledge of Samsung or other brands of these devices.  The inexpensive "Fire" tablets do what I want. I have three (two active at the moment) and my wife has one. They use the Android protocol.


If you have Saitek/Logitech FIPs there is a checklist available at WWW.fipgauges.com. It's pretty generic, but easily edited.  Gauges from this site do require SPADnext, though.
