iTunes - Copy/Update Flight Plan

Copying flight plan files to iFMS - iTunes

Apart from having the ability to load and save your flight plans created in iFMS to your device locally, it is also possible to create flight plan files on your computer and transfer them to iFMS through iTunes. An example flight plan file can be downloaded from our downloads section. The installation of a flight plan file is similar to installing new navdata or a new aircraft file as explained in the previous section. Once you've created your flight plan file, connect your device to your computer and open iTunes. Click on your device and then click on the "Apps" button at the top of your iTunes window. Then scroll the page, you should see a list box on the left listing the apps you've installed that allow data sharing, including iFMS. Click on iFMS. the list box on the right should now display the iFMS shared documents (the list should be empty unless you've already copied files there). Click the "Add" button below the list, then navigate to and select the flight plan file you've just created. Important, a flight plan file must have the ".fp" extension for iFMS to recognise it as a new flight plan file. Now launch iFMS on your device (exit first using the "exit" option in the iFMS menu if you have not already done so). On startup iFMS will install the new flight plan and remove the flight plan file from the shared documents. Done.
