Why would you choose FsXpand?
- Flexibility: With most panel suites, you buy per aircraft type. With FsXpand, you have several cockpitsat once (more to come), no need to switch to other software if you change your a/c type.
- Versatility: You can make your own selection of gauges/panels, drag, resize over 100 different networked gauges. Works with the most popular sims.
- Adaptability: Even modify your gauges using the Gauge Editor (expert option).
- Portability: A system change does not require you to renew the license. Neither is there a limit to the amount of clients/panels you want to run. The license is valid for 1 Local Area network (255.255.255.0). 1 FsXPand (server component), clients unlimited.

Overview of the current types in the gauge library

This software is modular: it includes a Basic and an FMS section. When starting the demo, you can choose which one to use.
FsXPand Demo version is fully functional, you have 30 minutes unpaused airtime, but you will be nagged by boxes.
Underlying database is updatable and there is an update service for FsXpand available from Navigraph.com.
Basic version is capable of loading an Fs9 or FSX flightplan, showing it in the Navigational Display.

Explicit 3rd party compatibility: key configuration files


We recommend the Basic version for building a GA or small commuter cockpit.
The FMS version is suitable for a 737NG flightdeck. It features an FMS system, independent of the actual aircraft type.
Stock 737-300 and 400, and PMDG 737NG 700 dynamic model compatible. This means that the FsXPand AFDS (autopilot) is parameterized to suite these types.
Alternatively fly a 737 based on the Basic version: Load your flightplan from FS and eventually switch to GPS mode (even from FsXPand) to enable automatic lateral navigation.
The FMS contains also the Basic features, with the exception of the simple flightplan import.


Installing on Windows 7 or later:
- See to it that you are in the Administrators group.
- Switch off your UAC for administrators, for FsXPand does not run under UAC. If your edition doesn't allow that, use this reg file, or switch it off entirely.
- Check your sharing permissions on the \\yourcomputername\FsClient share: Properties, Sharing, Advanced, Permissions, listed is 'Everyone', click Full control.
If this is wrongly set, you get 'Could not write to \\yourcomputername\FsClient\FMS.
- Make sure you have setup your network properly so you can read and write to files on the shares on your computer.
- Compatibility should have been set to XP SP3 automatically. If not, do so manually.
