There used to exist a plugin in Google Play, but sadly it was discontinued. At this time, there is no way to connect the Android version of Air Navigation Pro with X-Plane.

You just have to:
 
* Search for "X-plane to GPS" app in the Play Store.
 
* Download it.
 
* Follow instructions to get GPS signal from X-Plane.
 
* Run Air Navigation Pro.

In order to connect Air Navigation Pro to the X-Plane Flight Simulator, a special plugin must be installed in the '''«plugin» folder''' of X-Plane.

In order to connect Air Navigation Pro to the X-Plane Flight Simulator, a plugin is no longer needed. Standard position/attitude sharing setting for sharing via a network (UDP) must be enabled in X-Plane settings.

The Plug-in for Mac or Windows can be downloaded from our site at the bottom of this page:
 
 
 
<!--T:20-->
 
http://airnavigation.aero/support
 
 
 
<!--T:21-->
 
The plugin «Air Navigation_mac.xpl» or «Air Navigation_win.xpl» '''must be copied to the «Resources/Plugins» folder''' inside the X-Plane folder. If the plugin is correctly installed, you should see «Air Navigation» in the «Plugins» menu of X-Plane, located at the top bar when starting a flight.

Once you have identified the plugin on X-Plane, then click on '''«Start Air Navigation bridge»''', located within '''«Plugins»''' top menu as mentioned before.

On Mac computers we use the '''"Bonjour"''' feature to discover X-Plane on the network, this is much easier than typing network addresses.

On Windows computers the '''“Bonjour”''' service is required for the automatic detection of X-Plane network address by the iPhone or iPad. If you have already installed iTunes you don’t have to do anything, since Bonjour comes with iTunes automatically.
 
 
 
<!--T:26-->
 
To download and install the Bonjour service for Windows manually go to the following address:
 
 
 
<!--T:27-->
 
https://support.apple.com/kb/DL999?viewlocale=en_US&locale=es_LA
 
 
 
<!--T:28-->
 
Download the installer and follow on-screen instructions.

[[File:danger.jpg|caption|left]] Once you have started the Air Navigation bridge on the X-Plane:
 
 
 
* make sure you have your '''iPad/iPhone and your PC''' connected to the '''same wifi network''';
 
* make sure to switch the '''X-Plane Sensors ON''' in the «Tools» menu.

* Start X-Plane simulation
 
* Start Plugin (Plugin – Air Navigation – Start Air Navigation bridge)
 
* View info (Plugin – Plugin Admin – Plugin Information) Air Navigation (Enabled)
 
* Start ANP
 
* Enable Connexion (Tools – Sensors – X-Plane Flight sim – Sensor – ON)

* Yes and X-Plane connexion work - Enjoy with X-Plane and ANP
 
* Yes but X-Plane connexion lost - Test Bonjour installation
 
* No:
 
** Is the Wifi enabled on the device?
 
** Are both devices (iOS device and Desktop computer) on the same network?
