Thanks for the reply. I went and purchased an ipad and the software, but it would apear that the simionic runs independant.
There is a tab to send the msfs data to the simionic but that seems to make it laggy. ive just purchased a new network card but not tried it yet as the su7 has obliterated my setup gggrrr lol.
What i found was that the radio freqs, HDG, CRS all seem to work but as for the Autopilot and GPS they all need to work via the app, rendering most of my inputs useless. Its a great app but i think the Bezel is needed but thats another £700. ouch.
