X-Plane-Map by @foucdeg

How it Works

X-Plane can be configured to send out aircraft location data over the network. This application listens to those network exchanges and displays your aircraft on a Google Map.

Multiplayer mode

Flying with friends? The map can handle that. Instructions are detailed in the setup screen.

FAQ

Your computer’s firewall is not allowing your phone to reach the map server on your computer. The firewall should accept inbound TCP connections to the web server port (port 8080 by default).

A user experienced X-Plane slowing down while using the map, and their solution was to reduce the UDP rate (in Settings > Data Input and Output > Data Set > bottom right) to 5 or 10 instead of the default 20. Values lower than 5 may cause jitter on the map.
