PMDG Releases New UFT Update and Previews Upcoming 777

PMDG has recently issued a new update to their Universal Flight Tablet for Microsoft Flight Simulator, currently only equipping their 737 lineup but also planned to be on their upcoming 777 in the near future, which has also seen its first preview yesterday.

Update 3.00.0086 brings small fixes to the Universal Flight Tablet, part of their commitment to improve the product constantly. The complete changelog follows below:

Tablet Version 1.5.0 / PMDG 737 Build 3.00.0086

12634: [EFB - Navigraph Charting Functions] Map day/night mode and map type (Navigraph/PMDG) should be persistent (rmurdoch)

12740: [EFB - Performance and Computational] METARs with wind in MPS units handled improperly (rmurdoch)

12739: [EFB - General] 0-degree temperature breaks OPT, simple weather display (rmurdoch)

12772: [EFB - Performance and Computational] METAR with MPS wind unit converting incorrectly, breaking OPT (rmurdoch)

12815: [EFB - General] Remove dependancy on CDN for bootstrap css (rmurdoch)

The update has also been sent to the MSFS Marketplace and will probably be made available next Thursday.

They are still figuring out how to make the tablet work on the Xbox version, as there are slight differences between how the communications layer works. 

When asked about more 777 information, Randazzo posted the first preview of their 777: a landing gear photo. No other information was shared about the matter besides that PMDG is working on new previews. 

PMDG’s product lineup is available on their website, with prices ranging from $34.99 to $69.99.
