When updating Fergo Virtual CDU, please always do a fresh install (entirely delete the contents of the old folder and extract the newly downloded archive).
*** NEW ***
Fergo Virtual CDU version 1.0.8442 now supports both the Captain's and First Officer's CDUs. You can alternate between them (even during flight) by clicking the "Fergo Virtual CDU" text at the top of the CDU panel. It's also possible to use both sides at the same time if you have two devices or two browser connected to the same server
Fergo Virtual CDU is a virtual Control Display Unit for MSFS' PMDG 737 aircraft series (737-900, 737-800, 737-700 and 737-600). It allows you to remote control the plane's Flight Management Computer (FMC) externally with soft-buttons and a 1:1 representation of the display in real time. Accessible through your regular web-browser, you can use it in a second monitor or any other device connected to your home network, such as a phone or tablet.
As of version 1.0.8442, it also supports both the Captain's and First Officer's sides. You can alternate between them (even during flight) by clicking the "Fergo Virtual CDU" text at the top of the CDU panel. It's also possible to use both sides at the same time if you have two devices or two browser connected to the same server
Web based client
The CDU interface is a web app that uses your regular browser, such as Firefox or Chrome. That means you can use it in your computer, phone, tablet or any other device connected to your home network and capable of web browsing.
Easy to use
Simply launch the server, navigate to the CDU interface with your browser and you are good to go. The software automatically connects to the game and sets up the client-server communication.
Fergo Virtual CDU is a standalone and portable software that requires no installation. Simply extract the contents of the compressed archive into a folder of choice.
FCDU will automatically configure the PMDG settings for data broadcast and add the required firewall rules for the client.
User experience shouldn't be affected by clumsy on-line DRM. Fergo Virtual CDU uses a simple and off-line activation system.
As the client is web based, you can customize images, fonts and colors by simply editing the HTML and CSS files (some web development knowledge recommended).

An update with support for PMDG 737-800 is available for download on flightsim.to.
I get an ERR_SSL_PROTOCOL_ERROR every time I try to use it on my andoid tablet. Works on my android phone and desktop but refuses to on my tablet which is specifically what I got it for. Tried different ports with no luck.

You are probably connecting with HTTPS instead of HTTP or your browser's tablet is configure to only accept HTTPS connection. That's not an issue on the FCDU side of things.
Hola me he descargado la aplicación en el iPad iOS 9ª generación y no hay manera que me funcione, lo he probado en el ordenador y va bien. Alguna solución, una ayudita que pueda ir bien en el iPad?. Tiene que ser una pasada manejar el fmc a través de la tablet. Gracias
Since upgrading to the latest version yesterday, the FMC will display correctly on my tablet, but my tablet is now not responding to key presses. App installed correctly, no other changes to my setup. Same on both 738 and 739.
When I press a button on the tablet, the following is displayed:
[11:13:42] <- Unrecognized message received (0)

Please try to force a refresh on the page on your device (by manually click the refresh button on the browser). This is probably due to some caching issue that the browser didn't clear.

All sorted, thanks. I also cleared browsing history, cookies, etc just to be on the safe side.

After 2 more installs and a reset from my switch it's working.
Time for a testflight now.
Love the product.

This is probably due to the browser caching the old version of the CDU, so you end up using a new server but an old client. A force refresh of the browser the CDU is running on should fix the issue.
Since this last update, the CDU has stopped working.
Although the screen refreshes when I turn on the aircraft battery, and even when I use the CDU from the simulator, the App BUTTONS (FergosCDU) do not interact with the simulator.

Can you please check if the server shows that it is receiving the messages from the CDU? It should display something like this:
(this was tested a few minutes ago and seems to be working fine from my iPad)
If it's not, please make sure you did a clean install of the update (delete the old folder completely and extract the new one). Also, make sure to force a refresh on the browser so it doesn't use any cached file from the old version.
I just bought your kit and it works great with the 737, BUT I would be very happy if it was compatible with more planes: CRJ A310 MD11 Note that many larger planes are already on the way PMDG 777 Airbus 330, Bae 146 fms and others. If you expand the palette, you can quickly become the market leader and have more sales. thank you for your work.
Hello, will we have to reinstall the software? Because he walks nickel at home I am afraid to redo a resettlement.
I assume this will eventually support the 737-900/-900ER?
Fergo Simworks 2 month(s) ago
Absolutely. It should be available this weekend.
I'd like to give 5 stars but i'm having a hell of a time trying to figure out how to get the fullscreen set up with the cdu on my android tablet. Any ideas anyone? Other than that great product.
Hello when can we expect version for a320 FBW

You have freeware simbridge to use your tablet or phone as FMC.
3 months passed and the open points in the roadmap are not yet worked off!
I recently bought the product, it works very well on my iPad but the response time is not as fast as FlyByWire's freeware Simbridge. I'd like to see if this can be updated.
After many hours of use, only one thing should be changed: CDU should work faster. I have a new iPad which is super fast, and I have amazing internet at home, which is also super fast. (Before the producer will ask about my internet and my iPad, etc)
So, you should do something, that will make it all a bit faster. Cause once I choose some number on the CDU keyboard or whatever option, it takes 2-3sec till something happens.
Hello, i bought this addon, but its possible connect to A320 flybywire?

FBW gives you this for free via simconnect - there is tutorial on FBW discord how to get it to work easily and quickly.
Very sad, that there is no ''full size'' on iPad...I mean like full screen....or do you guys have a full screen? I'm not too fond of these grey side straps on the left and right
Fergo Simworks 4 month(s) ago
You can get full screen by adding the webpage as a web app in the home screen. Regarding the sidebars, the aspect ratio of the CDU is different than the iPad screen, so you either have black bars on the side or stretch the CDU. Fergo CDU opted for the first option as it doesn't distort anything.

Thank you for your answer. 😊

I buy your product a couple of hours ago. The only thing I have to day: its AMAZING! You did a great job Mate !
Looks great, will it work on Amazon Fire Tablet 8? I think the Amazon Fire Tablet 8 runs OS in APK or Android. Yeah, hope so. Thanks Buddy
stuff like this should be open source
anaganisk 11 day(s) ago
By open source you mean free?
and why should this even be open-source, feel free to write your own HTML page, which will RPC to a server that interacts with MSFS API thru simvars.
Does it support the A310?
This CDU is awesome. Really adds to the immersion of flying, and quicker when I use it on my iPad. One issue I found though...if you are seeing question mark icons instead of certain symbols, then you probably have this setting on and it needs to be disabled: Control Panel > Region > Administrative tab > Change system locale button. Then uncheck Beta: Use Unicode UTF-8 for worldwide language support.
Love this add on!!!Can't do without it
