About This File

iGoConnect is an X-Plane plugin that connects X-Plane to iGoDispatch – an application (Windows, Mac, iOS, and Android) developed for LES Saab-340A, JRollon's CRJ-200, and IXEG's Boeing-733.

The plugin performs the following functions:

  • Identifies airports, waypoints, airways and navaids included in the flight plan and sends to the client navdata for each of these points. Navdata is selected from the following X-Plane files (apt.dat, earth_fix.dat, earth_awy.dat, and earth_nav.dat).
  • Receives from the client loading information (i.e., Center of Gravity offset, payload weight, and fuel weight) and adjust the corresponding datarefs in X-Plane.
  • Periodically parses to the client the following ACARS data: plane’s position (latitude and longitude); heading (true and magnetic); weight; available fuel; current fuel flow; ground speed; and altitude.
  • In X-Plane 11, dynamically adjusts the plane's Center of Gravity during a flight resulting in greater flight realism. In X-Plane 12, this is implemented by the simulator.
  • Monitors flight performance based on approximately 20 parameters, identifies potential issues during the flight, and sends the report to the client.


If you have MacOS Catalina (10.15) or higher, it is possible that after downloading and installing the plugin, you will not find it in the X-Plane's menu. This error is caused by the MacOS security protocols during the X-Plane start-up process that references a Mac.xpl file. If you do not see iGoConnect in the menu of the simulator, the following link explains how to solve the problem: https://x-plane.helpscoutdocs.com/article/26-mac-xpl-not-starting.

If you have problems connecting the iGoDispatch application to the computer with X-Plane running, it is most likely that your Firewall is blocking the TCP connection. You need to open the port to allow connection between your iPad and computer.

For Windows:

  • Go to Control Panel > Windows Firewall
  • Click on "Advanced Settings" in the left-hand pane.
  • Click on "Inbound Rules" and then "New rule".
  • Select "Port", click next, select "TCP", and enter "7767" as the local port.
  • Click next, and allow the connection.
  • Click next again, and ensure that "Domain", "Private" and "Public" are all ticked.
  • Name your firewall rule, e.g. "iGoConnect", and then save it.

For Mac:

  • Go to System Preferences, and choose the Security and Privacy Tab.
  • Click on the Firewall Tab, and the Firewall options button.
  • The page will show you the applications that are allowed access through your firewall
  • Add new applications to the list by clicking on the plus icon.


If you use third-party firewalls, they have their own procedures of adding Ports to TCP connections that may differ from those that I provide in my manual. You need to follow their specific instructions.

For example, if you have McAfee in Windows, follow these steps:

  1. Open McAfee Total Protection;
  2. Open Web and Email Protection;
  3. Open Firewall;
  4. Open Ports and System Services;
  5. Click Add;
  6. System Service Name: iGoDispatch. Local TCP/IP Ports: 7767. Open ports to: All PCs. Forward port activity: checked.
  7. Click Save.

The Manual is also available here: http://igoapp.ca/page_igoconnect/igoconnect_manual.html

The plugin supports Windows, Mac (OS X versions 10.7 or later), and Linux.

What's New in Version 3.0.32   See changelog


  • This version supports iGoDispatch IXEG's Boeing-733 desktop version 2 (to be released soon), as well as iOS applications version 5 and Android application version 2 (expected to be released in 2024). If you have earlier versions of the iGoDispatch application, you do not need to update, although all previous versions of iGoDispatch should be compatible with iGoConnect v3.x.x.
  • For new versions of iGoDispatch, this update no longer uses separate navdata by Aerosoft (Navigraph navdata is also compatible). Instead, it uses navdata provided with X-Plane (default or custom). For previous versions of iGoDispatch, the plugin continues to rely on separate navdata. Please refer to Aerosoft (or Navigraph) manual for directions to update X-Plane navdata, and to the plugin manual on how to update the plugin navdata.
  • This version adds compatibility with X-Plane 12. Deprecated datarefs have been replaced with the new ones. X-Plane 11 datarefs also continue to be supported.
