Development has been continuing of the ARINC 424 Parser and more recently a new user app to present the navigation data in textual and in a graphical form on a map. This new app is known as A424 Explorer and is being created as a Universal Windows Platform (UWP) app for Windows 10 to be made available in the Microsoft store. The Explorer app has also assisted in improving the ARINC 424 Parser by making the API easier and more intuitive to use along with improved support for UWP. The API has been expanded to expose ARINC 424 fields as FPAssistant data types as well as the standard ASCII format of the navigation database. Current work is investigating the best way to handle large datasets when displaying data to the user in the app.
This app is currently being developed using the recently released Visual Studio 2019 from Microsoft.
