Thanks for the release, However just wanted to point out an issue I posted this on the other thread with the issue: :)

There was a problem with the previous dmg file, I have uploaded a Map Connect 1.0.0 file to the Github releases page and it should work normally.

sure :)
this might help

Have been using map connect recently, great to see, that it becomes an update. Flying with a joystick makes IF more realistic.


This problem seems to only occur on computers with Apple chips (M1, M2). I’ll try to fix this issue.

Thank you . Let me know if you need anything

Problem fixed. Now you can download the app :)

thanks it works. I really appericate your help and support over the last two years :)

Just a note for anyone downloading, on the first time you open it - you need to control-click manually in finder to open the menu and click open. This overrides the setting for unidentified developer


Hello, I keep on getting:

“Map Connect cannot be opened because the developer cannot be verified”

What do I do to fix this?

Nvm i got it!

Hello is a secondary throttle like Logitech pro flight throttle quadrant compatible as well as the side stick?

We haven’t tested it. But it should be recognized.

I tested on closed beta version and it ran smoothly, it should be available on Open Beta. Enjoy 😉

Yokes and throttle are both TCA


Hi, Just updated Map-Connect via the Github/Releases link, but that link and the info in Map Connect both state V1? Infinite Flight & is not connecting with MC.

Is there a better link for V2 or does anyone have any suggestions?
-Infinite Flight Connect is enabled, MC recognizes Logitiech Extreme 3D Pro and will map it. It just won’t connect.

Actually, Map Connect 1.0.0 is v2, v1 refers to Map Connect 1.0.0-alpha and 1.0.0-beta

Hey. Just want to make sure is that Map Connect v2 works well for you? Have it ever lost connection (like v1)?
