There is a free 10 day trial to let you experience the difference for yourself. 

Be sure to read and follow the Installation Section of the User's Guide. It includes a link to XPUIPC that works.  The Installation is simple, but involves more than just running the install package.  You must install other software and configure some Windows settings. Please read the installation section in the User's Guide.

There are 2 full downloads of the program.  One with data from Navigraph and the other with data from NavDataPro.  The program is identical for both.

Once you have installed one of the full updates, you are ready to go!

When an updated version is released, you only need to install the Update.  You just download the update, unzip and run the installer, installing to the existing installation directory.  This update package contains all new code files, but does not have the data files.  Therefore, it must be installed over your existing full installation.  It will not run by itself.

Pilot2ATC Video Tutorials

There are many videos on the internet, more precisely, YouTube, that show many aspects of using Pilot2ATC.  Just use Bing or Google and search for "Pilot2ATC Videos" and you'll get quite a long list.  The videos on this page will give you an idea of how Pilot2ATC works. Version 2.0 is the current version. 

You will notice that Pilot2ATC takes up a significant part of the screen in these videos. When in actual use, it is resizable, and takes up about 1/4 to 1/3 of a screen at its optimal size. With a 2+ screen sim setup, it fits nicely to the left or right of your SIM. It does not have to be on top of your sim window. It was enlarged for movie making purposes.
