PLN viewer on mobile devices

BIMx is cool but...

If I want to view my plan on the construction site to check just a detail??

Please, don't tell me to convert my model to BIMx every day. I also need a PLN viewer on mobile devices!

I think you can just upload the new layouts where those new details are created on a day to day basis without having to republish the entire set or model.

Or have a PDF viewer for your device?

Get a Windows tablet and run ARCHICAD in demo mode?

Publishing a BIMx model can be a one-click affair after it is set up.

AutoCAD (DWG file) - AutoCAD 360 by Autodesk
Sketchup (SKP file) - SketchUp Mobile Viewer by Trumble
Revit (RVT file) - A360 or Buzzsaw by Autodesk
Vectorworks (VWX file)- Vectorworks Nomad by Nemetschek

ArchiCAD (PLN file) - No option

Am I the only one who needs a mobile viewer?

A360 and Buzzsaw are subscription services that can run to thousands of dollars per month depending on your usage.
A simple method I use is to just connect to my desktop via Remote Desktop connection and run ARCHICAD on my PC, I have been doing this for a few years from my ipad2 via a 3G connection with no issues and am sure that the file I am viewing or editing is current.
I have also connected from my iPhone when I haven't had my iPad just to check a dimension but the screen really is too small to be of much use.
