FSFlightMax, using FSFM remote, will run on second PC using Widefs, don't know about the Garmin as I don't have it.Widefs also allows you to run ActiveSky, FS Meteo, RW, SB and other seperate programs on the second PC.From what little I know of WideView it allows you to run a second instance of FS linked to the main FS and with WideView you can display any FS window.HTH

Hi,I run FSFlightMax, Activesky and FSGarmin530 on my 2nd computer using WideFS and they all run perfectly....No frame rate hit whatsoever doing this whereas I would lose 3 - 4 frames running the Garmin alone on the same computer.Hope this helps ....

Yes, I could do that. But now on my (third) monitor I have not only the Garmin and Flightmax, but they are integrated in a panel that also shows engine instruments. Garmin and Flightmax are embedded in that panel. I have to run the panel window plus th other applications in order to get what I want. I include a pic so it is easier to understand.Alex
