How does Simchart 3 work?

Recommended Posts

I am thinking of getting Simchart 3 even though I am using FSX and not FS9.All I am looking for is to be able to view charts and then print them out when I need it. I do not care for tight integration that the online simchart 4 that I have provides (This is going to expire in a year).I understand that I can unlock the 3 regions (IF I get the 3 region disk) when I install. Does the app go to Jeppesen to unlock this? I am worried that Jeppesen would stop supporting this in a year.IS it tightly coupled to my PC? What happens when I move to another PC? can I install it again in another PC?How does it work?MannyPS. Mods, please feel free to delete this thread if no one has replied. I am going to post this in the FSX thread which I should have done in the first place.

I don't have Simcharts 3, so I cannot answer your questions, but one thing to be aware of is that these charts apply to the default airports in FS2004. I'm not sure how much different the FSX database is from the one in FS2004, but you may end up with incorrect frequencies and approach headings for some airports.

Hi TomAren't these expired real world charts in the Jeppesen formats? I know the real world may not reflect FS9 or FSX for some airports. Is that what you mean?I wouldn;t think that Jeppesen changed their charts to reflect FS9 airport data.Manny

My understanding is that it worked the other way around - Microsoft implemented their navaids, airports etc. such as they were at a specific point in time for each version of FS. Jeppesen then sold the (old) charts that matched what Microsoft had implemented as "Simcharts".
