Hi Bill,I use FS Flight Keeper which logs all aspects of your flight and also includes an excellent map created by reading your scenery files. You can zoom right in to airports to show taxiways, runways and gates. Whilst not free it does allow you to have a small number of flights to assess its usefulness prior to purchase.Download it here.

Maybe the DBS GPS is what you search for.

I just get the Aerodrome and/or taxiway charts of the paticular airport I am in/approaching (very rare I can't find appropriate chart) and print it out.

Go to External View using "W" key and then toggle "A" key to get a top down view which can be zoomed in for taxi.Particularly good also for seeing runway layout.However, for realism I do as Vipergt and print the airport charts. They are easy to get and free.Here is a good site for the US:http://aeronav.faa.gov/index.asp?xml=aeron...lications/d_tpp

For FAA charts I get individual or bundled charts (including the airport diagram) from flightaware.com in .pdf format.These are free.The only caution is that these are current and may not match totally your FS scenery.RC4 will autotune your comms (also listed frequencies it will use on the Controller page) but not your navs so you might want to get your navaid frequencies by using AFCAD or other utility that reads your navaid frequencies. Alternately you can browse r4.csv in the data folder with notepad (but do not save it or you will corrupt it) for your airport runway list which has your FS navaid frequencies.Here's the field description:R4.CSV (RUNWAYS FILE for RCV 4.3): ICAO, Rwy*, Latitude*, Longitude*, Altitude*, HeadingMag, Length*, ILSfreqFlags*, Width*, MagVar, CentreLatitude, CentreLongitude, ThresholdOffset*,Status*and an example:KMSP,0040,44.870926,-93.240189,841,42.650,11699,109.30G,150,2.300,44.882282,-93.224190,2250,CT,CLKMSP,0121,44.892944,-93.221008,841,119.080,8189,110.70DG,150,2.300,44.887096,-93.207474,0,,KMSP,0122,44.888786,-93.236450,841,119.090,10700,110.30DG,200,2.300,44.881142,-93.218773,700,,KMSP,0170,44.887112,-93.241776,841,168.000,7800,0,160,2.300,44.876568,-93.239235,0,,CLKMSP,0220,44.893639,-93.208191,841,222.650,11699,110.50G,150,2.300,44.882282,-93.224190,988,CT,CLKMSP,0301,44.873497,-93.201096,841,299.090,10700,110.30DG,200,2.300,44.881142,-93.218773,0,,KMSP,0302,44.881248,-93.193939,841,299.080,8189,110.70BDG,150,2.300,44.887096,-93.207474,0,,KMSP,0350,44.866024,-93.236694,841,348.000,7800,110.95DG,160,2.300,44.876568,-93.239235,0,CT,The fourth digit in the runway number stands for blank, left, right, center, water.
