FSNavigator and FSBuild

Recommended Posts

Guest JosephSAnderson

I am looking into buying a Flight Planner. Would appreciate opinions on FSBuild and FSNavigator, as they appear to do the same thing. At the same time, the FSBuild web site describes FSNavigator as a "supported app."I will wait for the FS2004 version for both, but would like to know the differences between the two products.Thanks,Joe

FSbuild is mainly concerned with the actual planning of a route - which DP/STAR to use, what airway path, calculating fuel burns etc. I haven't bought 2.0 yet, but plan too as soon as I have some extra cash.FSNav acts more (at least the way I use it) as a detailed moving map and searchable navaid/airport database. It's far more convienent than pausing the sim to open the map view to get an ILS freq/course etc... It does have some features that will couple it to the default FS autopilot, but I hardly ever fly default planes.Ryan

The 2004 version of FSNav was released yesterday. It is an excellent program. I've used it for the past two years in FS2002. As another post states you can try it for 30 sessions. It is much easier to use than the GPS in FS2004. If you purchase the program any updates are free. Try it...you'll like it!!Jim Burke

Joe - Both do an excellent job of flight planning. But the moving map feature and utility of FSNavigator make it, IMHO, the best single addon ever for MSFS. You can download and try the freeware version of FSBuild (it has all the basics of the payware version) and FSNavigator is good for 20 free used before requiring reqistration. Try them both. I'll bet you opt for FSNavigator (I own them both).Doug
