There's a download that enables us to see the regions that we purchased on the Google Map, but I've looked everywhere. Does anyone know where it can be found?

If you are looking for a KMZ for each region, go to the FTX website - click on a region and scroll down to find the download button for that region's KMZ file.  You have to download them individually it looks like.

OrbX kmz files give the regions coverage and list their built-in enhanced airports and special features. AU has none of the latter and its coverage is obvious. There is not really a need.

 

You can find, at OzX I think, a kmz with the OzX strips and Orbx excellent freeware airports.

On the contrary, there is this kmz for AU:  http://www.orbxsystems.com/forum/topic/41035-ftx-australia-region-coverage-area-kmz/

Good digging you did but this kmz is not on the product page and seems mainly directed to those who had bought AU in geographic installments. OrbX doesn't sell AU like that anymore. Better have the OzX+default+OrbX payware unified kmz.

 

Since it is the only one ORBX made for AU, that is all we can reference from them.

 

Can you post the KMZ file or a link to the one you keep mentioning?

 

I have been to the OZx site twice and cannot find a KMZ file.

Hi Wolfee

 

First, thanks a lot for the maps you do, your work is appreciated !

 

It is called OzX.3.4. kmz and is subdivided in several sub-kmz : Western AU, South AU, Victoria, Queensland, Northern Territory and Serges_OZx33_ORBX_ant.kmz. The latter is itself subdivided in a myriad of sub-kmz (airports, silos, oil rigs, AM radio stations, OrbX airports, H2O starts etc.) .  

 

That kmz has been with me for quite a while so I am not sure how it came to me : OzX 3.4 or the complete AU collection ? Did you try posting on their forum ?

 

EDIT a Google  search found Serges_OZx33_ORBX_ant.kmz here

 

 aussiex.org/kmz/Australian_OZx3.3_ORBX_Ant.kmz

 

Download also the 3.4 package or better 3.5 (I don't have it yet but I suppose it has a kmz too)
