Any Addons to tell me what's around?

Recommended Posts

Hi All,

 

I wasn't quite sure how to put this, but was wondering if their were any admins  that might help me get a sense of what's around me at any given time. It's impossible for me to see the FSX map, let alone look outside the cockpit. I guess i'm hoping for some kind of "points of interest," feature, which might give me the bearing to any nearby VORs/cities/airports. 

 

I like the idea of being able to do my own route planning at some point, so a tool like this might be  helpful for more than sigh-seeing. The key point for my purposes would have to be a non-graphical interface, which seems to limit a lot of the "moving map," style programs, unfortunately.

 

Any thoughts would be appreciated. ItsYourPlane's flight following announcements kind of serve this purpose, but of course are mostly focused on cities.

THat's definitely interesting. I'm a bit wary of 3D icons though, I'll have to see how much, if any, of this I can access. Thanks for the pointer, at least. 

 

I honestly can't get anything from the screenshots.
