Little Navmap stable release 1.6.3 - X-Plane support

Recommended Posts

Hi All,

the biggest change in this version is X-Plane support for almost all Little Navmap features: Scenery Database, moving map, traffic, weather and more.

The update is also recommended for FSX and Prepar3D users because of several bugfixes and other small improvements like the new configurable update notification which will show a dialog if a new release is available.

Announcement on my page with all links.

Direct download link Windows

Direct download link macOS

Direct download link Linux

Changes from Release 1.4.4 to 1.6.3

The scenery database format has changed and the program will ask to erase its own databases if started.

Enhancements

  * Weather from X-Plane downloaded weather file `METAR.rwx` (station or nearest station).
  * Copy airspaces from FSX or P3D to X-Plane database.

  * Now erasing wrong airway entries at departure and destination when loading flight plan to avoid problems with malformed flight plans from other tools.

Bug Fixes and Improvements

  * Improved weather display for nearest station: Added name, distance and map link to reporting station if that is an airport.
  * FSX and P3D: Fixed several problems with magnetic declination by using `magdec.bgl` file now.
  * Fixed issues when loading P3D v4 add-on.xml.
  * Fixed crash when loading older FSX/P3D scenery.
  * Fixed handling and display of helipads. Now using name as an identifier.
  * Improved detection of military and closed airports.
  * Database loading dialog now pops up after erasing incompatible databases.
  * Fixed missing encoding in saved FSX PLN files causing problems with other tools.
