FSX GPS and map grafic error

Recommended Posts


I have a problem with the depiction of the map in GPS and in FSX. Example:  I have the plane on a PHNL Honolulu runway, but can not see the island

Oahu on the map and the airport seems to be in the water. I only can see Big Island but no other islands at all. The airports are there but all are in the *water*. 

Any help would be highly appreciated. 

Best regards

With both the map and GPS you should be able to adjust the range. I am sitting

at PHNL active runway in these shots. I can + or - out or in to show more or less.

Hi Charlie, 

thanks a lot for your immediate replay. 

Have continued experimenting and come to the following conclusion:

The lack of depiction of the  terrain in the FSX GPS / map is limited within the excellent series from (Hawaii) 

and only on different islands of the Hawaii Archipelago. No problem with Big Island and Kauai.
I tested the map/GPS at  LSZB LSZH KSFO and KSEA, where the terrain is,   as usual, displayed correctly. So I have to knock on the door at the forum  of Flightsim

Thanks again for your help.
