Hi,

I know Navigraph airac cycles can be used, however does Little NavMap support Aerosoft NavDataPro updates?

Thanks Ian

Depends. It is a lot of work to write and maintain these data compilers. Not sure if I want to support another format. Have to see.

I would imagine you can manually copy the NavDataPro files into the correct folder? Ok, so it's a little bit of work, but surely it will work ok?

Unfortunately not so easy. 

LMN doesn't read data from folders.  The Navigraph data is compiled into a database file that LMN reads.  The database is similar to what LMN creates when the the user 'loads' a simulator database.

Adding a different data source would require Alex creating a compiler to transform the NavDataPro data into the database format and maintain it.  

I think this is what he is referring to in his reply.

BTW, LMN is open source so I someone else could possibly create the necessary compiler. 

Of course, they would need to agree to maintain it because it would be uncool to create, then dump and run expecting Alex to maintain it.  IMHO..

Fair enough. It sounds like the NDP developers are the ones that need to create an installer within their client. Can't see that happening any time soon.

Not only that. That is the least effort. Somebody has to create the data compiler (what Ernie mentioned) and they are not always willing to do that.😐
