PlanG doesnt load the world maps any longer (remote server error forbidden)

Switched from planG a long time ago to little navmap.

" Little Navmap is a free open source flight planner, navigation tool, moving map, airport search and airport information system "

It is excellent and well worth to make a donation to the developer Alex Projects. But you don't have to.

Where do you wish to view the moving map?  In sim?  or on separate device such as iPad or tablet?

What of EFB?  Seems pretty good but massively overpriced.

I am using FlightPlan Go on iPad. It's free and includes georeferenced approach plates.

Its just the OpenStreetMap option in Plan-G that gives the server error.

If you change the map provider in the options to OpenTopoMap or OpenCycleMap it works fine.

Confirm this - i love Plan-G and its great for monitoring Vatsim traffic as you fly along too. I have it loaded remotely on my Surface tablet when i fly.

I use Little NavMap for flight planning and FltPlan Go on an iPad for a moving map display.  FltPlan Go also has an Android app.

Price is a bit steep but worth every penny IMO.

Flight planning with SIDS/Stars, taxi guidance, weather integration, checklists, departure/approach charts, vertical guidance, seamless integration with default GPS etc. etc. Great all in one package and very easy to use. There's a fully functional 30 day trial available. Website here.

I thought so. Yea it is expensive but it is a  one time purchase compared to Navigraphs subscription that has to be renewed. Avilasoft EFB does update and can be updated with a Navigraph ARAC cycle  which I do subscribe to in oeder to keep my FMS'S up to date. Much cheaper then a chart subscription. I'm happy anyway. I'm sure some may disagree.

It's not free but if you have a Navigraph subscription, their Simlink moving map is quite good. Although I have all 4 ( Navigraph, PlanG, Little NavMap and EFB - i generally go to LNM for ease of use.

As a beta tester I didn’t need to buy it but I did buy v1 which was excellent. v2 is even better and with a Navigraph subscription it’s indispensable for my flights.

The author is Swiss so to some extent the price is not his fault. Everything out of Switzerland is pretty expensive.

You get a 30 day free trial which shows what confidence the author has in his product. Give it a try.

I also use LittleNavmap for seeing which river, lake, city or town I’m flying over. That too is very good and although it’s free I made a contribution. The author deserves it.
