NO, getting an error when trying to install. States that it is not compatible wit some product but it does not say what product. 

Edit - A reboot sorted out the problem. 😁

Not sure about freeware other than free Cabo Verde by FSDG. They also offer some nice payware  Airports, e.g. Agadir and Casablanca in Morocco, Capetown in South Africa. Dakar in Senegal and Enfidha in Tunesia in their LITE series.

Look for Toliara and Nosy Be. Very high quality freeware in Madagascar.

I'm certainly glad this has finally been released and will word not allowed it up shortly.

However, I'm really disappointed that ORBX somewhat shortchanged their customers with this one as they left out Syria, Lebanon, Israel, Jordan, and Iraq.  These countries were supposed to be included according to the openLC map they released several years ago.  You'd think that with all the time they had developing this, about 2 years, they would have done what they said they were going to do and included these countries.  Now there's an unsightly gap between eastern Turkey and Africa.

You must be looking at a different map than the one you linked...in the pdf referenced above Israel, Jordan, and Iraq and everything north of them is outside the coverage area.
