I never did the Google maps thing and the last time I flew (about  a month ago) I  received this about every 5 minutes.

An issue in the pipe to LA I'm thinking 🤔

I do not have Google maps mod and I still get this msg on startup.  It never happened before SU7.

C:/Windows/System32/Drivers/etc

Edit the host (that is the entire file name and has no extension) and hosts.ics using Notepad - in Notepad you have to tell it to look at all files not just *.txt, which is the default

hosts file should have every line beginning with #. # means ignore this line. The last 2 lines may not have # in front of them. If so, delete them.

And it might help to put a shortcut to the path C:/Windows/System32/Drivers/etc in whatever place where you keep your other MSFS shortcuts, plane manuals, charts, information, etc. all together and organized.

I too have been having this issue ever since SU7. I get it every single time I try to fly. Sometimes I get the option to ignore, sometimes I don't. I've never downloaded the Google map mod. and I have a very fast, solid internet connection. I haven't been able to fly since the update at all. Before that, I've never had any connection issues.

I agree, the servers have been less than reliable lately.. 😉

The problem started after SU5 which is logical as a new wave of users came online. My conjecture is that  the bandwidth quota that Azure gives to MSFS is too small now, specially at peak times. That will probably not change for a while as MS would wait for the disaffection of part of the user base instead of building new capacities.

Rarely have any issues with bandwith, but since some days, I always get the message that my data could not be synchronized with the cloud, really annoying...

Evidently I did try the google map mod. I tried the editing host file post above, and that did the trick for me........smooth flying now.  Thank you to the ones who replied about the host file. Flew from KLAS to KPGE with a full stop taxi back at KGCN with no hiccups at all.

The internet in the US is a joke.

A phone tower that is not saturated doesn't exist.

Happened twice now, start a flight just before it loads in "Your bandwidth is too low, you have been switched to offline mode".  I'm on a wired 200GB connection and my speeds are just fine...

Is this a bug?

Thanks

What I hate is when this happens at times it force shuts off photogrammetry and greys out the option to turn it back on when the sim has a connection again (2 seconds later).  You have to restart the whole sim to get it back on again (I hate the comments, “I don’t use it anyway” like that’s a solution).  I posted about this in the official forums as we all are noticing this overall problem which started with SU5.

Another approach which worked for me, was to run the Google scenery mod and, whilst MSFS was loading, shut down the mod correctly by selecting "Stop". Then shutting down MSFS via Taskmaster and restarting. Worked. Mo hassle worrying about finding and editing any host file.

Thanks for everyones input as I was floundering for 2 days with the boradband width problem.

I have a fast connection, over 200.  And I get it a lot.  Yesterday, doing a flight from KORD to KATL, on approach in final, I got the message and lost all sight of the field.  That sucks.  Had to shut off the sim.  MS needs to address this.
