There are so many different addons available for planning flights, following flights and I'm getting more & more confused. I would like to do what you do in the planning screen in the sim but with better results. I want to pick a departure & arrival airport and input multiple GPS coordinates that I want to fly over along the route. Once flying I'd like to follow where I'm going on a map cast to another computer or tablet. The in sim planner and VFR map are a joke. If you plot multiple GPS coordinates it chooses which ones to go to despite the order you input them into the plan. I've done plans with 6 points added and the screen looks like a zigzag back & forth pattern instead of the way I planned it. Any ideas on what program or programs I need to use to accomplish this?

I've tried that before and didn't have any luck. I downloaded the Global Land data set but can't find the "Select Globe Directory" button it shows in the user manual. My other question is, if I want to view the flight following on a map feature on a laptop and MSFS is on my main desktop which one do I install LNM and simconnect on?
