Important

  • The data exchange protocol has changed. You have to update Little Navconnect (if using remote/network connections) and Little Xpconnect (if using X-Plane) too.
  • Reload the scenery library database to see fixes and improvements.

Limitations

  • Translations are not updated yet. The user interface might be a mix of your local language and English. Map legend not updated. Feel free to send me an email or ask in the Avsim forum if you like to contribute a translation of the program or the manual.
  • The online and offline manuals are not updated yet. Neither the English nor the translated versions. Help buttons and links are functional but point to placeholder pages. Map legend not updated. Ask in the Avsim forum if you have questions.

Notable Changes from Release 2.4.5 to 2.6.0.beta

  • Microsoft Flight Simulator 2020 support. Little Navmap detects MSFS installation paths, can read the scenery library, follows user aircraft and can save/load flight plans also with procedures. See MSFS Limitations in the detailed changelog for known issues. Star airports in MSFS get a five star rating in Little Navmap.
  • Oceanic tracks: NAT, PACOTS and AUSOTS. Visible on map and can be used in flight planning as well as for automatic plan calculation. See Flight Plan -> Download Tracks.
  • Multi-export: Export more than one flight plan format at once with just one click. Formats and paths are configurable. See File -> Multi Export Flight Plan Options.
  • Improvements to logbook: A log entry now gets track and flight plan attached which can be saved or shown in preview.
  • Improved flight plan calculation. Can now calculate across regions which are void of airways. Can use oceanic tracks, avoid RNAV airways and more options. Flight Plan -> Calculate Flight Plan.
  • Little Navmap now uses its own flight plan format which allows removing most of the warning dialogs. Flight plan saving and loading logic has changed completely.
  • User can add remarks or comments on flight plan and flight plan waypoints. See tab Flight Plan Remarks in Flight Planning dock window. Right click on flight plan waypoint in plan table or map and select Edit Flight Plan Position Remarks.
  • Program suggests to create a recommended folder structure on first startup. Click Do not show this dialog again and press Cancel if you do not like this.
  • Better map context menu with sub-menus for easier selection of actions if more than one map object is below clicked position.
  • Replaced title bar information for mouse hover in elevation profile with tooltip window showing more information.
  • User can now select font for user interface and map display. Options dialog on pages User Interface and Map. See b612-font for an open source font used in aviation.
  • Free user interface language selection (if translation available). Change this in the dialog Options on page User Interface
  • Fullscreen mode maximizes map on one click or key press of Shift+F11. See Window -> Fullscreen Map.
  • Save and load window layouts for dock windows. This also saves toolbar positions and the main window size. See menu Window. Layouts are saved separately for both normal and fullscreen mode.
  • Optionally focus and raise dock windows or main window on mouse hover. Change this in Options on page User Interface.
  • Option to disallow docking windows from snapping back to main window when moving around. Can be toggled in menu Window -> Show all floating Windows.
  • Many changes in user interface for more usability. Better error reporting for flight plan and other issues.
  • Added new map display options. Text size and line width for airways, labels for measurement lines, airport diagram features and more. See dialog Options on pages Map Display and Map Display 2.
  • Now reading and showing X-Plane frigate and carrier as AI.
  • Many drawing issues fixed like disappearing lines near the date line, problems with procedures and symbols popping out at the map window border.
  • Tear off toolbar button menus, e.g. for userpoints. Click the dashed line to move the drop down menu to its own window.
  • SimConnect library is included now. A FSX SP2 SimConnect installation is not required.

See the included CHANGELOG.txt or here online for a complete list across all versions.

Hi, thank you very much for the MSFS support.

Is it possible to choose another disk/folder for the "Little NavMap Files" other than my documents folder located in the C: ?

You can use any folder to store your files. LNM is totally free in this regard.

LNM just gives a recommendation in the startup dialog. Simply disable the dialog ("Do not show again") and cancel out. Then save and load your files from any place.

Alex, I have downloaded "Beta" on to a client machine. For loading, I pointed to the PC with MSFS on it and loaded. However, I got this: Found 112 errors in 112 scenery entries when loading the scenery database. , I have noted that the load has pointed elsewhere to the C Drive on the client machine. Should this happen, or a bug?

Hi Martin,

do not point the remote to scenery libray on the flying computer. Create the scenery database using LNM on the MSFS machine and then copy it over to the remote/client. This should work the same way as with FSX, P3D or X-Plane.
It is explained step-by-step in the manual and did not change for MSFS except the database name: https://www.littlenavmap.org/manuals/littlenavmap/release/2.4/en/RUNNOSIM.html

I see, thanks. When I downloaded the beta, I replaced the LNC, but it says it is not the latest version

Well, this isn't working as per manual!

I have Beta loaded and open. I only get the option to point to Flight Simulator Base Path: D:\MSFSPackages. It has a message "Caught Exception" Not Null constraint failed; then a long text about waypoints, etc.

I cannot point to the Scenery Configuration File, it's greyed out.
