Saving measurements to VOR/NDB

Recommended Posts

I'm just getting into Little Nav Map as it seems to offer what I've needed for as long as I've been simming.

This last one I haven't found anywhere else and I suspect it's because I don't do navigation properly. Basically I like to do GA VFR flights with the help of VORs where I'd otherwise get lost (which I easily do). So for example, this would be a typical flight for me though a bit on the short side. Less than an hour. Visit some POIs, no VORs/NDBs en route or practical to use as waypoints. It's EGXD to EGXX, I'd use the bearing to OTR to help me find my way to York (and York Cathedral) if I get lost in the hills, then I'd join the radial from POL to get on track to Whitby.

So, this is my question - if I create this plan on my laptop and transfer it to my flying PC I lose the measurements to the VORs. Is there a way of storing these with the flight plan? Any advice much appreciated.

Thanks for this great and massive application.

Phil

These are stored in the little_navmap.ini file and not in the flight plan. The measurement lines are stored in the section "[Map]" using the key "DistanceMarkers", for example. Range rings are "RangeMarkers".

Thanks, I thought that might be session related. Without getting into a navigation tutorial I don't suppose there's a way of incorporating the purpose of these measurements into a flight plan - some change of process for me that would achieve what I'm after?

In real life (at least here in the USA), one can't include your request in a flight plan. See https://www.cfinotebook.net/notebook/navigation-and-flight-planning/vfr-and-ifr-flight-plans for how to use flight plans.

The measurements are global features and are not assigned to a plan, sorry. You can copy the whole ini file to the other computer but this will also copy all settings, paths, file history and more.
