Recommended Posts

Hello, I'm wondering if anyone knows if it's possible to get possition data from flightsimulator x, and if possible, how do I get this data?

Well, to answer the question better, you may need to provide a LOT more information about how you'd use this data.Your position on the simulated Earth is tracked via latitude and longitude at all times. If you want to know where you are at a given moment, probably the easiest way to do that is to click the following menu:World / MapYour latitude, longitude, altitude, heading and airspeed will be displayed, along with a map of your position and surrounding navaids.If you want streaming positional data as you are flying, you should investigate the use of the simconnect application that comes with the SDK that shipped with the Deluxe Version of FSX. Using simconnect, you can retrieve all kinds of live data from the flight simulator as you are flying.Cheers,

You can also use the fsuipc product. Dowson also sells an addon called gpsout which will extract the position data and format it into standard NMEA messages that simulate a gps receiver output. scott s..
