GPS export in FS2004

Recommended Posts

The MS panel SDK for FS2002 was provided with a sample code and a DLL (gps_export.dll) that allowed to read the GPS flight plan information. This does not work in FS2004.Do you know how to read the GPS flight plan info in FS2004?Do you know if Microsoft has plans to release the same SDK for FS2004?Thanks for any help !!Eric

I have no problems using gps_export.dll in FS2004. My F-16 panel is still able to retrieve flight plan info using it. Did you try putting gps_export.dll in the modules folder and using it?

Thanks for your help !!It appears that gps_export.dll works fine in FS2004, just lije it did in FS2002. I had a little bug that made me think there was a change here, sorry for this...Bill, can you tell me how you found all these new variables?Is there a new FS2004 SDK that I haven't seen yet?Eric

At the very least it gives "food for thought" and "fuel for experimentation..." :)BillAVSIM OmbudsmanFounder and Director,Creative Recycling of Aircraft Partshttp://catholic-hymns.com/frbill/FS2002/images/fartslogo.jpg
