    GPS with updated fixes, etc

    Thank you so much! I'll probably go ahead and subscribe. Little Navmap looks pretty interesting as well.

    Thanks Ernie, I hadn't heard of fsAerodata. It looks like it's exactly what I need. I already tried the one at Aero.sors but it didn't do what I needed. Thank you! Ken

    Great, thanks!
  4. Hello all, I'm back from another of my long term breaks from FS. I mainly like to fly small GA aircraft and have been using the stock 172 since I started flying again last week. However, I would like to use the GPS with charts (from SimPlates) to fly actual GPS approaches. Unfortunately, the stock FSX not unexpectedly has very outdated intersections and nav aids. I found one thing I thought might update them but it does not appear to have done so. Can anyone either recommend a way to do this or recommend a good add-on GPS or small GA plane with GPS that can have it's nav data updated? Thanks! Ken

    I just discovered this software today after a long hiatus from flight sim. Thank you very much for this wonderful utility! Ken

    Farewell to Tom Allensworth

    Haven't checked in here for a while, so I just saw the news of Tom's passing. My sincere condolences to his family and everyone in the Avsim community. Ken

    I am truly saddened to hear this Tom. I wish for peace and comfort for you and your family. Thank you so much for Avsim and everything else you've done for our community. The sim community is so much the better for your having been in it. Ken Pryor
  8. Seriously considering the Cessna 310.

    Taking an unplanned break from FS

    And we're back! I had already tried everything suggested except the jumper setting idea Jim mentioned. That did the trick! It's now back up and running. Thank you to all for your suggestions! Ken

    Wow! That's impressive indeed. I will upgrade...eventually. Gotta save my pennies for a while.

    Taking an unplanned break from FS

    So there I was, thinking how great it would be if I could tweak things just a little bit more to squeeze just a few more frames per second out of FSX and X-Plane. A little overclocking never hurt anyone, right? Yea... Made a little progress by upping the cpu clock speed, running my I7-920 up from 2.67 to 3.0 ghz. Was I satisfied at this point? Nope. Made a tiny adjustment on the memory voltage and now I got nothing. Can't even get to the post screen or bios. I'm hoping I can just swap out the ram and everything will work again, but if not I guess I'll be waiting until I can afford some replacement parts. Kicking myself, Ken
  13. I'm much the same way and find myself in FS9 much more than in FSX. I built my system in preparation for the release of FSX and found myself disappointed when the time came. Don't get me wrong, FSX has some very nice features and I do use it some, but not as much as FS9. I bought Active Sky Next and Rex Texture Direct when I started getting back into FS and they're great, but I'm wishing I had spent my money on Active Sky Evolution and Rex for FS9 instead. I'm currently using Active Sky 6.5 for FS9 and GE Pro. Ken
