  1. This ok. Everything else is optional like installing the GLOBE elevation data. You can do this later. Loading the scenery library allows LNM to show and use all navaids, airports (stock and add-on) from the simulator. I'd recommend to quickly glance over the start page and also have brief look at the tutorials if you're new to the program. Alex
  2. There is an exception: If you run LNM in portable mode using the script "Little Navmap Portable Win.cmd" all settings are saved in the installation folder. If you remove the installation you will also remove the saved settings, trail and more. Probably does not affect you if you have a normal installation. Alex
  3. None if your settings is removed if you uninstall LNM (except you click "yes" when the uninstaller asks you to remove settings - simply click "no"). All is kept in the folder C:\Users\YOURUSERNAME\AppData\Roaming\ABarthel . The application folder is somewhere else. LNM will take over all trails, flight plans and other settings from the previous version even after uninstalling and installing. Anyway, it is always good to have a backup just in case. Simply create a copy of the folder "ABarthel" for that. The aircraft trail is saved in the file C:\Users\YOURUSERNAME\AppData\Roaming\ABarthel\little_navmap.track , BTW. All files and locations are documented here. Alex
  4. Yes. Of course the functionality did not change. So what is the problem? Trail from previous installation missing? Trail not shown at all? Alex

Alternative Download Locations - Look into sub-folders for beta, development or release candidates: ► Alternative Download Locations Notes This is a release candidate of Little Navmap which fixes several bugs and adds a few improvements and new features. Note that the program translations and the user manual have not been updated yet. macOS users: Keep in mind that you have to clear the quarantine flag when updating Little Xpconnect. See Clearing the Quarantine Flag on macOS. Reload the scenery library to see fixes like the duplicate COM frequencies for MSFS airports. A big thank you to all who reported bugs and issues! Changes from 3.0.6 to 3.0.7.rc1 Flight Plan Loading and Export Added export option for MSFS KLN 90B #1136 Added multiexport option for MSFS JustFlight BAE-14. This uses the QualityWings format. Made loading of MSFS PLN flight plan files more tolerant for missing altitude in element WorldPosition. Fixed issue where a wrong error message about invalid procedures appeared after loading a MSFS PLN file. The message appeared when saving loaded PLN as LNMPLN. Better cruise altitude estimate if altitude could not determined from the flight plan after loading. Altitude is rounded up to 2000 ft to the maximum of departure and destination elevation if all else fails. Changed file extensions in multiexport to be untranslatable for local language to avoid issues. Now adding STAR entry waypoint plus airway to MSFS PLN export in certain cases. Removing destination runway waypoints from MSFS PLN export if STAR is used. Weather Added interpolated weather reports for for NOAA, VATSIM, IVAO and X-Plane weather. These appear at airports having no METAR reports. Note that this does not cover cloud layers. Added wind display for landing and takeoff runway in flight plan table header. This uses station or interpolated winds as as selected in menu Weather -> Airport Weather Source. Added support for Active Sky FS (MSFS). Fixed issue where ActiveSky weather was not updated. Fixed crash that happened randomly when updating METAR data or switching between simulators with weather enabled. Added sunrise and sunset to weather report page in information dock window. Now showing weather stations with invalid reports crossed out on the map. Fixed wrong time zone for METAR reports from FSX/P3D. Better error messages for METAR decoding and outdated weather. More optimizations to weather handling. Random Flight Generation Added shortcut to random flight creation: Menu Flight Plan -> Generate Random Flight. This opens the search dock window and activates the controls to generate a random flight. Added a dialog window where a user can select either a fixed departure or a fixed destination airport for the random flight generation. Add at least one airport to your flight plan to enable this function. #1013 Random flight generation now puts the change on the undo/redo stack once the user accepts a generated flight. This is the same behavior as used in the flight plan route description which allows to restore a previous flight plan and its changes. Adjusted the maximum distance for random flight plan to realistic values. The maximum is 10.800 NM. Fixed the minimum and maximum distance for random flight search not being saved on exit. Performance improvements and random selection for departure and destination functionality by u-an-i. Procedures and Runway Selection Improved procedure search. Now showing the first and last waypoint of procedures in the procedure tree. Also showing the first and last waypoint of a selected procedure in the header. The header shows first and last for the full path including the procedure when selecting a transition. Search now also looks for first and last waypoint of procedures. Procedures and and transitions are hidden if no criteria match text search. Procedures are expanded if a transition matches the search text. This allows to find matching STAR for a selected approach and vice versa, for example. Procedure view now tries to keep content when switching simulators, provided the airport exists in both simulators. The procedure search tab now expands procedure branches already added to the flight plan. Procedures and/or respective transitions are expanded when showing procedures for departure or destination airport. Runway selection dialogs windows now have the current runway end from the flight plan preselected. The selection in procedure search is not saved anymore when changing airports to avoid unwanted highlighting on the map. Added Shift+F5 shortcut for procedure search. Fixed issue where switching between simulator databases left the procedure search in an invalid state resulting in a crash. Fixed issue where the show procedure menu item was not enabled in map context menu and others. Example: Weston (EIWT) on X-Plane. #1154 Procedures for a clicked airport can now be shown with checkbox Airports disabled in options on page Map Tooltips and Clicks. Added keyboard shortcuts in procedure search. Hit Return to show a procedure or a waypoint in the tree. Use the Down key to activate the tree from text input field. Logbook Added cruise altitude from used flight plan to logbook table. The logbook table layout is reset back to default. Logbook cleanup method improved. Extended function to cleanup off-airport coordinates like 2956N10702E 4831N12255W in addition to empty airport idents. Optimizations for aircraft trail loading and display for logbook entries. Map Display Added warning dialog if aircraft trail is too long after startup as a hint for performance issues. Also showing warning if trail was truncated after loading a GPX file. Fixed issue where updated maximum number of trail points was not applied until restart. Fixed crash when fetching tooltip information for short aircraft trails. Fixed disappearing flight plans and aircraft trails on high zoom distances or long flight plans. #1126 Fixed display issue where userpoints without type were hidden. Optimized code for userpoint display. AI/multiplayer aircraft labels not have a … appended if labels texts are suppressed due to higher zoom distances Reworked aircraft label code. Added internal object ID as optional aircraft label for AI/multiplayer. Enable this in options on page Map Labels in branch AI, Multiplayer and Online Client Aircraft. Fixed wrong bearing for nearest radio navaids of airport in information dock window. Used wrong magnetic declination instead of airport value. Attempt to fix not updating sun shading. #1125 Optimizations for airspace name and aircraft trail display. Scenery Library Now bailing out early when reading malformed BGL files from MSFS resulting in endless loop. Example: Broken UWLS.bgl. Fix for crash when reading BGL files having invalid airports. Fixed COM frequency duplicates in MSFS scenery library with Navigraph navdata update installed. Reload the scenery library to see the fix. Information and Aircraft Progress Now keeping airport, VOR, NDB, procedure, waypoint, userpoint and logbook information when switching between simulators. Omitting wrong X-Plane propeller ice indications for jets in user aircraft progress now. Better formatting in weather and runway information. Corrected wrong text for bearing from user aircraft. Now showing bearing and distance from user aircraft instead of to. User Interface Added hint and link to clear the map tile cache in add Mapbox style dialog when changing or updating the Mapbox user map. Fixed issues where coordinates received the wrong sign near Meridian line when using Google coordinates. This resulted in misplaced userpoints or distance rings. Corrected inconsistent naming for arrival/approach. Now using both in related user interface elements. Reworked database error reporting to include more information. SQLite scenery library databases open read only now. Non-blocking dialog windows now remember position. This covers Flight Plan Calculation, Logbook Statistics and Flight Plan Route Description dialog windows. Resetting all non-blocking windows to default size and center position now when using Reset window layout to avoid windows being lost off-screen. Also re-centering the main window when resetting layout from window menu. Added message dialog to Reset all Messages for clarification. Fixed issue where application was still detected as running when trying to send a command through the command line. Added -q / --quit command line argument to exit an already running instance. New icons for 32 and 64 bit Windows builds to easier see the difference if both are installed. More checks to avoid crashes. Web Interface Fixed missing aircraft trail in web interface. Fixed KML overlays not shown on the web interface. Improvements and fixes by u-an-i and KOKAProduktion Default display mode now uses a new navigation method. Click to center the map around the click-spot and use the mouse wheel to zoom in or out. The plugin Dynamic touch and drag map enables a dynamic map which has smooth scrolling (click-and-move) as well as zooming with the mouse wheel. Note that neither the AI/multiplayer aircraft nor the flight tracks of the user aircraft are shown in this mode. Small display errors like duplicate labels can appear. Legacy map removed. More restructuring, performance improvements and updated documentation for the web frontend in general, web API, web plugin API, web toolbar API and web theming CSS templates; useful for developers and people who wish to enhance or modify the web frontend experience. Installation Windows installer now checks for running program on install and uninstall to avoid a broken installation. Changed Linux archive to XZ format for smaller files. Added Debian installation packages provided by Daniel Buschke tuxmainy. This package installs Little Navmap and Little Navconnect. Little Xpconnect can still be installed using the menu item Install Little Xpconnect in X-Plane plugins in the menu Tools. Installer has a new icon to avoid confusion with the program file. See the included CHANGELOG.txt or here online for a complete list across all versions. All files are checked by VirusTotal.
  6. This is probably the aircraft trail which you can hide in the View menu or delete it in menu Map. Anyway, a screenshot would help (https://www.avsim.com/forums/topic/605519-how-to-post-a-screenshot-or-files/). Don't understand what you mean by a new install and why this should be needed. Use the installer and install 3.0.6. Almost all settings are kept. Only a few have to adapted again. See changelog for notes about this. Alex
  7. The zoom for the menu item "Go to User aircraft" (Ctrl+PgUp) and similar functions can be defined on the page "Map Navigation": You can also enable and disable "Map follows user aircraft" (Ctrl+Alt+A) to jump back to the aircraft. For flying try these settings: As a result LNM will not change the zoom (you can set it manually) but keep your aircraft in the center of the screen. Alex
  8. Hi Norm, good catch.👍 LNM misses the sign in the coordinate output if you click west of the Meridian line but only if you're close to it. Will fix for 3.0.7. Alex
  9. LNM can digest all kind of coordinate formats independent of the output format. The decimal degree output settings in options are the only ones which can affect reading (lat/lon vs. lon/lat). I cannot rule out the possibility of errors when reading coordinates in LNM but I just checked with Google coordinates and the point does not move. Means LNM can read its own format. Alex
  10. What is 52 20.75, 0 56.58? Degree and decimal minutes? I think you miss the N/S/E/W designators or a sign. You have to enter N52 20.75, W0 56.58 or 52 20.75, -0 56.58 (Google format) which results in 52° 0' 0,00" N 0° 56' 34,80" W. Otherwise LNM puts you on the wrong side of the Meridian. See here for details: https://www.littlenavmap.org/manuals/littlenavmap/release/latest/en/COORDINATES.html Alex
  11. LNM fetches all data through the MSFS SimConnect interface. So I'm limited by what it provides. But looking at the SimConnect documentation I think I can use the field dwObjectID in the SIMCONNECT_RECV_SIMOBJECT_DATA structure. Have to check. Not sure if this is the same as the container id but might be the number you're looking for. I can add an option to show this as a label attached to the aircraft icon (off per default). Alex
  12. No idea what's wrong there without a screenshot. Too small icons? Wrong layout? You can change a setting in some browsers to show the page in desktop layout. Maybe this helps. Alex
