  1. Little Xpconnect Updated to 1.0.19 for X-Plane 11.50 Direct download: Windows - macOS - Linux (64 bit, based on Ubuntu 18.04) - Linux (64 bit, based on Ubuntu 16.04) Fix for potential crash with new X-Plane multiplayer/tcas implementation as of 11.50. This fixes a problem which can crash X-Plane if you use Traffic addons injecting more than 20 aircraft.
  2. Little Navmap 2.4.5 No changes in relation to 2.4.5.rc1. This release candidate adds support for Prepar3D v5, Chinese user interface translation and a few bug fixes. Note that not all reported issues are fixed. Most will be fixed in the next major update version 2.6 (2.5 is only internal) which I'm working on in parallel. Direct download: Windows - macOS - Linux (64 bit, based on Ubuntu 18.04) - Linux (64 bit, based on Ubuntu 16.04) Alternative download locations: Dropbox - Mega.nz - OneDrive ► Screenshots ► Online Manuals ► Features Changes from Release 2.4.4 to 2.4.5.rc1 See CHANGELOG.txt in littlenavmap project for changes across all versions. P3D v5 #512 Added P3D v5 to simulator detection. Adapted loading of BGL files to P3D v5 structure changes and added new records as well as new COM and other types. Enabled loading of add-on packages from %USERPROFILE%\Documents\Prepar3D v5 Add-ons. Fixed Crashes and other Errors Fixed crash to desktop when adding an approach after a list of user defined waypoints. #500 Fixed error reporting in wind download and decoding. Program does not crash to desktop if wind download has errors. #480 Now limiting weather display to the 10 most important/biggest airports if connected via network or SimConnect to P3D/FSX. This minimizes map stutters when scrolling or zooming. #497 Disable display of airport weather symbols if stutters still appear: Menu Weather -> Airport Weather Source: Select anything but Simulator. Or menu View: Disable Show Airport Weather. Fixed crash when entering an invalid ICAO in web interface for airport information. #491 Fixed wrong handling of Options/RenderOpt setting in little_navmap.ini. Corrected encoding when exporting flightplan as HTML page. User Interface: Fixed spelling and typos in user interface. Small UI changes in connection dialog for more clarity. Added word wrap to avoid dialogs growing too large in user interface. Better display on mobile devices for webserver. Updated German legend. Build and Deployment for Developers Added option to include common ../build_options.pro file with defines for qmake. related from atools version 3.4.6.rc1 Fixed error reporting in wind download and decoding. #480 Added option to include common “../build_options.pro” file with defines for qmake. Chinese translation by John Liu. related from atools version 3.4.6 See CHANGELOG.txt in atools project for more technical details. Relevant comments were added to list above.

  3. Direct download: Windows - macOS - Linux (64 bit) Alternative download locations: Dropbox - Mega.nz ► Screenshots ► User manuals for Little Navmap and Little Navconnect in all formats and languages. ► Features Notes This release contains small bugfixes, new keyboard shortcuts, enabled IVAO online network, AviTab export and more flight plan export formats. Changes from Release 2.2.3 to 2.2.4 Flight Plan Export Added saving and loading of FlightGear XML flight plans (.fgfp) also covering SID and STAR. #361 MDX flight plan export for Leonardo Maddog X added. #232 Added RTE flight plan export for QualityWings aircraft. #335 Export for AivlaSoft EFB (.efbr version 1 - currently no SID and STAR). #226 Added saving of PNG or JPG map images for AviTab to file menu. Includes JSON calibration file. #310 Added flight plan export for online networks including dialog for additional data. #317 (vPilot, VFP) and #176 (IVAP and X-IVAP, FPL) Added FPL flight plan export for FeelThere aircraft. #206 New flight plan export for Level-D (.rte). #206 Adapted flight plan file type detection to new formats and improved it for drag and drop loading. Files are now accepted for dropping/loading independent of file extension. Now automatically suggesting a numbered filename if file already exists when exporting or using Save as. Same for aircraft performance files. Reorganized export flight plan menu items into categories (Aircraft, Online, etc.) for better overview. Changed default export folder for aircraft flight plan formats to use simulator base folder instead of Documents. Online Networks Enabled IVAO online network support based on mirror on www.littlenavmap.org. #244 Now displaying flight simulator type in information window for online network clients. Help Changed default email, manual and help link URLs from Gitbook to www.littlenavmap.org. #238 Manuals in all formats and languages can be found here: Little Navmap and Little Navconnect Manuals. Moved help URLs into configuration file urls.cfg which can be overloaded in settings directory. #238 Map Fixed issue where MORA data was displayed only with Navigraph data enabled. Now always shown independent of selection. #331 Changed taxiway color for better visibility with light backgrounds. Added taxiway colors and pens to little_navmap_mapstyle.ini to allow configuration. Logbook userpoint icon now displayed using an offset from airport icon to avoid covering the airport symbol. Hotspot of logbook userpoint is now top left of the symbol. #366 Changed AI/multiplayer aircraft on ground to appear earlier when zooming in. Now disabling text in MORA display if it gets too small to avoid garbled up display. Now hiding the scalebar when saving map images. Scale bar is now only included when printing. Fixed several display issues with procedure legs. Flight Plan and Performance Fixed issue where selecting a parking position as departure resulted in zero cruising altitude in flight plan (FSX/P3D .pln). Now disabling aircraft performance collection when sim is paused or replaying (replay only detected on X-Plane). Relaxed maximum distance requirements for waypoints in route string parser. Airports are now always used independent of distance to previous waypoint. This allows to build plans like EDDF KORD EDDM. #376 Fixed display and conversion issues in aircraft performance when using metric units. Vertical descent speed, descent speed and descent rule of thumb now displayed correctly. Fixed route description parser to ignore runway designations attached to airport like USSS/08R ... ZMUB1200/33. Route description parser can now read long SID and STAR names like ENVA UTUNA1A vs. ENVA UTUN1A. Scenery Library Airports with open helipads and closed runways are now considered open. Now considering helipads for rating calculation for airports. Fixed issue with error messages when loading OpenAIR files with missing airspace class. Now omitting only the invalid airspaces instead of the whole file. Now looking for registry keys in a case insensitive manner to avoid problems where FSX or P3D could not be found. User Interface Added function key shortcuts in menu Window -> Shortcuts to have quick access to search, flight plan, map and more. #364 Added shortcuts to switch between styles Fusion (Shift+F2) and Night (Shift+F3). Added links to airport folder Documents/Little Navmap Files/ICAO for airport information. Links to all files in the related folder are shown if the path exists for an airport with the given ICAO ident. The path is locale sensitive, e.g. in German Dokumente/Little Navmap Dateien/ICAO. This depends on completeness of the translation. Try both variants (Files vs. your system language) if in doubt. Clicking on a link opens the file in the default editor or viewer of the system. Fixed wrong test in options dialog for online status.txt file. Now looking for the correct values to verify the file or download. Default folder is now the simulator base path when selecting exclusions in the options dialog on tab Scenery Library Database. Fixed issue where date display used 12 hour time without AM/PM indicator. Now always using 24 hour time for UTC time display. Moved all context menus a few pixels off the cursor to avoid accidental selection of first entry on touchpads or some mice. Changed lengthy prefix for custom map themes to * in the drop down box on the toolbar. Limited text length for files and paths in scenery loading dialog to avoid growing the progress dialog too large. Weather Fixed default NOAA and VATSIM weather URLs to use HTTPS/SSL. Added migration code to convert NOAA weather URL to use SSL/HTTPS if user left URL unchanged. Made METAR parser more tolerant for invalid temperature values not separated by a /. Fixed issues with missing weather updates when switching airport weather. Configuration Now reading environment variable LNM_RENDERER for potential fixes on crashes or graphic problems. To use desktop OpenGL renderer set it to desktop. Use Angle to DirectX adapter for rendering: angle. To use the software renderer set it to software. Added [Options] / PixmapCache allowing to change pixmap cache size as a potential fix for disappearing icons. Added preliminary options for manual application of user interface font configuration in settings. #373. Example: [Options] GuiFontFamily=FONTNAME GuiFontFile=FILE.ttf (Optional) GuiFontPixelSize=12 (Optional) [Options] / Language override in settings file now fixed for online help and legend loading. related from Little Xpconnect version 1.0.14 Fixed issue with AI detection where aircraft remained on map moving along with the user aircraft after deleting AI in simulator. Now linking Xpconnect statically to Qt to avoid plugin conflicts with libaries in Linux. See the included CHANGELOG.txt or here online for a complete list across all versions. All files are checked by VirusTotal.

User Interface User interface translation is complete for the languages French, Italian, German and Brazilian Portuguese. Other translations (Spanish and Dutch) are not adapted and the program will show a mix of English and the local language. Many thanks to Patrick, Flavio, Valerio and Ricardo for their work. Tabs can now be closed and moved in information display, aircraft progress, flight plan and search. #437 and #345 A drop down menu in a button at the right top corner and a context menu on the tab bar allow to close, open and lock tabs. Tab states and positions are saved between sessions. Tabs are opened and/or raised on demand on info click or menu selection. Reset window layout also resets tab layout and reopens all closed. Now raising windows and/or tabs optionally on actions like e.g. Set Destination. Also after loading, importing or creating a new flight plan, aircraft performance file or others. This should help to avoid confusion when creating new or modifying documents. This behavior can be disabled in Options -> User Interface -> Raise related windows .... Moved map theme and projection into separate toolbar. This helps to avoid toolbar overflow on the right for the map toolbar. Added menu item to save all options and window layout. Menu Tools -> Save Options and State. #420 Renamed dock window Flight Plan to Flight Planning and tab Aircraft Performance to Fuel Report. Added Reset all Settings and Restart function in tools menu which replaces the need to delete the settings folder in case of issues. This will create a backup of the little_navmap.ini and erase all contents afterwards. Stacks of tabbed dock windows are now completely closed if one of the docks in the stack is closed by using the shortcut, menu or toolbar. Closed stacks are reopened completely if one of the dock windows is reopened or activated. Stacked dock windows are now correctly raised on shortcut or other activation. Before the stack of dock windows was raised only but the dock window was still hidden. Style macintosh is now usable on smaller screens for macOS. Tabs took up too much space previously and prevented dock windows from shrinking. More improvements for macOS user interface. Many more user interface improvements. Options Replaced tabs in options dialog with list including icons and tooltips for better overview. Added option for high DPI high resolution display support. Dialog Options -> User Interface -> Enable high DPI .... Added option to disable proposed filename when doing Save as or Export and file already exists. Dialog Options -> User Interface -> Propose new name .... #433 Added option to add true heading/course to all values in display in smaller font. This affects all information, progress and tooltip displays. Can be selected in Options -> Units -> Show true course .... Useful for flying in areas with high or unreliable magnetic declination. Added option to ignore radio navaid declination when calculating magnetic flight plan leg course. This is helpful if you use mostly GPS for flying and do not care about radials of VOR which might have an outdated calibration. Dialog Options -> Flight Plan -> Ignore Declination .... Other fuel units (kg/liter vs. lb/gal) can now be displayed in small font besides selected fuel unit. This affects the fuel plan and aircraft progress tabs. See dialog Options -> Units -> Show other fuel units too. #401 Added new coordinate formats for display and reading: Plain latitude/longitude or longitude/latitude numbers with sign. Can be selected in Options -> Units -> Coordinates. Not that this also affects the order (lat/lon vs. lon/lat) when reading coordinates in dialogs if selected. Added options to change MORA grid transparency and text size. Dialog Options -> Map Display 2. #343 Added separate size option for airport weather icons. Added text display options for flight plan legs. Now one can select distance and true/magnetic/rhumb/great circle indicators. Labels indicating type will be shown and values will be merged if equal. Options -> Map Display 2 -> Flight Plan in tree. #365 Changed defaults in options dialog to more sensible values. This will affect only new users after selecting Reset all Settings and Restart in the tools menu. Fixed several issues with Restore Defaults function in options dialog where values were not reset at all or reset to the wrong defaults. Restore defaults in options dialog can now be reverted by pressing cancel. Scenery Database Added recursive import of OpenAir airspaces for user database from folder. #236 and #426 New folder setting in options dialog for default airspace base folder and file extensions. See dialog Options -> Cache and Files. Load airspaces from folder in Scenery Library -> Load Airspaces .... Added switches in menu for airspace source databases and added separate user airspace database. User can now choose between any combination of simulator, Navigraph, user or online airspaces. Menu View -> Airspace Source. Removed online airspace button and function to copy airspaces from P3D to X-Plane. Removed option to read airspaces from Documents/Little Navmap in X-Plane compiler. Made airspace databases independent of navdata switch. Added better error message about missing scenery_packs.ini for X-Plane. Added geomagnetic model calculation for X-Plane compilation based on current year and month. #300 Resulting table is written into database when compiling scenery library. Showing error dialog about missing declination data. Falling back to world magnetic model if database is empty now. Added support for the new gui_label 3D attribute in X-Plane 11.35 and higher. This gives a more precise detection of 3D airports now which will be consistent with the X-Plane airport selection and can be used to hide Empty Airports. #424 and #410 Added support for X-Plane 8.33 kHz frequency spacing. #409 Added real ICAO code to airport to avoid issues with X-Plane’s artificial airport ids. Now finds procedures for e.g. “AT4” where ICAO is actually “CAT4”. X-Plane FMS flight plan is now adjusted for real ICAO airport idents when using procedures to avoid problems loading plan. Fixed issue where FSX was wrongly selected on initial startup on Linux or macOS. Fixed issue where scenery entries were read despite being disabled in add-ons.cfg for P3D. Discovery paths from add-ons.cfg are now read for P3D. Information and Aircraft Progress Added ILS map tooltip, Show information in map context menu and information display. #386 Click on ILS shows information in Navaid tab. Zoom to ILS on double click in map or selecting Map link in information display. Added offset localizer hint to ILS information if runway heading does not match ILS heading. Displaying ILS source for clarification in information panel. Either Navigraph or Simulator. Added preferred runways depending on wind conditions to tooltip, airport information tab and as detailed table including runway surface and length to weather tab. #187 Aircraft progress tab now shows red warning text for icing and insufficient fuel. Progress tab now shows orange warnings if fuel and time have to be estimated because of invalid aircraft performance or an invalid flight plan. Shows also orange warning text if fuel is below reserve at destination (needs valid aircraft performance). Now showing orange warning text if no active flight plan leg can be found if aircraft is too far from plan. Tab Aircraft on window Simulator Aircraft shows gross weight as red warning text if heavier than max weight. Now displaying more fuel values and weights in alternative units as small text in information window and progress window. See above in Options. #401 Added new tab to show nearest map objects around selected airport: One list with airports having procedures and one list with radio navaids. #344 Added highlighting of whole airway strings from information window similar to airspaces. #348 Highlighted airways as well as highlighted airspaces have tooltips now. Thickness of highlighted lines (airspace boundaries, airways, etc.) and text size can now now adjusted with option settings (Options -> Map Display 2 -> Range rings, ...). Added links to FlightAware, SkyVector, X-Plane Gateway and OpenNav web pages in airport information which link to the airport information pages on the respective sites. Fuel and time prediction in aircraft progress tab is now based on aircraft performance (if available and valid) and therefore more accurate. Will fall back to an estimate based on current speed and fuel consumption if aircraft performance is not valid. Added IATA and ICAO codes to airport information display if available. Fixed airport file links to use both English and translated path names. Airport Tab - Files. Flight Plan Added support for alternate airports to map display, flight plan, printing, web server, drag and drop editing, all flight plan move, delete, edit and append functions as well as all relevant context menus. Fuel calculation considers farthest alternate in fuel calculation now. #230 Added reset all function to quickly set up program for a new flight. Menu File -> Reset all for a new Flight. Added dialog to show or hide columns in flight plan table. See context menu of flight plan table. Context menu item Select visible Columns. Added columns for true rhumb and true great circle course to flight plan table. Better messages about missing and invalid flight plan. Now adding tooltip to empty flight plan table space and header label with hints if plan is empty. Same for procedure search. This should help new users. Now clearly describing which flight plan legs violate altitude restrictions in tooltip of error message. #347 Edit flight plan position now allows to use shortcut Return for editing of user defined flight plan waypoints. Improved route description parser. Now using VOR if a VOR and NDB with the same name are close by (for example LOWI VIC FAL PRU TEA LIRN). Showing minimum and maximum altitude for airways in flight plan table now. Airway now shown as red text if either direction, minimum or maximum altitude is violated. Tooltips on red text in flight plan table now show information for airway restriction violations or invalid waypoints. Fixed issue where procedure information was lost when loading flight plan into a database which does not contain procedures or after switching databases. User set cruise altitude remains unchanged now after victor or jet calculation when east/west rule adjustment is off. Cruise altitude is now adjusted to next valid value for east/west rule based on the current value entered in the user interface. Was always set to lowest allowed value. Now also lowering or raising cruise altitude if not valid for used airways when using jet or victor calculation. Fixed magnetic course calculation when flying outbound from a VOR. Magnetic Declination. Fixed several crashes and other issues. Flight Plan Export Added separate export menu item for X-IvAp since format differs slightly from IvAp. #395 Fixed more issues with IVAP export. Alternate airports are now pre-filled in online format export. Added TFDi Design 717 flight plan export format. #399 Now omitting final DCT for flight factor aircraft export to corte.in. Should fix loading of flight plans without STAR. #394 Fixed Maddog X export to use correct file extension mdr. Fixed missing = in cruise altitude for BBS Airbus export. #396 Added flight plan table export to HTML page. #4 Fixed issue when saving flight plans from airports with empty names which could crash Prepar3D. More fixes around flight plan saving and export. Route Description Added missing alternate airport parsing functionality to route description dialog. Route description can now read and write more than one alternate airport to and from the string. Added option to drop down menu button to output alternate airports to string. Added option to route description dialog drop down menu button that allows to read trailing airports either as alternate airports or simply add the airports as waypoints. Better error, warning and information messages now when reading route descriptions. Profile Display Keeping aircraft more on the lest and on bottom of elevation profile when climbing and on top of profile if descending to avoid manual scrolling. Fixed problem where aircraft trail was not recorded in elevation profile when window was closed or program was hidden/minimized. Fixed issue where flight plan and elevation profile was built incorrectly if waypoints were not valid in plan. Weather Added NOAA and X-Plane high altitude wind forecast (Prepar3D does neither provide a documented format nor an interface). #283 This shows the NOAA wind aloft forecast which is updated four times a day and is used as a source by most weather programs and simulators. Display of wind barbs for selected altitude, flight plan altitude and/or at flight plan waypoints. Toolbar button with drop down menu or menu View -> Wind Levels allow to select wind display. Tooltip on map shows wind for several layers when hovering over a wind barb. Setting for wind barbs tooltip on Options -> Map Display. Hovering over the elevation profile shows wind at position in the header line of the elevation profile. Fuel planning now considers high altitude winds. The manual cruise wind selection is still available and can be used to override the downloaded winds. Top of climb and top of descent and now adjusted for head- and tailwind. See menu View -> Wind Levels and Wind Source, dialog Options -> Map -> Tooltips and Options -> Weather -> Files and web addresses for wind reports. Download and processing can be disabled in menu if not needed. Added display of gusts as red lines in wind barbs for airport weather. Fixed several METAR parsing issues related to no data like ///. #441 Now ignoring ASX weather files written for X-Plane and fixed excessive logging about missing file. #422 Full NOAA METAR file is now downloaded to avoid time consuming single web requests for airports. Weather display is now faster on map for NOAA METARs. Changed NOAA download URL in dialog Options. #359 Added option to change X-Plane METAR.rwx path to allow custom file, e.g. for remote setups across a share. Added error dialog if weather downloads fail. Moved wind and airport weather source from menu View to new menu Weather since these functions also affect flight planning and not just the map display. Online Networks Added two options to fetch online center boundary from user airspaces. Now optionally looking up geometry for online centers either by airspace name or filename. Falling back to circle shape if not present. See dialog Options -> Map Display Online -> Online Center Boundary Lookup .... Disabled wrong rounding of frequencies for online centers. Now displaying as given. Changed AI and online network aircraft icon colors for better visibility. This is also reflected in the toolbar buttons. The aircraft icons can still be overloaded by the user. Enabled PilotEdge network. #388 Map Added option to display holding on map similar to traffic pattern. Holding can be customized before adding to map. See map, search and flight plan context menu item Add Holding at position. #326 Added menu items and drop down button to hide or show user features like range rings, holdings, measurement lines and traffic patterns. See menu View -> User Features. Context menu items for range rings, measurement lines, holds and patterns are now disabled with a remark in the menu text when respective user feature is hidden on the map. You have to enable the respective user feature before you can add one on the map. Special shortcut clicks on the map like e.g. Shift+Left Mouse button for range rings enable display of the respective user features silently if hidden. Traffic patterns and holdings have tooltips now. Added warning dialog before deleting all user features. Warning dialog can be disabled. Added small direction arrows for one-way airways which are shown in overview. Updated traffic pattern dialog with better table view instead of the simple combo box. Double click in pattern dialog now confirms dialog and adds pattern to the map. Now disabling all tooltips while doing drag and drop operations: Flight plan changes, dragging measurement lines and userpoint movement. #337 Increased maximum number of map objects from 4000 to 8000. Disabled OpenMapSurfer since map is not publicly available at the given URL anymore, needs an API key and has download limitations now. Added dialog to image export for files, AviTab and clipboard that allows to choose an arbitrary image resolution. This allows to export high resolution and highly detailed maps. A download timer allows to wait for online map updates to avoid blurry maps. #377 and #384 Corrected View -> Reset Display Settings function and added missing display features to reset (weather, airspace sources, user features and more). Fixed double drawing of waypoints and navaids which are part of a flight plan. Corrected display priorities from map context menu. Logbook is now prioritized before userpoint before airport for all actions. Map Navigation Added Click to center map navigation mode where mouse wheel zooms to center position. Also added new Map Areas navigation mode using click/touch zones on the map screen. The latter mode is helpful for touchscreen navigation. Both navigation options can be selected on new tab Map Navigation in the options dialog. Map Areas still allows the classic navigation if clicking outside the active zones. #380 and #411 Navigation aids like symbols, center cross and navigation areas for the above mentioned navigation modes can be enabled in Options -> Map Display 2 -> Navigation Aids in tree. Procedures Added custom, user defined final approaches made of final leg altitude and distance to threshold which allows to see the approach path including ground, VASI and/or ILS slope in the elevation profile. The custom approaches consist of an initial fix and a runway fix. #307 Fixed many procedure decoding and drawing issues: #406, #408, #379, #336 and #370 Fixed procedure drawing for course/heading to radial termination legs. Fixed procedure issues with track from fix to DME distance legs and similar. Removed unnecessary intercept instructions at course reversal procedures. Fixes for display of manual procedure legs. Now connecting manual legs to next leg or airport using a dotted line. Now also drawing vector legs as dashed line. Fixed display of SID that start with an initial fix. Now using vectors leg. Example: ENSG EVNA1F Fixed issue where first course to fix procedure leg was missing intercept point. Fixed procedure decoding which wrongly used the final endpoint fix altitude as a restriction. Fixed several issues with runways from simulator database having no 0 prefix. Now removing all flight plan waypoints that overlap with procedure points when adding a new procedure for an already calculated flight plan. Userpoints Moved user point information out of information tab Navaids and added separate information tab for user defined waypoints. Custom userpoint icons now allow SVG, PNG, JPG and GIF image formats. Added new default userpoint types VOR, VORDME, VORTAC, DME, TACAN, NDB and lighthouse. Fixed crash and missing updates in information window when deleting userpoints. Aircraft Performance #367, #340 and #339. Removed manual option to collect performance and introduced background collection which is running permanently now. Tab Current Performance in window Flight Planning. New dialog for merging current performance at any time with collected aircraft performance or another performance file. See menu Aircraft -> Merge Collected ... and menu Aircraft -> Open Aircraft Performance and merge ... Added new tab Current Performance showing collected values. Renamed tab Aircraft Performance to Fuel Report. Function New Aircraft Performance shows edit dialog now to avoid confusion. Aircraft performance dialog now allows to switch between US and metric units independent of program settings. Added alternate speed, alternate fuel flow, minimum runway length, runway type and usable fuel to aircraft performance. Tab Fuel Report shows a warning if usable fuel (new field) is not given. Changed aircraft performance editing dialog and split page in three tabs. Added aircraft state, required runway parameters and alternate fuel units to fuel report. Improved aircraft performance display without flight plan. Now showing basic information about aircraft like estimated range. Aircraft performance now uses cruise altitude from flight plan tab to detect if aircraft is in cruise state even if no flight plan is loaded. Fuel calculation now considers fuel to farthest alternate and falls back to cruise fuel flow and speed if values for alternate are not given. Added more error and warning messages if performance settings have errors or missing values. Now showing a warning if aircraft type does not match performance type. Top of climb and top of descent are now calculated considering the manual or real (NOAA or X-Plane) wind situation. Fix for invalid Cannot Comply with Altitude Restriction message. #417 Fixed issue in fuel report where average wind and average ground speed were calculated incorrectly. More improvements and crash fixes. Search All keyboard shortcuts can now be used in search tabs from input fields or buttons. For example: Enter an airport ICAO in the search field and press Ctrl+M to show the airport on top of the list on the map. Show in search in map context menu now selects found items in search result table. More fixes and improvements to menu and shortcuts. Webserver #163 Added internal web server which can be started in menu Tools. This shows a web page which has simple use cases for map display, aircraft progress and airport information with automatic refresh. The page can be accessed from any computer, tablet or smartphone in the local network (you need to adjust you router settings to access it from the internet). Simple stateless protocol added to fetch map images and more. See directory web/test.html or http://localhost:8965/test.html when running the webserver for examples. Allowing HTTPS/SSL connections to internal web server. An example private and public key for encrypted server connections is included. Added configuration for web server in option dialog on page Web Server. Logbook #346 Split logbook completely off from userpoints and added new format for entries. New main menu Logbook. Added own search tab including edit, delete and create facilities similar to userpoints. Bulk edit for logbook entries available similar to userpoints. Selected logbook entries are highlighted on the map showing great circle line connection between departure and destination. Highlights have own tooltip. Added separate logbook entry tab in information window. CSV export and import as well as X-Plane logbook import (Prepar3D logbook format is not open and therefore unusable). Legacy logbook entries from the Little Navmap userpoint database can be converted to new logbook entries. Entries are shown in search after import including detailed error report. Added dialog for logbook statistics with overview, various group queries as well as export as CSV and formatted clipboard. Little Xpconnect / X-Plane Added new X-Plane turboprop definitions to better recognize aircraft and fuel type. Now using tail number from aircraft .acf file only if the tail number from the dataref is not set. This helps to get the right tail number if add-on aircraft inject this manually using a script. Build and Deployment for Developers #387 Updated for Qt 5.12.5 for Linux 18.04 and Windows builds. Changed OpenSSL to 1.1.1. Qt 5.9.8 remains for macOS and Linux 16.04 builds to keep compatibility with older OS versions. Linux compilation now uses system OpenSSL again and is based on Ubuntu 18.04 and Ubuntu 16.04. Added build for Travis CI. Thanks to Jannik for all his work! Complete update of project files to allow configuration with environment variables. Removed all hard coded paths. Added documentation about environment variables to configure build and updated build instructions in BUILD.txt and littlenavmap.pro files. Added template for Linux desktop file. Explained usage of Linux desktop file in README.txt. #378 related from atools version 3.4.4 See CHANGELOG.txt in atools project for more technical details. Relevant comments were added to list above.

  7. Little Navmap 2.2.2 released ► Diese Seite auf Deutsch Direct download: Windows - macOS - Linux (64 bit) ► Screenshots ► Online Manual ► Features Notes List of closed issues for milestone 2.2 is here at GitHub. It is recommended to reload the scenery library. Translations for the graphical user interface are included with the download. Translation packages are not required. Note that some translations are incomplete. The completed packages will be delivered later. Some new features like the MORA grid, display of FAF, MAP and others need either an AIRAC cycle from Navigraph later or equal to 1810 or the included AIRAC cycle. X-Plane: Replace the Little Xpconnect plugin with the new included one to see the improvements for aircraft display mentioned below at X-Plane / Little Xpconnect. Changes from Release 2.0.3 to 2.2.2 For more details on fixed issues look at the included CHANGELOG.txt or here online for a complete list across all versions. Click on images for large view. Quick Overview Aircraft performance, fuel planning and more. Elevation profile now zoomable, displays top of climb and procedure altitude restrictions. Display of Airport traffic pattern. MORA Grid (minimum off-route altitude grid) shown on map. Sun shadow on map. Airport weather symbols on the map. Modifier mouse clicks in map. E.g. Ctrl+Click to start measurement or Shift+Click to place range rings. Sunrise and sunset for airport in information. Bearing and distance to user aircraft in information display for airports and navaids. Better printing for map and flight plan. Insert flight plan at any position into the current one. Change style (also Night) on the fly without restart from the menu Window. Copy map image to clipboard. Performance issues with X-Plane airports fixed. Prepared for Active Sky XP. New online manual chapters and/or changes Major update and enhancements in elevation profile: Profile and Legend. Aircraft performance: General, Editing and New Flight Plan Table Columns. Airport Weather: General, Menu Items and Legend. Sun shading. New settings, crab angle and next wayppoint: Compass Rose and Legend. Airport traffic pattern: General, New Menu Items and Legend. MORA Grid (minimum off-route altitude grid): New Menu Item and Legend. Mouse clicks with modifiers in map. Switch user interface styles on the fly. Options for map display and simulator aircraft: Avoid blurry map and more details for scrolling and zooming while flying. X-Plane scenery_packs.ini is used now. Scenery loading can now exclude files. Improvements to printing. New airport related menu items in procedure search. Insert flight plan into current plan. Sunrise and sunset for airport in information. Bearing and distance of user aircraft to airport or navaid in information. Show more less data in aircraft progress. Better highlighting for airspaces from information window. New Options Tooltips in dialog Options give more help. Note that some options were moved around in the options dialog. These are also marked in the images. Map Map Display Map Display Online Flight Plan Scenery Library User Interface New Features Elevation Profile Added scrolling and zooming ability to elevation profile. Elevation profile now has a context menu also including Show on Map and more functions. Added splitter to elevation profile dock window which has sliders for zooming vertically and horizontally. These can be hidden by dragging the splitter to the right. Zooming can also be done using mouse wheel (Wheel+Shift for vertical zooming). Added keyboard navigation using cursor keys and numpad keys for zooming and scrolling. Panning in elevation profile with mouse click and moving like in map. Double click zooms to position on map. #34 Elevation profile now uses same aircraft icon as map. Changed elevation profile to completely adhere to map painting settings like line width, text size and symbol size. Profile display now hides flight plan if hidden on map. #298 Adjusted elevation profile to display passed, active, straight-in and circle-to-land flight plan legs in the same colors like the flight plan on the map. Navaid symbols are now shown on the descending or ascending line. #298 Added option to display ILS and VASI slopes in elevation profile if an approach is selected. Menu items allow to disable these. #299 Added calculation and display for top of climb to elevation profile display. Calculation based on aircraft performance data. Now showing procedure altitude restrictions in profile display. Top of descent is calculated considering altitude restrictions of approach or STAR. Same for top of climb and SID. All legs after and at the FAF and FACF points are forced to minimum altitude to avoid arriving above ILS glideslope. Display of Above Ground Altitude on top label in profile window follows climb and descent slope instead of using cruise altitude. Giving clear error indication if cruise altitude is too high (i.e. TOC and TOC overlap) or if restrictions are violated due to too low cruise altitude. Removed barely visible highlight on map when hovering cursor above elevation profile. Highlight colors can now be customized in little_navmap_mapstyle.ini. Mouse position in elevation profile is now shown with a cyan/black circle on the map. #34 Jump back to aircraft functionality added in elevation profile. Uses the same settings as the map. #34 Fixed display color of profile labels for night mode. Removed all dark profile colors and pens from little_navmap_mapstyle.ini. Using OS and style colors now. #34 Solved problems where aircraft in elevation profile jumped to wrong leg or moved backwards. Aircraft track is now ignored when determining profile window altitude to avoid confusion when stale tracks result in wrong profile maximum. Aircraft direction now turned if reversal relative to active leg detected. Fixed several issues with aircraft movement and trail in elevation profile. Profile trail now depends on active leg and is now saved separately from aircraft trail on map. Aircraft Performance #255 See main menu -> Aircraft and tab Aircraft in dock window Flight plan. Note that the new tab in the Flight plan dock window is meant for fuel planning and does not change during flight (except when collecting performance data). Added aircraft performance facilities including edit dialog, new, save, save as, load, file history and report. Performance files (lnmperf) can be dragged into the main window of Little Navmap to load. Added main menu Aircraft and tab on flight plan dock window for loading, saving and editing of performance files. Performance and fuel calculation can use an average cruise wind setting where wind is interpolated for climb and descent for calculation. Added automatic aircraft performance calculation option during flight (Aircraft -> Collect Performance for Flight). A default performance profile with 3 NM / 1000 ft descent and climb rules and no fuel consumption is default. Flight plan table shows both fuel weight and volume in separate columns. Window title now shows aircraft performance file name additionally to flight plan file and change state indicated by *. URLs are recognized in aircraft performance description and can be opened there. Local file and directory links (e.g. file:///C:/Projekte/atools or file:///home/alex/) as well as web URLs are recognized and opened. Showing red error messages on top of fuel report indicating invalid or missing values. Added setting in options to change text size in performance report. Added aircraft performance file to userpoint log entry. Removed now useless speed setting from flight plan dock and deleted rule of thumb descent setting in options dialog. Printing See main menu -> File -> Print Map and Print Flight Plan. Added flight plan column selection to print dialog. Added more options for header, fuel, performance and others to print dialog. Improved printing of flight plan table. Now has proper word wrap, proper column sizes and shows a header for each page. Now uses printer resolution for printing the map to get sharper images. This does not apply to the map background. Added colors for procedures to printed flight plan table as shown in flight plan dock window. Online Networks Added settings for online center sizes in options dialog. Previous settings from INI file are now ignored. See dialog Options on tab Map Display Online. #267 Added estimated arrival time to online client information tab and search table. Invalid times are now omitted in display. #303 Changed lower limit of online updates for custom networks to five seconds. Emphasized warning to not to use this for official networks. See dialog Options on tab Online Flying. Fixed wrong heading display for online aircraft in information display in some cases. Improved check for valid whazzup file in options dialog. Now looking for sections !GENERAL and !CLIENTS. Compass Rose Now showing crab angle and added display indicator for next waypoint in compass rose. #284 Added configuration options for compass rose in tree view in dialog Options on tab Map Display. #285 Text size for compass rose, measurement lines and range rings can now be set in dialog Options on tab Map Display. Compass rose range rings are now always drawn. Also if not connected to simulator. Fixed error in compass rose where decimal digits were truncated in some cases. Flight Plan Added drag and drop of flight plans from file manager into main window for loading. Accepts a single flight plan file and all allowed formats for loading (fms, flp, pln) as well as aircraft performance files (lnmperf). #291 Added Insert Flight Plan menu item into flight plan table context menu. Added Append Flight Plan menu item into flight plan table context menu. Now selecting and highlighting imported legs after inserting or appending flight plan. #264 Now displaying FAF, IAF, FACF and MAP in the procedure preview, flight plan table and tooltips. #196 FAF and/or FACF is shown with a Maltese cross on the map and in elevation profile. The Maltese cross is applied to either final approach fix or final approach course fix depending on ILS GS intercept altitude and approach type. #196 Changed last Proceed to Runway leg to correct Circle to Land for approaches without runway ends and Straight In for others. Circle-to-land and straight-in legs following a missed approach point are now drawn correctly with a dashed line on the map and in the flight plan profile. #252 Added indication for DME distance to or from waypoint in procedure search (e.g. TAU+6) and flight plan table for certain leg types. This minimizes the confusing duplicate display of idents in the flight plan table. #265 Added procedure name to flight plan table instead of the generic names like SID or STAR. Added display of ARINC name (e.g. Q21 or I16) to flight plan header label since some FMCs need this value. #306 Added warning dialog for flight plan zero cruise altitude before saving. #263 Made loading of procedures more tolerant for renamed runways and for ARINC names of procedures. Removed annoying change in flight plan when Little Navmap adapted start position on loading. Now leaving flight plan change status unchanged. Disabled export of approach procedures for Flight Factor airbus since required data is unknown. Fixed issue with missing runway in X-Plane FMS files having circle-to-land approaches. X-Plane can now load these type of approaches without error message. Fixed issue for FSX/P3D flight plans missing byte order mark. These were not accepted by ASN or ASX. Added saving of altitudes for X-Plane FMS formats which will show up for each waypoint in the stock FMS now. Fixed issue in route description generator which omitted SID and STAR when no intermediate waypoints were present. Flight plan table now displays localizer frequencies for approaches. Moved FMS 3 format to export sub-menu since it became less important. Procedures Now loading procedures partially from a flight plan if some could not be found. Better error report on procedure loading issues. Now showing the procedure names which cannot be found in the database. Fixed several drawing and other issues with procedures. Added workaround for 3-letter airport idents in procedures which were not recognized and showed an error in the procedure search (red procedure leg). Map Added mouse click and modifier options for quick access. Doing a second click on the hot spot of a shown feature like range rings or measurement lines removes it. #268 Shift+Click: Add or remove range rings or navaid range ring. Ctrl+Click: Start rhumb-line measurement or delete measurement line. Alt+Click: Start great circle line measurement or delete measurement line. Ctrl+Shift+Click: Add or edit userpoint. Ctrl+Alt+Click: Insert point into nearest flight plan leg. Shift+Alt+Click: Append point to flight plan. Added Shift+Wheel and key combinations for zooming in small steps. See legend for a list of keys. Added minimum off route altitude (MORA) data one degree grid display to map. Data coming from Navigraph (also from the included database cycle 1801). See main menu -> View -> Show Minimum Altitude. #84 Added extra airport display layer in map that shows runways and runway numbers before airport diagram shows up. #308 Fixed several problems for aircraft and next waypoint centering mode. Updates are now triggered by a timer depending on speed and distance to waypoint. Minimum zoom distance is now a function of altitude above ground. See dialog Options on tab Simulator Aircraft: Allow scrolling ... and Jump back .... Centering of active flight plan leg and aircraft (if enabled in options) falls back to simple aircraft centering if distance to flight plan is larger than 50 NM. This helps to avoid situations where the program zoomed too far out when flying with stale flight plans. Changed jump-back-to-aircraft logic to avoid weird behavior (zooming far out and other issues). When aircraft is on ground or Center map on aircraft and next flight plan waypoint is not selected: Start looking around on the map by moving first (mouse drag or cursor keys) and not by zooming (mouse wheel or plus and minus keys) to suppress aircraft centering for a while. Zooming without movement (drag or cursor keys only) keeps the zoom distance. Added option to avoid blurred online maps. This is enabled per default. See dialog Options on tab Map: Avoid blurred .... This options works best with the map projection Mercator. #254 Added option for sun shading on map which can use real time, simulator time or user defined time. See main menu View -> Show Sun Shading and Sun Shading sub-menu. Shading darkness can be adjusted in dialog Options on tab Map Display: Sun shading .... Added dialog to set user defined time and date for sun shading. See main menu View -> Sun Shading -> Set user defined time. #60 Drawing of complex X-Plane airports accelerated significantly. #245 Added dashed center line to ILS feathers and made feathers semi-transparent. ILS labels now adhere to the text background color setting for navaids. This allows to select a white background for the labels for better visibility. Now omitting curves, arcs, holds, procedure turns and other fancy geometry of procedures on high zoom factors to avoid a mess up of graphics in the spherical projection. Fixed flight plan leg distance label turning into weird directions when using spherical projection and at high zoom factors. #287 Aircraft icon heading is now more correct at higher zoom levels when using spherical projection. #239 Improved zooming when using a touchpad. Now less sensitive when using two finger touchpad or other gestures. Added workaround for issues when zooming to map objects. Now determining the best zoom distance until all is visible. Fixed issue of map jumping to the wrong place when zooming around the anti-meridian with the mouse wheel. Changed map context menu to correctly show only the mentioned item in Show information menu item and nothing else. Replaced home view symbol on map with actual icon from toolbar button. Moved Remove all Ranges, Measurements and Patterns from all context menus to main menu Map. Several issues with the map context menu and Show Information fixed. Fixed several drawing issues with the aircraft trail, procedures on high zoom levels, flight plan, ILS and others. Replaced OpenMapSurfer hillshading with the one used for OpenStreetMap since server is offline. Airport Weather See main menu -> View -> Show Airport Weather and Airport Weather Source. #6 Added display for weather symbols to map showing lowest cloud coverage (from empty to filled circle), wind direction, wind speed (barbs) and flight rules according to official color coding: LIFR/magenta, IFR/red, MVFR/blue and VFR/green. Added map weather selection for all supported weather sources in menu view. See main menu -> View -> Airport Weather Source. Airport weather icons are loaded from FSX/P3D and remote connections too. Showing flight rules and icons for all sources in information and tooltip. Showing selected source for weather in map in the information display by adding suffix - Map to Flight Rules text. Weather Attempt to fix weather loading issues (disappearing report) for X-Plane METAR.rwx. Weather data is now kept if file was deleted. Fixed issue with ActiveSky showing old weather from stale activeflightplanwx.txt flight plan files. Now always using the latest from either activeflightplanwx.txt or current_wx_snapshot.txt. General improvements to improve reliability when reading weather files and detecting changes on them. More improvements on error tolerance and fixes when reading METARs. Prepared for Active Sky XP. Information and Progress Added sunrise and sunset display (civil twilight) in UTC for airport information display. Time is based on simulator date or real date depending on connection status. See in dock window Information on tab Airport. #281 Added distance and bearing (rhumb line) to navaids and airports from the user aircraft in information window and tooltip. Disabled when distance is larger than 500 NM. #274 Added More / Less link to aircraft progress display to show detailed or brief performance information during flight. Added crab angle to aircraft progress display to indicate the needed heading to the next flight plan waypoint in cross wind. #284 Information tabs for airspaces and online centers now highlight geometry on map when clicking the blue Map link in the information window. Above mentioned tabs also have a Remove Highlights from Map link on top that clears all highlighted airspaces from the map. Now showing restricted airspace designation (like D-30) in information and tooltip. Showing active time criteria (NOTAM, holidays or others) for airspaces in information window. Added multiple code as indicator for duplicate overlapping airspaces. Navigraph data only. #279 Now displaying related airport information for navaids if available. #289 Com frequencies are now forced into 25 kHz raster on display to avoid invalid frequencies like 0.69 MHz. Showing more important flight parameters (IAS, indicated altitude, etc.) bold in aircraft progress. More fixes and improvements to information display and tooltips. Airport Traffic Pattern #197 Added option to draw airport traffic pattern on the map to all map, flight plan table and airport search context menus. Display Airport Traffic pattern at ... is enabled when right clicking on an airport. Right click on traffic patter hotspot near runway threshold to remove it. A configuration dialog is shown when adding a traffic pattern that allows to customize distances, colors and other options. Options Moved options Use a short name ICAO_ICAO.pln when saving FSX or P3D flight plans instead of the long name, Avoid overwriting Flight Plan with not matching departure and destination and Center flight plan on map after loading to flight plan tab in options. Various other changes for online networks, map display, scenery library and more. See related items in this change log. Search Added Show Information for Airport, Show Airport on Map and Show Airport in Search items to the context menu in the procedure search tab. Various other improvements and fixes to procedure search. Userpoints URLs are now recognized in userpoint information display and can be opened there. Local file and directory links (e.g. file:///C:/Projekte/atools or file:///home/alex/) links as well as web URLs are recognized and opened. Fixed issue where takeoff or landing airports and runways were not recognized correctly for logbook entries. User Interface and General GUI style including Night can now be changed on the fly from the menu Window -> Style. Removed style from options dialog and moved map darkness for night style to dialog Options to tab Map Display. Fixed all remaining artifacts which appeared after style change. #142 Added option to disable map window undocking in options dialog on tab Map. Allowing to undock the map window (option checked - default) can cause issues when resizing dock windows or the main window. Uncheck this option if you see strange or annoying resizing behavior when changing dock window or main window sizes. In some cases the dock window might also freeze, i.e. docks cannot be resized. Uncheck this option if you see one of these issues. Reset window layout now also changes window size and centers window to avoid messed up layouts. Changed default layout to avoid locked elevation profile size. Disabled restoring of full screen mode on macOS since Qt freezes dock windows. If that happens double click the title bar of any dock window to float it. Double click again to dock it back and you can resize all docks again. Now always showing version in main window title. Development versions also show Git revision. #304 Added Copy Map Image to Clipboard function in file menu. Now appending date and time suffix to map screenshot name to avoid overwriting for Save Map as Image. Added warning dialog when using the buggy and limited online elevation data. Added information dialog for Navigraph only scenery mode. #262 Changed Show map window menu item to Show all floating Windows which raises all floating dock windows. Can also be used to get a lost map window back. Now raising all floating windows on startup to avoid hidden and/or inaccessible windows. Changed search path for custom map themes to be based on executable path since macOS gives a wrong current directory. #261 Log file is now rotated if the file size of 10 MB is exceeded. This avoids overwriting on startup and eases error reporting. #275 Added new Remove all Highlights and Selections menu item to menu Map and toolbar. #308 Added Copy to Clipboard to update notification dialog to copy contents as plain and formatted text. Added FAQ link help menu. Various other improvements regarding error messages and changes in menu structure. Scenery Library Files can now be excluded from loading for all simulators in options dialog. #29 List in exclusion paths now allow multi selection. See dialog Options on tab Scenery Library Database: Add Files .... Check box for reading inactive scenery is now enabled for X-Plane to choose between reading scenery_packs.ini or full directory structure in scenery loading dialog. This helps if using tools to disable scenery. #151 Now fetching the first X-Plane installation path from x-plane_install_11.txt as base path. X-Plane parking positions are now at correct coordinates. #256 Fixed issues with symbolic links in scenery loader. Now using path as-is instead of converting to canonical path (i.e. resolving the symbolic links). #29 Database minor version updated to 13. X-Plane / Little Xpconnect Now reading X-Plane acf files once to get aircraft name and engine type for a better classification. Allows to show helicopter and jet AI symbols in Little Navmap. #271 Added airplane model and registration. Now using description for title. See the included CHANGELOG.txt or here online for a complete list across all versions. All files are checked by VirusTotal.
  8. Direct download: Windows - macOS - Linux (64 bit) Online Manual Notes This release fixes several errors and adds two new export functions for the Reality XP GNS 530W/430W V2 and GTN 750/650 Touch. The changelog below contains links to the relevant parts of the manual if applicable. The program will automatically show a question dialog and then copy and prepare the included Navigraph database on first start if the included cycle 1707 is still used. The included database received minor updates. For Linux users: The startup shell scripts have been deleted since they are not needed anymore. The program can be started directly from any folder. ►► Please reload the scenery databases to avoid problems with saved flight plans. ◄◄ Included Progams Little Xpconnect was updated to 1.0.6. See included CHANGELOG.txt for a list of changes. Little Navconnect was updated to 1.8.3. See included CHANGELOG.txt. Changes from Release 1.8.3 to 1.8.4 Added flight plan export for Reality XP GTN and GNS units in the Export Flight Plan to other Formats menu. See here in the manual: FPL (Reality XP Garmin GNS), GFP (Reality XP Garmin GTN) and Export Sub-Menu. Added option to save Garmin flight plans with user defined waypoints to avoid locked waypoints on AIRAC cycle mismatch. See dialog "Options" on tab "Flight Plan" and here in the online manual: Notes about the Garmin Formats GFP and FPL. Added X-Plane 3D airport attribute in the airport search window in the dropdown list All Ratings. Also shown in airport facilities list in tooltips and information window. Now displaying runway names for SIDs and STARs with reference to multiple parallel or all runways in procedure search. Partial solution for issue #179. Needs scenery database reload. macOS compatibility changed since program crashes on 10.9 and below. Now at least version 10.10 is needed. Program now refuses to run on Mavericks or older and shows an error dialog. This had to be done due to requirements in used programming libraries. Added setting in dialog Options on tab Map to disable tooltips for selected map features: airports, navaids or airspaces. Changed route description text field to mono-spaced font and changed wrapping for better readability. Added warning dialog when AIRAC cycle is not available when saving flight plans in X-Plane FMS 11 format. Helipads can now be selected as a start position from the map context menu. Small adjustment to taxiway labels to show more often. Added display for airport regions where available. Updated French translation, French manual and legend. Updated database to allow future fixes of issue #179. Database minor version changed to 8 to indicate updated schema. Reloading the scenery databases is recommended. Fixed Errors Fixed Majestic Dash FPR flight plan export on Windows. Departure runway is now correctly assigned according to SID runway when loading from formats which do not support departure parking (e.g. FMS or FPL). Made flight plan format detection more tolerant for X-Plane FMS 11 files with missing cycle information. Fixed issues where X-Plane cannot load STAR in FMS 11 flight plans because runway reference is missing. Now using correct AIRAC cycle from nav database when writing X-Plane FMS 11 files. Used simulator database version previously which could result in X-Plane warnings and unusable flight plans. Fixed issue where helipad was not loaded correctly from FSX PLN files in certain cases. Fixed Linux build to avoid problems with shared libraries on some platforms for all programs. Removed unneeded startup scripts for Linux. Program executable can now be started directly from any folder without setting library path. Fixed problem where French translation was loaded if OS has French as second or third language. Solved problem where translation files were loaded mixed in some cases. Fixed problem with initial wrong folder selection if default does not exist when saving or exporting flight plans. Fixed No Simulator found ... warning dialog for Linux and macOS which should show up only on Windows first startup. Made program more tolerant for older database files and improved compatibility. Number of approach lighting systems is now correctly assigned to airports in loaded X-Plane scenery data. This issue resulted in many airports having an ALS indication where none is. See the included CHANGELOG.txt or here online for a complete list across all versions.

  11. Direct download: Windows - macOS - Linux (64 bit) Online Manual Notes This release adds support for Navigraph updates and includes a full AIRAC cycle 1707 including procedures, airspaces, navaids and more. Note that Navigraph updates will only be available as of December 7th with the next cycle 1713. Furthermore, new flight plan export formats like the Majestic Dash and the new X-Plane 11 FMS format were added. Changes from Release 1.6.7 to 1.8.3 Little Xpconnect was updated to 1.0.5. Minor changes only. Little Navconnect was updated to 1.8.2. Minor changes and bug fixes only. The program will automatically prepare the included Navigraph database on first start. Reloading the scenery databases is recommended. Improvements Navigraph Added Navigraph database cycle 1707 to program download archive. Database is prepared and used automatically on startup. See the Navigation Databases chapter in the manual for more information. Added sub-menu for Navigraph database in menu Scenery Library with three display options. Program can now display mixed data (e.g. FSX/N in titlebar) on map and in information window: Complete airports and ILS from simulator data. Navaids, airways, airspaces and procedures from third party navdata like Navigraph. Changed main window title bar to indicate usage of navdata (e.g. Navigraph): FSX/N: simulator and navdata, (FSX)/N: navdata only and FSX: simulator only. See Window Title in the online manual. Additonal third party database is now opened from application directory first and can be overloaded in settings database directory by a newer one. Programm checks database internal compilation time before copying and creates database indexes on demand. Database is copied and prepared on first startup. Flight Plan Export Enabled saving of the new X-Plane 11 FMS file format and added warning before saving since the format is not usable by X-Plane 11.05. FMS 11 is now the default format when saving FMS although it needs at least a 11.10 beta version. FMS 3 can still be saved using the export option. See in the manual: FMS 11 and FMS 3. Added flight plan export for Majestic Dash. Currently limited to waypoints. See in the manual: FPR. Added export for IXEG 737 flight plan format. See in the manual: FPL. Flight plan export to Flight Factor Airbus added. See in the manual: corte.in Format. Translation Updated English manual and French program translation. Added translated offline manual PDF by Patrick. Not yet available online. Added French legend and updates to translation. Options Added settings in option dialog on tab User Interface to force user interface language and locale (number format, date format and more) in program to English. Added options to disable restoring the last search parameters, information window content and aircraft trail on startup in options dialog on tab Startup. Other Updated Linux startup script so that it can be used also by the desktop launcher (thanks to Valerio for the tip). Now adding all readme and changelog files to macOS deployment. Added command line option -s or --settings-directory that allows to change the ABarthel part of the settings directory for testing purposes like running more than one version of Little Navmap. Fixed display of navaids in information dock window on procedure tab and removed SIDs and STARs since this information was not useful. Added cycle information to X-Plane menu item in scenery library menu showing AIRAC cycle of loaded X-Plane database. Scenery library menu item is now disabled instead of being hidden if only one simulator is installed. Adapted airspace and COM display to new types. Added caution airspace. Information dock window on tab Runways/Helipads can now display more than one ILS for a runway end (EDDF 25R/07L in X-Plane). Fixed Errors Fixed error where ARINC name of procedures was not loaded causing problems when exporting and loading flight plans. Fixed problem in ATS route string parser where an airway as an invalid first entry did not generate a warning message. Fixed error in route string parser which did not recognize STARs correctly. Fixed error where first enroute waypoint contained an airway reference after calculating with SID in some cases. This caused problems when exporting some flight plan formats and in the route string parser. Fixed several display issues with large airspaces and airways crossing the anti meridian. These showed up mirrored with their tooltips in other parts of the world. Small problems remain (e.g. Melbourne FIR). FSX/P3D: Added workaround for scenery sort order with add-on.xml files missing layer id. Now forcing navaid updates of fsAerodata to highest priority. Fixed error where an automatic connect was attempted even when hostname is empty. Fixed problem with almost invisible checkbox, radiobutton and toolbar-button state in night mode. Fixed error with wrong ILS pitch in X-Plane compiler. Value was rounded to integer value. Better handling of X-Plane OpenAirspace comments. Fixed crashes and freezes with invalid or incomplete procedures. Drawing code is now more robust for invalid procedure legs as they appear in some add-on scenery. Fixed problem where invalid procedure legs were not recognized (course/heading to DME distance or VOR radial). Fixed problem where no scenery database was selected on first startup causing crashes when loading a flight plan. Fixed handling of missing or inaccessible legend file. Now silently ignores error and redirects to web page if unavailable. Fixed error in scenery library menu where a menu item could be deselected resulting in no selection at all. See the included CHANGELOG.txt or here online for a complete list across all versions.
