Connecting to LittleNavMap

All general support: help on flying, installation, hardware, getting online etc. There are lots of users and developers to help you out.
Forum rules
In order to help you, we need to know a lot of information. Make sure to include answers to at least the following questions in your initial post.

- what OS (Windows Xp/Vista, Mac etc.) are you running?
- what FlightGear version do you use?
- what graphics card do you have?
- does the problem occur with any aircraft, at any airport?
- where did you download your aircraft/scenery from?
- is there any output printed to the console (black window)?
- copy&paste your commandline (tick the "Show commandline box on the last page of FGRun or the "Others" section on the Mac launcher).

If you experience FlightGear crashes, please report a bug using the issue tracker (can be also used for feature requests).
To run FlightGear on old computers with bad OpenGL support, please take a look at this wiki article.

Note: If you did not get a reponse, even after 7 days, you may want to check out the FlightGear mailing lists to ask your question there.

Took the liberty to merge the two topics. Also moved the topic.

LNM is open source so can't one of you wizards write a code to make it work.


Lots of people in the team would be able to do that if they wanted I guess. But given that we already have Phi as navigation map / instructor panel / external interface to FG - why would someone spent his time duplicating what it does?

Or is the tool so much better than Phi? If there's functionality missing in Phi, I'm guessing TorstenD would prefer to add it rather than provide a second tool.

Phi is a great tool. There is one thing missing in my humble opinion and that is a countdown clock similar to the one in the HUD. I use the HUD primarily for that reason. If that was added to Phi that would be a real enhancement.

as far as LNM interfacing goes, unless a developer with FG is also using LNM and decides to get involved, it is up to LNM (or someone else with the knowledge) to handle the interfacing... i know a lot of coders that use "really complicated" as an (initial?) excuse... but i also know that one has to know the different systems to do things like this and that's not always easy... LNM may interface with (eg) 10 different simulators... that means they have to know at least some part of those 10 different simulators... ISTR something about a 3rd party middleware tool used between LNM and (some?) simulators... perhaps it is this 3rd party middleware that needs/could be updated? i dunno... i just use Phi's map and don't know why i would need or want LNM at all...


Point taken, not sure about $$$ more like $.

No. I only meant that I merged the two forum topics discussing LittleNavMap into one forum topic and then moved the new forum topic to another subforum.
