Thanks for help, also I wonder if there are any planes with integrated moving map alike G1000 on FSX? If not maybe some suggestions on
how to integrate Atlas in FG. Never used Atlas before.

I am Not quite sure, but Atlas only builds with a certain version of simgear, not the latest one. Maybe that's the problem here.

I build Atlas around once a week with current Simgear (both CVS)...

FG CVS on: E7400 @ ~3.2ghz, Asus P5e, 4gb RAM, 512mb 8400GS, MS FF Pro, Logitech Illum KB, 2 x 19" LCDs
Favourite aircraft: 737-900ER, 777-200ER, 787, A380, F-14b, F-18, C172p
FGCom usually at 122.75mhz

probably that's the solution:

Unfortunately I cannot install FalconView:
neither on Vista64 nor Linux. This would make the perfect moving map. ( to integrate in your panel )

The nav-map dialog (available in CVS, not in 2.0) is a prototype of future work I'm planning to support G1000 type devices, although the G1000 is pretty much the most complex target. The initial effort will focus on Boeing/Airbus-style navigation displays, and general-aviation units such as the KLN-89 and -94.

Atlas is more a 'digital chart' which is obviously the direction in-panel displays are going in real-life, fortunately aircraft cockpit technology advances about as slowly as FlightGear panel technology.

instead of atas you could also use Jmapview
it doesnt need to create maps and has an integrated search for airports

I had some problems compiling Atlas 0.3.0 so maybe reading this thread will help...

As well, there's a bunch of info on the Atlas project page here that might be helpful...

And, finally, there's an Atlas mailing list where you can get lots of help, located here:

Hope that's helpful...



P.S. If you haven't tried it yet, the CVS version of Atlas is really cool! They've added a bunch of new features that are well worth the trouble of compiling and installing it. Info on how to get it are on the main Atlas project page (see URL above).

Yes, I had horrible issues with Atlas 0.3.0 as well - and after some searching I found that they supply Atlas 0.4.0 via cvs.

I have built Atlas 0.4.0 as RPM for PCLinuxOS - it work great and can be installed from the repository in PCLinux' Synaptic package manager (and I have today added Kelpie flightplanner as RPM to PCLinuxOS contribs today, with fix for flightgear import to route manager),
