FSXmap shows airports, navaids and waypoints in Microsoft Fligth Simulator including data about runways. Click on an airport to bring up its
runway map and additional data. Hovering the mouse over an airport/navaid displays the most important information. The symbols used are:
These means: Large (international) airport, regional airport, small airport/airfield, VOR/DME, NDB, TACAN, DME, VOR and waypoint. Depending on
the level of zoom, you may not see all, they are displayed in order of size. The filter window tells how many are shown, and total number within map.
To measure distances, click on the measuring tool at the bottom right corner. Then click on the map to define the initial point, and add legs by
clicking again. You can click the List button in the Measure window to bring up a list with bearings and distances.
To search for airports, click the Find Airports button in the top right corner. Here you can search for airports in a certain country, state or city and
sort them for the one closest to current map center. You can set various conditions in the search, such as runway length, ILS and runway surface.
If you select "Filter Map", only airports matching the current search are shown on the map.
If you click on an airport on the map, or in the search results, you bring up the runway map where each valid approach is indicated with its number
and color coding that tells ILS status and if the approach has VASI lights or not. The various symbols may look like this:
Blue frame indicates VASI, red frame no VASI. Green color is ILS with glideslope, yellow color is ILS without glideslope, gray color means no ILS.
If you hover the mouse over the symbol, you will bring up information about all details of the approach and runway. If you click the symbol, the
glide slope for that approach will be presented on the map, with details depending on level of zoom.
