Never too sure where I am in the FS world (or the real world) I was happy to install the FSWidgets GMap - a moving map that works a treat

Ray,

I'm using Fugawi maps on a second monitor for similar reasons, but would be very interested to know what maps they are in EFB. I own EFB, but couldn't see an easy way to get the map package into the gauge. Thanks for any insight.

Regards,

Maurice.

EDIT: Just read up on it elsewhere. Interesting !!

Hi Shep,

I also have Fugawi maps on the Xeon but cannot find a free multiport serial adapter for Vista 64. I've downloaded the FSWidgets program and will see how it fares on Vista64.

It sure is. He saw that I was doing Leeming so kindly supplied me with a beta version.



Fortunately it has anti-skid brakes so I was ok on the landing

great! Finally a sensible alternative to the annoying GPS bug using Gen X.. that Hawk looks dishy too

Can the magic of flight ever be carried by words? I think not.
