Update! MSFS2020 - FSPM VFR Map Addon - V.1.1.0

Version 1.1.0

- The panel with non-map info is now collapsable

- Additional weather data (QNH, Temperature...) is shown

- Plane icon is a bit smaller

- "reload" icon goes up now, when the window is minimised. It's still visible, and I hate that this is ridiculously difficult to do nicely, but it's better like this.

It’s a map. With your plane moving in it. In the Sim. Without any external apps needing to run.

There’s a basic “world” layer, generously hosted by Carto, using the OSM data.

There is also a layer you can select with some info about airspaces and nav data from the OpenAIP database (unfortunately not interactive, yet).

There’s also some more info about your flight and the missing indication (besides Garmin) about the wind direction.

You can teleport anywhere by clicking on the map and then choosing altitude, speed etc. Please be patient or pause after the teleport, until the space around you warps back into existence.

To install, unzip the file and copy the folder ‘fspm-panel-vfrmap’ to the MSFS Community folder. You'll need to restart the MSFS.

Beware: I noticed once, on the first install, when I started it first - the game crashed (VFR maps…). After the restart all is good, never crashed the game again. But just in case, when you start it the first time, do it right after the game loads, not at the end of a long flight.

  1. Great addition to the sim. Thank you!
