3.1. General

Little Navconnect is bundled with the Little Navmap download.

Little Navconnect acts as an agent that connects Little Navmap running on a remote computer with a flight simulator. This saves the complexity of setting up a remote SimConnect link and also allows using Little Navmap to connect remotely to the Little Xpconnect X-Plane plugin.

Little Navmap can connect to the flight simulator directly when running on the same computer as the flight simulator therefore the Little Navconnect agent is only needed for connecting to a remote computer.

For X-Plane you need the Little Xpconnect plugin.

3.2. Windows Builds

There are two builds of Little Navmap and Little Navconnect for Windows available:

  • Windows 64-bit: For MSFS and all X-Plane versions.

  • Windows 32-bit: For FSX and Prepar3D.

Note that Little Navmap and all related programs are inter-operable across the network (Little Navmap and Little Navconnect) as well as the X-Plane plugin (Little Navmap, Little Navconnect and Little Xpconnect).

You can see the Windows build type in the about dialog and in the window title bar (64-bit or 32-bit).
