Information Information Dock Window


This dock window contains text information about airports in several tabs as well as information for one or more navaids, airways in another tab plus an additional tab showing airspace information.

All information can be copied to the clipboard as formatted text. Use the context menu of the text fields or use Ctrl+A to select all and Ctrl+C to copy the content to the clipboard.

Information for one airport, navaid or userpoint is shown when selecting one of the Show Information for ... context menu items in the map, flight plan dock window or the search result table.

All tabs are filled for airport, all navaids, all userpoints or all airspaces which are close to the cursor for a left click in the map.

Little Navmap shows tabs based on priorities and selected objects and tries minimize tab changes.

A blue link Map in the information allows jumping to and/or highlighting the shown object on the map.

Bearing and distance (rhumb line constant course) to the user aircraft is shown for airports and navaids if connected to a simulator and distance is below 500 NM.

Scenery Information

All information about airports and navaids includes one or more links at the bottom of the object information in section Scenery. These links point to the matching BGL (FSX, P3D) or DAT (X-Plane) files that contain information about the airport or navaid. Click the links to open the containing folder in your file manager (e.g. Windows Explorer). If possible, the matching file will be selected automatically.

Multiple links can appear for airports since these can be updated by several files from different add-on sceneries or navdata updates.

Tab Airport, Runways, Com, Procedures and Weather

These five tabs show information for one selected airport.

Sunrise and sunset are calculated based on current real date if no simulator is connected. Otherwise the simulator date is used. This is indicated by the text (civil twilight, real date) or (civil twilight, simulator date).

A tab Weather also includes decoded weather information for the selected airport. The flight rules icon (Legend - Airport Weather) has a suffix - Map if the shown weather source is the source for airport weather icons on the map.

Additional links for helipads are available in the tab Runways.

Airport Information

Simulator Aircraft Simulator Aircraft Dock Window

This dock window shows information about the user aircraft and about AI or multiplayer aircraft in several tabs. Little Navmap has to be connected to the simulator to enable this feature. See Connecting to a Flight Simulator for more information on this topic.

Tab Aircraft

Gives an overview about the user aircraft and shows type, weight and fuel information.

Aircraft Information

Picture above: Aircraft information when connected to a flight simulator.

Tab Progress

Shows information similar to a flight management computer about the user aircraft. This covers flight plan progress, altitude, speed, ambient and environment parameters.

The text information in the tab has a link More Less on the top left. You can use this to toggle between more detailed and less information.

Note that the fuel and time estimates in this tab are based on actual fuel consumption and speed. These are not affected by the aircraft performance profile (Aircraft Performance).

Aircraft Progress Information Aircraft Progress Information Less
Picture above: Progress and ambient information of the current flight situation. Some fields or tables like Next Waypoint are only available when a flight plan is loaded. Picture above: Progress information folded to the most important values using the More Less link.

Tab AI / Multiplayer

Information about an AI or multiplayer aircraft from the simulator (not online networks) or ship is displayed in this tab if a vehicle is clicked on the map.

This also includes the aircraft's departure and destination airports that can be shown on the map by clicking on the blue links (only for FSX or P3D and if a flight plan is filed).

Note that information on AI aircraft is limited on X-Plane. Only position, altitude and heading can be displayed.
