View Full Version : How to find a VOR radial in FSNavigator?
01-01-2002, 05:43 AM
Assuming I don't want to fly IFR, only to print an area chart with VOR and runways and then plan VFR for myself, like I used to do with the FS4 printed charts. How do I get FSNavigator to indicate which radial goes from point A to point B? Zooming in doesn't help at all since the VOR indicators stay the same size and don't have numbers around them.
Also, is it possible to run FSNavigator without launching FS2002 first?

Try this: With FSNAV at full screen, position the cursor at a point you want a bearing from (usually your aircraft) and right click the mouse and drag it to the point you want to go to. It will draw a temporary line and give you bearing and distance information. This is really handy when you need a bearing to a fix not defined by a VOR.
As to your second question, I don't know of any way to run FSNAV outside of FS2002.:-hmmm

Freeware Nav3 (NOT FSNav) available at http://nav.consequential.org/ runs as a separate program and does what you are asking for.

Thanks a whole lot, this is exactly what I was looking for. :)

Can you guys get airports to show up? If so, how? I've read the docs and this program looks great, but allI get are VORs, NDBs, and intersections. No airports, runways, or ILS info.

1. Read the tutorial and get your scenerey files compiled.
2. Make sure that the Show Airports button is pressed (it's on the toolbar and looks, surprisingly, like an airport).
3. Zoom in close enough.
That should do it.
