FMS Data and Charts and Maps
« on: March 13, 2017, 08:05:51 PM »
I am looking for services like jeppesen but for flight simulators.  I would like to have the most current data in Prepare3D for the CDU and approach charts and IFR maps.  So far I only came across www.navigraph.com which seems alright but would like to see what you guys use out there?  Is there a better product than Navigraph that provides the complete solution?

Thank you

I use Navigraph for Prosim and other programs along with Navigraph on my cell phone for charts.
Highly recommend it. Use it professionally on all my customer sims.
Building a full scale 737-800 AATD for home use. Majority of hardware is from Sismo Solutions, software is Prosim under P3D.

Jack,

Go with Navigraph because not only will your CDU be using it, you can also use it with PFPX, Avilasoft Flight Bag (usually this is networked to an iPad like real pilots use), and other related flight bag type programs. Which avionics suite are using...ProSim737, Project Magenta or SimA...Navigraph works with all of them, plus other programs like weather add-ons.

I am another vote for Navigraph. It is great and supports almost all of the addon software out there for flightsim.

Pretty much seems like Navigraph is the way to go based on the replies. There is another way to get the charts and flight plates, you can use www.airnav.com ; however, this will not give you the FMS/CDU data.

That again, is the reason why Navigraph started, but if you have the skills there is a way too do it. You have to pull files from the government site that Navigraph does, but there is the catch, the amount work involved where the folks at Navigraph have already perfected. Cheaper to just go with them in end, plus a lot of the programs mentioned by myself and others are setup to look up the file extensions of Navigraph, you just have to point the directions of the file locations (which is really easy).
