WHAT IS NEW?
DISTANCE AND TIME
Distance-to-go (DTG) as well as the remaining flight time (EET) and arrival time (ETA) are displayed both in the GPS Window (Arrival) and in the flight plan panel. The values are continuously updated.
Apart from parking positions taxiways can also be selected for highlighting. This feature may be useful, if e.g. ATC assigns you specific taxiways to reach your gate or runway.
TAXIWAY AND RUNWAY DESIGNATORS
The color of taxiway and runway designators can be separately selected in the Option window.
AFIL AND ZZZZ FLIGHT PLANS
Apart from standard flight plans, you can also file AFIL and ZZZZ flight plans. For details see the manual or the help file.
If you save a flight plan in Squawkbox format, two files will be generated: one in the old format and one in the current format.
The map can be printed both in black-and-white and in color.
The position of the GPS window will be saved in the ini-file when exiting the
program and will be restored when the program is called again.
The Option Window allows the selection of three different font sizes: small, medium, and large.
The currently used version of fsuipc is displayed in ABOUT–>FSC Team, if the program is connected to Flight Simulator.
The Merge-feature in the Database Manager has been eliminated, because the user object file (userwp.udb) is automatically converted into ASCII format (userwp.txt) and can thus be edited by the user.
