    Is anyone using the FS Control moving map shown in the current sale at £15?
    It seems to be the same one as in their £50 full monty version. I have tried that one, but found I was forever looking at all the info available, rather than flying the plane. However, the map alone seems to appeal.

    It's the same map - with less functionality.

    Thanks Theo, that was my impression. Just wandering if this is the map to go for or whether another type may be in the offing at a later date.

    Will FSW someday have a map? Probably, since all other sims have them. For example, xplane has a very nice moving map. P3d is so and so. However, some thirdparty maps provide what you may be looking for, and if the price is right, then go for it.

    I like the idea of it, but my other moving maps (FSX/X PLANE) are freebee's which suit my needs. The xplane built-in is ok but I found another from a donator which I prefer. I wander if FS WIDGETS or the like,might come up with something.

    I believe Dovetail is suppose to incorporate a default moving map into the sim in the future, but that may be a long time away.

    This one does, a bit pricey, but I went for it, so far no regrets. Thanks to all for your interest and input.

    I hope so, as it's one useful feature presently missing from the sim. Let's hope it's not quite so far out.


    Cheers,
