Can anyone reccomend a good navigation program (moving map, all the bells and whistles) that I can run on my networked laptop - I would like to use WideFS. The vision is to run FS on my main computer, and navigation addons (please reccomend) on the networked laptop.

I would like something similar to FSnavigator (feature wise).

I use FliteMap by Jeppesen, linked to FS by my GPSout on a serial cable. This is a realy professional solution, but it is expensive.

There's a program called Nav3 by Ted Wright which I used to use. Maybe it is Nav4 or something later by now. Nav3 dates back to FS98 at least. There are programs like FlightMax, which had a "FlightMax Remote" part which would work on WideFS, but I understand that the website is now closed. Maybe a search for FSutilities would get results?

If you are dead set on FS Navigator, the best solution is to add a second monitor to your main FS PC and move its screen there. Most modern video cards support two monitors (two VGA or a DVI and a VGA), or you could get a cheap PCI card for the second monitor. There are quite a few folks who've adoped this solution.
