GPSout + Flitestar

Recommended Posts

As Checknewbie I ´am planning to buy and install some "must have-addons". I want to install Flitestar and FS2004 on one PC. Will this be possible with GPSout.dll?

I can´t buy a second PC for this.

Yes. You'll either need two serial ports and a null modem cable, so that you can feed out of one and back in on the other, or a virtual serial port program such as the free ones from MixW or Eterlogic. Those program can create a pair of serial ports linked together, all in software, fooling Windows into thinking they are real ports.

Please first check that FliteStar can be used as a moving map, that it will accept NMEA input from a GPS. When I bought my copy it was called "FliteMap" -- more expensive than the package called FliteStar which certainly did not have any moving map facilities in those days. This was over 10 years ago so things might have changed -- but do check first!
