A pity. Pocket FMS is superb - not just in FS but in real life too.

The FMS bit in Pocket FMS is a misnomer - it really is just a GPS display.
Although there was a planning section it's not really any different to the
planner built into most GPS systems (like my Garmin GPSIII Pilot).

A true FMS is a different beast altogether as it is a flight planner but
linked to the aircraft autopilots systems to fly the input route. FSNav is
nearer to being an FMS than Pocket FMS.

Could be my machine/MB.
Given up and removed all traces, just that it was prettier than FSNav. Tho
would still like an FMS, simmarket has got some Bendix/King units worth
looking at for less than a tenner.
