Changes from 3.0.5 to 3.0.6

Flight Plan and Procedures

  • Fixed wrong warning for runway mismatches in procedure search. Showed unneeded mismatch warning
    for runways without procedure. Example: KSTK.
  • Fixed issue where SID/STAR could not be reloaded due to wrongly detected runway mismatch when
    using the MSFS scenery library. Example: EDDE ERNE1V EDDK/I14L
    could not load ERNE1V when loading the flight plan for MSFS.
  • Flight plan name now updated in window title bar when using Save or Save as.
  • Now correctly assigning ALL as runway designator to SID/STAR having no runway assignments in MSFS.
    Reload the scenery library if you use MSFS.
  • Fixed issue where STAR could not be loaded from MSFS PLN file. Example: KIAD/30 ANJLL4.DNERO KLAX/06L.
  • Fixed crash when modifying flight plan.

Flight Plan Route Description

  • Fixed issue where STAR keyword was not generated from flight plan in route description.
    Now always adding generic SID/STAR keywords in export formats like the Rotate MD-80 .txt format
    to avoid issues when loading plan in FMC.
  • Fixed issue with alternate airports having the same STAR as destination.
    Example: KVHN SSO SUNSS8 KDVT KPHX showed a wrong error message and used KPHX as destination.
  • Fixes in route description where description MUHA EPMAR3 MAXIM SNDBR3 KMIA was not recognized
  • Added Ctrl+Return shortcut to create flight plan from route description.
  • Fixed issues where airways were not recognized. Example: KCNM WHOLE EWM J4 SUNSS8.SSO KDVT where
    J4 was added as a far off NDB.
  • Fixed plan reset to VFR in route description. Flight plan type is now set from current flight plan
    type in window Flight Planning when clicking Load from Flight Plan.

Flight Plan Export

  • Reverted change for degree sign ° vs. * in MSFS PLN flight plan files to avoid issues with
    third-party software not capable to read this MSFS compatible format.
  • Added new multiexport format Microsoft Flight Simulator 2020 format using "*" as degree sign
    for cases where the simulator or add-ons cannot deal with the ° sign.
  • Removed obsolete annotated PLN export. Little Navmap can still read this format from old flight
    plans.

Map Display

  • Added three add-on airport map display options to menu View and toolbar.
    See User Manual - View Menu - Airports.
    1. Add-on no override (Ctrl+Alt+O): Add-on airports are shown like normal airports.
    2. Add-on override zoom (Ctrl+Alt+Z): Add-on airports override zoom distance only but filters
      like Soft Surface can still be used to hide them.
    3. Add-on override zoom and filter (Ctrl+Alt+Y): Add-on airports override zoom distance and
      filters, i.e. are always shown. Filters like Soft Surface have no effect on add-on airports.
  • Added airport filter preset Show only add-on airports in menu View and toolbar.
  • Map theme shortcuts for included themes can now be defined in DGML file.
  • Assigned shortcuts Ctrl+Alt+0 to Ctrl+Alt+7 for all default free included map themes.
    These do not change when adding additional themes.
  • Fixed disappearing related navaids when drawing procedures. This happened when navaid was outside
    the bounding box of the flight plan.
  • Added options for airport runway labels and taxiway label size on page Map Display in section
    Airports.

User Interface

  • Replaced outdated airway types Victor and Jet with Low and High everywhere in the program.
  • Fixed too small table cell height on Windows with the high DPI option switched off.
  • Now also closing the startup image splash window in all dialog windows to avoid being hidden.
    As a result, the program looked like frozen since the hidden dialog window blocked input.
  • Fix in Dutch shortcut translation (‘Ctrl+D’ vs. ‘Ctrl+Down’) which overlapped with other keys.
  • More user interface improvements.
  • Minimum number of trail points lowered to 1000.

Aircraft Progress

  • Added map, information and procedure links in progress tab for destination airport, top of climb,
    top of descent, next waypoint and related navaids.
  • Fixed wrong next waypoint indication when flying missed approach.

Logbook

  • Logbook takeoff and landing detection is now kept for program restart.
  • Improved logbook entry creation to avoid creating of unneeded entries. A flight can now be continued
    after program restart and logbook entry is updated accordingly.
  • Now detecting off-airport takeoff and landing. Logbook entries get coordinates in degree/minute
    format as departure and landing position in this case.

Other

  • Translations updated. Thanks to Flavio, Patrick and Ricardo!
  • Updated user manual for new features and changes.
  • The aircraft performance collection now keeps results on restart. Note that you have to restart
    the collection manually by clicking in menu AircraftRestart Aircraft Performance Collection,
    the button in the window or FileReset all for a new Flight.
  • Now adding backup log file abarthel-little_navmap.log.1 to issue and crash reports
  • Added new X-Plane 12 VASI types APAPI_L and APAPI_R.
  • Fixed issue where X-Plane airways had wrong type assigned. Example:
    EVMON to PAPAL airway Z8 was wrongly declared Jet. #1111
  • Corrected VOR range for X-Plane data to use 130 NM for “unspecified but likely high power VOR”.
