After downloading, just unzip, and run the EXE inside the folder. Please read the rest of this page to discover how the program works, and how to configure LittleNavMap to see everybody.
If you and your friends want to see each other on mapping software such as LittleNavMap to run your own air traffic control sessions for group flights, you will no doubt have discovered that Microsoft Flight Simulator only communicates AI aircraft to external mapping applications such as LittleNavMap - not users. The Virtual Flight Online Transmitter application addresses that.
The desktop application connects to a running copy of Microsoft Flight Simulator via the SimConnect interface, and reads your aircraft's type, latitude, longitude, altitude, and airspeed. It combines the data with your callsign and name, and sends it to a server on the internet.
The server then provides a URL that outputs all aircraft that have been updated in the last 5 minutes in "whazzup" format - a data format commonly used with the likes of VATSIM and IVAO - and crucially LittleNavMap. The URL of the server can be used to configure LittleNavMap to show you and your friends aircraft on the map.
If you would like to see everybody broadcasting their position with Virtual Flight Online Transmitter, follow these steps in LittleNavMap:
To only pull back aircraft broadcasting a given group name in LittleNavMap, modify the URL in the Online Flying dialog within LittleNavMap to have ?GroupName=xyz (use your group name) on the end of it - which implements the filter.
If you would like to see who is online without running LittleNavMap, visit the Who is Online? page (linked at the top of this page too).
