Hi folks,

I've written a tutorial on how to get started with G2XPL. If you've not heard of it, it's a free application that will download data from map servers and transform them into photo ground textures for X-Plane based on your aircrafts current position.

Hope this is of some help!

Cheers,

Mark

Hi, and welcome to XPFW. Thanks for your helpful first post. :)

G2XP is a great utility, and it's good to have a concise tutorial to show people the somewhat complex setup.

Hi,

Thanks for the welcome and positive feedback :)

I've just come across something very similar to G2XPL that works for Mac users - it's called GMaps for X-Plane and can be found here.

By the way, a little about me in case anyone's interested!

I've been a flight simmer for more years than I care to remember (how long since FS on the C64?!). I've been running FlightSimX for around 3 years now. I'm a Mac lover and currently use a 17" MacBook Pro as my main machine. I run X-Plane 9 on the MBP and boot into XP via Bootcamp for FS9 and FSX (hope it's okay to say those words here!).

I've been using X-Plane more and more (both on the MBP and the iPhone :) ) recently and there's been a lot of interest in it on the site, hence me making my way here to find out more. Having said that, I love flight simming on any platform. I'm also a great fan of Condor - the soaring sim.

Cheers,

Mark

I have a similar setup to yours. I too have a MBP so G2XPL is out of the question. I tried GMAPS but I can't for the life of me figure out how to install it for x-plane. Any chance you could help me approach this or point me in the right direction for a tutorial? I'm not that programming savy.

Much Thanks
