But Airnav is just pretty pictures Dirkou!!  Big thumbs up

...and more importantly (imo), doesn't have a flight history feature.

FBOweb is the better all round package and you know it really! Big grin Big grin Big grin  Big thumbs up

I think that trip.com used to have one. Not sure if they do anymore.

Yea trip.com/cheaptickets.com does have one under travel resources on the top bar. It is pretty good and reliable but the size of the plane is very big on the map which does get confusing. I use it now sometimes.  Smile/happy/getting dizzy

FE is very expensive...you pay $10 for 10 hours of usage while with AirNav you pay the same for 60 hours...

Dirkou you are correct. However, when I tried both systems at the same time last summer I found AirNav to be ~7-10 minutes delayed over FE. I cancelled my AirNav subscription and stuck with FE. Otherwise, AirNav is a nice system just a little sluggish at times.

yes you are right too. For non professional use AirNav is delayed due to FAA restrictions. Anyway I've heard from their support that in a month they will have total real-time data for Professionals plus meteo information for free.
I also experienced some problems with their earlier versions (some times it freezed when working data) but last version (6.3) that is out for a few months simply works great.
