google map?

Postby M Turek » Sat Mar 14, 2009 6:35 am

okay, one last problem, i finally got the logs up on the poc and everything is working good except i'm not showing up on either map(at the login screen, or the google map). Doesn't there need to be a line in the sax.ini for that?

Good to know all your other woes are solved.

Marty Becker is the specialist on the Google Maps part; I'm sure he will chime in. Ensure your SAX.ini file has a line that reads

StatusSite=http://www.sunairexpress.com/xxxxxxx/position_update.php (the xxxxxx = the folder on the server. Please email me or Dave Blake for the folder name)

That line should be in the [FSacars] section. Since it's very likely the line is already there, do you see yourself in the opening map to the POC once your FSACARS log is on?

Matt,
I will send you a new SAX.ini file.

One more thing, you will not show up on the maps if you do not fill out the FSACARS flight plan correctly. All required fields must be entered including the flight number and registration number. The link to send your position to the map will work with or without the "www" before the sunairexpress.com.

Matt:

Make sure you enter the correct flight number, departure and destination codes into FSACARS. I have seen you on the Google Map in the past.

well, even though its been forever since i posted, i finally got the google map problem fixed. its pretty dumb, but i didn't have the most recent version of FSACARS. i reinstalled and downloaded the update of the SATA website, and used the new SAX.ini file i got, and presto, works like a charm. So all the people who might not be able to get FSACARS working right... make sure you have the newsest version :o hahaha
