Another way is to use the ZKV1000 instrument. See http://wiki.flightgear.org/FlightGear_Newsletter_October_2010. It is so far in the Hondajet and Diamond DA42 aircraft. I have re-used the moving map code from ZKV1000 in my TSR2 project. The moving map takes a set of map images (in windows

James, this sounds very interesting. I will check out the code this weekend if I get time and have a look through. I am pretty sure that this is the way I need to go to implement my instument! Alan, that instrument looks interesting. I may be able to use the technique for a 'layer' on my display.

I think the original intention was to keep the read/write together and centralized so it was easier to keep format changes compatible. That said, I haven't been tracking terragear-cs changes so I don't know what version of simgear they are using or if they've made other changes around this area.
