does the choice of map impact photogrametry in any way?

Since the last two updates, I am not able to change the screen

7.0.2 downloads just a few ground pictures and then It stops. Version 6 was working perfectly. Any solutions? Thanks.

This is a great app that does a serious black magic. I am using the latest Bing images, which I find better then Google’s. The main problem of this app is the morphing of the images in the intermediate area of the plane. It can be very distracting. Up to 5,000 feet or so it is less pronounced. I use this app mainly in the Middle East and there it makes a significant difference compared to the default imagery.

I am the some please can't direct using Google map user , i Set the Proxy and test ok ,but can't start , it show that MS server override is not working

Please try:

  1. Disable any global proxies
  2. Disable any game accelerator

Why do I not have the upportunity to NOT upgrade..?

7.0.0 Installs OK

Runs OK - but every map option returns a Proxy error and will not stream tiles - therefore unusable for me.

6.2.3 still working for me

Thanks for the update.


The Download Installer Link from inside the previous version only downloads a file called latest.yml.

I can't clean the cache manually. Obliged to delete cache.db and create another one behind.

Request failed with status code 500

Detail: The process cannot access the file 'D:\Cache maps fs2020\cache.db' because it is being used by another process.

I tried the default location or a different location on same driver and different driver. It shows up the same error. FYI, I have full permissions + running all apps under admin rights,

Nice work. Would it be possible to have an option for the cache to be automatically deleted when shutting down the app ?

New Version 7.0

  • Interface looks nicer and more useful
  • The installation had problems as it doesn't use anymore the "User/app data" folder it defaults to an old path which is difficult to cleat... took me several attempts to change that path. Also the setup is not able to create is folder in a root of a drive but once a folder is pointed to it it insistes on creating another subfolder.
  • Once installed the application starts with error that the server could not be started and suggests pressing Ctrl+R to try to restart which apparently does the job but it should not cive that error at the start.
  • Durring flight the app seems to work normally and seems to be able to use an older cache... so far so good.

The mod is running as usual. But, all of a sudden it doesn't load the google imagery into the sim. It's loading the Bing imagery. It worked fine up until a few days ago and just stopped loading properly. It shows the mod as running also? Thank you.

I just got apple maps, and it is outdated just like google maps. It does not show my Apartment Building which was built in 2021.

after updating from lastday, all of scenery's ground texture doesnt appear


hi, sent you 30$ can you please send me the license?

What's the difference between Google Maps server 1 and server 2?

OMG! I LOVE IT !!! Download, install, run befor MSFS be happy and donate! To leave some Dollars for the Dev its only a little bit harder 😉 But Do IT ! 😀

Crash my game now my game not opening thanks good mod.

Absolute game changer. I may be late to the party but wow - Apple map stands above them all. My sim even feels smoother now and looks stunning!!! Need more stars to give here.
