FSX Google Earth Tracker
Flight Simulator X Google Earth Tracker FSXGET
Important: I'm currently looking for screenshots and pictures of FSX boats and ground vehicles to integrate them with FSXGET. Anyone any pictures?!? Please send them to email@example.com together with the type of boat or vehicle as shown in FSXGET if possible (e.g. wash_ferry_sm, ferry2, VEH_water_cruiseship2_sm, ...). I'd really appreciate your help!
FSXGET 0.1 Beta 3 released. Contains new GUI features and major bugfixes. See release notes for more details.
FSXGET 0.1 Beta 2 released. Contians checks for operation system and service pack versions, check and auto-install for SimConnect and selectable units for altitude, etc. (meters or feet)
FSXGET 0.1 Beta 1 released. Supports easy configuration of FSXGET and Google Earth running on one computer and FSX running on another. The HowTo article on setting up this configuration has been updated, too.
After a long break, a new release candidate has been published today correcting two bug regarding x64 and non-English systems.
See a list of all past news on the news site.
FSXGET is a little tool that enables Google Earth to show Flight Simulator X user aircraft and AI object positions and course predictions.
Although FSX's internal world map has been improved compared to former versions, it is, not at last due to being an offline world map, still far away from Google Earth's map quality. That's why FSXGET tries to link the two, i.e. extract the simulation data from FSX and provide it to Google Earth to display it.
The tool which originally started as an extremly tiny experiment, trying nothing but to show the user aircraft's position in Google Earth has grown a lot and started to support AI Aircrafts, Boats, Ground Vehicles as well. Course prediction mechanisms have been added and most recently also functionality to display flight plans.
Finally in January 2007 it had been decided to publish the application as open source. Since then, the project is being hosted here on
CodePlex GitHub. You can still visit the original page and leave your comments there. The CodePlex discussion page GitHub issue page is another option to leave your comments.
Just to clear up any confusion, the following pages are now hosted on CodePlex:
- The old forum is replaced by the
CodePlex discussion pageGitHub issue page.
- The former screenshot gallery can now be found here.
- All former, present and future download are / will be availbale for download at the releases page on
CodePlexGitHub. The old forum and former screenshots site are no longer available.
For more screenshots, have a look at the screenshot gallery.
