• Effective immediately we will be deleting, without notice, any negative threads or posts that deal with the use of encryption and streaming of scanner audio.

    We've noticed a huge increase in rants and negative posts that revolve around agencies going to encryption due to the broadcasting of scanner audio on the internet. It's now worn out and continues to be the same recycled rants. These rants hijack the threads and derail the conversation. They no longer have a place anywhere on this forum other than in the designated threads in the Rants forum in the Tavern.

    If you violate these guidelines your post will be deleted without notice and an infraction will be issued. We are not against discussion of this issue. You just need to do it in the right place. For example:

Want to add a VFR Sectional map onto your VRS view? I figured it out today. First go here https://github.com/ProHill/VRS-Charts click on download, after that unzip and save to a folder. Rememeber the folder. Before we begin make sure you have the plugin "Custom Content" for VRS. Download it from the home page from VRS. Ok, time to configure the custom content. Open vrs tools, open plugins, open custom content options. Click new click the grey box right side of insert to html and navigate to that folder you unzipped. Click headeradd.html click open. Ok good one line done. Next line click new click map toolbar.html. Click open. Change the gray box to body not head (drop down menu). Ok two down lets go to the third line. Click new click custom-map.js click open, also change from head to body. One more line click new click toolbar-mobile.html click open and also change head to body. Ok almost there. Check the box for address enter this value /desktop.html (default is /index.html). Restart VRS On the right top corner you will have a new looking box click it and the options for VFR/IFR/Google are there try them out. I personally like the VFR Sectional for my area. Enjoy!!

that works great... thanks for the info, do you know if there is a way to change the plane color, its hard to see the white outlines in the VFR map.

Overlays

The configuration shown is not working for some reason. I've got the drop-down toolbar in the upper left but no overlays when I select any option.

Any ideas what may be the issue?

Thanks for the info. I discovered my issue with the sectional overlays.... I didn't change the map provider. The VFR and IFR options are functioning correctly but Google options display for "developmental purposes only".
