a 4 engine version. Both versions feature a 747-400 style PFD. Both

Global Positioning Systems (GPS)
GPS systems in FS98 will make it possible to automate your flight using
predefined waypoints. They show up in your simulator as a small window
making it possible to see the next target, distance to go and time to
A GPS is not a flight planner. But there are planners available which
work fine together with the GPS. Make your flight-plan and send/export
it to the GPS.
There are a lot of GPS'es available. Some of them are shareware (like
GPS98 by D. Drouin) but others are still free like:
ACS-GPS98: Swiss made GPS
display. (1393Kb) by Alain Capt. Full featured programmable GPS. Up
to 32 destinations in GPS memory. "Tour" or single destination mode. Several
arrival behaviors (continue, circle, pause). Two display modes for coordinates
(standard or FS98). Compute and display distance to destination and ETA.
Best of all: It's FREE.

as you fly to actual weather that can be downloaded off the Internet.

world and import it into FS98 using Real Weather 5.0/5.1. The program
takes care of weather changes during flight according to the real weather!

want to plan a flight, print the flightplan and/or export it to your GPS
