APIC Creates a .kml file in the directory: Program Files\Approach\Apic\Data that is named with the starting and ending points of the flight plan.
For Example: If you had a flight plan set up to go from Los Angeles to St. Louis to New York, the file for that flight plan would be named LAX2JFK.kml
You can also view saved flight plans in Google Earth
When you open the .kml file in Google Earth, it will display each waypoint and path between them
To enable route tracking, open the Settings menu, then open the
Geographical Data Menu
APIC also has a
route tracking feature, and outputs a .kml file of your route, also viewable in Google Earth
Click the Route Tracking button to enable the route tracking feature
APIC will store your route to the route.kml file found in the directory:
You can open this file in Google Earth the same way as explained previously for saved flight plans
The Direct-To button has two different functionalities, depending if a current flight plan is active, or not
If a Direct-To flight plan is not currently active, then the Direct-To button will simply open the Flight Plan dialogue box
If a Direct-To flight plan is currently active, then the Direct-To button will redraw the Direct-To flight path from your current location.
This feature is useful if you have strayed from the original Direct-To flight path
