    SA-WXR - Recommended over pmGetWeather?

    Hi,

    Are there any users of SA-WXR out there? Is it better than pmGetWeather? Just looking for some views before I part with my hard-earned cash!

    Thanks.

    Hey Ray. Yes I own it and there is no comparison to Getweater. Getweather just displays a picture, SA-WXR reads the weather from within FS and works as a real weather radar. Tilt pan and all that works ! Looks great on the ND!!

    Ray,

    This software is Awesome. Remember Pmgetweather takes an image and overlays it on the ND. You can't change your tilt and gain. SA_WXR also places it's image on the PM ND and is adjustable.

    Fantastic software, absolutely Fantastic.

    Hi Bob and Trev,

    Crikey! Two replies in 20 mins. That's good enough for me. I did a search on Google and it didn't return many hits. Also, the support forum on Simflight seems to have patchy support with some recent purchasers not receiving a registration code.

    If it's a one-man show I suppose he needs some free time.

    Thanks once again.

    Yes, the software is good but can't say much for Support. I would visit the forum and do some reading before purchasing.

    I've been using SA_WXR since it came out, it's worth the purchase but just be prepared for some pretty buggy software and limited if any support. I still use it all the time but I find I frequently have to re-start the program due to crashes and the wx depicted is often inaccurate. Still, better than nothing...

    Hi Ray,

    I am using it for about 6 months now and no crash of it yet. That's a great add on to use with PM Software.

    Hi Tim,

    I spent some time today reading through the support forum and it didn't fill me with confidence. But this guy seems to have cornered the market so it's Hobson's Choice.

    I suppose if it works as described I'll be okay. Pity we can't see the number of sales.

    Thanks.
