Little NavMap Changed in 2022
LNM seemed to have changed the Map Web Page around 2022 which stopped the map being updated. Please enter in the SIM EFB Panel Link 1 >> URL:

And download the following file:
Unzip to replace the existing file in the "Web" subdirectory of LNM. It makes the map refresh every 15 seconds be default. We get a slight flash on the refresh. Anything less is enjoying, and options are 1,5,15,30,120, in the last few lines of the file.
If already running LNM web server should be restarted, and any SIM EFB panels should be closed and reopened if already open.
