Apart from all the true things already mentioned above by all of you (and I can only agree) I would like to add my two main problems: in the manual the airport chart for CDG doesn’t show you the taxiway-names. And the bigger problem is, I’m not able to get a correct command line with taxi-instructions.

I’ve had it about 2 weeks now and it just annoys me everytime I fire it up.
