I am using the flight planner for a VFR plan, it is very difficult to find landmark details in the VFR MAP supllied in the flight planner tool. There is even less information than in a normal chart. My solution is to have Google Maps with Satelite view open in another window and use that to assist in landmark identification. I also of course have VFRMAP open as well so that I have a standard chart view. I flip back and forth between the maps and thereby work out my landmarks.
Rather than the page flipping method I now use it would be very great if the map in flight planner allowed for a direct overlay of the google maps and VFR charts to insure that the overlay is accurate.
