I'm thinking of buying this, does it have basic functionality on Syria? ... can it navigate to a given coordinate?

Short answer is yes.

• It takes it's data from the mission file - so imports the mission flight plan (if there is one).
• It takes the airport and Nav data from the Syria map - so the "nearest airport/direct to" list works
• You can create user waypoints by slewing the map cursor or entering DDM co-ordinates

• The main thing missing graphicly in Syria is any indication of the coast line.


• I'm not sure how well the NS430's MagVar is working in Syria but it seems good enough to get you close to your desired bearing/course

• As the NS430 doesn't load/use Syria's terrain height map, it doesn't seem to suffer from the Persian Gulf's stutters and slow downs.

This Grim Reapers video covers most of the DCS NS430's options
