FMS Data Manager
Navigraph FMS Data Manager is a client software which allows you to effortlessly download and install FMS Data for your flight simulation addons and tools. Special attention has been put towards making the software easy to operate. Many users will find that the setup procedure simply consists of two steps: 1) automatically scanning the computer for all installed addons, and 2) performing a batch update.

Manage your Addons
The main interface, the Addon List, is where you see all your mapped addons. A mapped addon is an addon that the software has been able to locate on your system, which also entails that it has mapped a path to its data folder. The addons in this list can be updated, backed up or restored from backup, either individually or in bulk using the buttons above the list. The color coding provides a visual overview of each addon's data status: green (latest revision installed), orange (old revision installed), purple (data installed from backup), grey (no data installed).
The Addon Mappings section, the second button in the toolbar, is where you can scan, manually add, or delete addon mappings. Scanning will find the most common addons and tools, but if it fails to find an addon you may add it manually using the Add button. Just select the addon from the list of supported ones, and select its data folder. Pressing Remove of course doesn't remove you addon, only the mapping in the FMS Data Manager.
Why not switch to a visual theme from the flight deck? You'll find the setting in Settings -> Interface.
