That's weird - I wrote the dialog, and originally added it to the 'Autopilot' menu - next to the route manager. When the menubar was recently cleaned up, it was moved tot he 'Equipment' menu - which I wholeheartedly agree with, since the Autopilot menu is disabled on the C172, for example.

As far as I know, the menu item is 'just' a regular entry in the Equipment menu, so I would guess the f14 would be disabling it - but that seems quite unlikely too. We should probably find out if it's deliberate or accidental.

I've been grepping for Map, map, dialog and haven't turned up anything yet that seems to connect.  Any suggestions what keywords I should even be grepping for?  I haven't been able to find any promising references in the f-14b tree.
