How to Update the Default FSX Navaid Database?
2 replies to this topic

Is it possible, without a bunch of tweaking config files, etc., to update the default FSX navaid database? It's VERY frustrating to try and plan a flight (I'm using the REX flight planner, which polls the FSX navaid database), and intersections don't show up. I've been using VasFMC as a quick work-around, but I can't use Radar Contact or VoxATC with the default database because it's missing so many intersections, etc. Any ideas? Thanks much!Paul

The short answer is no, we cannot update the FSX Navaid Database.The long answer is yes, it could be done but would involve several hundred man/years to do so manually, since the database is scattered among hundreds of files...
