Entering Lat and Longs In The FMC

Recommended Posts

Guest gdafc

Hi all,Can someone please clarify how to enter lat and longs into the FMC, I used to be able to do it as per Tim's tutorial but now it will not work.For example N50 55 81 W001 22 06 I think should be entered as N50558W00122.0 but all I get is NOT IN DATABASE. Like I say I was able to enter them but not now.I even got an error with Tims one, out of the tutorial N33405W01702.1Please help!Many Thanks, Garry.

you need to input them into the leg's page, and it has to be 13 characters.So, for example, N 42:21:51 W 70:00:23WOULD BEN42215W070002The error with Tims is the " . "!! Take out the " . " and it should work!Hope that helps!

The important thing to remember is to enter the LAT/LON as 12 characters.
