Inputting Bearing 136, 16nm from POL VOR FIX into the F...

Recommended Posts

Hi PMDG and Forum people...I've been trying to work out how to enter a fix that is a relation to another point...For example... 16nm from POL VOR bearing 136... How would I go about entering this into the FMS??The reason I'd like to do this is because there are only so many SID's and STAR's that are in the NAVDATA so I'd like to add my own SID and STAR fixes on the fly...Thanks in advanceRichard

Thanks for the reply Per, but that didn't work either, and besides if you leave out the + or -, FMC automaticly assumes a positive value.this is very funny, because it worked before the 737-800/900 update:-)
