Recommended Posts

Guest Dimon1971

Here is RJAA-KSEA taken from flightaware.GUPPY OTR8 KAGIS A590 PABBA OTR5 ADNIP R591 AAMYY R451 ADK 5200N 17000W 5200N 16000W 5200N 15000W 5000N 14000W PRETY TAMRU TOU JAWBN9.I'm having problem with entering georgaphical coordinates. For example, fix "5200N 17000W" I enter into FMC as "N52W017" and the same applies to other fixes. As a result I have total lenght of the route almost 11.000 miles. What's wrong with my tecniques.Appreciate your helps and suggestions.

not at my pc now but the only thing i can think of is if you enter a VOR etc and are given multiple choices make sure you pick the right one. After entering the full route select PLN and use the STEP function in the legs page to cycle through the route and see if it looks ok

N52W017 would be somewhere west of Ireland which isn't too likely to be on the route between RJAA and KSEA./ Jesper

Hi,> 5200N 17000WIn this case you have to put 52N70 into the FMC. Hope this helps.

The FMC chapter in the manual tells you how to enter geo-coordinates.
