B744 LEGS page: Latitude and longitude waypoint errors

Recommended Posts

Guest t288msd

I haven't been able to find an answer to this one on the forums, so hopefully someone can help me out. I'm using the 747-400.When entering LAT/LON waypoints in to the Legs page the FMC seems to misinterpret the input.Inputing S29E170 is accepted as S28E169Inputing S2900.0E17000.0 is accepted as S28E169This happens for at least half such waypoints.Any clues on how to workaround this for LAT/LON waypoints?Matt

Matt,I think this is a known glitch. IIRC the position of the waypoint is correct but the text is erroneously rounded. Work around for Pacific and Atlantic regions is to use predefined oceanic waypoints.Hope it helps,
