Recommended Posts

helloi am new to the pmdg 747 and so far i must say it is an EXCELLENT addon and well worth getting.But i have a slight problemfor the moment i would like to fly with gps from A to B is there a way a can assign a button to open the GPS or find out the heading i need to get from A to B?or can i promgram the fmc to tell me information i need for the flight because i have followed a guide and it sais turn on the LNAV and VNAV and the plane will fly there but my LNAV and VNAV will not light up at all.i just want simple flights until i have the time to learn the advanced fmc programming.im sorry if this has been answered a million times before but i have looked and not found the answer anywhere so im hoping the knowledge of the guys and gals here on the avsim forums can help me.any help is much appreciated.Richy Gibson

The 744 does not have a GPS window you can use, your flight path is on your CRT MAP display. as far as getting from point A to B on the FMC type in the origin and destination then hit activate then hit execute. that should give you a straight line. if it doesnt then on the route page that tells you your origin and destination hit next page then type in the airports there then activate then execute.

I'm sure as you learn more you'll get more and more satisfaction from it and realise it was worth every cent you paid :-)
