Add coordinates into FMC

Recommended Posts

Hi,Is it possible to manually add coordinates for a waypoint into the legs page of the FMC instead of a waypoint's name?I googled around and found this for the pmdg 747:4800N 01500W = N4800.0W01500.0And this:4800N 01500W = N4800.0W/01500.0However, I'm flying the pmdg 737-800 and it doesn't work with that. In the first case I get "Not in database" and in the second "Invalid entry".Thanks,Martin.

I believe these all work:N latitude/W longitudeN52 00/W075 00 = 5275NN50 00/W040 00 = 5040NN07 00/W008 00 = 0708NN75 00/W170 00 = 75N70N07 00/W120 00 = 07N20N latitude/E longitudeN50 00/E020 00 = 5020EN75 00/E050 00 = 7550EN06 00/E008 00 = 0608EN75 00/E150 00 = 75E50N06 00/E110 00 = 06E10S latitude/W longitudeS52 00/W075 00 = 5275WS50 00/W040 00 = 5040WS07 00/W008 00 = 0708WS75 00/W170 00 = 75W70S07 00/W120 00 = 07W20S latitude/E longitudeS50 00/E020 00 = 5020SS75 00/E050 00 = 7550SS06 00/E008 00 = 0608SS75 00/E150 00 = 75S50S06 00/E110 00 = 06S10
