Entering route point based on LLZ - how?

Recommended Posts

But if you have appropriate charts or FSNavigator you can enter a specific latitude/longitude fix. Looking at the chart on the previous page the interception of the A25 and W2D airways is at coordinates of 5353.16N/00312.55W. To enter this as a fix you would enter it in the format:5353.2N/312.6WThen press the
