I had a similar problem yesterday. On a short flight from KBOS to KJFK I decided to change my route by going direct to a waypoint further down the plan. After putting the waypoint in the correct order I pressed EXEC and that sent FS into pause. Also, I have as yet been unable to call up a flight plan made by FSBuild. When I put the correct name into CO ROUTE and try and activate it does not call up the plan. The saved plans works fine.???Thanks,John

Hit the button and scroll through the list like you do for the PMDG FMC. Select the correct plan and your on your way>Bob

Hi John,Since saving a the default cessa as suggested with engines off and electics and avionics on and then loading up either 200 or 300 and saving the problem disappeared with the input of cost index. I now load up the 200 or 300 as per suggestion and no promlem inputting anything into the CDU.MikeFTGBAV[http://img464.imageshack.us/img464/4969/phoenixps5ni.jpg]

Hi,The B777 is fantastic but one little problem is that when I enter a value into the Cost Index line of the CDU either in VC or 2d the whole sim freezes CTD. I am using the Gold version.I have tried completing the PERF INIT page various ways round leaving the Cost Index to last or even completing first and always the same, it freezes (CTD. If I dont enter a value then everything completes on the PERF INIT screen and goes on to the Trust Limit page. A typical value I use is 80 or 100.Thanks.Mike[http://img464.imageshack.us/img464/4969/phoenixps5ni.jpg]

Hello:In my case:I request an existing SAVED route.I change the rwy as weather has changed and rwy is differentWhen entering in perf you normally put or request load....I have noticied for instance that if I do not put reserves FIRST then trying to put cost FREEZES fs9;in the contrary if you have some sort of "sequence" putting reserves first then Flightlevel and then cost t does not freezzIt can also freeze when putting additional waypoints, but it is never the same way. I am surprised that you can not replicate the problemI will cantinue to look for more precisionsPedro

Due to my using a lot of other PSS products as well as PMDG and others, I cannot and will not save th cessna wityh engines off.It isn't needed here anyway - that has nothing to do with the CDU issue. I also have had almost no problems with the routes or cost index. I have flown over 100 routes already and the only freeze I had was on that one route. Simply doing everything in a specific order was the answer. If you ave your default flight with engines off you'll cause issues in many other add-on aircraft in your hanger.Of course, if your hanger does not have any of the above mentioned publishers, then no problem -- still, I do not think the Cessna has anything to do with the CDU at all.PSS -- correct me if I am wrong on that?
