Roar, to add new waypoints to your flight plan, simply add the waypoint(s) to the "FLT/PLN" page by using the LSK next to position where you want it/them to go. You will have to delete the discontinuity created. But it is a simple procedure to add waypoints.

Darn, was thinking of the PSS AirbusPro package. Sorry about that, am at work. Go to the LEGS page and add the waypoint(s) using the same procedure as above.

Place-bearing-distance is "BAE125/50". This is the Badger VOR, Radial 125 and 50 miles.

Oh -- another one too -- the 777 supports 'along the track' waypoinst. I didn't see it mentioned in the manual (I might have missed it :(), but it is there.For example, if you are flying along and you have a route programmed and you want a waypoint 5 nm before the Calgary VOR (YYC), you type YYC/-5 and press the LSK next to YYC -- it will insert a waypoint in. Likewise, if you want one after the waypoint, you could type YYC/+5 and do the same thing.This is very useful when, for instance, ATC wants you to descend and cross at a specific altitude and distance from a waypoint on your route. (e.g. "Air Canada 123, descend and maintain 6000 cross 10,000 at 6 DME from the Buffalo VOR")The main types that I know of that are supported are:PBDPBPBVORINTNDBAlong the TrackDid I miss any? Are there any goodies buried in there that might not have been in the documents? :)

Victor is correct - a fix page has now been implimented on our 777. Rather than just bug fixes we at PSS have listened to feedback from our users and have added additional features which were never planned to be incorporated in our rendition - making it even better value for money!
