Not sure I'm following you :-hmmm - the above are just EXAMPLES of how you feed the fmc oceanic waypoints you might encounter in any given transoceanic route off Flightaware or wherever.If you wanted to actually see a waypoint's geographical location you'd need some kind of graphical representation of your route, like an enroute chart, or program like fsbuild or fsnavigator etcAny of this help you :) ?regards,Markhttp://www.dreamfleet2000.com/a320/custbanner2.jpgPC Power Silencer 470/3.2HT/2048mb/ATI X1950pro/SB Audigy
