Magdec.bgl In The Fsx

Recommended Posts

Hi gentlmen,I need your help. I have tried to readout the magnetic variations from the FSX but I believe I do something wrong. When I read the FS9 magdec.bgl, all is ok - when I use the same code with the FSX magdec.bgl, I get wrong values (tested with my homebase LOWW 48N/16E - i get 3.3

Hi Richard, great to hear, that you try to implement my suggestion regarding the fs9 magvar which I made some time ago.

The Level-D 767 is the only aircraft that doesn't seem to react on changes to the magdec.bgl. I assume it uses its own database. Jan-Paul
We calculated magvar internally in the 767. I've changed that for the 757. We read the FS BGL instead.Wade
