LAT/LONG Waypoints MD-11

Recommended Posts

Good Day,i just tried to program my FMC for an Transpacific flight from HKG to LAX. I want insert some PAT waypoints which are in LAT/LONG Format e.g. 3600N 15000E. In the PMDG FMS guide i read i can enter such waypoints in NxxWxxx Format. So i typed N36E150 but it says "Not in Database". I also tried some other Formats but nothing worked. For NAT waypoints which are like "5600N 03000W" i can type into the FMS "5630N" and that's the only way it works but just for Northatlantic Tracks not for the Pacific Tracks. So maybe i'am doing something wrong but i'am not able to insert LAT/LONG waypoints into the FMS.So, i need some help.Thanks,Michael Nikel
