FMC Route errors

Recommended Posts

Hi All, I fly from New York to Tel Aviv rather regularly. I get my route from Flight Aware.com, using a real route and then copy it to FS Build. I keep my Airac cycles current. I notice that some waypoints are way off course, (probably NAT Tracks) but since I'm not yet really comfortable inserting them into the FMC I delete them. When I'm finished I check to make sure I have a clean route before transfering the route to FSX. Now if I understand correctly, when you enter a waypoint and the FMC gives you multiple choices the one on top should be the closest to your route. Well, this doesn't happen, even though the route shows up correctly on both FSX's and my EFB map. When I get to certain waypoins in flight, my FMC wants to fly the aircraft to a waypoint way off course that shows up on the ND as part of the route but not on my course maps. Ed Kammerman
