FMC leg wind data displays inccorrectly

Recommended Posts

Flying towards waypoint LOVEK today, I was displaying ACT LOVEK WIND page as page 2/66. It was not possible to display page 1/66 using the PREV PAGE key.

 

Having crossed LOVEK, the ACT ASNOT WIND page then displays as 3/65, rather than 1/64. ASNOT is the next but one waypoint with DELMI in between. So the ACT DELMI WIND page is being skipped.

 

This surely is a bug-let!

I'm trying to understand what you're getting at, but after having read it a few times, I'm completely lost.

 

Could you post screenshots instead?

Hi Kyle,

I am not confident in creating screeshots, so I will have to explain further...

 

Displaying the ACT WIND page, I would expect it to update to the next waypoint as I pass the current one. Instead, it is updating to the next waypoint but one, so I have to PREV PAGE to get to the now current waypoint winds page.

 

In addition, it seems to be only capable of displaying from page 2 of ACT WIND waypoints onwards. This means that there is apparently no page 1 for them.

 

HTH

Without seeing a picture (or checking it myself - I'm rebuilding my sim comp, so I can't), I'm not quite sure that this is actually an issue, to be honest.

I see you have Windows 7.  Windows 7 has a tool called the Snipping Tool.  Start Menu > click in the search bar at the bottom > type "snip" hit ENTER.  This can take a snapshot quickly and dump it into an image file, which you can upload to Picasa, Photobucket, or the like.

 

From there, you can follow this little write up:

Kyle,

Here goes

The ACT WIND page went to page 3 without my intervention. So it appears that the ACT WIND pages jump 2 waypoints along the route instead of 1 (that for TEVDA).

 

HTH

 

PS It appears that after reaching the next waypoint (still displaying page 3 of ACT WIND) it then updates the display to page 2 for that waypoint correctly (i.e. it alternates between one waypoint ahead and the correct next waypoint).

Interesting.  I'd submit a ticket so they're sure to look into it.

 

...and thanks for the effort on the screenshot.

Hi Kyle,

 

I feel somewhat 'modern' now in being able to submit screenshots with a forum post! We oldies find some of these newfangled interweb toys quite challenging.

 

I have submitted a ticket on this (another new experience for me). Many thanks for your help and understanding.

 

Regards, R

Having taught applications and technical classes for two years - some of them including "oldies" - I fully understand where you're coming from.

You're welcome.  I actually use the V key, but that also carries the weight of a tutorial on converting BMP to JPEG (the forum doesn't accept BMPs if I recall correctly).

Don't  think it  does,  but its  just as easy  still just edit  and  save  to jpeg  but  your  way I see is a lot  easier for those  who don't  know  how  to convert :)

It's fixed by the way if you didn't infer that from EV's post ;)
