Update 11.0 for the FMC ?

Recommended Posts

Hi !

 

I would like to know if there were any plan to upgrade the FMC to the 11.0 version ?

 

In my company all the planes have just been upgraded to this version.

 

Any info on this ?

Thanks a lot

Full names in the PMDG forums please Florent.

 

There are no plans announced by PMDG to upgrade the NGX or any component in the NGX.

Full names ? What do you mean by that exactly ? Sorry but I'm french and my english is far from being perfect :)

 

About the FMC, that's sad to know, it would be nice to see this product updated.

 

For now it's ok, but in the future if other upgrades are performed by Boeing, the FMC will seem quite outdated in the PDMG add-on...

 

Anyway, thanks a lot for your answer.

He  means  you need  to add  your  full name  in your  post(other wise  your post might get  deleted)  seems  that you  had  anyway,  best way  is  to insert your  name  in your  signature  block  so  you don't  have  to type it  in all the  time

Is this the version that has Route 1 and Route ?

Could PMDG answer about that ?

Any plan ?
 

In the P3D version, the FMC is still stuck in 10.8 ?

 

Thanks !

In a livestream from a charity event they hinted something about the possibility to evaluate the idea of doing a new version of the 737. Maybe that one will have an updated fmc, that is if they actually decide to do a new 737 at all.

What makes it so useful?

I wonder too. All I've come up so far is the ability to have the route to the alternate pre-loaded if you think you're gonna miss and the alt is a short trip.

 

I WOULD like to see RF capability added to the NGX box, it'd be a whole lot easier to build RNP approaches that way...

Ok thanks, guess that by then I would be flying another plane :D

Why would you fly another plane just because the FMC version is different?

I used it today to have two different arrival routes ready for different runways. Somewhat useful.

Why stop at 11.0?  We are using 12.0 in most of our airplanes now.

We use RTE2 to load depressurization routes when flying over mountainous terrain in Mexico and South America.  I haven't had to mess around with it much otherwise.

U12.0? That's just to much of a jump for us. We've been kicking U10.7 for at least the past 10 years. I'm surprised they didn't just go to U10.8.

 

Depressurization route? That's actually a pretty good idea.We have one sometimes over the Rockies. I'll try that next time.
