No distance to Mapt in LNAV/VNAV GNSS aprroach

Recommended Posts

Good day,

 

I'm practicing the GNSS approach, and I noticed that if I perform a GNSS approach in LNAV/VNAV, I don't get the distance to the Mapt in the upper left side of the PDF.

 

I do get it if I perform the same approach in IAN.

 

By the way, in IAN approach, the distance is given with a single digit. Should not there be a double digit precision, like 6,3 NM ? Here I just get 6NM, sound a bit weird, I will double check in the real plane tomorrow.

 

Thanks a lot for your assistance and congratulation for this great sim.

 

If you could just update the FMC to version 11, it would be awesome :)

I have tried various, but for example in Paris Orly Runway 26, if you fly the RNAV Approach, you get not distance to Mapt in LNAV/VNAV as you should.

 

And worse, in IAN, the distances go from digit to digit, for example 6,0 to 5,0 without showing 5,9 5,8 5,7...

 

It's really bad when you want to check your glide path !!!!!

 

I think I will open a ticket for this bug.


In EKAH, same trouble, RWY 10R, no distance to Mapt in LNAV/VNAV and RNV approach...

 

Really an annoying bug !

Both runways as you mentioned is showing the distance to the MAPt or ie RWY26

 

I say again i don't use the NGX so its best you open a ticket up.

I have noticed this for a long time. Was not sure if it was normal. None of the updates ever addressed it. Thanks for posting, hopefully we can get this minor issue resolved.

I did double checked in the Full flight sim of my company.

 

It's really a bug.

 

Will open a ticket (and pray) :)

May be only for the American WAAS and not the European SBAS ?
