No nav data in Custom Data\GNS430\NavData

Recommended Posts

I just copied over the GNS430 folder (see path above) from XP10 to XP11, and discovered there was no data contained in it.  I checked the XP10 location and found the same. I did a search and it appears as though XP10 must have been reading nav data from another location X-Plane 10/Resources) for all of my add ons.  I assume that XP11 doesn't offer this option (at least for now), so it's essential to get access to the datasets in the Custom Data\GNS430\Navdata location.

 

My question- where do I get the nav data from to put into Custom Data\GNS430\Navdata?  Is this what I can purchase from a 3rd party provider (Navigraph, AeroSoft)?

 

Thanks,  Bruce.

Thanks Adrian, and that explains why this folder didn't exist in XP11.

 

What I am trying to do is to give the XP10 planes I have imported to XP11 a nav data source. I assume I need to purchase the data?

 

Thanks, Bruce

OK- so thinking this through I just copied over the files in XP10\Resources\GNS430\NavData to XP11\Custom Data\GNS430\Navdata and it seems to work-  although I probably should update the data via Navigraph at some point to make it current.

I know that the CRJ-200 still uses the GNS430\Navdata folder even in XP11, so i'm sure other planes do too. I just added the folder manually and then added it to the Navigraph FMS Data Manager program so it gets updated.
