Navigraph Cycle 1705 and NGX FMC

Recommended Posts

Hi,

since Navigraph cycle 1705, I found that there are a lot of DPs, STARs and approaches coded with INTC pseudo waypoints, which appears to give the NGX a hard time.

Example: use ILS 25C into EDDF, e. g. via ROLSO. Check what gets generated on the ND in both NAV and PLAN mode.

There is an INTC for the final approach course, and the ND renders a circular path for the intercept, the same for the missed approach from TAU VOR to MTR VOR.

I have found almost all procedures with INTC coded into them result in these circular paths.

Taking out the INTCs in the FMC straightens the lines again and I can fly without any trouble, but I am wondering why the NGX has a hard time rendering proper paths for these intercepts.

Anyone else faces this problem?

 

Thanks

Dave, are you getting this with the revision 3 update of cycle 1705 for PMDG?  I'm currently at cruise level with 2 hours remaining in my 738NGX and won't be able to check until later.

Dave I had same issue. Downloaded Version 3 of cycle 1705 resolved the problem for me.

Hi all,

 

thanks a lot for your suggestions. I was still on revision 1 of the navdata :dry: Guess I should check for updates more often even within the validity of a cycle.

Updating to rev 3 right now. Will report back.

That, or if you notice an issue, simply check the NavData Manager first to see if there's a revision. No need to check it all the time if you're not seeing any issues.

Rev 3 fixed all issues.

Thanks again for pointing me to the updated navdata.


Case closed.
