Hi all,

 

Quick question, I just bought the DC-6 few hours ago and so far I love it!

Just a quick question regarding the GPS, is there a way the PMDG 430 can be used for flying SID/STARS ? I know this was a limitiation with the default GPS from fsx, but with some aircraft the P3D gps does fine. I'm using FSaerodata with Navigraph to enter all the Sid's star's and navdata into P3D. This is stated on their website, offcourse talking about the default 430 not the PMDG; 

 

How can be simulated  SIDs and STAR procedures on the GPS units?

fsAerodata implements aprox. 65,000 SIDs and STARs procedures that can be simulated using a new feature available on Prepar3D GPS units. Feature is available with the 'PROC' (Procedures) button.

To enable this feature on any aircraft GPS, the user has to edit the aircraft panel configuration file, replacing the gps type from default version 'fs9gps.cab' to 'p3dgps.cab'.

 

Can this be done on the DC6. That would be amazing,

 

Thanks all.

 

Michael

Only by modifying the airport bgl file and adding the terminal procedures with a program like ADE and then compiling a new bgl.  I did that for Cold Bay and I'm not likely to do it again.

Hi Michael,

Not yet, but we're working on it.

Thanks a lot, sounds promising.

Makes online flying a bit easyer, can the  route then also be edited once airborne ? 

now I'm using directs. Works as well.

 

Thanks anyway for the response guys, keep up the good work :D

Thanks, can imagine its a ton of work :)
I used fsaerodata in combination with navigraph for it, works fine :)

I did a flight today with the gps a/p flying my SID's and STAR's. 

I use the aivlasoft EFB which update my GPS with the SID or STAR I want to fly.

Wait a minute... The GPS included in the DC-6 is the default one? the same that is used by the default aircrafts?

Yes, I think so.
