I don't believe that P3D uses Navigraph data. Many of the addons used with it do.

It should be automatic from the navigraph app as far as far as I️ know. I️ just open the app and look for updates.

AFAIK this is correct.

I update my AIRAC monthly and have never seen any for the sim platform itself. .only for add ons.

Best, 

You cannot update the P3D native data with Navigraph.  Check out FSAerodata.....that will do what you want but it is payware/subscription.

FSsaerodata, It's payware (one year license) and allows you to update P3D navigation data if you have a navigraph valid license.

A freeware update to the in-sim navdata can be found herer : http://www.aero.sors.fr/navaids3.html. It is updated with each monthly AIRAC cycle.

Affirmative.
I use it for many years now. Free and very convenient.
I think he also provides up to date magnetic variation bgl files

And he does deserve the one or the other donation - it's a great service he is providing to the community since years!

FSAerodate updates more though and is fully compatible with for instance P3D's map: the freeware option has some issues there.

Unlike the freeware option, fsaerodata updates all navaids and procedures (departure,arrival,approach) for all the P3d stock airports. It also updates all ARTCC/FIR frequencies. The only thing that it doesn't do is update runway and taxiway geometry, but I noticed a few days ago that this is in development:

This proposed improvement was what My T 6 attempted to do with its large collection of add-on airports.

Well, there must be an advantage of payware over freeware, else what would be the point ...

Yes, a nice idea, but, this led as well to a lot of compatibility issues with airports of other developers (freeware and payware), which made at least me disable all the modified AFCADS MT6 was providing.

Yep, I think that the real problem with the My T 6 airports is that most users didn't even realize that the airports were included in the product. That led to all kinds of conflicts when single 3rd party airports were installed, not to mention conflicts with airports included in ORBX regions.

So, do I understand correctly that fsaerodata would not update orbx or third party airports?

I believe fsAerodata also has issues with FSCommander if you use that product, I think you'll see duplicates??

I don't have fsAerodata product but I'm about to purchase so I'll know more about how it'll impact FSCommander and/or existing 3rd party airports.  I have EFB and PFPX so it's not a show stopper if it does cause issues with FSCommander, I just prefer FSCommander's more open approach and features.

It does require a Navigraph subscription in addition to fsAerodata subscription.

Cheers, Rob.

Thanks Rob. I have been thinking very seriously purchasing both Navigraph and fsAerodata.

I appreciate your willingness to test and let us know

fsaerodata will update all airports, stock and 3rd party, if you place its 3 scenery.cfg entries above all other scenery with Lorby's Add-on Manager. But, the vast majority of payware 3rd party airports are updated regularly, so their navaids and approaches are almost always up to date. So for these airports, fsaerodata will have no effect. On the other hand, the  airports found in the ORBX regions are sometimes out of date with regard to navaids and approaches. These airports will benefit from fsaerodata.

Absolutely right. Lorby's tool is a must if you want to use Fsaerodata correctly. Noteably , FSaerodata also plays well with Pro-Atc.
