Nav Data Out of Date

Recommended Posts

Just transferred to Win 10 and P3dv4.  A handful for me with Win 10 for the first time.  The Apps are driving me crazy.  I installed the NGX for my first aircraft.  Everything went fine and the graphics are great. Only one problem with the NGX, and its more of an irritant than anything else.  I installed the latest Navigraph FMS download and the correct dates are reflected on the CPU ident page, but I keep getting the Nav Data Out of Date message.  I have re-downloaded Navigraph; with no change.  Seems like I had this problem years ago, but can't remember how to correct it.  Any advise?

The default install location the FMS Data Manager uses is incorrect. Redirect the install to <Your Install drive>:PREPAR3D\PMDG. This should correct the problem.

Be sure your simulator date is within the dates for the navdata cycle.

Not quite right Jose.  If the data were installed to the incorrect location then the CDU would not reflect the correct date.  Also, you provided the incorrect path which should simply be the P3D root folder.  The FMS Data Manager knows which subfolders to use.

Sorry, did not intend to mislead anyone on this forum Dan is correct, the folder for the airac updates for PMDG products is the root p3d folder. In my case though, the data manager did not find this automatically. Again I apologize for the mis-information.

Me too, although the automatic selection looked correct I had to manually set it to get it to work too. Cheers.

Well, as soon as I read the suggestion to make sure the simulator date was within the dates for the Navdata cycle, I remembered how I fixed the problem years ago.  Normally, I always reset the time to the sim time upon setting up the flight; however,  I just wanted to see what the P3D summer looked like and hit Summer.  This set it out of the Navadata cycle and hence the problem. So, problem resolved.  Thanks, Mike Nicholson
