waypoint lat lon shows numbers instead of name (resolved)

Recommended Posts

 

X-plane 11.30 NAVDAT Current Jan 2019;

Current database from navigraph installed and fixes displayed are in x-plane default data.

we still see lat lon degrees instead of waypoint/airport name

product  RXP G530 master v 2.4.6.0.

Is there another way to get the waypoint ICAO identifiers as the x-plane sdk only gives the lat lon from the RXP G530 plugin?

Hi,

I guess you are referring to the "Auto-Update Simulator GPS Waypoints" option?

Unfortunately, the X-Plane SDK limits plugin to lat/lon only and there is no way to export ICAO as well. We mitigate this a little in trying to match as much waypoints as possible with the X-Plane database so that we can export waypoints by name, instead of by pos (user waypoints).

Professional customers have access to a private set of datarefs to directly get the actual waypoints which they can further use to display on custom EFIS screens though.

Could you point me it the direction to upgrade to commercial use. 

Also does the pro version allow you to reload plugins in x-plane

Further following up on this: our next update (GTN and GNS V2) will work fine with 'Reload Plugins'. Thank you for bringing our attention to this.
