Vertx DA62 Missing waypoints

Recommended Posts

I recently bought the Vertx DA62, and I have to say, it is quite amazing, I am really loving it. One problem I am having is missing waypoints. I have installed to most recent nav data to my sim, yet it seems that there are missing waypoints that I can't type into the G1000. For example, when I try to type in the waypoint ZONSU, I type in ZON, but can't get anything other than ZONAL. I'm not sure if these waypoints are no accepted in the G1000, or my sim is broken. My sim data should be up to date.

Aircraft version is 1.053 on P3D v4.4

Thanks for the Help

It's a VFR waypoint. Wich is not accepted in G1000.

Note: this is just my own conclusion because ive noticed it myself.

Currently, the Vertx DA62 G1000 only accepts the waypoints included in the default P3D database, which is from year 2007, so quite old indeed. That will probably change in the future, by using an updatable monthly database from Navigraph, as announced by Vertx.

@Maffou how did you update the nav data in your sim?

I use fsaerodata, If the waypoint is in the sim, the G1000 should pick it up. I'll try tonight.

For the curious, this feature in the salt flats is ZONSU

Sojourned is right. I use FsAerodata update and was able to set a direct to waypoint ZONSU.
