I show the data as it is presented in the source.

Hi Alex!

I just wanted to clarify:

1)the range of nav aids is taken from navigraph (if it is active)?

2)ILS beam width for visual display only?

Yes for VOR.
Sort of for NDB. There it is calculated based on the NDB type (H, HH, Compass Locator, ...).
Range is not available in Navigraph for ILS where I use a fixed value of 27 NM. X-Plane and FSX/P3D provide a range but I'm not sure if this makes sense.

Beam width is provided in FSX/P3D only and there are really ILS with different values (look at stock ENHF). You can also see this while flying as far as I remember. Navigraph and X-Plane do not provide this value and I use a fixed width for drawing only.

Hope this is not too confusing.🙃
