AT 72 FMS improvements

Recommended Posts

Is Carenado AT 72 FMS better than the AT 42 one?

Looking at videos, it appears that AT 72 FMS is more complete (exemple: support airways entries instead of only waipoints)

Does it has the same problem that pilot should enter the plan as follow:

Departure

Approach

Arrival

Enroute (airways/waipoints)

to avoid unnecessary problems.

In a word, is AT 72 FMS better and if it is the case, why didn't they retrofitted it to the ATR 42

I just installed in P5D and the FMS doesn't work at all. It's stuck on "LOADING DATABASE". The rest of the aircraft seems to work fine.

 

***STOP PRESS***

 

Problem fixed by editing dll.xml - the nav database updated properly and is working.

About the only thing this FMS does is allow you to create a flight plan and then fly along it. You can create a flight plan using airways, however once you get going, the flight plan doesn't update as you move along. In other words, the TO waypoint doesn't sequence in the LEGS page. The PERF pages show the fuel flow, but not the fuel used, and there is still that 380 lbs or kgs of APU fuel that has been in every FMS since they started making them. It never changes and doesn't do anything.

Christopher, Hi

How did you installed in P5D?  Yesterday I purchased and spent many hours. I can install in P3Dv5  but when  I start P3D, A72 500  is not appearing  in  "Vehicle"  list.

Can you help me?
