Importing flight plans? (resolved)

Recommended Posts

Is there any way to import a flight plan from SimBrief or Navigraph?  Thanks!

From Navigraph, it seems like the answer is "no" but I can use LittleNav Map so that's fine.  However, the Import button does not show up.  It seems like this is a common problem and I've read many threads and the solution seems to be different all the time.

I have the C:\ProgramData\Garmin\Trainers\Databases\FPLN folder set up.  This folder only contains the KSLE_KSLE.gfp and user.wpt files.  I start up XP, load up the GTN 750, go to Flight Plan, Menu, Catalog, Menu, and there is not Import button, just Delete All and Delete Pending.

For which there are common answers and solutions too!

You might want to review you've got the right location in review the RXP log files (see RXP User's Manual for file/path).

If the GTN plugin log file is indicating the expected folder, then you'll know where to put the files into. Is there any such entry in the file?

I followed the instructions as per the manual, no go.  I looked at other suggestions, still didn't work.  Re-installed the whole thing (smoother this time and no license issues, must've been a corrupted installer), followed the instructions as per the manual, worked the first time.

As Homer Simpson would say -- D'oh!!

You might want to follow the instructions I'm giving you instead?

Yes, the files were in the correct folder and it did not work.  After the re-install, the same files in the same folder worked.

I have found that the FPLN folder often gets recreated and if this folder is present it becomes the default over the shortcut.  I have made a script that runs to delete the FPLN folder automatically,

This is interesting a find and this makes me wondering. We'll add this to the list of things to cross-check and if we're finding a reason for this in the trainer, we'll certainly let you know. Thank you.
