No DME in CJ4

Recommended Posts

When i try to fly direct to a VOR expect to see DME ...... but nothing doing ..... this is using latest WT mod??? (visited Github in hope of being able to put the question to them, but couldn't find a contact link)

 

This a message for any Moderator who happens to be passing: perhaps when you decide my post has to gain the site's approval before posting, it'd be basic good manners to tell me what infraction I've committed so I can avoid it next time ....  thanks

FYI Not all VOR have DME. But in any case If you choose DIRECT TO in FMC page and dial desired VOR id you will see distance. I use the same approach in real life using GNS430W. The advantage of using GPS is you no longer getting slant distance, but actual distance between aircraft and navaid. 

By the way WT has discord channel were you can can talk to them directly. They posted link here's omehwre before

If I select Nav1 and tune in an in-range VOR/DME in the CJ4 (with latest WT mod) I do get the DME info as shown below (BRK at 9.8NM). This pic was taken just sitting on the runway at KCOS without a loaded flight plan.
