LS button to capture glide not working..Help Please

Recommended Posts

I am using the FBW stable version.  I used to on occasion not have the ILS show when I hit LS on certain approaches.  Now it doesn't show on any approach.

I am pre-setting my flight routes and approach on world map (Don't have to program in MCDU) so when I got down to low enough altitude and near airport I could hit LS and the ILS would display.  I would then hit approach on final.  It would capture glide and I would have smooth landing.

Now the GS is showing in ready to arm state but it is not capturing and the ILS is not displaying.  And the approach is not always capturing GS so I have to manually (not pretty) approach the plane.  Anything change with FBW or is it an Asobo issue?

Thanks

Not sure if it's a world map thing or an airports thing but sometimes the ils frequency doesn't get into the FMS. Hit the nav/rad button on the keypad after you have loaded the plan. If the ils freq didn't load  then the appropriate data  block will be empty. At least you won't be surprised on approach and you can always enter it manually at this point.
