  1. Alex, I am sorry but I am not sure what to look for and where to find it. If you can give me a hint I can see if I can dig it up. Regards, Rolf
  2. Alex, it appears that it uses its own flight format system. Universal 1E FMS. Someone (Traveler Pilot) has been working on an FPR converter that will allow flight plans to be imported into the Q400. It is still in beta I believe. I hope this is helpful. thanks for your interest. Regards, Rolf
  3. Alex, i am away from my computer but will get back to you once I did some more research. Thanks for your interest. Rolf
  4. Hi all, with the recent improvements in flightplan exporting capabilities, is it now possible to export flight plans to non-gps systems such as the Majestic Q400. If so, how. Your help will be appreciated. Thank you. Rolf
  5. Alex, the mountains were missing and you are right. I was flying in New Zealand, Northern Norway and Iceland. Thanks for the prompt response and this great product. Rolf
  6. At the bottom of the elevation profile I used to get a reflection of mountainous terrain to reflect safe altitudes. It no longer appears. Is there anything I forgot to do? Thank you., Rolf
  7. Hi Thomas, I was thinking about being able to use this in Little Navmap (LNM). I can't use LNM with the Majestic Q400. I can not find a GPS option instead of the FMS in the Q400. However were I to use Flightsim commander it wouldl automatically bring the plane from the point of interception of the ILS approach at 3000 ft to ground level at touch down. This issue is not a big deal since I would be landing the plane from the point of interception anyway however I thought I would throw it out there. For the purists who say I should learn all about the Flight Management System I agree, however that is my next challenge. Kindest regards, Rolf
  8. Thank you for a great product. I have yet to figure out how to have the altitude change can be triggered to descend when on an ILS approach to correspond with the approach. I have taken the Altitude Hold button off and that just causes the plane to loose altitude but without control. Thank you. Rolf
  9. Hi Alex, CYSJ is a Simaddons Airport and the "Adowe" Fix is about 20 nm east of the airport in the Bay of Fundy. The "Fixes" can be seen in the Flightsim Commander 9.6 map. I tried attaching a picture of that item without any luck. I look forward to the next revision but no hurry on my part. Thanks again. Rolf
  10. Hello again! I recently flew from Toronto CYTZ to Saint John N.B. CYSJ. Due to wind conditions I needed to land on Rwy 32. Typically I would aim for Adowe > Dugvo > Gablo and that would get me to Rwy 32. The heading of 320 would be set and all I need to concern myself would be the speed and altitude until I had the airport in sight. In FSC 9.6 they show Adowe as a fix on the map along with other fixes to get me to 32. I have not been able to see any such fixes on the LNM map although Adowe is identified as a transition point for rwy 32 on the approach information for the destination airport in this case CYSJ. I thought I looked everywhere, but then who knows. Maybe I am missing something. Kindest regards, Rolf
  11. Alex The plan in question is not a big deal for me. But it would be neat to find out what causes this so I can avoid this in the future. It may be as simple as placing a wrong waypoint, but then what do I know. I have to say that I really like Little Navmap. I have a number of favorite planes and so far all, other than the Majestic Q 400, work with LNM. Thank you for a great product and your help. Rolf
  12. Hi Alex, Here is the flight plan. EDHK N0320F240 DCT MIC DCT ROSOK DCT 5406N01322E DCT EU04 DCT TEBLU DCT KRT DCT GOMED DCT UMKK I tried other flight plans but they appear to work fine. After trying one that works and then changing it to the one above, it did not crash. If I load the flightplan from start it will disappear from the desktop as it finishes loading. I located a youtube video that deals with a similar issue. It might be of intererst. My path to flight plans is as follows: Thanks for your help. Rolf C:\Users\Rolf\Documents\Prepar3D v3 Files Sorry about the video appearing in my reply. I just wanted to send the link to the video. Rolf
