    FCOM in NG3

    Hello, The FCOM provided with NGX is getting increasingly out of date. Stall and overspeed warnings are checked nowadays (I've seen newer FCOMs and all of them feature this) This used to be done before they completely remade the procedures 2005 but was removed and later was added again. The WLAN switch is not documented in the FCOM. Yes, it might be a dummy switch but still, for the sake of simulation it would be nice if this would be covered somewhere. A new supplementary procedure has been added for checking the fuel shutoff valves. There's more I think but I can't remember it right now. Will NG3 feature a new FCOM? I realise this is completely up to Boeing but if possible, I think a new FCOM is warranted. Best regards Johan Nordqvist

    WLAN switch

    Hello, Do you normally check that the WLAN switch is guarded on the aft overhead during preliminary preflight? My intuition tells me it is, but what do the real life 737 pilots say? Best regards Johan Nordqvist

    Brake Categories

    From Ryan in that thread: He's referring to the steel/carbon option. This is not the brake category. See https://www.pprune.org/tech-log/222784-boeing-737-brakes.html for more information.

    Brake Categories

    Hello! What brake categories are the NGX using for each aircraft model? I found this topic, but it didn't doesn't really answer the question at hand.

    User waypoints menu

    Any thoughts?
  9. Hello, I'm wondering if the user waypoint menu is fully modelled in the GNS430? The reason I'm asking is that I cannot create any user waypoints using the GNS430. I'm able to do it using the GNS430 simulator provided by Garmin but not in the Mindstar GNS430. I've been unable to do so on Windows 7, 8 & 10.
  10. Thank you for your support! :smile:
  11. Applied the latest updates from Windows Update but the problem persists. Any ideas what to do next? For clarification, I'm using the default C172 with the provided GNS setup to reduce any interfering addons, but like I stated above the problem persists.
  12. Interesting, if I browse the nearest NDB:s NV shows up. If I highlight it and press the Direct button, I'm able to get the list of duplicates. But via the FPL menu it never loads. Update: I tried switching to the Microsoft database instead of RealNav but it still won't load. I've also tried uninstalling the GNS430/GNS530 and then reinstalling it again but the problem persists. I've tried the default C172 with the panel setup provided by Mindstar, however the problem persists there as well. I really have no clue as to what else I can do...
  13. Okay thank you. Then at least I know there's a ghost to chase.
  14. Hello, I'm having problems loading a Swedish NDB called "NV". If I try to load it, I get the "Duplicate Waypoints" window, however it just keeps loading. No list of choices appears. If I try to load another Swedish NDB called VNA, I get the list without any problems. I'm using the latest version available as of today. (I downloaded and installed the one available at www.mindstaravaiation.com just an hour ago or so) I ran the installer as administrator and made sure all access rights were correct. After that I reinstalled the latest RealNav AIRAC, however despite my efforts it still get's stuck. I'm convinced it's something with my system that's causing it but just in case, could anyone try to load an aircraft at the airport Umea (ESNU) and then try to load the NDB called "NV" (which is located close to the airport ESNV) ? I just want to know for sure that it is my system and not a bug so I'm not chasing ghosts.

    Good 3rd party soundset for the NGX?

    The NGX is the ONLY addon that I've ever had where I can't complain about the sounds and trust me I am INSANELY difficult to satisfy when it comes to sounds. The only thing that would be better than the sounds provided by PMDG, is the real aircraft.
