  1. Hi, thanks for the response. At least now I know why my flight plans wouldn't work in some aircraft. I did convert the example flight plan from the original post ECHQ > EINN and with 7 letter coordinates it really changes the flight and you spend as much time fixing as converting. All this was to get a waypoint based flight plan to work in the Salty stable B747 which currently doesn't accept 11 letter coordinates. The Salty development B747 version does. The Example flight becomes (and route looks very different): EGHQ N0490F260 50N005W 50N005W 51N005W 51N005W 52N005W 52N005W 53N006W 53N006W 53N007W 53N007W 52N008W EINN 7 letter coordinates are just too inaccurate for flight planning and I presume the 5 letter method would be worse. So sticking to 11 letter is best. I will be downloading the development salty b747 to test this all out. Thanks for all the work your doing, little navmap is great.
  2. Latitude and Longitude Coordinates for Flight Plans in Route Description. Hi I create a lot of irregular flight plans on little navmap for the msfs community and post them on flightsim.to. I have then been using the route description copying to clipboard and inserting into simbrief. This has mostly been successful for FBW a320neo and Headwind a339neo and other aircraft. However I have had no success with the Stable Salty B747 which currently cant use 11 letter format (development version can). The Salty Stable B747 requires a 5 (or 7) letter format. In the route descriptions latitude and longitude coordinates appear in a 11 letter format I need a method to mass convert this to 7 or 5 letter format. I have not been able to get the route description to change from 11 letter to 7 or 5 letter. In Options 'UNITS' the 'coordinates' is set to 'decimal degree' which is the 7 letter format. And of course switch back to 11 letter format for other aircraft. Examples: 11 letter coordinates: 3050N12022W 4620N07805W < degrees and minutes. 7 letter coordinates: 60N045W 46N078W < degrees only. 5 letter coordinates: 5020N 5020N < NAT type. Example flight plan route: EGHQ N0490F300 5034N00520W 5039N00536W 5112N00558W 5153N00548W 5233N00541W 5247N00553W 5303N00613W 5311N00646W 5316N00712W 5314N00742W 5254N00829W EINN I have looked over the little nav map manual and not found a solution though I may have missed it. Even if someone knows an online website that could mass convert coordinates from 11 letter to 7 ir 5 letter. All that I have found require one coordinate at a time. Any help would be appreciated, thanks, Richard.
  3. Hi, I write flight plans for people and try to make them as universal as possible. Little Nav Map is still at the default AIRAC 1801 via Navigraph. Can this be universally updated in the next update to at least AIRAC 2103 which is the free AIRAC available for Flight Sim users. And keep the default current to the free AIRAC the Flight Sim users have. Navigraph subscription is now on AIRAC 2210 and MSFS just updated their AIRAC to 2210 (Oct 06 2022). (I know Navigraph subscribers can update littlenavmap through FMS). This will keep LittleNavMap at a universal level of access. Thanks, NightHawk.
  4. Little NavMap Default Directories Location Little navmap created a group of default directories under 'Little Navmap Files' which was great. I want to relocate all these directories to a different drive as I keep all my flight sim programs and files on one ssd card but I have not found out how to change or move these directories. I have just started so not concerned about losing any data just want to do this before I download the scenery data etc. Probably missing the obvious but any help would be appreciated.
