  1. Hi there, please, I would like to know informations about how to start using for the very first time(a tutorial maybe, would be great) the CO ROUTE inside the FMC of the B737NGX(PMDG/FSX Deluxe SP1/2). How to? Where should I start? What do I need? So on.... Thank you all!!!! :smile:
  2. Can someone advise me how to bring up the FMC INIT screen in X-Plane 11? All the FMC tutorials start out with hitting that button to initialize new settings. X-Plane has an official video showing the new layout. In the video there are apparently clicks to get there, but no narrative of what was clicked. This is the video from XPlaneOfficial: https://youtu.be/YfX6R4V3V_c?t=160 As you can see in the video he goes to a screen that looks like the first image below. I try to follow the steps exact, but I get a different screen. The video goes to a screen where that has "<ROUTE MENU PERF INIT>" in the menu. That is the screen that I can't get to. The closest I can get it the screen that has "<ROUTE MENU VNAV>" in the menu. The FMC in the Video: The FMC in my screen: All the tutorial and videos on the FMC starts out by telling the user to click on the INIT button to start the programming. So, at present, I'm having the same problem with all the references to using the FMC that I'm having with this, which would most likely be resolved by being able to get to the screen that is in the Official Video. Thanks in advance for any suggestions or comments! -- L. James -- L. D. James ljames@apollo3.com www.apollo3.com/~ljames
  3. Hi all, I don't know what is the problem, I cannot load the data from my FMC, when I input the departure airport like VHHH, it said there is not in data base I have the updated AIRAC1701, and I can't even load all my saved flight as well Can somebody help me solve this problem? Thanks Anthony Yuen

    FMC nav data

    Using Prepard 3d and PDGM B777 and Navigraph to update the FMC with the latest NAV info. but its still stuck with a 2013 revision in the FMC and Navigraph dosnt look to be up dating to REV-1610 the current version. am i missing a link some where thanks Stephen Bottom
  5. So, I'm new to the PMDG 737 and have been trying to follow the manual but have already hit a snag. In the manual to go from cold and dark it says to use the FMC and load the cold and dark state. I do so, and get the green initialization bar at the top of the screen, but the FMC doesn't come back. It stays blank and I can't use it afterwards. What could be wrong here? Thanks -- Alexander
  6. Hi ! I would like to know if there were any plan to upgrade the FMC to the 11.0 version ? In my company all the planes have just been upgraded to this version. Any info on this ? Thanks a lot Florent
  7. Good day! I recently bought the NGX 737 and I love it! I have 2 questions regarding it. 1 - Auto Pilot. I Came from using the stock 737 in FSX so I dont know what the LNAV AND VNAV do...I see everyone uses it in ILS landings but Im using to using VLOC and APP. Somotimes I click LNAV AND VNAV and i dont get a green light saying its been activated...so, how do I use auto pilot for ILS landings (NOT AUTO LAND) in the NGX 737? On a side note...where is the NAV/GPS switch so i can pick which one to use? 2 - FMC.....All i know is to set fuel, ground connections and a few other things like putting in the air port but i dont know the waypoint part since I never have any....I need to know how to use the FMC so it can tell me when to put my flaps and speed and all that.... Please send a link of a video or anything useful that teaches this. Its almost impossible to have a real flight without it. PLEASE give me a good starter flight plan for this so I can learn and last thing, SIDS, I dont even know where to find mine or what it is. Thank you In advance Mirakledba
  8. Well,I use PMDG 777-300ER and everything was fine yesterday. I made a flight from LTBA to KJFK without any issues. Today, when i try to enter the cost index to FMC for another flight, FMC just freezed. I closed and restarted the game and tried to request that informations instead of entering manually. This time, when i clicked accept button, all entries became invisible. They just turned to blanks. I couldn't see any indent for any attribute. I even tried my last flight which i flied yesterday and all that FMC things were operating as normal, i get the freezing problem. Btw, all VC works without a problem, only FMC freezes. I also tried to delete the aircraft and reinstalled it. Nothing has changed. I amthinking of deleting the whole game and reinstall it again tho. If it wont help, then i will be done and not waste any more time on this.
  9. hi, i am flying the Do228, AC690 and (Alabeo) DA-42. At least the Do228 has a basic FMC, the DA-42 has a G1000. I installed the latest Navigraph update for Carenado (filename "carenado_1712.exe"). I did that for the first time. However, the FMC and the Garmin does still show old data. Navigraph data has been installed into the following folder: "F:\Prepar3D v4\CarenadoNavigraph" How to get it working, that FMC/GPS shows the new airac data? thanks, regards
  10. Happy Holidays everyone, I am enjoying my holiday today as I bought 2 new airports for my sim. I am traveling a real world route with FSCaptain from KMSP to KSFO. I can not figure out why FMC is not calculating altitude so that I can engage it. My Airac is 1712 Here is route KMSP/30L SCHEP9 ONL DCT NUXRO DCT VOAXA Q136 OAL DCT INYOE DYAMD3 KSFO/10L (or try 28L) I am reading the FCOM2 11.30.X-11.42.X (going up and down the pdf, Just can't figure out on what is happening). Any suggestions on what is happening (I have searched the avsim forums for this but can not find an answer that I am looking for). Can someone point me in a direction on how to solve this. Thanks Update: Around DYAMD - FMC calculates T/D and right about here I am able to activate VNAV for descent. Quite confused why it isn't working before and then it works

  12. hi , Before all THE PMDG 747-V3 is amazing !!!. Now the problem : Why does not heve any sid or star in the fmc for LLBG AIRPORT Please your help. Thanks.
  13. Hi Kyle or Ryan, I noticed that the Cost Index gives different ECON speeds depending on engine variant. PW CI90 equals GE/RR CI180, more or less. I thought it was more an FMC variant problematic (if any) than an engine one... Curious about that. By the way, I would guess giving the real world data you may find around that the correct data is the PW one. Cheers, Alex
  14. Hi, lately it happens that in some flights the airplane has excessive fuel consumption. When I takeoff, I have 12000kg of estimated fuel on destination. But after taking off, that number drops 0,1kg every 4 or 5 minutes. I use PFPX, I load the winds to the legs page via the uplink, so I don´t know what could be wrong. Thanks,
  16. If I fly with the PMDG 737-800 (P3D version) then all displays are sometimes black. Another time then the both FMC's completely stuck and the displays works correct. Another time, everything works fine. Is this a known problem? Martien Roelofs
  17. I'm running the PMDG 737NGX with P3D V4, Active Sky, and Navigraph Data. Just wondering what is the best way to create flight plan routes and load the route into the FMC? I know there are several software programs out there that do this, just wondering what others are using and what would work best with the PMDG FMC. Thanks John Swanson
  18. I've created a flight plan from VHHH to ZGGG, and I've setup the fmc using the data as shown in the screenshot. However, why in the LEGS page, the speed isn't activated and in the PROG page, the econ page is set to 215? I didn't enter this number. FMC settings As you see in the LEGS, waypoint PORPA will be using 215/6000 instead of 250/6000
  19. I installed the latest AIRAC cycle 1613 from Navigraph a few days and I now have no NAVDATA for Runway 25R at KLAX. If I set up a flight plan in the Phenom 300 or the PMDG 737NGX (only ones tried so far), there is no ILS data for Runway 25R. It just shows 25R (versus ILS 25R) or it doesn't show up at all as a runway available to land. Just wondering if others are seeing this. I know for a fact the data was in the last cycle as I used it frequently to land at KLAX. That's upsetting the data was lost in the new cycle. Does anyone know the developer at Navigraph and put some pressure on him to put it back? I can contact him too but want to get a verification first. Best regards, Jim
