    MCDU - Navdata

    Since one Year we are waiting for an update regarding MCDU-navdata.
    The MCDU-Software is still not reading the terminal approach data from the appdata.txt file.
    Has the CDU Software for Boing the same problems? To fly only with the normal STAR procedure is not the best way. Well, to install it each time manual, that is to much work , because all items are standing already and correct in the appdata.txt file.
    Can we expect an update in the near future? Would be very nice - many peaple waiting for that!!

    BTW, I know this falls somewhat off-topic, but how do you guys program a Missed Approach Procedure in the MCDU?
    I mean, I think you can't add any fixes or waypoints AFTER the destination airport, right?
    Thanks!

    Luis, I think you are right.
