    Hmmm. Clicking on the 'changes' link shows no info for the Boeing CDU and MCP. The only change listed for the GC is DH position corrected.

    What's the point of issuing new builds if we don't know what's been fixed?

    I tested them last night (737):

    • VNAV is working much better, more stable and predictable.
    • Change of heading when EXEC light is on is totally gone.
    • LVL-CHG is still eratic (but I don't think PM have looked at that yet).
    • CDU scratchpad messages still not showing on Engravity CDU.
    • Route flushing issue seems to be fixed.
    • PFD doesn't show V1, VR anymore - only shows 'NO V-SPEEEDS' on the tape.
    Interested to hear what others find ....

    Did you confirm V speeds on the CDU during the preflight, so that they appear in bold, and then on the PFD ?
    That's strange...

    Hello Jack and Nick,

    Indeed, during the pre-flight, you must confirm v1,vr and v2; they come in bold and you'll seen the information on your PFD.
    Have also tested the Boeing PM yesterday evening and it seems the bank angle, within the 3 miles before each waypoint, still remain.

    The V-speeds were definitely calculated and displayed in the CDU. What do you mean by confirm the V speeds? - do you mean visually confirm they are there, or is there a CDU step to do that?

    thanks

    On the 737 you need to press the corresponding lsk to confirm the v speeds.

    i notice the speed bug only drops down automatically on the pfd around five miles from the next waypoint that has a lower speed setting, so i never seem to hit the right speeds at the right waypoint.

    might be my skills with the speedbrake but i never achieve 250 crossing through ten thousand.

    does everyone else see their toc and tod marks in the nd?..mine seems missing.

    @pm....these threads/pages sound like demands but really they are only conversation.

    i am much happier now. the vnav des profile seems to have been changed to a flatter grade and engines dont spool to 60% during descent.

    has the n1 takeoff spool been fixed?...it was very slow.

    there must be some heavy maths going on in these little pm programs.

    thanks pm!

    Ok thanks - I've learned something. Haven't had to do that until these recent versions.
