    Navigraph update but CDU doesn't show new dates

    I've installed the 0901 Navigraph files for the CDU but when I load the CDU it only shows dates up to 14 Jan which is the last day of the 0813 cycle.

    Which file contains the dates used by the CDU? Has anyone else had a problem with this cycle?

    Navigraph 0901

    hello ray.....
    i installed the 0901 cycle yesterday without any difficulty. it's showing Jan15 -Feb11/09.
    the installer should make a backup copy of your existing files, so try a re-install. we all know there's nothing more unpredictable than computers.
    if no joy, try navigraph support, they are excellent.....
    good luck and have a great day...
    rgds ... ian

    Hi Ian,

    When you say "the installer" what installer is that? The Navigraph instructions say to extract all files to the CDU parent folder and that is what I've done.

    Is that what you did?

    I've also tried placing them directly in the CDU\Data folder but I still can't see Jan 15 - Feb 11 in the CDU.

    You are using Project Magenta. I know Ian isn't -- he's probably using the PMDG data set -- right, Ian?

    Seems that whoever built the 0901 files for PM forgot to update the internal version and date info. I've not idea where or how that's encoded in the PM format. The only thing you can do is report the discrepancy to Navigraph as Ian suggests.

    I'm still on 0813. No time to fly in the last few weeks in any case, and probably not for a few more yet, so it won't affect me! But you need to point it out, please, so they don't forget next time!

    Regards

    Pete

    Ray, which CDU / Product are you installing the Airac for? Normally you only specify the Flight Simulator directory and the installer program does the rest.

    Hi Pete,

    That would explain the problem hopefully. I have reported the problem to Navigraph so hopefully they'll take a look at it.

    The 0901 cycle is causing the CDU to crash when I enter the last segment of this plan - VEBIT T50 ROTOS UZ669 MILPA UN869 RUSIK. I'll try it with 0813.

    When I hear from Navigraph I'll post here.

    Fritz,

    The Boeing CDU. PM has its own installation procedure as you're probably aware. Nothing goes in the FS folder. I don't use any installer, PM does it itself.

    Oops sorry, jumped the gun there

    hi ray...
    sorry i automatically assumed that all the navigraph navdata downloads had the built in installer.
    pete is quite correct, i am using the PMDG downloads which auto install.
    however, if you have contacted navigraph, you will find their support very good. i have had a couple of exchanges with them in the past and they have always done the biz quickly.
    sorry about the misunderstanding...good luck... ian

    I did the same assumption as Ian. All the installs I used installed in the MSFS folder. I'm not using PM.

    Iv'e installed 0901 on Wilco/FT and had no problems there. Maybe it is just the PM's 0901 package.

    Ian / Fritz,

    No worries. There's so many combos it's easy to make assumptions.

    There's been quite a few posts on Navigraph support regarding this cycle so it does rather suggest there may have been a cock-up (technical term).

    No reply so far.
