    Question FMC ACARS METAR

    Hey can anyone here successfully use the METAR feature in ACARS in the FMC? I used to have it working a long time ago and would like to regain that feature if at all possible.

    Hi Angelo,

    You need pmGetWeather for it to work. It's available via your PM account. Be aware it only works in Europe. On a flight from EGKK to GCTS yesterday pmWeather stopped working and then hogged all the resources of my PC causing the glass cockpit to slow down to a crawl.
