    flight plan conversion

    Hi Enrico,

    when I prepare a flight plan with "FS Navigator 4.6", 1 or 2 characters of
    the waypoints are truncated in CDU and ND.

    I checked the support forum and found the problem in some postings.

    Your advice is to load the plan in FS and save it again before loding into
    CDU.
    I tried it but still some character is missing.
    If the waypoint is 5 character than 1 is missing. (Example: DODIL is ODIL)
    If it is a VOR or a NDB than the first character is missing but therefore the
    system add XX (Example: VOR is MAH, than it is changed to XXAH

    If I plan the flight in FS2004 only than it is ok.

    Beside this I found another problem. I use FS2004 in German version. If you
    load or save a flight plan the standard path is C:\dokumente und
    Einstellungen\Username\Eigene Dateien\Flight Simulator-Dateien\
    This path you can not change in the FS settings (I asked Microsoft). In the
    english version of FS2004 it is the same path but instead of ...\Flight
    Simulator-Dateien it is
    FSPlans.

    The CDU seems to look into the FSPLAN-path and load the newest plan.
    I could not find an entry in the CDU.ini where I can change
    the path to the german version.

    Means even when I save the produced flight plan in FS I have to copy the
    PLN-file into the path ....\fsplans before I can load into CDU.

    Hope you can help.

    Regards

    Thomas

    Hi Thomas,
    du musst nur den Pfad freigeben als FSPlans, sonst nichts, siehe Bild. (Ist
    auch so beschrieben)

    flight plan conversion

    Hi Thomas,

    pls. let me reply in english to give everybody the posibility to understand.

    First of all thank you very much for your advise.
    I changed the network filename as you recommended and it works.

    But still there is the problem with the conversion of the flight plan when I
    use Flight Navigator 4.6

    Do you have a solution for this problem as well ?

    Thanks

    Thomas

    Re: flight plan conversion

    Hi,

    the format of FS is a bit different from the one generated
    by FS Navigator, there are two leading characters in front
    of every waypoint that I can't include.

    Can you please send me the offending flight plan to
    support@projectmagenta.com so I take another look at it?

    Ciao

    Enrico
