    You need to go here, http://www2.navigraph.com/www/default.asp , to get your nav data for the cdu. PM doesn't post any updates anymore.

    I know that, .....but the new PM builds and the new Navdata are bugged as decribed in many posts here...my question is..if one of us has a combination of old builds and navdata that work well please tell everybody so that we can revert to these in the meantime..

    When I get back in the sim today I will relist the builds I am using. I am going to try the new beta on the PM website for navdata.

    Sorry for assuming you didn't know about the Navigraph site. I'm afraid I can't help you since I am running the most current Boeing PM builds and Navigraph data with no errors or bugs noticed. I didn't keep any of my previous builds. Hopely some else can help you out.

    Good luck.

    Lyle
    Thanks.
    Can you be more precise as to the number of the "newest" PM builds that you use.
    These are the latest
    CDU390
    MCP420
    Gc450
    PMCDUNAV 0705 (navigraph)
    PMGCNAV 0705 (navigraph)


    I am more interested by the ones you use if they work without problems
    tell us more...pleaseeeeeee.

    And Bob...tell us about yours too..
    Cheers

    I'm at work now but will check tonight and give all my software version numbers. It'll be in about 6 hours. So far I am not having any of the problems I've seen here.

    Ok, here is WHAT I had...

    CDU = 388
    MCP = 418
    GC = 448

    Everything works great. Now since it was brought, up I see there is a newer version so I downloaded all 3 and now my cdu is completely corrupt and unuseable. I tried going back to 388 but no help. LSK's L1, L6 and R6 do not respond anymore. I have already sent a plea of help to Peter Cos just incase it's a hardware fasilure but that would be quite coincidental. What a wheelbarrow full of crap this was. I had a major fly-in this weekend to boot. If PM is going charge as much as they do for their software you'd think by now they would have a decent product, especially if they are shooting for the bigger customer's satisfaction.

    This hobby is driving me to drink.......... MORE!

    Sorry to hear you are having these problems.

    Seems I mentioned something about PM to this effect a few weeks back.

    Maybe i'm better off that they don't offer a 727 suite.
