I don’t understand what I am doing wrong. Above, I’ve placed links to screenshots where I show that I’ve updated my Majestic Dash8 Q400 and then the FMS in the Majestic showing a 2017 (outdated) database.
When I try to load a flight path in to the FMS, from SimBrief, it can’t find waypoints. I presume that the reason for that is because of the outdated database. I am obviously doing something wrong and I just can’t find the answer; Perhaps because I don’t really know what to look for. I thought the purpose of the Navigraph FMS Data Manager was to update the onboard FMS in the aircraft. Is it not?
Am I barking up the completely wrong tree? How do I update my aircraft FMS to recognise current waypoints from flight plans?
please can you confirm, that you are still on the old Prepar3D v3 … is this correct? Currently the version is v5 … only just to be sure because in your FMS Data Manager screenshot you have P33 in the Majestic line, which means you are using P3D v3 … P34 = P3D v4 and P35 is P3D v5 …
For sure, we support the Majestics in all versions independet of which sim-version you use. It was only a little bit strange for me and therefore the question. I don´t have P3Dv3 installed so, I can´t really reproduce it …
So, first of all please post a screenshot of your settings page in the FMS Data Manager to look if your P3D root path is correct so far:
Again, please upload the screenshots directly here in the forum and not over your own cloud … when you delete the screenshots, this posting is useless because no one can open the external links then - so please try to upload the screenshots here directly
The paths looks good. So, can you check if the files are installed correctly now?
So please go into your P3Dv3 root path:
Here you should see a cycle_info.txt file … it´s a simple text-file. Can you open it and can you look what AIRAC version you see here?
