Hi folks - apologies in advance because I’m sure that this has been covered elsewhere, but I’ve not been able to find it and I’m at the “my head is about to explode” stage.
If I pop onto the TBM 930 in MSFS and bring up the list of departures for NZNS I see the correct list (a good “sanity check” is to verify that the last one is a ZULU2 departure). I don’t know if this is because it’s correctly updated from Navigraph or if the sim just shipped with a relatively up-to-date database; doesn’t matter - the only important thing is that it’s showing what it should show - so the correct data exists somewhere.
Different story on X-Plane; I installed the FMS manager - it did a scan - found the installation - downloaded an approx 16MB file - decompressed that into several thousand files - and popped them into the C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\X-Plane 11\Custom Data\CIFP folder - where I can see that they all have a date of 9th November 2020. Perfect.
The problem I have is that when I crank up either the TBM 900 or C172-G1000 in X-Plane - start at NZNS - bring up departure options - I get 14 options but they’re not current ie “no ZULU2 departure”.
I’m struggling to find how to read what the G1000 in any sim thinks is the database date; the TMB 900 in X-Plane still shows it as being about 4 years old - and other G1000 MFD appear to come on instantly and don’t show the init screen - which it the only place I’ve seen database dates (I can’t find a way to get to them via the buttons).
Could someone please point me in the right direction? All I really want to achieve is have current New Zealand departures available to me in the HotStart TBM 900 under X-Plane.
