i have a little question about VOR ranges. It’s not important and this might even be considerered just as nitpicking but well I just noticed something that can maybe be fixed to improve the quality of the data (assuming that my report is correct).
I use Little Nav Map to plan the flight and i came across this :
- in my flightplan i used VOR MGA, as seen below the navigraph navdata shows a range of 40 NM
- then during the flight, to my surprise, i noticed that i could catch the VOR as far as 125 NM away (see screen below). So i assume that in the navigraph database (little_navmap_navigraph) the range is set at 40 NM, but in the BGL used by the sim (…\1104\NVX11040.bgl) the range is set at 125 NM for that same VOR.
I have no clue what is the range in the real world (and for me it would be fine with both 125 or 40 ), but i was just wondering if the data could be made so that there are no discrepancies between the BGL data and the ‘database’ data. For info, the default MSFS range for that VOR is even different at 195 NM.
I also have no clue if this is a particular case or not or if it could be replicated to many other VOR, most VOR i checked until now seemed to be fine but i haven’t really spent a lot of time on it.
As said above, really not important but maybe worth a little check one day, great product !
