Hi Bryan,


You may have copied navdata to the wrong location. I suggest

Make sure X-Plane is not running.

Run … your X-Plane 11\X-Plane 11 Installer.exe with Update X-Plane option to check installed files and restore file structure.

In FMS Data Manager, check you are running latest Version . If not please download and install FMS Data Manager.

In FMS Data Manager Settings, check your X-Plane 11 path is correct, by navigating to X-Plane.exe.

In Addon Mappings, delete entry X-Plane 11 (11.50+).

Press Scan. Are you now seeing entry X-Plane 11 (11.50+) ?

If yes, in Addon List please select X-Plane 11 (11.50+) and Update.
