FMS Data not updating Xplane 11. Mac

Post by reynoldseric » Sat Jun 22, 2019 10:56 pm

My goal is to have a current GNS430 in the Xplane 11 GA aircraft that I use.
Latest OS

Subscribed to Navigraph.
Downloaded FMS Data manager.
Added path to X-plane 11in settings
Added a listing for the "X-plane GNS430, FF757/767,777..etc"
Updated to the current revision. 1907 rev 1
Confirmed a file had been created and filled with data in the X-plane/Custom Data/GNS430 folder
Started X-plane 11. Confirmed aircraft had no updated data bases on GNS430
Repeated steps 3 times. Still no luck

What am I missing?

The Default X-Plane 11 GPS's and FMS use the same addon navdata as X-Plane 11 itself (it's the one listed as X-Plane 11 - native**) and NOT the one listed as "X-plane GNS430, FF757/767,777..etc"!!

Ok thank you . I did look at that file but it had all exec. file in it. I didn't think it would work with Mac.

You sure you were looking at the correct file?? Double check which addon your downloading.
There are NO .exe files in xplane11_native_1907.zip

I have the new file now. Will verify if successful. No idea where the exec files came from because I deleted them all.

Thanks
