  1. Hi Ricardo,


    it is essential to have the same AIRAC cycle on all sides, SimBrief, EFB database, MSFS (BGL files) and aircraft FMS.


    If a change happened to either the AIRAC cycle data OR MSFS navaids data, the EFB database has to be maintained according to the following rules:


    1) When an AIRAC Cycle (Navigraph FMS data) has been updated, you also have to update the EFB database using the "Update Navdata" function.

    2) When the Navigraph MSFS navaids data has been updated (which alters the BGL files), you also have to update the EFB database using the "Update Simulator" function.



  2. Kevin,

    I don't know your server nor your other software so I cannot say whether some settings on that side could be altered.

    On EFB's side you can check the FSUIPC settings if you have the registered version. If you are running the free version of FSUIPC then the radius for traffic is fix (approx. 40 to 50NM). In EFB you have the settings for flying online ("5 EN Client.pdf", chapter 13 'Online with VATSIM or IVAO') as I already mentioned here: https://forum.aivlasoft.com/topic/5191-connecting-to-private-server/  In the Client settings you will find an additional filter for the vertical separation which is related to both flying offline and online. But overall I can say that visualizing traffic for  a radius of 650Nm is simply not possible. Please keep in mind that this is an EFB and not any Radar Surveillance program.

    Can you tell me since when the changed Arinc specifications are in effect?

    This is unknown to me, I can only tell you that the specification ARINC 424-21 (from which the above screenshot has been taken) was published in July 2016.

    Do you have information from Navigraph that they will implement the changed specifications

    This would have to be done by Jeppesen but we do not have any information about this.


  4. In short, no. EFB is using the so called Dijkstra-algorithm which is an algorithm to find the shortest path between two points in a given 'network' of nodes and edges. Any other algorithm which would consider AI-traffic would be too complex to realize.

  5. Hi Kevin,

    is this 'private server' running the same software as on the VATSIM servers?


    If it is the same software as on the regular VATSIM servers then you just have to consult the manual "5 EN Client.pdf", chapter 13 'Online with VATSIM or IVAO'. There you can find all the details about seeing traffic.

  6. Hello,

    thanks for uploading the files. It seems that two issues happened together.

    The first issue has to do with the 'Vector' path terminator for the SIDs in CYHM. Because a vector has not a specified end position, it's handled as a virtual waypoint in EFB. Virtual waypoints are not visible. This would require to explicitly select a DIR-TO to SIKBO after passing ZHM, but this is not obvious as long as SIKBO is already displayed as the next waypoint on the sidebar and in the flightlog. The second issue is the not opening or not being visible window for selecting the DIR-TO waypoint.

    Both should be fixed with next update which should take place within the next two weeks.

  7. Hi Manfred,

    thank you for uploading the support files. Unfortunately there is nothing logged in these files which is related to the situation described in your opening post. From my point of view this is not abnormal because when Windows crashes (as you described) then the application itself will not be able anymore to properly write any logfile entries. Usually a blue screen is not caused by any .NET application like EFB but from hardware drivers or similar.

  8. Hi BR (according to the forum rules, please sign your post with your real first name. Thanks)

    Depending on the data which is received by EFB the content of the labels can be defined by the user. Please see the respective chapter in the Client's manual. You also might want to see the received data by opening the "Traffic Monitor" from the Server's menu.

  9. The airport elevation is taken from two sources: either from the airport scenery, or from the AIRAC cycle in the Server's AIRAC folder, depending on the situation. For procedure based data (SID, APP) the elevation from the AIRAC cycle is used, for all other situations the elevation from the BGL-file is used.

    The elevation is not taken from the Navigraph Navdata in the community folder. Navigraph navdata from the community folder is only used for navaids such as VOR, NDB, ILS.


    Which AIRAC cycle do you use and which airport scenery?

    To which place in EFB Client do you refer in your post above?

    Is it likely that map from EFB could be brought up by inflight menu


    Could you please describe in more details what exactly you mean with "brought up"? Are you talking about bringing the Client to front, or are you talking about the feature to make EFB visible in VR?
