    Approach Plate DA/DH for LOWW??

    Hi, Appreciate the answer and clarification. Sorry for the dumb question but the approach plate as depicted in EFB threw me. For me it was not immediately obvious the bold number in the table was the runway number especially when the runway number is given at the top of the approach plate window and having the MDA and RVR values in the same box is not the typical convention. Nonetheless I will read the manual in more detail. I found and read the relevant section regarding the minima and so I will have a go at customizing the values as you suggested. Thanks
  2. Hello, I am using the trial version of EFB v2 with P3Dv3.4 and using the default, included 1802 cycle. I have the PMDG 747-400 loaded which is a Cat D aircraft. When I create a flight plan from ENGM to LOWW and select a RNAV (LNAV/VNAV) 34 approach for LOWW, I see the Approach plate shown at the bottom of the screen. Info displayed for this approach within EFB looks odd as the DA is shown to be 34ft. I am not sure this is correct. It should be 834ft according to Austro Controls charts. See attached for the EFB display and the Austro Control chart from Feb 2017. Note: If I look at the corresponding ILS 34 approach it also shows 34ft also as the DA within EFB while Austro Control shows the same approach to be 804ft. Field elevation of this runway is 584ft. So is the approach data within 1802 cycle incorrect or is this an EFB related problem with showing incorrect DA/DHs? Can someone confirm my observations for this airport/runway? Regards LO_AD_2_LOWW_24-6-9-4_en.pdf

    AI Traffic Not Seen

    Hi Jonas, Thx for the pointer. Yes you are correct. My ENGM Configurator tool was missing when I installed the scenery for some reason so I had overlooked it and the option to turn static aircraft on was enabled. I have turned this off and the actual view was in snych with EFB. Thanks for that. Regards Mark

    AI Traffic Not Seen

    Hello, I am seeing similar problems of only seeing limited AI traffic displayed on the client with sim generated traffic in P3Dv4.3. At Oslo (ENGM, Aerosoft) I have 3 aircraft sitting at the same terminal within 300m of my user aircraft positioned at Gate 49 (AI occupying Gates 38, 39 & 42) but the Client does not depict these aircraft at all. On the Traffic Monitor, only 2 aircraft are listed that are on the ground but they are positioned at another terminal farther away from my aircraft. Strange! I have not changed the default settings of -5000-5000 within EFB v2 for the AI altitude limits. I am hoping the bug found and subsequent fix by Urs will resolve this. Regards Mark

    Alternates - enroute and destination?

    Hi Oskar, I understand your point and thanks for explaining the rationale for this not being in v2. The counter argument is that we are working with the simulator, so for those of us practicing normal and abnormal procedures/ops, diversion planning is part of that learning curve. When Simbrief is able to generate alternates etc it would be nice to have that carried through to EFB. I for one was using this feature in v1. If it could be re-considered at a future point in time that would be great. Regards Mark

    Intermittent license access issues

    Hi Mike Hotel, all Glad I am not the only one in the same boat! I have to say its quite frustrating with trying to evaluate v2 when there's these issues with the demo licenses. So far having installed v2 I have spent approx 1hr over the entire weekend where I got it work. The demo expiry time is counting down and I am limited to being able to evaluate EFB v2 only at the weekends. Urs- Is there something that can be done here? It's likely that v1 users wanting to try out v2 will be frustrated the same as I am and to be honest jumping in and buying the software because the demo license doesn't work is not the right way to go about this. If this is the only route to get v2 working (buying a full v2 license) , could you please consider a higher discount for those that are existing v1 users to make this more attractive. Without this and any other help available to fix the Port 13 issues , I am probably going to stick with v1. Regards Mark

    Intermittent license access issues

    Hi, Yes I have read that, but I would like to try the demo for more time before I decide to purchase or not. If the demo mode is problematic then this somewhat limits the flexibility of having a demo version in the first place. I am still trying to "find my feet" with v2. Right now I am unable to update the database, update the AIRAC etc. Regards Mark
  8. Hi, I have been experimenting with creating a flight plan and so far so good. v2 really looks good. The Airport layout is much improved as well. You actually get to see the closed runways now! One small thing is I have not been able to figure out (yet) where to define the alternates for a given route which were available in v1. I had a look in a couple of the manuals including the FlightPlan one and no information appears on how to set these. Is this feature available in v2 and if so where can I find it? Many thx Mark
  9. Hi, I am running the demo version of v2 and the latest updates installed and am still experiencing issues with the license being found and not found. Local Port 13 is configured to be open as an Outbound rule in Windows Defender and on occasions I see the EFB Server start up without any warnings but on other occasions it has a problem finding the license.Windows Firewall has also been turned off completely but same issue. Secondly, I also see that I can not start the DbBuilder even though I am prompted that the FS configuration files have changed when starting up the EFB Server. This just runs in an endless loop between DBBuilder and Server where the license can not be detected by the DBBuilder and points back to restarting the Server. In the Licenses folder there is a .dlsc file present. I was able to access the DBBuilder the first time as part of the installation but since then not able to access. Any ideas why this would be intermittent?

  10. Just to confirm this is likely to be a FSUIPC issue. Had the same issue. EFB Client was not connecting so started out at LSZH as the default location each time. In my case the P3D dll.xml contained no FSUIPC entry (for the unregistered version) even though FSUIPC and the Install log showed the installation was complete without errors. Once the entry is present in this file , you will see the EFB Server run its startup routine/log and will see FSUIPC running via this message "FSUIPC successfully connected". Also check in P3D that FSUIPC appears in the Add-on Menu. <?xml version="1.0" encoding="Windows-1252"?> <SimBase.Document Type="Launch" version="1,0"> <Descr>Launch</Descr> <Filename>dll.xml</Filename> <Disabled>False</Disabled> <Launch.ManualLoad>False</Launch.ManualLoad> <Launch.Addon> <Name>FSUIPC 5</Name> <Disabled>False</Disabled> <Path>Modules\FSUIPC5.dll</Path> </Launch.Addon> <Launch.Addon> <Name>as_connect</Name> <Disabled>False</Disabled> <Path>as_srv\as_connect_64.dll</Path> </Launch.Addon> </SimBase.Document> Regards Mark

    Server cannot be reached

    Sorry you are not having much luck. I ran into similar problems. I can only pass my findings along to you which helped solve some of the issues. Re connection issues, I found that Port 13 had to be configured as an Outbound rule within Windows Defender. I also found out it is easy to misconfigure the port. If you access the Outbound rule you created for this open port, select Properties and then go to the Protocols and Ports tab, you want to make sure "13" is set to a Local Port. Mine was set to the Remote port when I set up the rule initially and this gave me the connection failure. As for your other AV program, it depends upon which one you use and it's appropriate settings for the port. Maybe you could share which AV program you have so someone else can comment? You could also try disabling your AV completely and just try with configuring Windows Defender to open Port 13. Basically simplify the set up. Hope this helps a little?? Regards Mark
  12. Update: Re-installed the full v1.6.8 package and everything is now running as expected. Regards Mark
  13. Hello Urs, Just to let you know I have run into the same problem in updating from v1.6.6 to v1.6.8 using the update package. Update package was successfully installed according to Add/Remove Programs. However when clicking the Data Provider nothing happens. Same for the DU. Checked the log files and nothing is recorded at all in terms of DP or DU starting. Am now attempting an EFB uninstall and re-install of the full package. Regards Mark

    A few questions

    Hi Ken, I will attempt to answer some of your questions...answers in red below. 1) Are the ILS frequencies shown for the various airports ... this is critical or your looking for charts. Yes. If you're not seeing the glide slope and ILS info for example, go to the Approach segment view. There's a toolbar with a few navigational icons. Select the icon showing a 3x3 grid with a tick mark. This is a "visibility" button. From there you will see you can enable Comm frequencies, the Briefing strip and Profile view with GS to show up. Alternatively , if you click on the Approach segment view, you should see your arrivals airport in the main menu (it's context sensitive depending which segment of the flight your are in). From here click this button and select "Airport Information". Selecting the Landing Aids tab will give you ILS frequencies and more for all runways.Section7 of the manual explains all the info available 2) Does the "moving map" require a kick start by clicking the Ctrl+Shift+M or does it need to be configured somewhere. Should not need this. Again the icons bar includes one that activates the map-. Essentially it synchs the position of the plan within FSX to your position on the EFB map. The icon you are looking for is one with an aircraft inside it. It may be greyed out if you do not have an active connection between EFB and FSX.Section7 of the manual explains all the info available. 3) I'm a little confused about how to get Active Sky's data working in EFB ... what are we looking for and where. Pass. 4) On the wish list I would like to see "VRoute" included ... it seldom fails to find a current route for even the "small town" flights like CYKA to CYVR but it's not a big deal to paste them in. Best left to Travis or Urs to consider this. 5) CYKA now has an ILS ...(WestJet) wouldn't bring their 737's in without it ... but how do I set that new ILS up in EFB ... or can it even be done? The old existing FSX NDB is a pain If the real world airport now has an ILS approach, you'll need to purchase or subscribe to Navigraph or equivalent service to download the latest FMS data (so called AIRAC cycle) and import into EFB. Having said that, there may still be problems if the airport scenery in FSX has not been updated with this info as well, so you would likely suffer a mismatch issue. Regards Mark
