  1. Thanks Oskar. I must admit I didn't consider real-world data. To ensure Radar Contact gives me the correct runway designator I should really edit the AFCAD and amend the runway so it matches the real-world one.
  2. I have FS DreamTeam KORD installed for P3Dv4. Looking at the runway designations in ADE, Runway 10/28 is described as that. But after running the database update that runway is shown as 10L / 28R in the Client map. I'm reading AP_KORD.bgl in the OhareX\Scenery folder. When I run MakeRwys it creates a runways.xml file that also identifies them as 10/28. I'm confused. Why the difference and how to correct it?
  3. I should clarify my statement. The server is running on Win 10 build 1809 but the client is running on Win 7 Pro.
  4. Just for info I’ve been running 1809 for a couple of months now and EFB v2 has been fine. I run the client in a networked PC.
  5. Thanks Urs. That feature will be very helpful when deciding on a suitable parking gate.
  6. In EFB v1 the gates that had a working jetway were identified on the display in blue with a black circle. Unless I've missed something obvious I cannot see the same in v2.
  7. If you overlaid a political map on the EFB interface it would be a complete mess and you'd never see anything. Use a 2560*1440 or larger display and you can fit both on.
  8. Zoom was the first thing I tried. No joy. Everything is okay on the ground. Regarding Ai settings I have Above Aircraft at 12099, Below Aircraft at -10999, Label background transparent (Ground) unchecked but perhaps Label background transparent (World Map) being checked is the problem. I'll remove that check and report back. Thanks. LATER: Yes, it was the transparent option on World Map. Sorted.
  9. Gents, I'm running #61 and #78 which appear to be the latest. See the attached images. The Ai info for the Finn Air flight is clearly visible in Traffic Monitor and Little Navmap but not in the EFB Client. The aircraft shows but no flight info. I'm running P3D v4.4, FSUIPC v5.15 and UT LIve with the newly released Winter 2019 schedule released in the last few days. I haven't changed the default settings for Ai so it's a bit of a mystery. And yes, I do have the T/LBL option selected.
  10. I doubt it. It's a navigation tool, not a political map. But political maps are useful for finding out what city, river, lake etc you're flying over. I use LittleNavmap for that. The author doesn't make a charge for what is excellent software but I made a contribution in recognition of his effort and generosity.
  11. There is a forum if you wish to ask why the big increase.
  12. Thanks. I just checked the prices and the maps are expensive. But 12 months of FMS data is now 31 Euros, a modest increase on last year.
  13. I do try to talk sense and most of the time, succeed. 😁
  14. Brizer, I just checked my annual subscription for FMS Navigraph data. £23.81. That's less than £2 a month. Hardly a show-stopper. And because it's priced in Euros I probably paid more than those who use the Euro because of the UKP exchange rate. Yes, of course you can fly without any up-to-date nav data but if you fly a comlex 3rd party aircraft like PMDG737 surely you would want to use the latest nav data. Paying a lot of money for a decent aircraft and not keeping the nav data up to date seems a strange decision.
  15. Glad you have it sorted. Whilst I understand your reluctance to subscribe to Navigraph real world data does change and that includes SIDs and STARs. Collating that data takes time and effort and I wouldn't expect Richard Stefan to provide it free of charge.
  16. If your serious about your flying and I assume you are if you’ve bought EFB then a Navigraph subscription is very useful. It keeps PFPX and EFB in alignment which is essential to get problem-free plans loaded into EFB. Your call but without Navigraph EFB will get less and less accurate.
  17. You haven't stated which Navigraph cycle you're using or the version of PFPX. I'm running 1.28.9i of PFPX and 1812 of Navigraph. If you're not on the same we may not get the same results. Here is the plan generated:- KEPPA1 KEPPA UH336 NATYA DCT UVUPU DCT BHI DCT SAPED DCT GUGAB DCT POLEV DCT PULOL DCT ANZAC DCT YUSEF T25 TNK J30 TN J251 LAKUP UQ175 VEGPU VEGP5A Try that and see how you get on. I'm also attaching the efbr file you can drop straight into the relevant EFB2 folder. YMMLYPDN02.efbr
  18. You need to be specific and paste a plan that does not work for you. Navigraph cycle used to create it is also required. I’ve used PFPX for ages with EFB both v1 and v2 during beta testing. It works but you have to abide by the rules. Yes, having to run things with Admin privileges is a pain but that’s down to Win 10 and not EFB. In any case it’s easy to setup a shortcut to run with admin privileges automatically. Google it if necessary.
  19. The answer is extremely simple and nothing to do with EFB. Windows 10 security demands you start applications with administrator privileges for them to work correctly. You will probably have the same problem with other executables running in W10.
  20. John, I use LittleNavmap alongside EFB for precisely that purpose. Excellent program that runs on a network.
  21. Spot on Andy. A sudden change of wind direction necessitating a runway change would cause havoc if plans included the SID or STAR. That is precisely why they are not included. When the pilot requests clearance the controller will advise the SID in operation and that will be fed into the FMC by the pilot. Likewise when contacting Approach for the arrival phase the STAR will be notified and again, that will be fed into the FMC, and not before. YNWA. ?
  22. Your question should be directed at the scenery developer. Why have they chosen to close both ends of a working runway? Unless of course that runway is non-operational in the real world. I just checked and it isn’t.
  23. My guess is both ends of the runway have been closed for both take-off and landing. AFCADs are often the lowest priority for scenery designers.
