Flight plan stays on first waypoint and dist remaining goes up

Recommended Posts

Flight plan in EFB2 client stays on first waypoint and distance remaining increases. It doesn't recognize that the aircraft has passed that waypoint so it does not progress with the aircraft.  The map shows the correct movement of the aircraft and passes on the waypoints correctly.

 

It doesn't seem to happen all the time. perhaps 50%. This is with the latest airac. I can't remember when it started to to do this as perhaps I thought it was just an anomoly. Happens with pmdg 737 and qw 788. p3d v4.4

 

Can anyone provide some guidance on how to fix this. thanks.

Hi Colin,

 

Yes, this is something that can happen under very rare circumstances, if the discrepancy between the Routing and the actually flown path is exceeding a certain limit, as EFB is then not able to synchronize waypoint passage. It mainly happens (but not exclusively) with heavier metal. A simple remedy to re-sync EFB is to make a DCT-TO  to the next waypoint in the EFB-Flightplan.

I had this issue also some times.  DIR-TO solves it.

It mostly happens during the SID, when the flightpath deviates a bit from the one in EFB.

But there is no possibility to alter or enlarge that "certain limit" in one or other ini-file?

No, this is a hardcoded figure which changes depending to flight conditions. The Algorithm for waypoint sequencing is quite complex. There are no "simple" figures that can be changed.

exactly what I thought but it was worth the question😉
