Entering different format for lat/long coordinates

Recommended Posts

My preference is to write, and Boeing fmc's accept, N50W050 as an oceanic waypoint. Can PFPX in a future update accept this format? Thanks

No reply from support email, can we make this possible ourselves?

Pretty sure you can’t create your own format. The rule is waypoints are five digits  only. So your example would be 5050N.

 

Support for PFPX appears to be limited to ensuring the wx server is available. I have written asking for a simple change in encoding for the flight schedule but it remains unresolved.

PFPX will accept the EuroControl IFPS formats:

 

Examples:
46N078W
4620N05805W
462013N0580503W
