Recently we have seen a lot of codes used to unlock our products being offered for discounted prices. Almost all of them are bought using stolen credit cards. These codes will all be blocked by our systems and you will have to try to get your money back from the seller, we are unable to assist in these matters. Do be very careful when you see a deal that is almost too good to be true, it probably is too good to be true.

Map not displaying in MFD

Recommended Posts

I had this on a previous thread but having read the thread again I decided it was inappropriate. Thus I start this new thread.

 

have got my VA company route to load via the FMS and even added the SID and STAR which shows just fine in the FMS. But I can't get it to show as a map on the MFD. I have toggled the Format/Range knob to make sure it is on MAP but absolutely no route shows.

 

In fairness I am sure it is something I am not doing correctly but I have followed the manuals over and over again. Still nothing there.

 

Any help gratefully received as always.

Since this is definitely no general issue, I need the full flightplan before I can help here.

Hi Hans

 

No problem. This is it. It loads into the FMC ok but just won't show on the map. I should add that I added the SID and STAR into it after the plan loaded. What you see here is the plan created for our VA when the new Jo'burg base was added at Xmas. In fairness it is the first time we have brought the CRJ900 into service with us and so we were relying on 3rd party software such as PFPX or FS Commander to create the FMC plans. We have no previous experience with the CRJ which we intend to use more widely across our worldwide regional bases which is why we need to get it right.

It was my fault entirely Hans. I tried to follow the tutorial but must have missed the bit where you have to click "EXECUTE" on the FMC keyboard when you are prompted in the screen. In fairness the instruction on the screen isn't that obvious which is how I missed it. Anyway that's that problem solved. Thank you for the input!

 

I managed a complete flight with just the problem of an autopilot alarm that wouldn't shut up! But I will make separate thread for that.

OK. Good to know. I was really worried about this one and I'm glad it sorted itself 🙂
