Updateable Nav data in P3Dv5?

Postby viperxbr » Sun Apr 12, 2020 11:16 pm


Any chance of seeing the stock navigation data in future P3D versions being updatable via Navigraph or other means?

I believe that the default Nav data for VORs, ILSs etc. Is still encoded in scenery .bgl files, which is probably not something that Navigraph would be able to address. The default navaids have been made current by LM, but as time goes on, they will gradually become outdated again.

FSAeroData was (and still is) the “go to” commercial solution to update default nav data in P3DV4 and prior, and freeware updates are published by Hérve Sors. For the moment FSAeroData is not planning to make their product compatible with V5, but they may change their mind is there is enough demand. Hérve Sors will definitely be making V5 versions of his VOR/NDB/ILS updates.

fsaerodata has been updated to work with P3d5.
