IT IS NOT THE NAVDATABASE

The problem be with Route Manager. It breaks with Dupicate VOR names, and SID STAR. they are false. I KNOW BECAUSE I'VE TRIED.

And I meant the altimeter setting. As in QNH. It changes with scenery tiles false.

I've used route manager successfully with SID's, STAR's and IAP's. And what are the duplicate names? I've never come across any?

@OPFOR77
They are not correct, trust me. I know because I fly on VATSIM frequently, with advanced software such as PMDG MD-11.

Even with updated NavData, it was not correct, and you are always going to piss someone off.

the sense you are making is not.

If we gave everybody in the World free software today, but we failed to teach them about the four freedoms, five years from now, would they still have it? Probably not, because if they don’t recognise their freedoms, they’ll let their freedoms fall

Wait, so your saying pulling the latest charts and using them isn't correct? That... doesn't make sense.

Thats correct, but they don't work in FlightGear as they do in real life!
