Need Improved User Defined WPs

Thomas I 4 years ago updated by Darien S 4 years ago 1

The USER DEFINED WP feature is very poorly designed. The feature needs to be able to accept Rho-Theta WP definitions in FMS/FMF format, in addition to Lat/Long or chart cursor positions. For example the feature needs to be able to accept "PAE210/15" for the PAE VOR 220 deg radial at 15 nm. It then needs to name that point the PAE220/15 as well as also show that as an equivalent Lat/Long value. These WPs need to be easily entered into the flight plan, and easily revised.

I agree, rho/theta definitions should be part of ANY flight planner's baseline configuration.
