Mark,

Thanks, I tried rfinder for say KJFK to EGLL.  It created a good enough FP and I  modified it in notepad to FSX format (comparing to an existing FP that FSX generated JFK to EGLL via Alasak!).  Then in CDU I tried to load it, but it doesn't do anything.  I have another FP that loads ok in CDU.

So, I started deleting waypoints, like the oceanic ones:

[flightplan]
title=KJFK to EGLL
description=KJFK, EGLL
type = IFR
routetype = 3
cruising_altitude=0
departure_id=KJFK, N40*  38.39 , W73*  46.74 , +000013.00
destination_id=EGLL, N51*  28.65 , W0*  27.68 , +000080.00
departure_name=New_York_John_F_Kennedy_Intl
destination_name=Heathrow
waypoint.0=KJFK,A, N40* 38.39,  W73*  46.74, +000000.00,
waypoint.1=PUT, I, N41* 57.19,  W071* 50.38, +000000.00,
waypoint.2=BOS,A,N42* 21.26,  W070* 59.22, +000000.00,
waypoint.3=SCUPP, I, N42* 36.11,  W070* 13.49, +000000.00,
waypoint.4=CANAL, I, N42* 40.08,  W070* 01.21, +000000.00,
waypoint.5=TUSKY, I, N43* 33.54,  W067* 00.00, +000000.00,
waypoint.6=COLOR, I, N46* 40.24,  W052* 30.50, +000000.00,
waypoint.7=RONPO, I, N46* 52.38,  W051* 00.00, +000000.00,
waypoint.12=MALOT, I, N53* 00.00,  W015* 00.00, +000000.00,
waypoint.13=GISTI, I, N53* 00.00,  W014* 00.00, +000000.00,
waypoint.14=SLANY, I, N52* 09.31,  W005* 50.32, +000000.00,
waypoint.15=STU, I, N51* 59.40,  W005* 02.24, +000000.00,
waypoint.16=DIKAS, I, N51* 46.37,  W003* 15.33, +000000.00,
waypoint.17=GAVGO, I, N51* 33.50,  W001* 42.36, +000000.00,
waypoint.18=KENET, I, N51* 31.14,  W001* 27.18, +000000.00,
waypoint.19=EGLL,A,N51* 28.39,  W000* 27.41, +000000.00,


Still no luck with that.

I also tried a simroutes.com FP in FSX format, but CDU won't load that either.  

I lastly tried entering FP manually, it seems my nav files might be nonexistent as I tried JFK, MERIT, HFD, PUT, BOS-all which should exist.  

I broke down and bought the latest navigraph...works now.
