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_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.


The format you used above, is the FS9 .PLN format, not the FSX .PLN format. This is the FSX format:

As you can see, it is very different, and whereas FSX can read/load/use te FS9 PLN format, the CS 757 v4.x FMC/CDU only loads the FSX PLN format. That's why it didn't work. If you had loaded the plan/route manually, it will work (unless a waypoint is not listed in the FMC/CDU database). ;)
