FMC Wind and Data uplink

I would love to see as a new feature the ability to uplink data into the FMC including wind forecast on the legs page, and routes. As a simbrief user, currently I'm exporting captain sim flightplans but they don't show up and only default flightplans can be used, which isn't ideal in some cases.

Agreed 100% this is a great value add.  With the data available in P3D with 3rd party add-ons it would make FMC calculations much more accurate.  I would add that full ACARS FMC integration would be fantastic.

This would definitely make flight planning much more realistic. I vote on this also.

+1 from me too. Full ACARS implemenetion with route request and wind uplink is an expected feature for a premium add-on in 2020.

I'm genuinely surprised a $100 plane doesn't have this already.

just got this airplane.  I'm also very surprised at this.  This should be added.

FMC's ACT RTE 1 DATA Wind Data REQUEST -- How?
Reply #8 - May 31st, 2020 at 10:54pm
Print Post  
Does the Wind Data REQUEST function in the FMC work?  The manual Part II F, p152 says "The wind page displays waypoint wind data for one to four altitudes per waypoint. This data can be uplinked or manually entered."  Pressing the line select key doesn't seem to do anything.

Not to my knowledge, but I would love to be surprised.  I just got this plane and was pretty surprise for a multitude of reasons to not see this basic feature.

Bug:
Wind Data Uplink not functional

Manual Reference:
Manual Part 2F, page 152

Issue:
Wind data is not able to be uplinked.

Proof:
Wind Page
"The wind page displays waypoint wind data for one to four altitudes per waypoint. This data can be uplinked or manually entered. The altitudes are entered first. The altitudes can be entered in any order and are sorted and displayed in ascending order.
"

It's not a bug but an optional feature. Which is optional even on RW 767.
We'll consider the uplink implementation after more important features.
The 'uplinked or' wording has been removed from the manual.

I really like this plane.  But at this point, I'd consider it a mandatory option
