[In Progress] Mini GPS does not display coordinates

Recommended Posts

I'm running the 340 on a Mac in X-Plane 10.22r2

I have tried the mini GPS and it seems, as if it does not find waypoints, at least it does not display the coordinates and hence does not calculate headings and distances.

I have entered the waypoints in upper case, as well as in lower case. The waypoints I used are definitely present in the Resources/default data/earth_fix.dat file.

Any hints?

Doesn't work for me, regardless where I use it.

In the specific occasion I was airborne near the location displayed in the FROM area.

What are your regional settings for numbers inside your operating system ? Is your decimal mark a point or a coma ?

For software using my system locale it's comma. I don't know how the plugin is working.

Just wondering, if I am the only user with this issue.

I'd also appreciate any advise, how to support the analysis of the issue

I'm running X-Plane 10.22r2 64bit on Mac OS 10.8.5

Thus far you are the only one to say anything, both here or via support e-mail channels. It doesn't mean you're the only one (or it could), but we just haven't heard from anyone else.

 

MdMax may be onto something, but it would be you who needs to first try. What happens if you change the locale from comma to decimal?

Hi Cameron,

 

no change after changing number settings to "." for decimal separator.

Must be something different.

Any way for me to help you debug?

I too am having the same issues with the mini-gps.

 

Is your operating system set to any specific language or decimal format as well?

No specific language and my decimal point is a dot not a coma.

 

Thanks for the information. Is this on a Mac or Windows machine?

Sorry for just guessing here, but I "guess" it won't hurt... :)

Have you checked if you have the latest X-Plane data update (from data.x-plane.com)? If the Saab reads the fix information from there, an outdated one might be the source of the issue.

Also, if you are using the UFMC, it typically allows you to overwrite the default XP data files with a new set compiled from the Navigraph ones. If you've done that, I'd try with a fresh set.

We cannot provide a solution if we cannot reproduce the problem.  This seems to be a VERY isolated issue and as of today we have been unable to duplicate it on our systems.

odd, would have been nice to be able to use it, but no big problem. Vor-vor gets a liltle busy when also flying online.

 

So nothing to do with the decimal point / comma settings of the OS?
