    yeah they are. the app is pretty accurate and you can use different profiles for climb, cruise, and descent. my problem is for long range the hs tbm runs out of fuel way too soon. in the app, setting up a flight from klal-koun I should make it there at 30kft long range cruise even with the 48kt headwind with reserve to spare. its a 966nm trip but in sim I just barely make it to kmei to my reserve line. thats maybe halfway there? dont even think its that honestly

    so? by that logic a king air would be the same performance if you double the fuel burn. same engine different plane. that same engine has to pull a bigger plane which effects all aspects of the flight. you modified the weights? great thats what I asked about originally. what did you modify? maybe share the profile?

    how? the one in pfpx is a different model with different performance and capabilities. the app has the model we use and just requires some info on the air frame to be accurate pfpx is great for getting and exporting routes. but I dont trust a calculation for the 850 to work on the 900

    what weights and equipment settings did you use for the app?

    I've been using the android version of the same app. been trying to do a 960(ish) NM flight to test accuracy but the plane in the sim says it will run out of fuel maybe half way there even though the app says I'll make it with 50 gals left over

    VNAV profile and TOD point not showing up?

    glad that worked for you

    VNAV profile and TOD point not showing up?

    no it isnt because the altitude restriction is white. have to select it and press enter for it to change color and be usable in vnav. which I am unable to do currently so I reported it in the support thread. until then you will have to fly the constraints manually. but I think most of the constraints dont apply to turboprops unless told otherwise? so the contraints remain white for "reference" and the pilot has to enable them manually
  8. In the g1000 I believe I am supposed to be able to scroll (outer fms knob) through the flight plan in pattern of waypoint-altitude-repeat and press enter on the white entries to enable them. However when I scroll, the white entries are skipped entirely and are not selectable. the first restriction already in blue works fine and is selectable but none after
