Map/Find object/ question

Recommended Posts

Hello, all. This is my first post.

I have been trying to create ZZZZ flight plans based on routes that do not start and end at FS airports - and that contain waypoints that do not coincide with FS map features(do to their being from very old route maps). I have made user waypoints for all the necessary locations. One thing that would make this process easier would be the ability to navigate the map by inputting the ICAO of my user waypoints. I don't see a check box for uwp's in the MAP/Find Object applet. Also, I haven't been able to glean a movement function from the Window/User Waypoint applet. At present, I move around the map by clicking on it until one of my waypoints comes into view. Then I can designate it as a ZZZZ airport. This is tough searching when the flight plan has any length to it. Have I missed a functionality in the manual?

Thanks.

Hi Ben,

1. Turn in the button toolbar the button UWP to ON. Now you can search and find in the Waypoint window a UserWaypoint via the ICAO code.

Finding a UWP in the Find window is possible from the next version

2. There is no other way than by clicking with the mouse into the map to come to a different geographic location, unless one click on a waypoint in the flight plan window.

Regards,

Volker
