FSC Shows Different ILS Frequency than P3Dv4 Map (answered)

Recommended Posts

I flew into EIDW today and was cleared to runway 28.  FSC showed the ILS frequency as 108.9 while the P3D map showed the correct (newer frequency) of 111.35 (updated via fsAerodata).  FSC shows that it is updated with my Navigraph subscription to the latest cycle.  Yet, the old frequency appears within FSC.

I note that FSC is pulling the wrong data from a MyTraffic6 bgl file.  So, I figured that I'd just delete that file.  But, when I do this, no ILS frequencies are shown for the airport at all in FSC. If the MyTraffic bgl file is deleted for EIDW and FSCDbManager is run, shouldn't the correct information be found since it shows up in the P3D map correctly?

Hi again Volker; I checked with the people at FSAD and, from the graphic below, FSAD files are read by FSC.  The difference is that, in mine, the FSAD information for runway 28 is showing a MyTraffic bgl with the wrong frequency even though FSAD is on top of the scenery list. If I remove the MyTraffic bgl for EIDW, no ILS information for EIDW is shown at all. I use P3Dv4, the latest FSUIPC. no network, FSC 9.6 (rev 9), Navigraph Cycle 1708 (rev 1), Windows 10 Pro with two monitors.  

Any ideas how I can get my installation to look like the picture below?  Thanks, Rick

If this is not the screenshot of your data then the sending of your data makes no sense.
Publish here a screenshot of your data from EDIW.

In the screenshot I saw that there is the entry "FSAD_Navaids" from Jose from fsAeroData.
Like I wrote before:

The FlightSim Commander DataBase Manager does not read airports nor data, updated by fsAerodata data.

The one below is mine.  You'll note that it uses a different bgl file that the one above which seems to suggest that FSC did read the fsAerodata information.  I just sent an email with the file and these screenshots.  My goal is to have the information in P3D match what is in FSC and if that means not using the fsAerodata that is OK.  But, if there is a way to use the newer data and have it match, that would be even better - thanks, Rick

Thanks for the email Volker explaining that an earlier version was able to read fsAeroData files but the latest one cannot.  I can live with that although it makes fsAerodata useless to me.  Is it OK to ask why a later version doesn't do what an earlier version was able to do?
