Airport duplicate entries... (answered)

Recommended Posts

P3Dv4.1 - FSUIPC5.1 - no network -

FSC Build 9.7 - 26 July 2017 - Aerosoft - last update 13/04/2018 - Navigraph AIRAC 1804 Rev1 Mar29-Apr25 - 3 monitors - W10-64bit...

P3D4 with ORBX Global plus all regions - NO additional scenery/airports added.

Busy flying a round world trip and finding duplicate entries for some airfields in Canada and the USA!

The airfields are indicated by the "dot" but with the airport I.D. showing twice - one above the other.

Example: today arriving KFSO the GPS module indicated NO ILS data! On the map KSFO was showing the KSFO text twice.

In the find-airport  window typing KSFO brings up two entries...

the first KSFO based on "ADE_FTX_NCA_KSF" this shows no detail in the usual airport display window (this will be a reference to ORBX Northern California)

the second KSFO based on "APX_15180.bgl"  shows all relevant airport detail - parking, ILS etc, etc.

There are too many duplicate entries on the map to list here but worth noting - this has only started to appear since arriving from Asia into Alaska and down the west coast...

I can take data from the map for ILS approaches - just curious as to why FSC is reading the first file listed "ADE..." and not the bgl-file which contains the vital information!

Very strange...

Would be happy if you can shed some light on this issue.

Regards :)
