CXG2 FMS Navigation

Post by joneill4094 » Mon Jan 29, 2018 12:07 am

Hello again!
At the risk of asking another question that reveals me doing something stupid, I need a little assistance. I've been having issues with FMS Navigation in the Citation X 2.0. I have the flight plan loaded in, no discontinuities, per init and all that complete. I checked the tutorial videos and made sure I was following their procedures. However, when I get airborne, my plane will not follow my flight plan. It will fly to the first waypoint, but afterwards will go off in a random direction or start trying to fly a circle around the waypoint. I have to manually click "direct to" and select the next waypoint every time I arrive at a waypoint. I have FMS1 navigation selected.

One thing I noticed is that all the videos I watched have a magenta line over the HSI, just like for VOR navigation, when FMC1 is selected. In my case, I do not have that nor can I figure out what I'm doing wrong. I did exactly what one of the tutorial's did, click for click, but his magenta line appeared and mine did not. See the pictures below for further:

FMS button pressed, without FMS1 selected under "BRG":

With FMS1 selected under "BRG":

As you can see in the picture, I also get an error on the FMC stating "Check Data Load 264."

I am running on P3D V3 on Windows 7. The problem exists on any routes, from real world routes with sid/star's and approaches, to a simple one waypoint flight plan like above. The plane just WILL NOT follow the FMS.

Any ideas guys?

Thanks!
John

You didn't "close" the flight plan. The final waypoint in the flight plan absolutely must be the destination.

Hi,

As far as I remember, this "check data load 264" message is a small bug, which you can ignore. In the old forums (before the crash) there have been several reports about that. The comment at that time was: "ignore it please, we will fix it in future releases/patches".

That solved it. Thanks WarpD!
