Navigraph AIRAC 2001
Tried doing this however Toper still says Airac 1303. Both airports_10 and runways_10 are updated, but airports.dat still says the file is from 2013. Does this mean the airac cycle was not updated correctly?
Navigraph AIRAC 2001
I just updated my Navigraph Data Manager to AIRAC Cycle 2001 Rev1. I then launched the ToLiss A319 and see in the MCDU the active data base is AIRAC cycle 1913, which I believe covers December of 2019, not January 2020. I then went to the Navigraph site and manually downloaded the latest data flies, which exactly match the files already installed by the data manager app. In selecting which set to install I selected the XPlane/GNS 430/various aircraft/ToLiss A319(XP10)... That's when I noticed the files for ToLiss are designated for XPlane10, not 11. Can you tell me how I can install the AIRAC data files so they are read properly by this aircraft?
I have both of those add-on mappings updated with AIRAC cycle 2001 yet the A319 MCDU still indicates cycle 1913. I reviewed the Sim Manual which describes changing the alternate cycle within the MCDU but that did not solve this issue. Here are screenshots of my MCDU showing AIRAC cycle 1913 and Navigraph Data manager showing AIRAC 2001 with Add-on mappings for SSG, XPlane 11 and XPlane GNS 430, which includes ToLiss. I have checked the installed flies within the Custom Data folder and they are identical.
I first tried deleting the data from the Custom Data folder, then re-downloading and installing using the FMS manager. Curiously, when I selected "XPlane 11" as the target for installation nothing showed up in the Custom Data folder. Only by manually selecting that folder did the Manager install files into it. Then, when I tried loading XP I kept getting an error window stating that I had installed XP10 data, not XP11. It took me quite a while to sort this out, including reinstalling XP (unnecessary). Finally, I resorted to manually downloading the XPlane11 set directly from Navigraph and then dragging the result into a new, empty Custom Data folder (I retained the original elsewhere as a backup). Started XP. No problem. Opened the ToLiss 319 and checked the MCDU... Active Data Base - AIRAC Cycle 2001. Finally!
BTW... After removing the ToLiss folders from my plugins folder and then re-opening that aircraft, I now see three new ToLiss folders there and the one called ToLissData now contains "AwysAIRAC2001" where previously it only went up to "1913". So all of this seems to have cleaned out the NavData system. Thanks again.
Version 2.6.8, new 64-bit Windows build, X-Plane selected with AIRAC cycle 2001, Navigraph database in use with AIRAC cycle2011, flight plan LOAG_LOWW.lnmpln changed and performance profile PA30 Twin Comanche.lnmperf unchanged. Connected to VATSIM network.
Now that the cause has been determined, one must unfortunately also state that it is a pity how Majestics treats users who do not always fly with the current AIRACs, let alone use the current cards online, but yes constantly have to pay. Me and certainly others fly offline and that with a data status from the year xxxx, but with all saved charts and data records for the individual aircraft. Some of these old documents can no longer be used and the Dash can no longer be used in full for this group of people. The AIRAC 1712 sponsored with the conversion is only available in the Dash, neither I (and certainly others) have the charts from the time, nor the corresponding installation files for other aircraft and planning programs (PFPX). The conversion of .mdb to.db2 is probably possible according to the Internet, but whether it really works in the dash is questionable. Unfortunately, it is also no longer possible to simply make a clean cut and just restart with an AIRAC 2001, since the providers of navigation data no longer allow charts to be saved (Navigraph). Everything is only going online to be able to rip users off permanently. It's a shame that Majestics has changed the format here for whatever reason and thus excludes certain users. You have to see whether I (you) can still use the Dash, otherwise you only have to switch to another aircraft, which would be a shame, since the Dash is still the most demanding aircraft.

Login to Navigraph, choose Manual Install, scroll down to X-Plane 11 - native** and download the file , (note 2001 is the AIRAC cycle). Unzip the contents to your \X-Plane\Custom Data folder.
Download and unzip. There is just the one file fstramp_2001.exe which will update the data. You may have to specify where FSTramp itself is, so be aware it may be in C:\ProgramData which is another hidden folder by default, in this case make sure to tick Hidden Items as above. When updating the FMS data the FSTramp Scenery Assembler will need running. 041b061a72
