Can way points be entered using lats. and longs. If so how do you do it
Entering waypoints by lat/long
You can enter coordinates in a variety of formats. The important thing is don't use any spaces. Spaces separate waypoints. All of these formats should work: w98.435n45.3 98.43w45.3n 45.3,-98.435 45.3/-98.435 45.3n98.435w 45d18n98d25m48w 282445N/0813420W (NOTAM style) n,s,w,e are always cardinal directions. If you don't specify, latitude comes before longitude and South and West are negative. d is the separator between degrees and minutes. m is the separator between minutes and seconds. You can even get silly and say things like 45.5d3n123d30.5w ... which means 45.5 degrees and 3 minutes, which equals 45 degrees and 33 minutes by 123 degrees, 30 minutes and 30 seconds. As long as you don't use a space and don't accidentally use 's' for seconds ('s' always means south), you should be good. Have fun and bring back pics! -dave
Problems entering latlong in route box

I am trying to enter this as a waypoint in the route box, but every time I key it into the route box, it removes everything I typed... What am I doing wrong?

My waypoint is: Lat: N 36 : 51.07   Long: W 76 : 11.49


I am entering the following in the route box:  n36d51.07w76d11.49


So why won't the route box accept that?



Sorry about this

The instructions are out of date. The new planner, launched summer 2015, takes coordinates in the ICAO standard formats:







Edit, Name, & Save a Waypoint

Any possible updates that will allow a user to edit, name, and save a waypoint? I'm a helicopter guy and being able to build and save waypoints would be very useful. Thanks

Could the previous ability to

Could the previous ability to accept multiple formats be put back in?  Please.  I get locations to survey as a list of DMS format co-ordinates, sometimes in D mm.mm.  At the moment I have to convert each lat and each long into decimal degrees for me to use skyvector.  It would be really nice if I didn't have to do that (error prone and time wasting) step.

Also, what format is 'ICAO' and where is it defined?  It doesn't seem to gel with ISO6709.



Yes, I am a simmer...but

Yes, I am a simmer...but apparently the new Flight 1 GTN750 allows import of flight plans and user waypoints...identical to the real $14K Gtn750.  The coordinates, however are inconceivably in two different formats...go figure...I can deal with that.


The F1GTN750/650 process of writing waypoints is exactly as described on the official Garmin site.  The only difference is;

1. In real life you have to copy the file to an SD Card, sneaker-net it to your real GTN750, plug it in, activate your GTN750 and import. Or;

2. Do the same creation of the flight plan or waypoints, write the files to the right place(All user waypoints are stored in a file called “userwpt.txt”. You can find 

the “userwpt.txt” file in the following folder:  
… \ Microsoft Flight Simulator X \ F1GTN \ 
Respectively if you use Prepar3D: 

... \ Lockheed Martin \ Prepar3D \ F1TGTN \ )directly import the files from your PC....the same file would be placed on a real life SD Card.  Otherwise the file formats appear to be identical.



how would you translate the following which is direct output  in the flightplan BOX of Skyvector?

KUDD HAPPE 334018N1164210W 334313N1164322W 334526N1164402W 334853N1164935W BANDS 335332N1164548W 335046N1164224W 334911N1163958W 334653N1163637W 334521N1163500W 334318N1163350W HAPPE BANDS PDZ   KVNY

I edited The above coords and produce a failed GTN import below


if I remove the coordinate references, to produce FPN/RI:F:KUDD:F:HAPPE:F:BANDS:F:PDZ:F:KVNY
the remaining refs import successfully.


GPS N33°43.11' W116°23.55' in the map yields 334307N1162333W In the Skyvector route box...how are we to use either of those numbers in producing a "Garmin GTN ROUTE" .gfp as stipulated in the GTN format .PDF?

Obviously the user coords picked from by clicking on a place on the map and included in the flightplan  "are not in decimal form as requested by the PDF file...

This isn't just a case of a little simmer guy asking questions of a big outfit who serves real world flyers, it has to do with anybody that owns a virtual or real GTN 750.
 Is there any Skyvector output format that will directly translate to the required GTN import .GFP flight plan format?
Thanks, Chas
