PMDG Forum Rules

1) SIGN YOUR POSTS. Since 1997, we have asked users to sign their real name, first and last, to all posts in the PMDG forum. We do this in order to keep conversations personal and familiar. You took the time to be here, we want to get to know you. This is one of the few rigid rules that we enforce regularly. We do so because we feel that forums in which users must engage one another personally are generally warmer, more collegial and friendly. Posts that are unsigned will be quietly removed without comment by the moderators, so to make your life easy- we recommend enabling your forum signature so that you never need to remember. Do this by clicking the username pull-down at the top right, then selecting "User Settings." You will find the signature editor on the ACCOUNT tab, about half way down the page. Look for "Edit Post Signature." Be sure to click the "Show Signatures" box.

2) BE NICE. We are all simmers here and no matter our differences of opinion, we share a common love of aviation, computing and simulation. Treat everyone else in the forum with respect even when you disagree. If someone frustrates you, walk away from the conversation or ask for a moderator to get involved. Speaking of Moderators, they prefer not to be treated as "The Thought Police" but if any behavior infringes on the enjoyment of another user or is otherwise considered to be unacceptable in the moderator's judgment, it will be addressed in keeping with our view of ensuring that this forum remains a healthy environment for all simmers.

3) BE LAWFUL: Any behavior that infringes upon the law, such as discussion or solicitation of piracy, threats, intimidation or abuse will be handled unsympathetically by the moderators. Threats and intimidation may, at the moderator's discretion, be provided to law enforcement for handling.

4) BE FACTUAL: When you post, always be factual. Moderators will remove posts that are determined not to be factually accurate.

5) RESPECT COPYRIGHTS: Posting of copyrighted material such as flight manuals owned by Boeing or various airlines is not allowed in this forum. If you have questions related to copyrighted material, please contact a forum moderator for clarification.

6) RESPECT PMDG: We love to hear what you like about our products. We also like to hear what you think can be improved, or what isn't working. Please do tell us and we will always treat your feedback with value. Just be sure to treat the team respectfully, as they do put a significant amount of effort into building and maintaining these great simulation products for you.

7) RESPECT PMDG DEVELOPERS: All of the developers will spend some time here. Given the ratio of developers-to-users, it simply isn't possible for us to answer every post and private message individually. Please know that we do try to read everything, but developer workload is simply too high to manage personal contact with tens-of-thousands of users simultaneously. In most cases, members of the development team will stick to conversations in the forum and will not answer private messages.

8) RESPECT OTHER DEVELOPERS: PMDG has always advocated for a strong development community and we have many friends within this community. Every developer offers something unique that helps to make the simming community larger and more vibrant. We insist that you treat our friends respectfully.

9) RESPECT MODERATORS: Moderators have a tough job, and none of them enjoy having to stomp out negativity. If a moderator has to weigh in to keep a thread peaceful, please respect that effort and refrain from giving the moderator any grief.

10) If you require official support for any of our products please open a support ticket through the support portal,

11) This forum is designed primarily as a vehicle for the PMDG development team to interact with our customers, and for customers to interact with one another in a manner that is positive, supportive and assists in the general advancement of understanding the simulation and helping to make this and future simulations better. Any other use of this forum is not permitted, including but not limited to discussion of pricing policies, business practices, forum moderating policies, advertising of non-PMDG products, promotion of events, services or products that are not approved in advance by PMDG or any other topic deemed unacceptable by any forum administrator

12) HAVE FUN: This is the whole point of it all.

    737-700 - Wrong SID lateral path - LIEE rwy 32 CAR6E

    Hello my pilot friends!

    Yesterday I was trying my first complete flight after last update - made only few tests without properly setting up the FMC 'till then - and my departure from LIEE was RWY32 via CAR6E.
    Unfortunately, after selecting the SID I've found my lateral path quite messed out (small preview here, you should find the fullsize screenshot attached).

    Screenshot 2022-11-05 231058.png

    This is the actual path for the CAR6E:


    I depart from LIEE very often and I don't remember this problem before, but I must also say that my routes are mainly northbound and it's possible I haven't flown the CAR6E for a while 'till now.
    You think this could be something PMDG related, or maybe I could check on the AIRAC data files from Navigraph to see if there's something wrong there?

    I'm interested in your opinion before opening a ticket to PMDG.
    Thank you very much for your helpful attention! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Best regards!

    I must apologize 'cause I've used the search box AFTER opening a new topic, instead of checking it BEFORE ๐Ÿ˜…

    I've found the same error (even if with small different results on the Navigation Display) had already been reported few months ago.
    Hi everyone, first of all thank you for this fantastic 737. I have found problems with SID (VOR procedure) In this case with that of LIEE, on the charts I have a procedure but in the ND I have another (CHART turn RIGHT and ND turn LEFT). Is it a problem with the plane or with Navigraph?

    I could delete the topic obviously, but maybe it could be interesting to know: does something different have to be expected after the last updates on LNAV logics implemented on the PMDG 737?
    Or this would be the same even on the real aircraft?

    Thank you again and sorry for my mistake.

      I'm pretty sure you are not seeing an error here; rather, this is how the Honeywell FMS will render a path that it cannot resolve within it's path prediction capabilities. I expect the path depends on speeds and the dynamics of the flight. Once airborne I expect the FMS may provide the AFDS sufficient guidance. However, this is a pure conventional procedure, not based on GPS/GNSS and lacks such modern elements as ARINC 424 leg segments such as RF and such procedures are often required to be hand-flown. This is why modern procedures use ARINC standards.

      Like I said on the post you referenced, just fly the airplane.
