vSTARS Temporary NavData updates


Recommended Posts

Hey Guys,

 

I've decided that until Ross has set up a permanent solution for updating NavData that I would go ahead and provide you guys with an update myself.

 

It can be downloaded here -- (To be re-uploaded)

 

Download the file and unzip it into your Appdata/vSTARS/NavData folder.

 

To get to your AppData/vSTARS folder in Windows XP,

 

1. Start->Run

2. Enter "%AppData%/vSTARS" into the window without quotes

3. Unzip the XML into the NavData folder, back up the original Waypoints.xml

 

In Windows 7,

 

1.Start

2. Enter "%AppData%/vSTARS" into the search bar and open the folder.

3. Unzip the XML into the NavData folder, back up the original Waypoints.xml

 

This has been compiled using AIRAC 1201 Data. If you have any issues or discrepancies, let me know.

 

Updated 09/02/2012, Please re-download if you have an earlier version.

 

Cheers!

Rahul

Part of the data does come from Navigraph, but that is not US data.

 

If you have any missing fixes, let me know and I can amend my files and send discrepancies to my provider.

 

Cheers!

Rahul, what method did you use to update the file...I ask because I want to update my files but to just the area (radar range). I don't think its necessary to have waypoints in another ARTCC...I've downloaded yours because it had the new waypoints!

I use access to data I obtained from another project I've been working on.

 

I could happily sort something out with you, temporarily of course, until Ross gets his update method up and running.

 

Cheers!

Marvin, what waypoints were you looking for? I want to make sure that the source I plan to use (FADDS subscription) has them.

Ross, I use FADDS, but I'd like to maintain just around the Radar sites, not necessary to maintain the entire ARTCC. I use the 60NM box around ANC and thats all is needed really.

 

I just need a way of converting it to your format for use is all.

What were those waypoints?

 

Ross, they were the new ones that will take effect 09 FEB.

It seems that alot of fixes are changing, or just recently changed within the last two months or so.

 

This is a great feature, and you are going to maintain it, just thought from an FE perspective I can manage the ones for my ARTCC.

Ross,

 

Are you using the NASR 56 Day Subscription that is dated Feb 09 - April 05, as he said, it becomes active in Feb 09, I found it in there.

 

Cheers!

Is there any Language preference (apart from English)? -- I'm happy to re-write in another language for ease of use on your side, My current one is in Perl.

 

Cheers!

Alrighty,

 

Let me know if I can help you in any way possible, Not sure if you're going to continue updating the AIRAC for the world or just the US, I could whip up the data for you every cycle outside of the US.

 

Cheers!

It's Jeppesen data that I have been granted a license to use for personal and professional use.
