    PocketFMS problems with 8.8.29

    So, today I uploaded the latest software and something mysterious happened; the appearance of the map changes in that the airfields have disappeared but blue ATZs seem to be a new feature. In this image (sorry, I can't figure out how to past the image, only the link), You will see that my aeroplane is centred on EGLD and there is a blue ring around it which I presume is the ATZ but I have never seen this before. There is also a segment of the ATZ to the SW which is weird. There's another one to the SW which I presume is EGWU.
    More importantly, you will see that whilst the VRPs for all the surrounding airfields of EGLD, EGTB, EGTR and EGLM are shown, the airfields themselves are not.

    Any suggestions?

    PFMS tell me its not a problem with their data.

    We must have missed your post about map issues, we are checking it. When this happened did you also update the PocketFMS database in the EFIS? As far as I know we did not change any of the map drawing code.


    If you have a problem that needs immediate assistance emailing support@advanced-flight-systems.com should always get you a fast response.

    It looks like the amount of data in the PocketFMS file has increased.

    1. When did you last update the Map data?

    2. What happens if you turn off the intersections?

    I wasn't able to reproduce the error but if you can send your AF2MAPFM.AFM and Export Report.txt to shawn@advanced-flight-systems.com and I can take a look at your file directly.

    On its way, thanks.
    I updated map data and sw version at the same time.
    I've no idea how to turn of the intersections!

    With your data I was still unable to reproduce the the faulty screenshot. I would recommend re-downloading and installing the software to the EFIS. Additionally a freshly formatted card loaded with the data that you provided.

    OK, I'll try that. FYI: I always format the card before installing new data but we'll see what happens.

    I deleted and re-installed the PFMS data onto my SD card without doing anything to the remaining two AFS files and all seems fine. Thanks.

    If that question is aimed at me then it was 24th October when I updated the map data.
    I still don't know what "2. What happens if you turn off the intersections? " means.
