    problem with new map file for 4500?

    I loaded the new map data for the 4500. on the map I see no data. I reinstalled the old map file and it works fine. Is there a problem with the new map file?

    I too am having a problem with Map file. I'm using pocket FMS data but when I install their latest data it doesn't work.
    I only substituted their file and left the other two AFS ones untouched. Re-instating old data cures it.
    Specifically, I followed these instructions:

    DO NOT change the Files AF2TEREU.AFM and AF2VECEU.AFM on the mapping sd.


    The resulting file from the PocketFMS export is named AF2MAPFM.AFM. This needs to be renamed to AF2MAPEU.AFM.

    I'm still on mid Feb. data. Will let you know more when I update to march soon.

    New map files for 4500 did not work for me... Get Map File too new message, or something along those lines.

    I suspect that you are running the old EFIS software, you should be running:

    OK. So today I installed the latest software version but I still cannot run the PocketFMS map data. If I use a different card with the old map data on it it works fine.

    After a fresh format of your card.
    Ensure you are using FAT32 and something like AF2_MAP as your label. Avoid spaces.

    Copy the AF2TEREU.AFM and AF2VECEU.AFM to the drive.

    From Pocket FMS [File] -> [EFIS AeroData Export] -> [Advanced Flight Systems]
    Browse to your "AF2_MAP" card.

    Make sure you have for following files on your card.

    Code:
    F:\>dir Volume in drive F is AF2_MAP
     Volume Serial Number is 303A-563D
    
     Directory of F:\

    You may now look at the Export Report.txt for warnings and issues:
    Code:
    WARNING: Condensing airspace EF00011 in 68,25 from 436 points to 400 points.
    or
    Code:
    ERROR: Too many airspaces segments (2427) in 50,5. Lost 254
    Insert the SD card in the EFIS and your done.

    If you would email your AF2MAPFM.AFM and Export Report.txt to me (shawn@advanced-flight...) I can see if there is an issue with the built data.
