Windows 10 with .575

Currently all routes planned are shown as Magnetic Track. Trip kit /Plog is also showing Track True,Track Heading, Magnetic Track as all being the same!

We now have weather and wind. The Variation deviation should also be known so when can we expect an algorithm corrected route Heading or Track please?

The improvements keep coming and I am now getting seriously impressed, (Which I admit has taken time!) but I want to go flying with Ev4 and daren't not yet!

Alan.

People actually use PLOG's in conjunction with an EFB? Learn something new everyday 🙂  but I do agree if the functionality is there it should work I do remember using the same function in RunwayHD for my Nav test PLOG, not used one since though. Doesn't seem to be anywhere to manually input wind details currently and as far as I can tell the auto function doesn't populate the fields either. Can't say this is stopping me using EV4 for flying - started using it locally now and will give it a go on longer journeys very soon.

When everything else fails, the Plog will always be there!. It will for me anyway. ?

Automatic windaloft will be implemented soon, its the next WX thingy that gets implemented. You can change w/v however manually already by simply tapping the w/v item for a leg and enter the wind in  DDDWW format, where DDD is direction and WW is speed, see this screenshot:

.

the navlog in the PDF flightbriefing will then give track vs heading already based on the manually entered winddata.

Hi Rob,

Thanks for the info. I had already found that W/V could be altered manually but changing W/V currently doesn't alter Track.

I will look forward to Auto wind.

Hi Alan, W/V never alters track. Also not with autowind when it becomes available. Its the heading required to follow the track that is influenced by wind, and that one is adjusted, and can be found in the flightbriefing PDF.

Yes...Doh!...brain fade!

What I meant to say was that currently putting in the wind manually does not change the shown MT to MH as I would expect it to. No matter, when Auto wind is sorted no doubt it will be ok.
