A380 Wind direction wrong in MFD and FMC - PA gauges

Post by WWA3463 » 22 Mar 2016, 13:49

I'm using A380 PA Gauges (files dated 01-2013), as I was not able to find the vasFMC gauges.

I noticed that the wind direction in not displayed as expected in the MDF and the FMC:
- wind direction is given in geographic coordinates, and does not compensate for magnetic correction, both in the MFD and the FMC
- wind arrow in the MFD is given that same orientation, but is shown 180° in the opposite direction of the wind.

This is compared to the HUD wind indication which is correct, as well as Active Sky Next, or other A/C MFDs

As I was not able to find recent updates for those gauges, I did fix the xml code by myself, pretty easy.

Now wind indication in ASN, HUD, MFD and FMC is the same.

If anyone is interested by these updates for MFD and FMC, just let me know.

Nicolas
