IXEG Developer Provides Update on FMS Work

IXEG developer Tom Kyler posted a brief update on the status of FMS work in the IXEG 733.

Early in the year, Kyler posted that developers were considering transitioning the FMS system to the XP1100 Navdata format. This newer format would mean greater accuracy in procedures and improved LNAV/VNAV and performance calculations.

In this latest post, Kyler is back (after a brief hiatus to focus on projects at his day job) and he has begun working on the route editing features using the new XP1000 dataset. He states this is the “backbone of the FMS future with regards to performance” and the coding may take some time.

While the coding may take time, Kyler says that done properly, this new dataset will ensure the “FMS will be functional and stable for many years to come.”
