Level-D SID/STAR data updates - how to?

Pro Member Trainee

Hi,

It's really strange as I've done this before without any problems but this time around it won't work!

The problem is with installing SID/STAR data into the Level D 767 FMC. I previously used the Navdata website and downloaded an all-in-one and I don't recall any issues with the process. Incidentally, the reason I'm doing it over again is as a result of a full system recovery.

Once the "all-in-one" is downloaded WinRAR opens the download and displays the following files:

approaches
sids
stars
nadata_sidstar_readme.txt

Clicking on the readme you'd expect to get some instruction on what to do and where to do it. Not in this case - it seems to be only the credits. Opening one of the other files you can see lots of airport specific data but the file formats don't match those within Level D'd navdata file in FS9. Obviously I don't wnat to copy/paste any unusual files into there. Also, with this download there is no data for UK airports - and I recall that there were with the previous update.

I've tried e.mailing navdata but no response as yet.

So basically the questions?

1.Does anyone know where to extract these files or what to do with them?
2. Failing the above, can anyone suggest another website where I might find SID/STAR data for Level D?

Any help or advice is much appreciated.

Thanks guys.

Dan

P.S. I did used the same website for my PMDG all-in-one and there were no problems whatsoever - I simply extracted the files directly to the relevant PMDG folder.

You must have missed it. I'm posting here only the top part of the readme file -- the last paragraph here are the installation instructions.

From what I can see, the path is correct and everything seems in order:

I had half a suspicion that that's what might have happened because I did the same but cancelled the download when I realised it. At the second attempt I made sure to select the LDS because the default points to the PIC and I thought I mustn't have changed it on my first attempt. BUT... the download started and it was the PIC again Shocked
The only way I finally managed to lasso it was by leaving the site and re-entering it... weird Very Happy

Negative. If you look closely, you'll find a readme file which will answer your question. Wink

ok so i replaced all the files in navdata folder. for example i don't see any SID's and STAR's for KSFO. the only SID's and STAR's i see are the airports with a .apt extension.

What am i doing wrong here?

still navigating nowhere.... Sad

Strange... I've got the KSFO in my folder. I've uploaded it here Arrow

You can also try your luck here Arrow

I'm surprised your files have the .apt extension. I would try a re-install of the All-In-One and follow the instructions to the letter.
