Saving, Loading and Clearing a route


Saving, Loading and Clearing a route 

This will show you how you can load, save or clear a route. 

We estimate that this will take 2 minutes to complete.

Detailed Explanation 

Saving a route

Once a route has been activated you will have the option on saving the route so you can access this route at anytime. You will be able to name the route to whatever you feel appropriate. The default saving suggestion is a preferred one to use.

 Let's go and have a look how we can save a route that has already been loaded in.

We have loaded a route from LFBO to EGKK already for you, let's have a look at how we can save this route by clicking on "Flight" in the toolbar.

Interaction 1 Click the Flight button.

Interaction 1 Click the Save menu item.

  To enable the “SAVE” button you need to make sure that you have enabled Save routes in the general setting, see Settings for instructions. A FROM and TO aerodromes with a validated route must be activated for the option of saving.

By default it will give you a route name to use, FROM - > TO (ALT1, ALT2). You can change the name just by clicking in the search bar and typing your new route name. Let's leave the route name for now.

Interaction 1 Click the Save button.

Once you have saved the route you will be taken back to the map screen. Let's go and have a look at your recently saved route. 

Interaction 1 Click the Flight button.

The Load option is now available, this shows us that we have some saved routes in the application. 

Interaction 1 Click the Load menu item.

Interaction 2 Click the From Saved button.

  1. Loading a Route

The following window will appear once you access the load function. You can see that the route we saved has been listed.

Interaction 1 Click the RTE (Route) button.

 Your route will be listed here for you to view. Routes will be explained in more details in a later topic. 

You can sort the list of saved routes by clicking on any of the following tabs.

NAME: order alphabetically from the name of your saved route

FROM: order alphabetically the FROM aerodromes

TO: order alphabetically the TO aerodromes

DATE: will order the routes in date order

Let's have a look at loading this route.

Interaction 1 Click the Yes button.

Before you can load a route your present data will be erased if you have not already saved it. 

Your new route is now loaded and ready for you to use. You can go back and load any other route just going back to "Flight". Let's have a look how we can now remove a saved route that we don't use anymore. 

PFB Connection (Windows Only) 

The EFF software (PFB software in this case) have to generate two files that will be read by Charts+ 19.1 application.

In C:\IFS\ecroute.xml, following information are stored : FROM, FROM RWY, TO, TO RWY, ALTN1, ALTN2.

 In C:\Navtech\eCharts Enroute\Flightplans\CurrentFlight.txt, following information is stored: ROUTE.

  • In the enroute chart workspace, expand ROUTE ribbon and click FLIGHT tile, then LOAD > FROM PFB.
  • Charts+ retrieves the data and displays it to the user. 
  • Click Load.
  • The available data is automatically loaded into corresponding tiles.
     User can open the route check and activate it.

Interaction 1 Click the Flight button.
