What format to import a route into G1000H

Unread post by Bell 407 » Mon May 15, 2017 12:15 pm

Afternoon All,

Some quick assistance would be appreciated. I need to get a route into a B407 G1000H. I am using Basecamp to do the waypoint management on.

However, when I save the .gpx file to the memory card and plug it into the machine, it says "no flight plans listed".

Is there a different format to export from Basecamp for the G1000H to read?

Any help would be appreciated.

Doesn't the G1000 require a properly exported file with a .fpl extension?
I believe this is an XML file and your planning software needs to support the G1000.

I used to be indecisive but now I’m not so sure..
