Importing flight plans

Postby pilotmansam » Fri Mar 15, 2019 12:42 am

Well, here I am again with another question. All my previous questions have been answered; thank you everyone and Jeff.
I would now like to explore importing flight plans. This was apparently covered some years ago in the “ feature of the week” forum however I cannot find these old subjects. Is there anywhere I can find a tutorial? Seems like I need to create a gpx file on the usb stick but I need more details. Thanks in advance.

Here's the old Feature of the Week about it. It doesn't describe the GPX format and I don't see any good examples in my files. The EFIS looks for rtept or wpt entries in the file and uses the lat, lon, and name.

Importing GPX Flight Plans via USB

There are many good programs, apps and websites available today that allow export of flight plan files in the universal GPX format. Here’s how to use them in your GRT EFIS.

  1. Use your favorite computer flight planning program, such as iFlightPlanner.com or the AOPA Flight Planner, to create and save a flight plan in GPX format to your USB thumb drive.
  2. Insert the USB drive into the USB port of your EFIS.
  3. Press the FLT PLAN softkey to bring up the Flight Plan page.
  4. Turn the right knob to highlight "Import Flight Plan" and press the knob to activate.
  5. Turn the left knob to scroll through the list of files on the USB stick until you see the GPX file you are looking for.
  6. Highlight the one you want, press the "LOAD" softkey, and the flight plan waypoints will appear in sequence on the EFIS flight plan page.
