Lat/Long waypoint over 100W

Post by ALF » Thu Apr 14, 2011 8:35 am

Hi, I'm having a problem inputting a real world flightplan from EGLL to KSFO.

The flightplan I'm trying to enter is this
N0493F320 WOBUN DCT WELIN UT420 TNT UN57 POL UN601 MARGO UN590 NINEX UP59 BALIX/M084F320 DCT 64N020W 69N030W 71N040W/M084F340 73N060W DCT MEDPA/M084F360 DCT 7130N08000W DCT 69N090W DCT 6530N10000W DCT TADOM/N0485F360 DCT ADREX/N0489F380 DCT YMM J517 GEG J3 RBL GOLDN5

The problem is two lat long waypoints that are nonstandard.
7130N08000W How can I enter a waypoint like this, where the Latitude is 71 degress 30 minutes??
6530N10000W How can I enter a Longitude of 100 degress or more??

I know all about normal lat/long waypoints and how to convert them into the 5 letter format like 64N020W will be 6420N

Regards
Allan

Please see our FAQ at http://www.vroute.net/content/view/72/41/ for 100W+ coordinates.

Regrettably you cannot enter 71d30' or similar in vroute.
