Issues with Transoceanic Flight Planning - Entering Coordinates

Been using flightplandatabase.com for several months to create flight plans - short haul, long haul (including transoceanic). I used the site to cut and paste directly into the IF search box to create the flight plan. For example, I’d enter KATL - FACT for an Atlanta to Cape Town flight, click the Infinite Flight tab to create the flight plan text below to cut and paste into the search box.

For months, every single coordinate would be plotted, now, for the past 48 hours or so, only the non-numerical coordinates show up plotted on my flight plan. So right now, there are huge gaps - i.e. 1890 nm between VADAD and APKID

Is there an issue on the IF side or with the way these are being entered?

Hello

Have you tried inputing your coordinates with out the dashes? Infinite Flight only accepts numbers and letters in the flight plan text field. Symbols aren’t accepted other than a slash /.

Thanks

Hello!

I’ve noticed that before. You have to change the following in the coordinate before you can insert it into IF. Here is the coordinate that FlightPlanDatabase comes from:

5300N0-1300W

You have to remove the O behind the first coordinate and merge the hyphen into a stroke. It should look like this:

5300N/1300W

Then you can insert it in IF :)
