Navigation: loading custom waypoints from .pln files is broken on some systems

i updated my fms data…yes there’s an update today…i encountered an error reading database from lnm (reading the xml file, pheraphs caused by new xml logic of su10)…in addition to this with the updated navdata i have this problem too…custom waypoints go to north pole…removing two folders from communty (navigraph navdata and another) solve the problem…but i lost all my navigraph database and airports in island etc…please fix this…it’s a big bug

It’s highly inadvisable to manually remove Navigraph by hand. Always use Navigraph NavData Center to add, update or remove Navigraph data. Always.

In fact, new guidance has come in that many of us probably don’t follow - we should be keeping NavData Center open all the time now in SU10.


Please read this:

(slightly off-topic)

Correct. The format of content.xml changed radically with SU10. Instead of showing a warning and skipping the file, LNM 2.6.x treats this as a fatal problem and aborts the import of the scenery library. LNM 2.8.0 (currently in beta) fixes the issue. 2.8.0 works fine for me, give it a try.

Already done…downloaded 2.8 beta…thanks

Do you have the same issue if you follow the OP’s steps to reproduce it?


Provide extra information to complete the original description of the issue:

Any *pln containing CUSTOM WAYPOINTS loaded into the sim only has departure and arrival, and a point in between near or at the North Pole.

If relevant, provide additional screenshots/video:

When uninstalling latest Navigraph Airac cycle, behavior is back to normal

Sorry. I cannot reproduce your error. Every LNM flight plan including user waypoints I create imports correctly into MSFS.

The content.xml file will NOT be created automatically any longer as in the previous version because the logic behind it is a little bit differ. Also the structure of this XML file.


Do you use our Navigraph Navdata Center? When yes, quit it completely from the tray, delete the content file an start the sim.

You will see that per default this file will not be created any longer.

What you see, is the content file which was created from us, from the Navigraph Navdata Center to be sure, that the order is every time correct.

But the sim per se, doesn’t create this file any longer.


Ok I understand now how it works. Better to know certain things.
So why was I advised to delete the file?

I deleted the previous post so as not to create problems for other simmers.


Well its not just me. Plenty of others are having the same issue

Is there a solution to the north pole bug? I also have the problem since SU10

No, Asobo is still investigate it … a second time where I post the same link in this posting:

Bug happens if you plan the flight directly on the World Map, save it and then load it back in. I’m guessing it’s not related to LittleNavMap.

Can confirm, removed navigraph, bug went away.

Did Navigraph have to be removed permanently or just reinstalled?

It’s hard to say if Navigraph is really affected,

it simply use some sim general system implemented. Strange bug I’ve reported already in WT G1000NXi and hope for quick solution because some very important navaids can’t be used in FPL what is very big problem.

Update: yes, removed Navigraph, all navaids are there and looks to me ARR/APR procedure working +/- as it need to. C172 G1000Nxi v14 sim. I’ve reinstalled Navigraph AIRAC (Remove/Install) as test, nothing changes, problem with no navaids persists (my reported problem in WT topic). Uninstaled Navigraph (in app only Remove last AIRAC) all NAVBLUE data are ok what are affected with Navigraph.

Hi gentlemen,
I have built a second revision now for AIRAC 2209. Open the Navigraph Navdata Center and update your AIRAC data. You should be able to load all PLN files (also with custom waypoints) as in the past. We have fixed this internally now.

Please, when possible any feedback is welcome :wink:

Thank you,


it works thanks a lot
