AspEdit manual      Waypoint dialog box


Purpose

To enter multiple waypoints at once, use the Block function.

Access

  • Via the Add fix dialog box, to create a new waypoint,
  • By double clicking on an existing waypoint in the List.

Functioning

  • Enter the name of the waypointin the name field.  Waypoint names must be 5 characters long.

  • Either use the latitude and longitude fields to enter the values separately, or use the Lat / Lon field to enter both at once.
    • Tip: use the copy / paste function: copy the coordinates from the aeronautical publication, and paste them in the Lat / Lon field.
    • The format of the coordinates is permissive.  Also the separator between the latitude and longitude is permissive.
    • Always double check the result in the field below the Lat / Lon field.  eg. If the Lat / Lon field can't handle a separator, it may be required to paste latitude and longitude separately in the respective fields.
