Default can i enter coordinates for direct to function?

i have learnt to use mouse cursor, nearest airport and manually entering waypoints as direct to flight plans. but i wonder is it possible to enter coordinates to it?

Yes, you can enter coordinates.

You can just go to the USR waypoint page to make a new waypoint and pop them in in the lower section of the page.

It's probably better to use the User Waypoint pag, see page 39 of the NS430 manual for more details but you can throw your coords in there.

You'll find the manual under /dcs/mods/aircraft/ns430/doc/

1. go to WPT page
2. Go to last sub page "USR WPT"
3. Click YES to create a new WP.
4. Name it. I usually go A1, A2, A3 to make it simple
5. Scroll down to coordinates and enter Long/Lat from any source

Next, go to FLP (flight plan) Scroll down to an empty row, and imput your waypoint name.
Activate leg!
Or just click the Direct to Button and activate it from there!

I actually learned everything I know about the NS430 from watching tutorials on the real IRL gadget on youtube.
Amazing how accurate the sim is.

Hope that helps

by any chance, do you happen to know WHERE (physical file) on the drive the USER waypoints are being stored to?

Can we access the database somehow? As to update and edit info, airport info, approach plates and DB etc?

Seconding the above questions. Any ideas on where waypoint information is being stored? I'm noticing that it doesn't save user waypoints from mission to mission, but that seems like the greatest tool in this kit.

I might be able to chop together an AHK script that inputs one if I can't find it.
