Dear JP,

I have used
- latest Navigraph 1801 for both FsiPanel 2017 and P3D v4.1
- latest Navaids and ILS/Rwy 1801 from http://www.aero.sors.fr/navaids3.html to update P3D v4.1
- then, I installed the latest Lorby Addon Organizer for P3Dv4 and clicked on "Update DB" in FsiPanel Setup

However, some runway/ILS courses are still wrong. For example, for KLAX 25L 
- skyvector shows 251 degrees
- loading a plane in P3D on 25L shows 251 heading
- ILS Inspector from http://www.aero.sors.fr/navaids.html shows my P3D v4.1 indeed has 251 degrees
- FsiPanel still has 249 (after Update DB was applied twice)

Did I do anything wrong here?

This is a minor issue because I can correct it manually. But, I thought I should report it.

Hi,

For FSiPanel 2017 request, please use the new forum:
http://www.fsipanel.com/forum

Sometimes 3rd party sceneries are not properly recognized by Makerwys.exe, in that case, you can edit yourself the ILS course and frequency.

Go to Setup, select tab "Airport Editor"
Type the ICAO code, choose the runway and modify the data as you wish.

Cheers,

J-P

Thanks. I have found the problem.

ORBX Southern California has an outdated KLAX (25L has the old 249 heading). 
My default P3D has the up-to-date KLAX (25L has the new 251 heading).

Probably due to the ordering of sceneries, default 3D KLAX was placed above and used. So, I never had the wrong 249 until seeing it in FSiPanel.

249 ended up in FSiPanel because MakeRwys.exe found both KLAX headings, generating "Runways.txt" with the correct one and "runways.xml" with the wrong one. The wrong one ended up getting picked up by the FSiPanel database update. 

This is my theory though. I may be wrong.
