    Hi Bill

    In 20 years of doing this stuff, first I’ve heard of anything like this. The terrain BGLs don’t make any any changes to your installation at all, just add the data through the terrain engine. No config files or anything like that are altered in any way, so . . .

    I’m not all that familiar with the GPS system. Does it have a terrain component? Does it read the terrain database or come with it’s own? Does this happen at certain airports, or all of them? Does this happen with certain aircraft, or all of them so-equipped?

    When you say the approaches are “broken,” what precisely is happening? Error message? Crash? Please be more specific, and I’ll defer to anyone else with more knowledge on this one because right now I have no clue what could be causing it.

    I’ll continue looking in it. Meanwhile, I’m open to all suggestions.
