I'm not sure how I never knew about this, but someone created new magdec.bgl files for both FS9 and FSX that update both sims to the latest real world variation data. If you've ever wondered why the extended runway centerline on the ND doesn't line up with the waypoints of the approach - this is the reason. Both sims have old magnetic variation data while the positions of waypoints in the navdata are calculated using the current variation data.Download it here at the upper left and read the instructions - I'm using the 2010 files now for both sims and the stuff on the ND is way closer to how it should be now.http://www.aero.sors.fr/navaids.htmlKudos to whoever did this!

Ummm, what PMDG 737 in FSX are you referring to? PMDG have not yet released their 737 for FSX - it's still in Beta testing!
It doens't fix the ILS offset with the PMDG 737 in FSX... But great update of the nav data base thanks Ryan and back to work now!!

It is possible to get the FS9 version to work in FSX but nowhere near 100%. I got the files from somewhere and it didn't take me long to reinstall FS9 !!Great find Ryan - and be sure to look at the home page guys - lots of other good stuff there.
