Incorrect Coordinates on Airport Ground Vehicles

Post by alpha15 » Fri Sep 14, 2018 6:56 pm

Hello,

For some reason in the latest 1 month I got wrong coordinates in all of my ground vehicle signals. It seems to change from 67.xxx to -67.xxx and as a result I see the markers to exist in the middle of pacific ocean instead of airport runway :D

Do you have any idea why is that happening ? I didn't changed anything on my vrs setup , and one day realised that I got them in wrong location.

Any help will be appreciated.

Any suggestion to that problem ?

I really want to fix that, ground traffic is such interest like the air traffic :cry:

Surface positions, unlike airborne positions, resolve to 8 different positions on the globe. VRS picks the position closest to the receiver location. If you set the correct receiver location (or just enter a location close to the airport) then you should get the ground traffic appearing at the airport and not somewhere offset 90, 180 or 270 degrees (or in the wrong hemisphere).
