I created scenery in Wed 1.7 for KGZN.  I validated it no issues. I am running 11.21

I pick location from Flight Configuration of KGZN
I pick Cessna Skyhawk
I pick start flight
In the X-plane 530 GNS I hit direct and dial in KGZN and there is nothing that comes up.
I can hit the m and bring up the map and drill in and select the airport and it gives me the details of KGZN.

I have verified that the KGZN is in the following files.

X-PLANE 11\Custom Scenery\KGZN\Earth nav data\apt.dat
X-PLANE 11\Custom Data\earth_fix.dat
X-PLANE 11\Custom Data\earth_nav.dat
X-PLANE 11\Custom Data\GNS450\earth_fix.dat
X-PLANE 11\Custom Data\GNS450\earth_nav.dat

I have checked the Log.txt file and found this:

I found the following scenery packages (prioritized in this order):
  0 Custom Scenery/KGZN/

Why am I not able to see KGZN in the Xplane 530 GPS?

X-Plane's GPS and FMS use CIFP data (in Resources\default data\CIFP or Custom Data\CIFP). This will not necessarily be in sync with the scenery itself.

I checked x-plane 11\Custom Data\CIFP and there is a file there called KGZN.dat and I checked x-plane 11\Resources\default data\CIFP and there is a file there called KGZN.dat.

Please let me know why this does not work?
