I am flying approaches but cannot get the CDI needles to activate. I have the appropriate frequencies entered and VLOC elected on the GNS 430.  I am running on a Macbook Pro  running El Capitan X-plane 10with 8GB virtual memory and 12 GB free on the hard disc. Everything else works fine. I have an active moving Map. The flags stay on on the CDI.

Can you please be more specific? What airport, runway and aircraft, for example? What frequencies are you entering?

Good questions: For anyone else with this problem. The airport I was using for the IFR approach was KHYX 27 approach. It apparently is not in the X-flight data base and when I went a few miles away to KMBS 5 approach the needles worked fine. I figured this out myself but your answer would have definitely helped. Thanx Joe

Hi Joe,

FYI, if you find airports that are not in X-Plane, you can file a New Airport Code Request to have them added on the Airport Scenery Gateway. Once someone creates scenery for them, they'll be added to X-Plane in an update.

You can file issues with NAVAIDs in the same place, under the NAVAID tab.
