Hello,

a quick question for the FMS boffins out there...

If I have GPS position updating available to the FMC, should I still be inputting POS SHIFT information into the TAKEOFF REF page if conducting an intersection departure or does the FMC update with the current GPS position when I push the TOGA switches - ie overriding any POS SHIFT I have manually entered.??

thanks.

Scud,

There's no need to use this feature if you have GPS updating.

It only updates it when GPS is not active.
