Have a route in the IFD that goes from A->B->C.  Load the plan into FF with no issue.  Center vectors you while on the A-B segment so that you’re off course.  They then clear you direct C which I enter in the IFD. I do a Load from Panel in FF and nothing changes. I check Settings-IFD-route field in FF and it doesn’t show the changed route.

Tested in the air with my IFD440s and on the ground with the 10.3 trainer and have the same results. 

So is the IFD not sending Lat/Lon on a Direct to?

If the flight plan didn't change, there is nothing to update.

It doesn't sync active legs, or present position-direct.

Disappointing. I’d argue the flight plan is changed since it is updated to go from current location to the next waypoint.

This is a FF issue discussed at length recently in the Avidyne Pilots Facebook forum. The recommendation is to contact FF tech support to generate enough interest that FF changes the way they code this issue.

I was part of the FB discussion and their were two issues discussed: auto update and Direct to.  It is clear that auto update is on the FF side.  I was less clear with Direct to.

There is a Route field in FF settings (Devices->IFD) that is populated by FF with what is sent by the IFD. When you do a Direct, this field does not change as expected.  There are two possibilities:  the IFD is not sending the new Direct plan or FF is not reading it correctly. 

I hope this is on the FF side as well.

I don’t know about the auto part; I know the direct-to download works as you wish with at least one other EFB manufacturer. This leads me to believe the issue is on the FF side of the equation.
