Been very happy with PF3 after many VA flights. The only thing I wish it could do is assign the landing runway earlier in the approach. Sometimes it is a mad scramble, once I get the landing runway and am close to the arrival airport, to fly the approach, program the FMC, descend, etc.. etc, Having the landing runway available as soon as making the first contact with approach would be great.
That is already on the wishlist.
"Virtually" move your last waypoint 15 to 20 nm ahead in the flightplan for PF3. It can easily be done with LittleNavMap:
- Create a custom waypoint on your route 15 to 20 nm before your final waypoint
- rename that custom waypoint to match the real final waypoint
- delete the real final waypoint.
Then load that flightplan into PF3. Keep your flightplan you use with your FMC untouched of course.
Now PF3 will assign the runway 15 to 20 nm before you reach your "real" final waypoint, giving you a little more time to prepare your FMC.
