Waypoint Map Error (Read 550 times)

When I manually enter waypoints, they are not showing up in the correct position on the map, 10-15 NMs off.  In at least one case, the Icon and the Short Name are not even in the same location.  Yes, I've double checked the values input for the Lat/Long.  Is anyone else seeing this problem?  What is the fix?

Interesting. I was going to get a hold of PocketFMS. Some of their airports are out quite a bit compared to the Canadian VNC's. I wonder if it's the same problem?

I wrote some of the identifiers down. I'll get some screen shots over the weekend and email them to support.

Figured it out. The seaplane bases are showing up as no hard surface airports (circles) on the PocketFMS database. On the screenshot below CJT7, CKF5 and CKE6 are all seaplane airports and only have water runways. I suppose you could say they are not hard surface airports but really should have the anchor symbol. I didn't check to see if they turned off if I turned the seaplane airports off.

This seems like a bug either in the PockFMS database or Skyview translation of the database. Is there plans to fix the problem?
