Thanks for your post! To confirm, you're referring to having lat/lon fixes added at regular intervals on a direct route between two airports, correct?

If so, that is a feature we previously had, but is currently unavailable due to the discontinuation of the DUATS program, which supported a number of our automated routing capabilities. However, we have identified a way to replicate this feature and anticipate we'll enable it again in the near future. We'll post a follow up response here once it's available!

Until the FAA removes many VOR's/Vortac's from the National Aerospace System, the use of them for intermediate fixes, similar to that which was available with DUATS, is very much desired. In addition to providing for excellent situation awareness, for me, it always was a great basis for "how goes it" decision making.

Planning via VOR's is currently available. Simply select Low Altitude Airways when planning your flight in our Flight Wizard and auto-routing will use a combination of VORs, Victor airways, and known waypoints to produce a route. We are working on implementing a new version of the GPS Direct with Lat/Lon Fixes at regular intervals that become unavailable with the discontinuation of DUATS.

Let us know if the Low Altitude Airways routing achieves the result you are looking for in the meantime!
