    What is the airport identifier and what is the RNAV procedure you are referring to?

    The ony departure procedure for these three airports is MIAMI 1.  It is just radar vectors with different transition routes and nothing in common. These type of departure procedures are not usually coded in the database.  At KUZA, there is a similar departure procedure Hugo 2, but it has a common initial route for all transition routes and it is included in the database. On these type of departure procedures, the route is primarily there for the case if you lose radio contact and in practice are rarely followed other than the initial vectors, followed by a direct to a  waypoint on your route, resume own navigation.  


    Note that the MIAMI 1 departure procedure is a regular SID and not an RNAV SID.  Also note that all of the arrival procedures including the RNAV procedures are in the database.
