It works even better now since the atmosphere is defined up to 2500km, which means that the MFD no longer has to "guesstimate" drag when orbiting above the 2006-P1 atmosphere cutoff.

Discovered this MFD just a few weeks ago. Tried in Orbiter 2006 and 2010, works perfectly. The only bug is a CTD when planet have no atmosfere (in 2010, not tried in 2006).

Landed DGIV at moon Ummu-Base for an uap-test in orbiter2010 just yesterday in the evening.
Three green, smooth landing. No Problem at all.

Aerobrake is always installed and activated on my system. Nearly the most important mfd for me.

Maybe that was because i simply not used the aerobrake for that approach. Imfd, Basesync and standard-mfds are your friends when approaching an airless body

CTD happens only when the MFD is open. Maybe, its a problem of my own, so try it.

@mc_

Confirmed
Tried same Approach again with a scenario just after deorbit-burn.
CTD with open aerobrake-mfd shortly before touchdown.
Happy landing without open aerobrake-mfd.

No idea. Maybe aerobrake expect another orbit (go around)?

Aerobrake can be used over the Moon to set up your landing point of touchdown.

Just make sure you deactivate it before landing, and you should be fine. I've used before for this purpose.
