Yesterday I read a notam for JFK airport about a new RNAV SID. It refer to DME/DME mode for the update the FMS position.
Now I know that our 777 use the DME/DME mode but what about the "oldest" aircraft such as the 767? How the 767 update the position?
On the 777 we use the DME/DME mode and the GPS/IRU as back-up. Is it the INS the main mode on the 767?

Primary nav on the 767 is by radio updating. This can occur only once airborne but is very quick in areas of good rho/rho coverage. If the aircraft commences its takeoff with a map shifted position, the RNAV may be inaccurate during a noise sensitive phase of the flight as the shift from IRS position to radio updating position can cause the aircraft to deviate its flight path when it's just too close to those darn microphones.
Lots of noise violations occur for this simple reason.
Don't know about the 777 but I think I heard they beat this problem out of that system prior to building it.
