Airbus A330 Data entry and navigational issues

On 10 March 2015 an Airbus A330 was conducting a regular passenger service from Sydney (Australia) to Kuala Lumpur (Malaysia). On departure from runway 16R the aircraft was observed by ATC to enter the departure flight path of the parallel runway 16L. The flight crew identified a problem with the onboard navigation systems. Attempts to troubleshoot and rectify the problem resulted in further degradation of the navigation system, as well as to the aircraft’s flight guidance and flight control systems. The flight crew elected to discontinue the flight but were unable to return to Sydney as the weather had deteriorated in the Sydney area and the available systems limited the flight to approaches in visual conditions. The aircraft was instead radar vectored to Melbourne, and the flight completed in visual conditions.
