nav radio tuning

Recommended Posts

Hi tinmouse fans,I find that when I click on the nav radios they don't change frequency. Anyone else have this problem? Is there something I'm doing wrong? The comm radios can be tuned this way, as can the ADF.

Thanks for the reply Bob, but right clicking doesn't work.

Actually, for the NAV radios, the MHz (freq before the decimal) are adjusted by left-clicking on the left side of the left knob to decrease, and on the right side of the left knob to increase. Mouse should give you a "+" or "-" hand.For the portion to the right of the decimal point, left-click on the left or right side of the right knob.Bob ScottATP IMEL Gulfstream II-III-IV-V L-300Santiago de Chile

Hi Bob,Yes, I do everything you say and it all works as you say it does. I even get a clicking sound, but unfortunately the numbers just don't roll over. I got around this problem by substituting the radio stack from the default 737. This works although the authenticity is reduced a little. Also the DMEs don't work. But it's a small price to pay for being able to use such a great panel. My thanks to you and everyone else who has worked on it. Peter

Peter,"Actually, for the NAV radios, the MHz (freq before the decimal) are adjusted by left-clicking on the left side of the left knob to decrease, and on the right side of the left knob to increase. Mouse should give you a "+" or "-" hand."As Bob stated, the procedure should work.When you click the "-" (minus sign), the non-decimal frequency will decrease between the values of 117 and 108. When you click the "+" (plus sign), the non-decimal frequency will increase between the values of 108 and 117. Just continue to click the plus or the minus signs until you get the value which you want. You cannot change the individual digits as you do in the default 737 radio.I hope this helps,

No, as I said, I understand this completely,and it simply doesn't work. I get a plus or minus hand at the appropriate places, but nothing changes when I click the mouse. I do get an audible click but no numbers move. This is generally the same principle on which the ADF and comm. radios are tuned, right? Those radios I can tune. The NAV radios I cannot. I have installed Cockpit Commander which someone else on this site recommended. This tunes all the radios easily. I like flying more than programming computers so I'm going to stay with this work-around unless someone presents another solution to tuning the radios. I don't imagine you or anyone else wants to keep speculating on what's wrong with my system and since no one can get onto my machine to try to diagnose what's wrong, it's probably best just to leave it at that.Thanks for your time. I appreciate it.Peter

 I have the same problem. That is, in NAV 1 digits are not changed. The Law of the mouse button only enables the window frame and the left has sound but does not move the radio frequency. NAV radio works Ok.
