Adding Map Icon to older planes question--

Recommended Posts

Just wondering if I can add the Map icon to an A/C without having to create a new window view. Does the map work the same way as the kneeboard, it pops up just using F10. Thanks in advance.Part of the secret of success in life is to eat what you like -M.Twain

Be aware that it is NOT just a pop-up window. It will suspend FS9/FSX and replacew the current view with the map. Once you close the map you will be returned to flight. I rarely use the map in flight because of this. All you'll need to do to add the icon is correctly specify it in a "gaugexx=" line in your panel.cfg file and specify the X,Y,x,y parameters. Look at a panel.cfg of a panel that already contains a map icon to see how it's done. Paul

I've done the gauge##, x,y,x,y. But the icon does not appear on the panel. I've added several gauges to other panels, but I don't get the Map Icon to appear. I understand the Map stops the flight, but I find it handy to get airport info- VOR, Runway info, ect. Just can't seem to get it to work.Part of the secret of success in life is to eat what you like -M.Twain
