pleaseeeeeee.
Yeah, I second that motion - hopefully the VSD can be implemented, it looks pretty cool.

Yeah, nice article, thanks for sharing. The HUD was mentioned in a couple of threads, it will be in the NG 2.0. As for the VSD which looks really neat, should be possible too because Wilco has done it in their A380 so no FS limitation there. Besides just look at the MD-11 and other PMDG products, if it's there in RL it's going be there in the model too. :(

Why not take it a step or two further. See the following from the Boeing website: "In March 2002, Boeing unveiled its Technology Demonstrator airplane. The aircraft, a 737-900, was outfitted with a suite of new and emerging flight deck technologies that promise to enhance safety, capacity and operational efficiency.These leading-edge technologies -- nine in all -- demonstrate Boeing's global leadership in creating airplanes that reduce noise, enhance safety, decrease flight delays, and improve the ease of operation and efficiency of pilots in the flight deck. These technologies include: * Quiet Climb System (QCS) -- Automatically and consistently reduces engine thrust over noise-sensitive areas, reducing community noise and pilot workload during takeoff. Reductions depend on weight and other takeoff conditions. QCS may allow for increases in passengers and cargo as airlines can be assured of staying below airport noise limits. * Vertical Situation Display (VSD) -- Displays a side view of the airplane's flight path to the flight crew. It enhances safety by showing the airplane's current and predicted flight path relative to terrain. Additionally, it helps the pilot determine a stable and appropriate glide path during approach and landing. * Navigation Performance Scales -- Allows the airplane to navigate through a much narrower airspace envelope with greater accuracy. This can help minimize flight delays and increase airspace capacity. * Integrated Approach Navigation (IAN) -- An enhancement to an approach capability, making the pilot interface and procedures very similar to existing approaches. By allowing a common operational approach procedure, this feature minimizes pilot workload and training, reducing 18 separate approach procedures to one. * GPS Landing System (GLS) -- A highly accurate and reliable satellite-based landing system that will open additional airports and runways to regular service during most weather conditions. This system combines ground-based components with a multi-mode receiver on board the aircraft. * Head-Up Display (HUD) -- Provides "eye-level" critical flight and safety information to the pilot and can reduce takeoff and landing visibility minimums, which may mean fewer delays. * Surface Guidance System (SGS) -- An emerging technology under evaluation that improves taxi safety and airport efficiency during poor visibility and darkness, reducing the risk of runway- and taxi-related incidents. * Enhanced Vision System (EVS) -- An emerging technology under evaluation that uses thermal (infrared) imaging, which allows pilots to see objects at night and in some inclement weather, enhancing safety and potentially reducing delays. * Synthetic Vision System (SVS) -- An emerging technology under evaluation that provides a computer-generated view of the outside world, synthesizing easy-to-follow cues for takeoff, landing, and taxi guidance.Many of the new technologies are available as options on the 737. Three of the features -- Surface Guidance System, Enhanced Vision System, and Synthetic Vision System -- are more developmental, and Boeing is not yet committed to having them certified and implemented.View how the 737 stacks up against its competitor when it comes to technology." Compliments of the Boeing Aircraft Company and available on their website.You can view how all of the various systems function on the Boeing Website. Since the 737NG is the most technologically advanced A/C in the World today, it would be nice if some of the above could be incorporated into the NGX or possibly the NGXI.....:)Regards,jackAnyways, I am waiting patiently for it's arrival in any form whatsoever.

I want the vertical profile! :(
actually what would be really good and a lot more use to every day pmdg users woul dbe an update to the FMS software from version 10.4 (current) to current day 10.8that has more functionality and allows such things as RNP approach and departure (dont get that mixed up with RNP enroute) and FANS 1 capability.I think there is a new upgrade coming for EFB (but dont quote me on that)

Actually you don't have to wait 10 years - it is NOW!. Today pilots are flying Gulfstream G550 and even much smaller general aviation aircraft like Cirrus Perspective SR22 GTS equipped with synthetic vision. Chelton pioneered synthetic vision and it has been in use for many years including on many high-end homebuilts.
Since the 737NG is the most technologically advanced A/C in the World today,
I would be really careful with such hyperbolic statements, specially when they in fact may not be true.
