Garmin 1000

Recommended Posts

Hello!Does anyone know if it is possible to set the Garmin 1000 map "north up" instead of the default "track up" setting? I have tried to make settings in the menu but with no success thusfar. It seems as though this was one more setting which is available in the real Garmin 1000 but not in the sim version.Armand.

It is indeed possible, but not without editing the XML script to add that as a feature.Within the <CustomDraw> container, add:
					<CustomDrawParam id="TrackUp" Name="TrackUp">						<Value>(L:NorthUpView,bool)</Value>					</CustomDrawParam>

Then somewhere within the <Mouse> section, add a routine to set the value of your custom (L:NorthUpView,bool) variable to either zero or one...Set to True (1) if the map should be drawn with the track of the aircraft facing up. False (0) gives North facing up.

Dear Mr. Bill,Thank you very much for your reply. I have never tried to make a script writing so far. Here is what I have done:-set up SDK and its new version sp2;-found the following line: C:\Program Files\Microsoft Games\Microsoft Flight Simulator X SDK\SDK\SimObject Creation Kit\Panels and Gauges SDKNow, please tell me which file I should open next and where exactly on the script page I should add your solution. It seems so complicated for a newbie.Best regards. Armand
