FS2004 - GPS VSR (Vertical Speed Required)

Recommended Posts

On the left side of the NAV page the VSR figure should be the required descent speed to the next waypoint when flying approaches. When on final to the runway the figure I am getting is very low and nowhere near the required descent speed needed to keep me on glideslope to the runway.Anybody else observed this? Am I misunderstanding the function of the VSR figure? Is the readout in hundreds of feet by any chance? This would make it about right.

Funny, this post is 10 yrs old. I have this same or similar ? about the VSR in FSX. Works well between waypoints, but after I select a rwy to land on and activate it, the readings of the VSR aren't at all accurate for the desent to the rwy...WazUp?

 

p.s. also a big help for me is 'altitude callouts' on approach. A little program called: "boeing callouts FSX" found at FlightSim.com, has allowed me to add this feature to any aircraft the doesn't have it.

The Descentometer is one of Glen Copeland's many extremely useful gauges....

 

Now that I'm switching over to XPlane, I'm hoping Glen will update the Descentometer to work within XPlane....(too much to ask for...?...I'm hoping.)rolleyes.png
