Take a look at the panel.cfg file in any a/c that has GPS. Look for the item in brackets that states GPS or it may be something like "windows002". Here is where you will see the line "ident=GPS_PANEL". After that will be a line such as "gauge00=fs9gps!gps_500, 0,0. This line can also have gps_295 which is the lesser model of the GPS. I have changed all of mine that have 295 to 500 - no need to learn two operations. The 0,0 has to do with size etc. You may need to experiment with these. I use mine in the second monitor so even if they are mis-sized I adjust in the second monitor. If your added a/c is using FS default gauges it should work.

Hi,What cliff said. You'll also need to add the window number for it near the top of the panel.cfg file... like soWindow06=GPSMke the 06 the next number available. For instance, is the last window number is 05 then make it like my example, 06.JimEDIT:I want to add that you need to make sure that the section you add down further in panel.cfg file for the GPS Gauge matches the window number you added above... for example{Window06}size_mm=456,378window_size=0.3position=8BACKGROUND_COLOR=0,0,0VISIBLE=0ident=GPS_PANELgauge00=fs9gps!gps_500, 0,0

Here's the shortest panel.cfg I have for a plane, the AeroplaneHeaven Pumpkin....{Window Titles}Window00=Main Panel//--------------------------------------------------------{Window00}file=pumppanel1024.bmp size_mm=1024window_size_ratio=1.000 position=7visible=1ident=0window_size= 1.000, 1.000window_pos= 0.000, 0.000gauge00=pumpgauges!altimeter, 333,669,100,102gauge01=pumpgauges!asi, 587,667,103,102gauge02=pumpnoodle!Attitude-Indicator, 398,521,230[Default View]X=0Y=0SIZE_X=8191SIZE_Y=5058If I wanted to add the GPS to it then it would end up looking like the following...[Window Titles]Window00=Main PanelWindow01=GPS//--------------------------------------------------------[Window00]file=pumppanel1024.bmp size_mm=1024window_size_ratio=1.000 position=7visible=1ident=0window_size= 1.000, 1.000window_pos= 0.000, 0.000gauge00=pumpgauges!altimeter, 333,669,100,102gauge01=pumpgauges!asi, 587,667,103,102gauge02=pumpnoodle!Attitude-Indicator, 398,521,230//--------------------------------------------------------{Window01}size_mm=456,378window_size=0.3position=8BACKGROUND_COLOR=0,0,0VISIBLE=0ident=GPS_PANELgauge00=fs9gps!gps_500, 0,0[Default View]X=0Y=0SIZE_X=8191SIZE_Y=5058After making the addition then I would press SHIFT+2 to open up the GPS 500. All I did for the part under the {Window01} section was copy and paste it in from a default MS aircraft, like the Lear 45.Cheers,Jim
