Nav/com gauge setup

Recommended Posts

Not sure what happened to my original post, it appears to have been lost in the shuffle.Here's my question. I'm trying to setup the C172 Com/Nav 2 to have glide slope capability coupled to an OBS indicator identical to the Com/Nav 1 OBS. I have set the radios in aircraft.cfg to enable GS and now the challenge is to find a compatible gauge for VOR2. I have found an appropriate gauge in XML format and would like to modify it to work with Nav 2 if possible. My 172 had this dual nav/gs capability and I'm trying to reproduce the panel.Also does anyone know if there is a two channel area nav instrument available.Any help in accomplishing this would be appreciated.Dave

Duplicate the XML code as a gauge file with a new name. Then go through the code substituting any id references to VOR 1 or NAV 1 with VOR 2 or NAV 2 to interface it with the NAV 2 radio and audio panel. You still have to modify the radio settings in your aircraft.cfg (make a backup copy) as:[Radios]// Radio Type = availiable, standby frequency, has glide slopeAudio.1 = 1Com.1 = 1, 1Com.2 = 1, 1Nav.1 = 1, 1, 1Nav.2 = 1, 1, 0 //change 0 to 1 to activate GS in gaugeAdf.1 = 1Transponder.1 = 1Marker.1 = 1I have FS Panel Studio which besides placing, sizing, and shaping gauges in a visual GUI for your panel has links to your bitmap editor and also can open a code window for modifying XML.
