It may be that that particular gauge is not coded to work only when the power is on.If it is in xml format then you can change it yourself.Otherwise you would have to find a replacement gauge or make one.

It is a graphic issue. The GPS 'light' has two states, off & on. If it is ON then the BMP will look like the GPS light is lit even if there is no power. Flight Simulator does just that, Simulates not replicates and sometimes rather poorly.

It's very easily fixed fyi. Find the gauge on the panel.cfg and open it up and show the snippet of code here and I can tell you what to fix.

^ That's how? In the event that it's an XML.

Hi,You can place a dark bitmap in front of the lighted text using an xml gauge(and draw_order..=gauge.., gauge.. if necessary)code: bitmap visible when all electrics offJan

The error can be also corrected by using a resource editor on the FSX Cessna.dll file in the Gauges folder to change bitmaps 21051, 21551, and 61551 to paint out NAV.I use the free XN Resource Editor.THIS IS AT YOUR OWN RISK - BACKUP THE FILE FIRST
