B1900C GPS fonts are to read

Recommended Posts

Hello-

All in all I think the B1900C is a really great plane, but I wanted to say that the GPS fonts are hard to read, the text is rather blurry.

If I remember correctly, the GPS is just ported directly from the default FSX GPS...

On the default planes in FSX, the GPS shows up much crisper and easier to read, when you press shift-3.

This is an FS9 plane, right?

 

Shift-3 should pop up an enlarged GPS on this plane also.

 

Post a screenshot if still problems..

Below is a screen shot of the Baron cockpit with the GPS.  This plane comes with FSX "out of the box."  See how nice and crisp the GPS looks?

 

 

Below is the B1900C with GPS (running under FSX).  I find the text blurry and in some places hard to read.

I went back into FSX and took the Baron cockpit and GPS and shrank the GPS to be about the same dimensions of the GPS which comes with the B1900:

OK, maybe it would help if the GPS window were bigger...

 

Try editing the panel.cfg file with Notepad..

Bert-

I tried this and it is very helpful!  Thanks.  Oddly, the GPS looks the same when you press shift-3, and I had a sinking feeling, but then I noticed that now I get a handle at the top of the GPS window so I can resize it vertically as well as horizontally.  Before, I could only resize it horizontally.  So if you stretch it vertically and horizontally, the GPS looks much clearer.  Thanks again.

Hmm, the popup window should be a lot bigger (1.5 times..)

 

Did you edit the panel.cfg file in the panel folder, or in the panel.vc folder?

 

And there are passenger and cargo versions... just to make life more complicated.

 

Either way, stretching it by hand works also B)
