Did you create this panel.cfg? I ask because we have gauges that we install when we create a panel.cfg for our GNS units.

 

The default sim gauges will never reflect LPV vertical guidance unless we hack the code... which isn't going to happen.

 

We have provided replacement gauge. The file is MPI_CDIGauge.gau and contains replacement VOR instruments.

I probably did create that panel and your gps unit shows up  when i select the  gps from the menu.. ..Maybe i should just reinstall your product into fsx again and the MPI_CDIGaige will reinstall

I dont mind doing this as long as i don't have to reauthorize  because i have no authorization left .

I said nothing about needing to reinstall anything.

 

Simply check to see if the MPI_CDIGauge.gau file is installed in the Gauges folder.

yes is it is in this folder

Ok... I've cleaned up your panel.cfg... a few words of wisdom:

 

1 - Do not run more than one 'brand' of GNS in your panel. If you're using RXP, ONLY RXP, if you're using Mindstar, ONLY Mindstar... don't mix and match. That goes for the default FS GNS as well.

2 - Keep your window entries in order... you ended up with two entries for Window02.

 

Here's an updated one that uses the VOR gauges:

Hi Ed

 

BTW. in case i did not say it earlier . really appreciate your help with this...

Il try this   Pete

So i have been busy working away on LVP approaches.

Seems to me that even with an updated database and minstar 172 i cannot get the 172 to follow the glideslope on a LVP . I would expect the aircraft to follow the GS down after the FAF and gs intercept.

In my case i get the gps was approach. ( lap ) . set the a/p to APP and ensure the approach is activated.

Every time i try this the plane blows through the gs and never follows the gs down to DA . ( I've tried it both ways with alt enabled and disabled ). 

Any thoughts

(btw I'm doing this on the mindstar texture 172) in fsx

There is no autopilot connection, sorry. That would require either we provide a custom autopilot or we hack the sim itself.

Hey ED... correct me if im wrong but i thought that i read  somewhere that one of the features of the mindstar gps 4/5 series  was that it would fly lpv approaches with certain aircraft and give a gs indication ... Now maybe i misunderstood and that is fine... I will simply use it for lnav and lnav +v .. I am simply working to understand the functionality .  I also understand that this functionality only would work in certain aircraft... Regardless i like the product... and thanks again...

I think you're taking the term 'fly LPV approaches' and applying that as if it's an autopilot. It is not an autopilot, it's a navigation unit. It provides guidance, but does not actually control anything. It can not drive the sim's built-in glideslope needle without a hack. That's not going to happen. Since it doesn't drive the built-in needle value, then the built-in autopilot can't fly the glidepath.

 

We do provide access to the glidepath needle value (it's a glidepath, not a glideslope) for developers to utilize. We also provide our own VOR gauges to display the nav needles correctly in other aircraft.

 

Absolutely none of this is an autopilot.

 

If you were flying the default 172 with our panel mod, then it should have a new VOR 1 instrument that is tied to our GNS units. To be certain, simply open the panel.cfg for our panel mod and look for MPI_CDIGauge!KI209. If that's in place, then when you are flying a WAAS approach (indicated with LPV) then you should see the vertical guidance needle come alive as you near the glidepath.

 

So far, I'm getting the impression you're expecting the autopilot to fly the glidepath... and without a custom autopilot that pays attention to our glidepath variable, that's not going to happen.

Thanks you for the clarification , your description of my expectaion was 100 correct expectation 

 

"I think you're taking the term 'fly LPV approaches' and applying that as if it's an autopilot. It is not an autopilot, it's a navigation unit. It provides guidance, but does not actually control anything. It can not drive the sim's built-in glideslope needle without a hack. That's not going to happen. Since it doesn't drive the built-in needle value, then the built-in autopilot can't fly the glidepath."

 

Your clarification is perfect and in fact I did do something correctly as  the mindstar  gauge is  in the plane as i do get the needle indication. Thank you 

and thanks for helping me to understand the limitations.

 

Regards     Pete

Hello,

 

Ed,  Is your KAP140 capable of WAAS autopilot guidance?  I am interested in this gauge.

Does your KAP140 work with all A/C? Even those that do not have an default autopilot.

 

thanks,

 

Steve
