Problem with the VOR/LOC/GS Intrument on the First Officer's Flight Intruments Panel

Recommended Posts

Hello,

I'm on the ground on LFBD Airport in France.
I switch both the NAV 1 and NAV 2 on the VOR frequency of SAU ( 116.8 MHz )
I'm in range of the SAU VOR.

On the Captain's Flight Instruments Panel :
I select the direct radial TO inbound the SAU VOR on the Garmin VOR/LOC/GS Indicator : radial 112° TO
The needle of the VOR Indicator 1 & 2 and the direct radial TO on the Garmin VOR/LOC/GS Indicator are coherent and needle centered : 112° for the both (all is OK)

On the First Officer's Panel Instruments, this is not the case :
The needle of the VOR Indicator 1 & 2 indicate 112° (that's OK)
The direct radial TO on the Garmin VOR/LOC/GS Indicator is now 053° (this is wrong)

If I turn the knob to the radial 112°, the needle of Garmin is not centered as it should (this is wrong)

=> Where is the problem ?

In addition, in the previous example, I am at 25.7 Nm from the SAU VOR, QDM 112°

Jean, I recommend you put this information in a trouble ticket at PMDG Product Support. This post in a user forum may be noticed by the DC-6 guys, but the ticket will ensure the problem is documented. Once the problem is validated it goes into a bug tracking system so it doesn't get lost.

 

PMDG Product Support is here: http://support.precisionmanuals.com

Ticket sent to the PMDG Product Support.

Thank's Dan for the method :smile:

 

Have you noticed the same problems on your PMDG DC-6 ?

I am embarrassed to admit I didn't check right side gauges during beta; however, I do see the same problem. Fired up XPL with DC-6 at KIAH and dialed IAH into both Navs and right side is about 40 deg different from course on captain's side.

Hello Dan :smile:

Thank you, you also confirm this problem.

With the open ticket, the PMDG Support will correct this problem. It will probably be fixed in the next update ...
