Garmin 500

Recommended Posts

Can anyone help please? I  am no guru as far as computers are concerned and I am  73 years old (I have learned using computers at the age of 55) but love using my flight simulator x.

Lately have purchased the  King Air 350 fpc and I have managed to add  to it, an FMC (which I purchase separately) and now  I am trying to change the 'FP Map 100' to a Garmin 500 which for me is more user friendly and has much more information like nearest airport etc

Have tried introducing the

 

[Window02]

size_mm=456,378
window_size=0.5
position=8
BACKGROUND_COLOR=0,0,0
VISIBLE=0
ident=GPS_PANEL
zorder=4
 
gauge00=fs9gps!gps_500,            0,0
 
BUT wouldn't work. Could it be because I have not removed the FP Map 100, I honestly have tried many options but so far no luck.
Any help please???
Thanks in anticipation

Hi,

 

You can add any Gauge you like, as long as it's programmed according to standard rules. I would no use window02 for this, but the choice it up to you. Unfortunately, all Shft-1 to Shft-9 are taken, so you have to give up one and change it for your new gauge, because I presume that you use your gauge more often than one of the other 2-D panels.

 

Since I am on P3Dv3.4 the weather radar of the B350i does not work. I use the AS16-ASCA weather radar instead under Shft-4 [Window03]. It works fine.

You need to add the size (height and width) for the G500:

 

gauge00=fs9gps!gps_500, 0,0,456,378
