Datarefs

Recommended Posts

Can we have a dataref in the next update which shows Master GPS.i.e.

 

RXP/radios/indicators/master_device

 

where 0 is default GPS

           1 Reality XP GPS 1

           2 Reality XP GPS 2

 

Also dataref for track bearing.

 

RXP/radios/indicators/hsi_bearing_deg_trk_pilot

 

Thank you,

Tom.

It's already there and should be visible via dataref editor (subtract XPlane mag var to get true angle):

"RXP/radios/indicators/hsi_bearing_deg_mag_pilot"

 

As for the gps master, it is already there and versatile:

"RXP/radios/indicators/gps_master_device"

 

Write a 32 bits id value there to select the master with this id, or write 0 to select default GPS as the master.

 

The IDs are very easy to remember: each 32 bits id is a 4 char value, so just read/write the 32 bits like the first 4 chars of a string. The GTN and the GNS (coming up) support these valid IDs:

 

G431, G432, G501, G502, G531, G532, G651, G652, G751, G752

 

In addition to the dataref, which is handy, there are also custom commands to select the device directly (0 is default, 1 and 2 are RXP's)

 

"RXP/GPS/MASTER_DEVICE_0"
"RXP/GPS/MASTER_DEVICE_1"

"RXP/GPS/MASTER_DEVICE_2"

 

and this command to cycle through:

 

"RXP/GPS/MASTER_DEVICE_NEXT"

I can see "RXP/radios/indicators/gps_master_device"

G751   825571143

G752   842348359

G651   825570887

G652   842348103

and I can work with this.

Can you give me more information on "RXP/radios/indicators/gps_discrete_out" I can see it holds a lot of bits like MSG, GPS VLOC etc.

Some off the codes i am getting, 8264, 9280, 9288, 9296, 9544, 9552, 40972 and 40964.

 

About the TRACK, on the display unit on the Bell 429, changing CRS to TRK when going from NAV to GPS as source for OBS.

I am not after TRUE heading but TRACK to next waypoint.

If you mean DTK (desired track), the default X-Plane one should be indicating the correct value then.

 

As for the discrete_out, which one are you after and for what purpose?

My fault should be DTK.

 

 

As for the discrete_out, which one are you after and for what purpose?

 

 

"MSG", "TERM" and "APR"

 

To show MSG on main display unit in Bell 429.

 

On another note, will you be activating the weather icon.
