Phenom 300 Course Needle adjust

Recommended Posts

I have read some of the related topics and I found Bert's fix for the course needle rotation.  I added the missing 'dnor' entries but the course needle still only adjusts in one direction.

I have this in the AUTOPILOT_EMB300V4VC.xml file that is in the panel.gtn- EMB505.Gauge folder-

}

The 'down' rotation works. I imagine that I am missing something.  :wink:

Well, now I don't know if it working or not.  smile.png   I just did an ILS approach into LAX on 24L and the course needle worked.  When I'm in GPS it doesn't move.  I think that I should be able to set the needle to the course that I'm on, but no go.  wink.png
