Put FO ND on lower EICAS?

Recommended Posts

Hi folks,

is there a way to put the right Navigation Display on the lower central display?

Using the Captains's switch to put the ND on the lower CRT, it puts the Captain's ND on the lower CRT. Using the First Officers switch to put the ND on the lower CRT, it also puts the Captain's ND on the lower CRT.

Is this the only way it works?

 

As a side question: I've never been on a -400 with LCDs but to they keep the naming convention with "CRT" on the glareshield and main panel?

Are you putting both Captain's and F/O's Lower IDU switches to ND at the same time? The Captain's has priority.

No, only FOs switch. Captains switch remains on NORM.

If someone can reproduce this, maybe we could submit a ticket to PMDG.... unless it's like that because of FSX limitations?

By the way, Max, are you talking about the 3D screens or the 2D pop-ups?

I noticed this as well. And so off to airliners(dot)net I went. And indeed, even with the LCD displays, it says "CRT" below the brightness knobs. Must have been easier to keep the same part number I guess? Probably something to do with the fact that you walk into a hardware store and a fastener costs $0.10 but if you walk into an FAA certified hardware store that same fastener is $25.00.

Alright folks,

I've been to a couple of 747-400 cockpits in the last days and it is definitely a bug in the PMDG. Turning the Switch on the FO side displays the FO ND on the lower display, not the captains one.

Should I submit a ticket or is PMDG support staff reading this?

I did also find out that the retrofitted LCD cockpits keep the CRT designation. So that's fine.

Always submit via the official portal with any and all references to manuals, images, and so on. Things are not guaranteed to be seen by us here. This is for user-to-user support and interaction.
