OK - found it in the Gauge Update file:

<!-- Fix pitot heat -->

(A:PITOT HEAT, bool)   (L:ASD_BTN_PC12_PROBES,number)  !=  if{ (>K:PITOT_HEAT_TOGGLE) }

Oh man first Carenado gives us a gtn 750 equipped v2 pc12............. More importantly the gurus @Bert Pieke and @autogyro got their hands on it....... This plane is gonna be good! @autogyro will you be updating your itt supermod for version 2????  Im scared to download version two because i love how awesome my dual gtn 750, roland wx equipped bird flys with your current mod..... I do want that actual 750 gauge in the vc though...... So torn

The clickspot on the top of the GTN 750 is  awkward and it would be great to have a key based 'pop up' for it. 

Is that possible?

Great to hear that you guys, Bert and autogyro, are already having a look at the new version. Thanks in advance for that! The new version actually looks very nice. It has much better performance (especially less stutters) on my system than the old one. With your mods, this is gonna be a hell of a plane! My favorite Carenado by far.

Yeah, might have to look into purchasing this one if Bert, autogyro and others can improve things with their mods.

I moved the GTN popup to Window01 in the panel.cfg file.

Then I can pop it up with a shift+2 combination (which I use for all my airplanes and have mapped to a yoke button)

Shift+9 should work in the Carenado version, try it.

If you would like to try mine:

Back up your panel.cfg file and make these changes.. (I've also disabled the Avidyne unit)

Bert - Is the Avidyne just black (off) with your disable or is the entire gauge gone? I was wondering if we could put in those rxp blank panels in place of the Avidyne?

Can anybody comment on the sound improvement mentioned I their list of items for this V2, and in particular the engine sound outside and more importantly inside the cockpit?

To me the engine sounds were very lame, and didn't compare to the Flight-1 version. How is it now?

Thanks Bert. You've only had the download a day and you're answering requests!  

As you might have guessed from my ID picture I'm pretty keen on this one.

Thanks for the update Bert. GNS530 still turns off when i switch panel lights on. I've received an email from Carenado, They can't reproduce this issue. They ask me to uninstall and reinstall but it changes nothing....

Make a YouTube video of it and send it over to them. I had to do that for a Dornier 228 issue and the moment I made the video (and explained what I was doing, as well as showing all keyboard/screen inputs) they acknowledged that they would look into it.

Most of the flight simulation community is pretty toxic and gets easily worked up about little things. Just go into it knowing that.

Hi all,

I like the V2.0. I took a flight today from KGTF to KGPI. Took off in heavy snow and about FL050 lost airspeed indicator. Leveled off at FL130 TRQ 37.1 -19 OAT. Max ground speed indicated on GTN was 197 KTS. I did ILS at KGPI and about FL040 airspeed came alive and completed landing. From above in the thread the pitot switch was mentioned. Would their be any problem with taking the GAUGEPC12 from the Bert's MOD and placing it in the panel file of V2.0. In the new version there is nothing about pitot in the Gauge-update.XML and in Bert's MOD. If I do that will it mess anything up?

Thanks for the help,

 

Dick

I've got a new care package ready for anyone who would like to try it.

PM me with your email address.

I've included the previous fixes, like Pitot Heat and duplicate clicksounds,

and new fixes for the GNS530 VOR2 info and other minor things.
