Smart callouts

Recommended Posts

according to the intro manual if smart callouts are selected they sound only when the plane is on a G/S, but they dont sound.


Honeywell in its manual says the opposite.

The reality is the So called 'smart callout' options should be as follows:

a. Set to always be On always. 2500, 1000 & 500 callouts.  (2500 callout does have different options)

b. Set to be Off always. 2500, 1000 & 500 callouts.

c In the case of the '500' call set to be 'Smart' when glideslope or localizer not received, or glideslope or localizer deviation greater than two dots.

I can't post any reference here due to copyright issues.

so what is the reason that PMDG keeps writing the opposite in the manuals (NGX, T7, QOS)?
