I went back and looked back at the "GAUGE390IA" file.  The LVAR "L:ASD_BTN_C2_STARTER1" isn't even used.  It must be a dummy variable for mouse use within the model.  To control the starter buttons just use the normal "Toggle Starter(1 or 2)" command in FSUIPC and assign a button or momentary switch.  No need to map an LVAR for that one.

I did it with a spring loaded switch and it works perfectly.

A combination of LVAR "L:ASD_BTN_C2_STARTER1"  ASD_BTN_C2_STARTER1_TIMER and Simconnect Starter eng 1 starts the engine OK

Other interesting Lvars

SWITCH_DO228_L_PILOT_HEAT
SWITCH_DO228_R_PILOT_HEAT

means Left and right PITOT Heat..

ASD_SWITCH_GPU_EMB100

mapped to a switch ,will connect/disconnect the GPU ( no need for Shf 6)!!

Hi aeronauta,

i recently optained the Premier IA.
Actually im trying to map al FGS Buttons to my Saitek Multiplanel but there a quite some issues left.

Have you already managed to create Spad.Next a profile for the Premiere IA that has all FGS Buttons (HDG, FLC, VS, NAV, VNAV, ALT, APR and the Speed, Heading and Altitude dials maped to the Saitek Panel ?

If yes, please publish that profile to share it with me.

Do you have a clue what LVAR or SIMCONNECT Events are to be mapped to handle those FGS Buttons?

Cheers
Stephan
