F1 GTN 750 not showing distance to VORs

Recommended Posts

I recently purchased the F1 GTN Complete package and installed it into FSX SE.  Recently when flying in one of my GTN 750 equipped aircraft I noticed when putting in a VOR frequency, my HSI course indicator works correctly but the GTN 750 does not show the distance to the VOR.  I could have sworn this was working correctly until recently and I'm trying to find out what I did that could have caused this to happen.  I have uninstalled all of the aircraft with the instrument panel integrated GTN 750s, Uninstalled the GTN Complete package. Rebooted and reinstalled the GTN Complete package and the aircraft running the installations as administrator.  The issue still exists.  Did I imagine it working before or is this the way the GTN 750 is supposed to work?  Please advise.

Did you switch the GTN from GPS to VLOC?

Yes I did.  When a flight plan is loaded the lower right corner shows the distance to the next waypoint.  If I change over to VLOC and manually tune in a station the distance in the lower right corner does not change from the flight plan distance.

Tuning the VOR is exactly that - tuning the Nav radio. If you want the distance either make the VOR a waypoint e.g. DTO or in a flight plan, or edit a User Field in each corner of the map display and select the option to display dist/radial to VOR.

Thanks for the information.  There is a lot to learn with this GTN 750.  I did discover the ability to change the corner fields and have set the lower right from waypoint distance to VOR/LOC - Tuned VOR/LOC Info.  Thank you again.
