OBS1 keybinds not working

Recommended Posts

Just started with the GTN 650.

I like to use 2 keyboard keybinds to twist OBS1 up and down.

On two aircraft I've tested that have an HSI, after booting up the 650, the OBS1 keybinds don't work anymore when the CDI is selected to GPS. OBS1 keybinds do work when in VLOC. 

I can still twist it normally with the mouse in both GPS and VLOC mode. 

If I deactivate the 650 plugin, OBS1 keybind works normally again.

The two planes are:

-default laminar B58 Baron

-Carenado Baron with REP

 

I tested the default C172 and the OBS keybinds still work with the 650 in GPS mode

Any way to fix this on the Baron?

 

Xplane v11.32r1

Hi,

Could this just be the way the aircraft is configured? I'm away from a simulator PC right now but I know there is a Plane Maker setting which basically say 'sync the HSI course to the GPS' (which seems equivalent to the GTN setting 'HSI (auto-slew)'. Is it possible the latest XPlane 'locks' the shortcut key in this case? Or maybe the key combination is already defined to another function with the B58 and the Carenado Baron (if any)?

Further to this but I'll have to cross check, I believe there could be different key bindings for VOR1 OBS and HSI OBS, in which case, depending on the aircraft and whether or not it has both an HSI and a VOR, or just one or the other, this might work differently?!?

I don't believe so, because when I disable the 650, the obs1 key bind works with both VLOC and GPS. 

The only variable is turning on the 650 plugin.

This doesn't tell anything: when you enable our GNS/GTN, we must use the X-Plane SDK 'override gps', and when we do, everything works differently because X-Plane works differently under these conditions.

I didn't have time to further test this today, but this is worth exploring.

Ok sorry I'm in over my head. You're right, there is an "OBS HSI" keybind... smh I don't know how I missed that

"OBS HSI" keybind works perfectly in VLOC & GPS! 

so no problem after all. 😁

kinda interesting that "OBS1" and "OBS HSI" can turn the same knob.
