I'm not sure, I think it allows to select Nav 1 or 2 set for use with the AP navigation modes (VOR,LOC). There are no C variables to monitor the selection, but at least with FS9 the XML variable "AUTOPILOT NAV SELECTED" seems to do the job.Arne Bartels

Not much point in my post but to confirm Arne is right... It allows you to specify which Nav radio the AP uses for navigational modes.--Jon

Hi all, would somebody kindly explain the use ofAP_NAV_SELECT_SET in XML?Do you still use AP_NAV1_HOLD_ON to turn the function on, and then use1(>K:AP_NAV_SELECT_SET) or 2 (>K:AP_NAV_SELECT_SET)with a seperate button to select which radio to use?cheers,nick
