  1. I know I've mentioned this before and it's a little thing, but why does the cabin altitude knob only have one mouse cursor? There is the clockwise cursor for increasing the cabin altitude. But there is no counter-clockwise cursor for decreasing the cabin altitude. That cursor is a zero. A circle with a line through it.
  2. Just tried to fly an ILS R08 at KPUB and the PMS50 GTN750 version would not capture localizer. I saw there was an update to the PMS50 version but that didn't fix the issue. I'm guessing this is related to the SU9 update that was installed today. I tried flying two ILS instrument patterns at KDEN. One with the GNS model and the other with the PMS50 GTN model. Both starting on runway 34R. Both flew the ILS without any issues. So I'll have to check if this is related to the PMS50 and the SU9 update that was released today. Will try flying some short flights with GPS transitioning over to VLOC at destination. Also, I used HDG and VS after takeoff on both models and everything worked out well.
  3. I'm using 1.7.0 beta and the PMS50 GTN version. When engaging the autopilot in ROL with the aircraft trimmed in a climb the VVI decreases. If I then select HDG which switches over to VS the VS doesn't show up as 0 but instead is negative, sometimes -400 fpm or more.
  4. Using 1.7.0 beta when setting the Altitude Alerter there is no sound when adjusting the 10,000 ft tab. Moving all of the other tabs makes a sound, just not when moving the 10,000 tab.
  5. I downloaded the updated systems.cfg file and tried zeroing out the fuel remaining and that worked. Thank you for that information.
  6. Thank you very much for your response. At least I know I'm not the only one and that it's definitely not working as advertised.
  7. Thank you for the explanation but what you wrote doesn't work. If I set up a flight with 80% fuel load that is according to the simulator about 160 gallons of fuel. Yet when I start the flight the flight computer shows, after pressing the funct button once, 206 gal rem. I want to set 160 gallons. But there is no way to zero out the 206 gal rem. So when I press the button to add gal, and the tank is already full, I get more than a full load of fuel. I want to be able to reset the fuel computer and then add the fuel that I have loaded either through the simulator fuel interface, or manually using the fuel computer. I tried starting a new flight and set the fuel to 0 before selecting fly. Once in my parking space, turning on the battery and pressing the fuel computer FUNC button once it shows 206 gal rem. So I believe I have verified there is no way to set fuel less than the maximum amount. Update. After starting a flight and setting zero fuel as the fuel on board I started the flight in parking. Turned on the battery and pressed the FUNC button on the fuel computer. It showed 206. I pressed the FUNC button again and kept pressing the FUNC button to add zero fuel and pressed enter. Now the fuel remaining shows 150 gal. So I'm really confused as to how this fuel computer operates. I also tried the correction process. The fuel computer was showing 206 gal/rem. I subtracted 206 from 1001 and got 795. Turned the battery off, waited and then back on. Pressed the Function button which showed 206. Pressed it again and entered 795. Turned the battery off and then back on and checked the fuel computer does not show zero gal remaining.
  8. I tried checking this out again this morning. Started a flight KBIL to KBZM with the simulator placing the aircraft on the runway at KBIL with engines running. The fuel computer shows 00.0. Pressing the lower left button changes the display to what was stated above 0-.0. I then reset the flight. This time with the fuel computer showing 00.0 I pressed the function button. The display changed to 206 gal rem. But I had set the fuel at 80 percent when I was selecting the aircraft, livery and fuel for the flight. Checking the fuel pulldown menu it shows 80.1 gal per side or 160.2 gal total, yet the fuel computer shows 206 gal rem. I started a new flight with the same model aircraft (GNS 530), set fuel again to 80% or 160.2 gallons. This time after loading the flight plan using the simulator I selected a parking spot and selected fly. I turned the fuel tanks to left and right main and turned on the battery and alternators. I pressed the function button on the fuel computer and it showed 206 gal rem. Am I doing something wrong? Why is it showing about 45-46 gallons more than I have loaded?
  9. Someone mentioned they could not get the 414 to fly a localizer using the PMS50 version. Some of us tried to reproduce the issue. I discovered that the issue exists with the latest version of the PMS50 software but not with the previous version and was letting them know as this affects people using the 414 beta with the PMS50 GTN.
  10. PMS50 2.1.29 is broken for me. Would not capture the localizer. Going back to version 2.1.28.
  11. Wow, it's like the version number for the PMS50 GTN changes daily. I just updated to 2.1.28 and not 2.1.29 is out. I'll install that and do the ILS again.
