Title: FSX GPS USE
Post by Kent188 on Dec 1st, 2018 at 8:02pm
Is there a way to get to the FSX GPS screen in the B-52 driver?
To pull it up and navigate with it while flying, like the other aircraft in FSX?
Thank you.

Backup the panel.cfg file BEFORE you make any changes!!!!

Edit the panel.cfg found in the FSX\SimObjects\Airplanes\CS_B52\panel folder:

1. Under [Window Titles], add Window02=GPS like this:

[Window Titles]
Window00=Main
Window01=Simicons
Window02=GPS


2. Change the size_mm=24,96 in [Window01] to size_mm=24,120, and add gauge01=SimIcons1024!GPS Icon, 0,96,24,24 under gauge00, to add the GPS icon to the Simicons panel. Like this:

[Window01]
size_mm=24,120
background_color=1,0,1
position=6
visible=1
ident=12101
gauge00=Captain_Sim.b520.icons!icons,0,0,24,96
gauge01=SimIcons1024!GPS Icon, 0,96,24,24


3. Add [Window02] like this:

[Window02]
background_color=0,0,0
size_mm=456,378
position=0
visible=0
ident=GPS_PANEL
gauge00=fs9gps!gps_500, 0,0,456,378
gauge01=SimIcons1024!GPS Icon, 7,17,20,20

gauge01 adds the small gps icon on the GPS unit (clicking on it closes the GPS)

And if you click on the attached image, it looks like that when both the Simicons, and GPS panels are open. ;)


Note. I use Windows Notepad to open and edit .cfg files.
