My wish: The Nav/GPS button

First of all I love the aircraft. It is a lot of fun to fly and reminds me of the good old days lol. What I sometimes like if a more modern cockpit to fly in, especially when I'm feeling a little lazy. I was able to modify the aircraft to the point where the default 737-800 panel is used instead of the one that is shipped with the 737-200. The only issue I have is that the NAV/GPS switch will not work with the FSX default cockpit and furthermore, the guage seems to be part of the model instead of a guage that can be moved around. Can you at least make it so it is more of an option instead of a required piece of equipement or at leat add it to the guages in the panel so that I can add to the deafault 737 panel that I am using. Thank you.

I'm a bit confused. Is this the 737 Exterior (v0.1) you are referring to? Or the 737-200 Base Pack (v1.0) and Expansion Models?

If the 737 Exterior, there is already a NAV/GPS Switch on the Autopilot.

If the latter, open the panel.cfg in Notepad, and change the [Window03] entry from this:

[Window03]
Background_color=0,0,0
size_mm=250,100
position=2
visible=0
ident=12103

gauge00=Captain_Sim.x737.G03!G03_ap,  0,0,250,100


to this:

[Window03]
Background_color=0,0,0
size_mm=270,100
position=2
visible=0
ident=12103

gauge00=Captain_Sim.x737.G03!G03_ap,  20,0,250,100
gauge01=Cessna!Nav GPS Switch,  0,0,20,20
gauge02=Cessna!Nav_GPS_Annunciator,  0,20,20,20


It will look like this:

(but in the A/P will be in the top right corner). The green box shows the NAV/GPS Switch and Annunciator.
