    GPS/Nav switch

    Folks,

    On a GA aircraft panel such as the default C172SP, there is a switch that basically selects what is going to slave to the autopilot....either the VOR1 or the GPS. I have looked but could not find in controls where to assign a switch or button to this.

    Has anyone developed a way to have a toggle switch for this purpose?

    I do believe that is a panel device. Meaning you may need to use FSUIPC to get that to work . I don't think it's part of the main FSX key commands. In any case I think FSUIPC is your best shot. Someone that has the registered version might be able to hip to you the details.

    That switch is Offset 132C, I use it for my autopilot panel. Since it is an offset, you can program a key in FSUIPC. It is also a key command that is settable in FSX (under radios NAV 1/GPS toggle). Hope this helps.
