    Question Question concerning GPS in fs9

    Helle to all!
    I'm in the process of building my own flightcenter.
    Right now I'm trying to find out if there is any way
    to remove the bezel from the gps in FS9? The only
    thing I want displayed is the moving map section,
    no bezel and no buttons. After that I like to alter the
    size too, so there is no black space around the map.
    Does anyone know if this is possible and if yes, how?
    Thank you in advance to the people who'll take the
    time to respond.

    Frank

    Thank you joseph!
    This is how far I am at this point (see pic)

    Now, does anybody know how to get rid off all the blackness around the map?
    I cannot just resize it in FS9 to fit the screen. I run FS9 over 3 screens in extended mode, this means if I resize it, the sides of the window will partially be visible in my main screen. I myself thought about resizing the window in my panel cfg file. Make the window smaller and not the gauge itself, and then risize it again in FS2004. Does anybody have the right solution for me? Thanks!

    Hi Frank

    Undock the gps , resize the gauge to be oversized for your gps monitor, then drag the image on the gps screen
    Then save the flight

    Another solution is ,may be ,to play with gps dimentions in Panel cfg
    There is a software addon called Fspanel studio ,making the task easyer
    otherwice just try to play with the numbers

    Your Gps looking very cool--congratulations

    Joseph
