    Project Magenta 737 PFD shows 0 instead of 45 kts

    Hi everybody,

    I'm running a 737NG sim on FSX and PM. After some software changes, the left (captains side) PFD shows 0 kts for speed when stationary on the ground, while it should read 45 kts.

    The right (F/O side) PFD DOES show 45 kts. Both work properly when changing speed.

    Does anyone know how to solve this?

    Why should read 45 knots? Because of heavy wind or other reason?

    45 Knots is the minimum airspeed that the airspeed indicator will show at any time (on the 737NG, that is). So when you're stationary (at the gate for example), it will show 45 kts. And no, that's not a flight sim bug. It's like that in the actual plane.

  4. Thanks oal331 thanked for this post

    This is by the pfd.ini file located on your Glass cockpit folder. You have a line: MinimumIAS=0 or something like that. Just update to 45. You can copy the configuration file from your F/O folder too.
