    Lightbulb GNS430: Toggle between COM and NAV freq select using link2fs

    Hi all,
    I am building an avionics panel to be used together with Alabeo's DA40. (my flying club owns a DA40, that's why...)

    Most funcions can be realized using the built-in functions of link2fs. One function I was so far unable to find out how to realize is the "Push C/V"-button of the GARMIN GNS430. This button is used to toggle between COM frequency input and NAV frequency input. (It is the push button of the left dual rotary encoder.)

    The FSUIPC log doesn't show any activity when de button is pressed and I couldn't find a shortcut in FSX.

    Does anyone have an idea how to realize this function using link2fs? - It is a very essential function...
    Any idea is highly welcome!

    Many thanks and kind regards,
    Frank

    Hello Les,

    Kind regards,

    Frank,
    1. Have you tried a mouse macro in fSUIPC?.
    It may be hard coded and the other option is:
    2. Is to look in the Aircraft folder and see if RXP GNS430 integration is possible. Then purchase this as i think they
    have keyboard shortcuts which can be coupled thru FSUIPC to joystick buttons.
    Sorry that is all i can think of unless someone else has done what you want and can assist.
    Les
    P.S if you can add the Reality XP GNS530 it will no doubt give you more options
    than the one fitted to the DA40.
