    MCP questions

    Hi all,

    I have two questions:

    1. what is the offset for toggling HPA and inch?

    2. When toggling between MACH and SPD (c/o button), the mach number is
    always .45, no matter what speed in mph I had set before. Shouldn't the MACH

    number in the display be an equivalent of the mph speed dialed in befor the

    toggle?

    This happens on the Software MCP, no EPIC or FS-Communicator software
    active.

    Thanks,
    Hans

    Hi Hans,

    >1. what is the offset for toggling HPA and inch?


    I use this
    $542A, Length 2 // GC_Keys_Control
    you have to write dec. 45 to this Offset for toggling.

    Best Regards

    Thanks, Thomas!

    Just for clarification - the offset document says for 542A "Glass Cockpit
    and General Aviation IFR "Keyboard Interface" (2 bytes)"
    and does not really explain what else to do. Why 45?

    Can you shed some light on that?
    Thanks in advance,

    Hans

    Hi Hans,

    45 is the ASCII value for the key "Insert" which toggles HPA / Inches.

    Pse see also the keyboard commands for the GC.

    Hope this clarifies it.
