    Question Text LCD Display and FS2Phidgets?

    I am thinking about perchasing a text lcd display, but would like to know if these are supported in the fs2phidgets program. I would also like to know what features are supported for these in the fs2phidgets program ( Radios, guages,etc.) and some ideas of what you can do with them? Or things people have done with them.

    Thank in advance
    Frank

    Using one for radios com1 and com2. works great have also displayed n1 and a few other variables but you will need to use the divisor or multipler function to get the decimal place right.

    Text LCD and FS2Phidgets

    When using the Text LCD fo radio display does it just show the frequency "110.90" or is it displayed as " NAV 1 110.90" ?

    Text LCD and Phidgets ?

    Alan

    Any plans on adding user definable prefix or suffix text to the Text LCD in the future so the displays could read " NAV 1 110.90 ". Also I have seen a flap indicator on the web site that looks like it uses a text LCD displaying arrows to indicate flap position. Does this work with FS2Phidgets and could this be used to display other proportional settings like trim position, gear position, etc. or even maybe engine bar graph displays for N1 , Oil Pressure, Etc. Just dreaming of the possibilities

    Frank,

    After I responded I realized that you CAN have "NAV 1 110.90" as output.

    You do this by setting Format setting in FS2PhUIPC.ini file.

    Here is an example of how to do that:

    [NAV1_ACTIVE]
    Offset=0350
    Length=2
    FSType=Frequency
    NavCom=True
    LoValue=108.0
    HiValue=117.95
    Format="NAV1 "0000.0

    Literal must be enclosed in double quotes.
    Otherwise will display 0AV1

    I am planning on having ability with future realease for an indicator on TextLCD.
    Will be handy for rudder trim indications, etc.
