I am using the Boeing Glass Cockpit, MCP and EFIS, in my 737-700 home cockpit.

My problem is that the EICAS analogue Flaps display is showing the wrong Flap positions.

There are some flap numbers missing - the pointer seems to go to the correct position (sometimes in between numbers), the flap positions as displayed are not correct.

I select the 737-700 within the CDU, so I assued this would set the flaps correctly within the GC but apparantly not.

I can't find any flap options in the (ESC) Menu for Glass Cockpit.

Thanks in advance for any help. :D

Could anyone advise where this is corrected.

I can t help you but I found something on the pm site:
There are some tricks too in the documentation section of www.projectmagenta.com (http://www.projectmagenta.com) , see at "aircraft configuration files"

Hope it helps:?:

Hi David,

You need to set the flap positions in the 737 file for the CDU! Edit it with notepad, you can't miss it. Hope that helps.

Thanks very much folks, I'm sorry I missed this one in the files, sometimes you can't see for looking!

Cheers, :)
