It would require that you place the gauge into the panel.cfg. Personally, I wouldn't recommend that because with the LDS 767, you have a fully functional FMC.

I know it has a FMC, but I also want the default GPS in it.
Does anyone know what to good for example the code and all that jazz?

Thanks!  Smile

Just out of curiosity, why would you want the default GPS in a Level-D 767?

I'm betting for the simplicity of use for the default GPS - it's very easy to use, whereas the FMC takes some time to learn....


Cheers...

Forgive me for saying so, but IMHO, using the default GPS in the Level-D is like buying a champion racehorse and then cutting its legs off.

FMCs really aren't that hard to learn - take a few hours now and it'll make your flights a lot more enjoyable than just going direct with the GPS. You paid for the panel, and the FMC is a big part of that.

But that's just me.

I'm with Mir.

Trying to use the GPS in the Level D is honestly not worth the trouble. The Leveld D was designed to be flown using the FMC and not the GPS. I should imagine you will run into some probelms.

Download a POSKY 767, and use a freeware panel as an interim solution. If you need any help with anything on the LDS767, drop me a line. Once you know how to fly it properly, it becomes alot more fun!

The FMC is much more realistic than DCT GPS, as a real 767 (or any comercial a/c) certainly wouldn't route DCT GPS. They route via waypoints/VORs and airways as well as using SIDs/STARs where applicable  Smile

It doesn't take too long to learn, and adds a lot to your experience if trying to be realistic. Especially if you plan on doing it later in the real world Big grin
