Integrate in NAV/GPS
Jun 3rd, 2018, 2:36am
 
I was curious if you ever looked into integrating the INS into the GPS or NAV CDI since the data is there DTK and XTK error.

No, mainly because it wouldn't be realistic at all.

> or NAV CDI
This can be done but I'm not providing any CIVA-integrated HSI gauges.
Note you could develop you own if needed (in C/C++ or XML).

When I said integrate into GPS what I was meaning was to replace the GPS input to the HSI such as Flight1/RXP GPS units do when you select GPS.  I actually think this would be an accurate depiction of operation of an INS unit.   So no custom gauges should be required, but then I'm not a programmer so I could be completely wrong. I just figured if they could do it with a third party GPS you'd be able Todo the same thing as the pertinent information is there. DTK, XTK error, distance etc.

What you're suggesting is a good idea but as far as I know you cannot "override" the GPS, which is built in the simulator.

I don't doubt you are wrong at all.  It has me wondering how RXP and F1 manage it with their third party GPSs.  They utilize the simulator CDI function to switch from Navaids to their GPS and totally disregards whatever the inbuilt simulator GPS says.  Oh well.

Cheers
