GPS in FS 2004


Recommended Posts

Will the Cirrus II console work correctly with the FS 2004 Garmin GPS?

Sorry, I cannot answer questions on future products yet. Ask again in August or so. I may have time to look at GPS programming some months *after* FS9 release, but certainly none before.

However, if FS9 provides the controls (FS2002 didn't), the GPS buttons on the PFC Avionics stack could be re-programmed by the user through FSUIPC in any case. All PFC buttons and knobs can be programmed through FSUIPC, the only thing stopping the GPS being used this way in FS2002 is that Microsoft provided no controls for it at all.

The Cirrus II itself, with no Avionics stack, will never be amenable to a GPS control console of course. It just hasn't got the right buttons and knobs.
