DME Selection?


Recommended Posts

OK, I know someone is going to get back to me here on the Forum and tell me how to do this, and i am really going to feel stupid because it will be very simple, but, hey, that's happened before...

I want to program a key to switch between DME N1 and DME N2...Seems like it ought to be possible, but I have tried every DME option and still can't get it to work...Offers of assistance welcome...

Thanks,

Steve

With such things all you need to do is enable Event logging in FSUIPC (the Logging tab), then operate the thing on screen with the mouse and see which control, if any, is used by the gauge.

With the default Cessna in FSX the normal "Toggle DME" control does the job with one button/switch -- that's what the gauge uses. But "DME Select" with parameter 1 or 2 (for DME 1 or DME 2) works better for a toggle switch rather than a button or momentary switch.

I suspect you could also have found these controls by simply searching the FS controls list (installed for you by the FSUIPC installer) for "DME".
