gps pops up on pan view


Recommended Posts

Hi everyone....

 

A few days ago, I noticed that the GPS would pop up when I used the hat switch to pan around the cockpit, or even on exterior view. I know I must have changed a setting somewhere, but I do not recall anything which would explain this strange behavior. To be more specific, If a pan slightly to the left (never the right) the GPS pops up on the left side of the screen. But, if i continue the pan beyond Point X (where the gps pops up) it disappears. I have looked at my fsuipc settings but have not seen anything unusual, at least as far as I can tell. I hope someone can give me an idea about how to get back to normal hat switch behavior. This is very annoying. Thanks

You evidently have some conflicting or additional assignment, possibly in FS but more likely in FSUIPC. Hat switches are programmed as axes for "pan view", but FSUIPC also allows them to be programmed as 4 or 8 buttons. So, check the Buttons & switches tab in FSUIPC as well.

 

If neither of these things I can only think that the hat operation is also causing one of your other buttons or switches to operate. To check that, try enabling Button logging in FSUIPC and look at the log when the problem occurs. If you also enable Event logging it would show the actual FS event or control being sent.
