Manual Fixes - Own Position

Recommended Posts

I don't have a 3-position switch on my flight stick, and haven't been able to figure out a way to do manual nav updates by flying over nav-type waypoints. I've tried several combinations of the 3 positions (individually mapped to different buttons) but haven't had any luck.

 

What is the correct sequence for T0, T1,and TV for doing an update by overflying a visual reference?

I also don't have 3-pos switch, I've mapped them to separate buttons. To make the manual fix, turn the radar off, press T1 before overflying the position (waypoint indicator changes from B to E). When above the position press Tv.

 

disclaimer: I have only done this once :D

Even with Radar on you can put a Rough Estimation of your immediate location.

 

1. Confirm easily recognizable location from distance.

2. Prep by pressing T1 which will turn your Waypoint into the letter E instead of a B.

3. Fly over landmark

4. Press TV FIX.

5. Press T1 to confirm/remove cross from radar.

I'll it another try - last time I did that the current waypoint switched from B(x) to E(x) when I pressed T1, then to b(x) when i pressed TV, then back to blinkin E(x) when I released TV.

 

Isn't the current waypoint supposed to advance to the next after the fix?

 

Also, by radar off is that A0 and master mode back in Nav?

 

Thanks!
