Hi fellow wiki editors!

To help newly registered users get more familiar with the wiki (and maybe older users too) there is now a {{Welcome to the wiki}} template. Have a look at it and feel free to add it to new users discussion pages (and perhaps your own).

I have tried to keep the template short, but meaningful. /Johan G

A Cheat's Guide to Using the FG1000
* Use the RANGE knob to zoom map views in/out.
Implemented function: PFD:===MFD===* Artificial horizon, compass rose, altimeter and airspeed indicatorare all hopefully obvious!* HSI that can display NAV1, NAV2, GPS deviation information (press the CDIsoftkey)
* Wind information (press PFD->WIND then select one of the options for display)
* Bearings to NAV1, NAV2, GPS (press PFD then BRG1/BRG2 to cycle through the options)
* Transponder (press XPDR)
===MFD:===
* There is a two channel NAV/COM with an active and standby frequency and automatic ID of NAV frequencies at the top of the UI. They all integrate with the standard properties, so should work automatically with most aircraft.
* If you have a frequency highlighted in any of the pages (e.g. WPT - AIRPORT INFORMATION) press the ENT key to load it into the standby NAV/COM frequency as appropriate.
* To set up a GPS Direct To route:
** Press the DTO button (D with an arrow through it on the right side of the panel, below the word "PAN"). This will bring up a Direct To window, allowing you to enter the ID of an airport, Fix etc. to navigate to.
** You can enter the ID in one of two three ways:
*** Scroll the FMS knob backwards to bring up a sub-menu of waypoints categories (FPL, NRST, RECENT, USER, AIRWAY). Use the inner FMS knob to scroll between the different categories, and the outer FMS knob to select a specific item.
*** Scroll the FMS knob forwards to enter an ID manually using the FMS knob. Use the outer FMS knob to move to the next poisition in the ID. *** Use multikey support to type in the ID using the keyboard - type ":ms" followed by the ID. This is by far the fastest method!
** Once you've got an ID, press ENT which will load details into the window and highlight the ACTIVATE button.
** Press ENT once more to load the Direct-to into the GPS and activate it.
* To edit the current flightplan, press the FPL page, then press the CRSR and enter waypoints for DTO above.
GFC700 Autopilot:
* The GFC700 autopilot is a two axis autopilot with independent lateral and vertical modes. The default later/vertical modes are ROL and PIT, which hold the current roll and pitch respectively.
* If installed on the aircraft, the GFC700 autopilot is enabled by pressing any of the buttons on the bottom left of the PFD/MFD fascia:
** AP enables/disables autopilot
** FD enables a Flight Director mode, displaying control bars to follow manually. Note that this button is disabled when the autopilot is enabled.
** HDG enables a heading mode, tracking the blue heading bug. Use the HDG knob on the PFD to set.
** VS enables Vertical Speed hold. Current target is displayed at the top of the PFD. It may be adjusted by using NOSE UP / NOSE DN.
** ALT enables Altitude Hold, which holds the current altitude.
** GA enables Go Around, which sets ROL to 0 and PIT to 7 degrees nose up.
** NAV enables NAV mode. The navigation source depends on what the CDI is set to on the PFD. Currently this is only implemented for GPS.
** APR enables Approach mode for both vertical and lateral GPS or ILS approaches. Will use the currently selected CDI source.
** VNV enables vertical NAV mode (not yet implemented)
** FLC enables Flight Level Change, where the autopilot will maintain the current airspeed by pitch. NOSE UP / NOSE DN is used to set the target airspeed, which is displayed at the top of the PFD, and on the airspeed tape.
** BC enables Back Course mode (not yet implemented)
* Buttons toggle modes on/off, defaulting to ROL for lateral and PIT for vertical.
* The current PIT setting can be adjusted by using the NOSE UP and NOSE DN buttons.
* In PIT/VS/FLC mode, Selected Altitude Capture mode (ALTS) is armed, targetting the current altitude bug. Once the aircraft gets within 200ft of the selected altitude the autopilot will automatically transition to ALTS and then ALT mode to track that altitude. Note that the altitude is fixed in ALTS mode and changing the altitude bug will not change the target altitude.
* Control Wheel Steering (CWS) can be used to set new ROL/PIT targets (not yet implemented).

The default later/vertical modes are ROL and PIT, which hold the current roll and pitch respectively.If installed on the aircraft, the GFC700 autopilot is enabled by pressing any of the buttons on the bottom left of the PFD/MFD fascia:* AP enables/disables autopilot* FD enables a Flight Director mode, displaying control bars to follow manually. Note that this button is disabled when the autopilot is enabled.* HDG enables a heading mode, tracking the blue heading bug. Use the HDG knob on the PFD to set.* VS enables Vertical Speed hold.

The current pitch setting in PIT mode can be adjusted by using the NOSE UP and NOSE DN buttons. In PIT/VS/FLC mode, Selected Altitude Capture mode (ALTS) is armed, targetting the current altitude bug. Once the aircraft gets within 200ft of the selected altitude the autopilot will automatically transition to ALTS and then ALT mode to track that altitude. Note that once the altitude is fixed in ALTS mode changing the altitude bug will not change the target altitude. (Control Wheel Steering (CWS) can be used to set new ROL/PIT targets, but is not yet implemented) ===Multikey Support=== To improve useabilityusability, the FG1000 also supports multikey. If installed on the aircraft (aircraft developers need to include Aircraft/Instruments-3d/FG1000/fg1000-multikey.xml), the following keys are available. * ":GFp" can be used controls the PFD** 1- 12 selects the softkeys** s allows you to use the keyboard to enter a string for text directly into the PFD, and e.g. when entering an airport* ":GMm" for controls the MFD. This is massively easier than trying ** 1-12 selects the softkeys** a selects the Airport Information page** c selects the Checklists page** f selects the Flightplan page** m selects the Navigation Map page** n selects the Nearest Airports page** s allows you to use the keyboard to enter data manually using text directly into the FMS knobsPFD, e.g. when entering an airport** t selects the Traffic Map page
