Zakharov has been working on his glass cockpit and has improved the zkv1000 instrument a lot. This is a pale replica of well known Garmin Primus 1000. All interface and features are based from User's Manual for Garmin Primus 1000 embedded in DA40/DA40F aircraft.
 +
It is designed for very simple integration in aircraft panel, and it is possible (wip) to configure many parts of graphic interface and automatic behaviour for specific aircraft (e.g. airspeed ruler and speed warnings).
 +
A very detailed user's manual would be released near the instrument inclusion in official repo. For now it features:
 +
* PFD and MFD (including revisionnary mode)
 +
* Altitude and Indicated Airspeed rulers
 +
* ASI, TAS, VS
 +
* HSI including VOR1, VOR2, GPS and ADF
 +
* full menu interface
 +
* full radio stack
 +
* full autopilot indications
 +
* integration with default autopilot (plus more as "Flight Level Change")
 +
* radio-to-radio flightplan creation "on the fly"
 +
* 10 nearest airports choice for direct-to flying or COMM freq adjustement
 +
* Artificial Horizon including a Flight Director
 +
* default integrated autopilot if none is specified
 +
* external perl script for MFD's maps creation from Atlas' map utility (work in *NIX and Windows environnment)\\ There are still many to do before a release could be done, but it may take a month or less before first inclusion on official Git repo.
