John If you look at the picture first off see Number 1 in Red, the bottom Arrow is pointing to the CDI button, press this to make sure that LOC1 is displayed where the NW arrow is pointing, obviously if it already is then don't touch it, then look at the number 2 I painted in red, if you look at the arrow pointing to the right of North it is pointing to your Nav1 frequencies, as you can see there is a blue rectangle around one of the frequencies, this means that any changes you do will be made to Nav1 standby freq, so what you need to do is use the big knob that my arrow is pointing at due West to change the standby freq to the ILS or LLZ frequency for the runway you wish to use, keeping your mouse to the left of the large button will change the decimal value, and moving it to the right will change the 10 value, once it is tune press the <-> button which I am pointing at to the North West to swap the standby freq to the active freq, this should then make the ILS active for the runway you want provided you are in range, you will see the ILS identifier to the right of the active freq, in my case I-BTS which is the identifier for Bristol Intl Runway 27. Once this is done look at my Number 3, rotate the CRS knob so that the runway QFU (magnetic direction of the runway) is displayed at the top of the HSI in white where the arrow to the SW is pointing. Hope this helps Dean

Localizer on Garmin 1000 Thanks Dean, That's really helpful. I've been looking for the arrow you get on the 5000.

Garmin 1000 on FSX Hi Dean I'm not sure you'll get this. However I flew the Cessna IFR from Southampton the other day and for the first time ever ATC directed me into R27 - for me it's usually 9. Yours is a much prettier apron and runway than 9 I must say! Anyway, today I flew from Cardiff and ATC directed me to R9 but using the system and frequencies you gave me I got on to the localiser. Coming in to land on 'Approach', because the turbulance was horrific and the autopilot was having a really difficult time, I was concentrating on the runway. I clicked off the autopilot but missed! Before I could rectify it, the autopilot had landed nicely dead centre on the runway! It had even handled the glide slope for me all the way down. I didn't think they could do that. The question is. You will have realised by now there's always a question. They're not shown on the 'Flight Plan' so how or where do I get the frequencies from when I'm flying into a different airport and do I have to do this while I'm in the air? Best wishes John Y

Runway Frequencies I've found the answer to my last question which concerned getting the runway frequencies. What I don't understand was why Microsoft didn't put the feathers that you have to hover the pointer open on the default map instead of one magnification in! Why make it such a mystery to new users? Come to that, why on FSX do we have to bring up the wheels and trimming panel, the switches panel, the GPS map, auto pilot etc all separately? The area taken by the main panel in the 2D view is large enough to be halved and still seen clearly, which would leave quite adequate space for all these items to be accomodated by default. There that's my moan for the day! John Y
