cant seem to find it...
I'm at work right now, so I can't actually look at the Baron panel, but one of the things that might be confusing as to the location of the Baron's VOR OBS is that NAV1 is coupled to the HSI (Horizontal Situation Indicator) which combines the VOR OBS and the HI (Heading Indicator) into one instrument located below the AI (Attitude Indicator). However, there should be a stand alone NAV2 VOR OBS.
Oh in case you didn't know, the OBS stands for Omni Bearing Selector.
There is a #2 VOR for the Barron. I wish our club planes had an HSI. They take a bit of getting used to, but once shoot an approach with one, you hate going back to having separate instruments.
First, sorry for the size of the shot, as I simply copied a picture from my thread in the screenshot forum here. Anyway, Steve is right about the NAV1 being integrated with the HSI, right below the attitude indicator.
NAV 2 is located in the lower left corner and only provides directional info (i.e. direction to the VOR station), not radial information.
Thank you, thank you and thank you :)
The VOR is not in your plane; it is a white building on the ground. That is all.

The number 2 NAV is the RMI located on the lower left which you pointed out correctly. However, the RMI does provide radial information. The needle (arrow head) points toward the station (VOR); the back side of the needle (feathered side) gives you your radial from the station. For example if the needle is pointing to a heading of 090 you would actually be on the 270 radial from the station.
These RMIs are super nice to have, especially while shooting an approach that requires a DME Arc. I wish all airplanes were equipped with RMIs...

Actually, no. The equipment on the ground is the VOR transmitter and the guage on the panel is the VOR receiver. It is correct to refer to them both as a VOR.
Yes and the double arrow is the ADF needle which points to an NDB station if there is one in the neighborhood.
or a local Mexican radio station.
