A few days ago I purchased, downloaded and installed the Carenado Cessna 340II from the FSpilotshop. This version is also compatible with P3D although I am using it in FSX SP1/SP2.
Fantastic aircraft and all seems fine. However I am a bit puzzled by the HSI display, as it's CDI is not displaying GPS route inputs/deviations. I don't know if this is as it was modeled by Carenado or if there is something wrong in my installation.
With a flight plan or "Direct To" loaded in the GPS; I select "GPS" with the CDI button. The GPS CDI reacts normally in both GPS' but the HSI's needle continues to repond to the NAV1 frequency when in reception range. If not in reception range I get a white "To" flag as if it is receiving the GPS input but the needle fails to display any deviations. This is contrary to the performance in other Carenado models, So I am suspect as to whether it is in fact correct.
Any input you can offer would be appreciated. I have searched through a few forums without finding any definitive answers. Although there were some mentions of the CDI response I was never clear if they were discussing the display in the HSI. Most of the threads I found are rather aged and inactive at this point.
Would like to hear of your experience with this and any thoughts or suggestions would be appreciated.
