Thread: Garmin 500 Replacement Gauge V8

    Default Garmin 500 Replacement Gauge V8

    I like this GPS. It's very clever; but, I ran into one snag.

    On the "Nearest" screen, after clicking the "direct to" block, it turns green and the red box appears for the ICAO code entry; but, the gauge will not allow any entry.

    Conversely, by tabbing over to the Airport side, it does accept airport names.

    Any thoughts?

    I just tried to duplicate your fault with the "Nearest" button (block) and I did not get a green screen. The author has done a "running" update to when he posted the gps_1_8 zip file, that may have solved this. Re-download the file and install it again (overwrite if asked) and see if that corrects it. Mine works perfectly.

    Thanks for checking.

    1.8 is the one I'm using so I've got something else going on.

    Default Thank You, Problem Solved

    Miatamariner, thank your for your astute response.

    There was a small but significant change in the later cab file.

    Problem solved!

    I appreciate you help,

    Ray
