CXG2 ADF Issue

I can handle the Radio Tuning etc.,

But I cannot Tune In the ADF and I have read the Manual.

The Tune button seems to be dead.

Does this feature work?

I checked with my installation. At my site the ADF does not work correctly, either. I cannot dial in a frequency with the tune knob. This knob does not work at all in ADF mode. What I can do is to set a frequency via the FMS. But the ADF then shows strange values. Example, when I set the frequency to 355 via the FMS, the ADF windows shows a value of 0.3. Set to 1200 finally gives 1.2 in the display and so on.

Maybe that the ADF works correctly but I haven't been able to check that.

Let's hope somebody comes up with an answer.
It is true that this device is not used that often these days but the manual says it's available.
Maybe there will be an answer from the Eaglesoft team in due time.

I think they should solve that for the upcoming generation 3 Cessna's. It is time now, because the current release is already a couple of years in service. Again, all this could have to do with regional settings , but this is just speculation.

Since ADFs are being phased out (rather rapidly), I really don't consider this a very important issue... but...

Please confirm version number from the FMS screen.

I absolutely agree. The ressources can be better used for the G3 releases. For me it is not a big problem due to the reasons you mentioned. However, I'm running 3.02.11

I agree it's not a big deal. Concentrate resources where required.

Thank you.
