Package: flightgear
Version: 3.0.0-1
Severity: minor


The Beechcraft 1900D has two VOR/DME radios but only one is ever
displayed on the EFIS (cathode ray tube below the primary flight
display).  There seems to be no way at all to show NAV2, which is
most annoying as far as DME is concerned.  (One can still use parts
of NAV2 as the double-stemmed arrow of the Radio-Magnetic Indicator,
under the airspeed indicator, points to the beacon).

On the autopilot panel between the seats, next to the YD and AP
buttons are two buttons labelled with upward pointing arrows; one
with a single stem and the other with a double stem.  These buttons
also appear in the autopilot settings dialog box called by F11 but
they seem not to do anything.  It is my understanding that these
buttons should toggle the display of NAV1 and NAV2, respectively,
on the EFIS; NAV1 uses the single-stemmed arrow and NAV2 uses the
double-stemmed arrow.  Is this correct?
