This only affects the FS2004 version of the ATR.

How to use the ADC switch to toggle between NAV and GPS modes
------------------------------------------------------------ -
We introduced an optional way to use the ADC switch as NAV/GPS switch. If you want to
use a default GPS or any other GPS based on the default one, you need to go through the
following steps:
1) Open <your FS folder>\Flight One Software\Flight One ATR 72-500\ATR.cfg" in notepad
2) Add the following line below "ElevatorLimit=10000":
      UseADCforGPS=1
3) Save ATR.cfg and reload the aircraft

Now the annunciator light above the ADC switch will indicate "GPS" when set to GPS mode. If the
light test is active, it will show "FAULT" though.
If you decide not to use the ADC switch for NAV/GPS anymore, just set UseADCforGPS to zero.
Best regards,
Hans
