a hand held GPS for B200?

My Favorite Beech B200 does not have a moving map on the Cillins GPS, and I don't quite like the funky Collins GPS. I like Garmin much better. My question is, how can I get a addon handheld Garmin when I fly this plane? I am talking about sim of course..

You can add it by adding a window to your panel.cfg 😀

There is a way to add a window to your plane's panel.cfg and to include the default MS GPS. Unfortunately, I don't have an example for you.

If my memory serves (it doesn't always), there is a hand-held GPS out there. You might want to check simflyer.com or reality-xp.com.

Doug "Grumpy" Attrell wrote a nice tutorial. I haven't tried it in fs9 but would not hesitate to do so if the need arose. I may have misunderstood your query - if so, ignore this. If not - ➡ http://www.simviation.com/lair/AddGPS.htm

Sorry about the short answer. Embarassed Tailhook pointed you to a pretty good porceedure it is very simular to what you would do with fs9. If you would like additional help I will try to answer later today as I am at work and do not have the simulator available for reference. 😕

Just in case you would like a better explination on fs9

Make changes with fs9 not running if you have it running and want to
tweek the numbers change to a different airplane before making change
and do not save a flight before you have what you want.

Entries for panel.cfg
[Window Titles]
//add next line under window titles
Window02=GPS // window number next available if not 02

// add following lines changing the 02 to the next window number
// it can be inserted before [VCockpit01] if ther is one

[Window02]
size_mm=545,354
window_size=0.5,0.3625
position=2 // this positions the window in 9 positions upper left is 0
// lower right is 8
BACKGROUND_COLOR=0,0,0 // makes back ground invisable
VISIBLE=0 // not visable on start up the window number will identify
// the key to open, shift 2 would open this window
ident=GPS_PANEL

gauge00=fs9gps!gps_295, 0,0 // gsp gauge

[End of entries to panel.cfg] this line not part of the addition

a // in the line allows comments to be added to the code you can leave
the comment in or delete them out from the // to the end of the line is ignored by the program

Happy flying 😀
