Exit GPS window with a click on the display face

If you are like me looking for a way to close the gps window with a mouse instead of looking for the icon to click on I have found you can put a transparent gauge on the main screen allowing you to close the window by just clicking the screen. Just open the panel.cfg and place this gauge in the gps window may need to adjust size and location a bit depending on the aircraft.

gauge01=cpt.icons!GPS_T, 33,40,340,250 // added lkw

the gauge number is the next in sequence this one was taken from the default mooney bravo

Theres no need for silly see though gauges when you can just use a keyboard shortcut

Depending on the aircraft you are flying it could be "shift+2", "shift+3" "shift+4"
Just a matter of convience in my opinion. Pop the GPS up maybe use the mouse for a function on the GPS (zoom etc) the mouse is in your hand click the screen the window is closed. Mouse still in your hand adjust the heading etc. For pop up and a quick up and down I do use the shift+(whicherver) But I tend to be a mouse oriented user and use the icon a lot for the same purpose.
