How to update PMDG 737 cockpit to look like real aircraft

Pro Member Trainee

OK, I am about halfway through a major airline ground school. I was really impressed with PMDG 737NG at first. Now that I am getting familiar with the company's 737s, I am disappointed that the cockpit set up for the sim version doesn't look as close the real thing as it could. Instrument displays are all wrong. Any idea who I could get in touch with to have this updated?

they look same nothing different so i cant understand what u on about. you can change the settings to different clock version in the pmdg in the task bar while in flight. that will make 4 gauges turn in to one thats only thing i can think of

if you read what i said when in flight go in to the pmdg options in the task bar after pressing (alt) and you can change it to be 4 in 1 as you want

I read your earlier post too quickly and missed your tip. I still don't see how to change this though. I went into the PMDG options. However, I don't see where or how to change the DU displays. Any help is greatly appreciated.

Have you tried cycling from <1> through <9> (top row) while holding down the <Shift> key?

You can do this regardless of whether your in 2D Cockpit or VC. No need pressing <Alt> to bring up the Menu bar on top.

EEfis is not an option. It is there but is shadowed and can not select it as an option. Do I need to upgrade?

OK, finally got the DU panel fixed. However, it took purchasing the 800/900 series to get this to work.
