ILS= Intrustment Landing System.

The way you set it up is put the freq of the landing rwys in either NAV 1 or NAV 2 then hit swap to make it active, then turning your AP on and switch NAV/GPS switch to nav, and it'll get you lined up in the Glide slope of the landing rwy. Its all the in learning section.

Then don't ask anybody anything. BTW, it's Morse code, and capitalize your I's. Good God, man!
