Took a quick look through the manual and maybe missed it but...how to I ID a VOR/ILS aurally? I’m familiar with the automatic textual decode of the Morse code. In other words, how do I enable audible ID and adjust volume? Thanks.

I'm not familiar with your setup, but my nav1 & nav2 are fed to my audio panel, which has standalone nav audio bus buttons.  If you have that and can't hear the Nav when pressing the nav audio button, then you probably need to set the VLOC volume under AUX.  Go to AUX, AUDIO, Volume Control.  Use the bottom right knobs to adjust the volume as necessary

The IFD has a filter that automatically filters out the Morse ID of a VOR station. This is useful when you're listening to the weather over a VOR frequency.

To hear the VOR ID, you have to turn off the filter.

Do this:

1) Select the NAV input on your audio panel so you can hear the output of the IFD navigation radio.

2) Press the COM/VLOC Tuning knob to select the navigation radio frequency box. (Magenta box appears around it.)

3) Press the VOL/SQ/ID knob. This turns off the radio’s ID filter, so you can hear the identification Morse code. The letters ID will be displayed in blue.

4) Turn the VOL/SQ/ID knob to adjust the volume of the navigation radio audio signal.

Hope this helps.

Mike
