How do you read the new HUD?

I have been enjoying the new Infinite Flight update with the new aircraft and UI. However, I am having trouble getting used to the new heads up display. I have a few questions about the new HUD.

  1. How do you set the ILS/GPS for a runway? I used to be able to touch and hold on the ILS/GPS button in the bottom right half of the display, however, I can no longer do that. How can I select the ILS/GPS of the runway I would like to land at?

  2. Where is the glideslope? The glideslope is usually positioned right next to the altitude indicator, but I can’t find it anymore.

  3. What does the localizer look like now? Is it the pink bar in the center of the “heading wheel”?

Good evening,

Please fly direct to this topic, and read it over. If you have any questions about any aspect of the tutorial, please, comment below the topic.

Have a very merry Xmas,

Edit, for further advice.

Important note regarding ILS tuning:

You must be within a 27nm radius of the airport in order to successfully tune in the ILS frequency. Outside of this range you will not be able to tune in the runway. I would highly suggest creating a FPL that has a GPS route from the end of the cone to the runway threshold and use that as a guide to align you with the runway. This will not be as accurate as the ILS but will keep you going in the correct direction.


While Deercrusher wrote a beaut tutorial, I do agree some visuals on the new look and feel of doing an ILS approach would help.

Here is what I have worked out:

  • the blue arrow shows your set altitude. Here 400 feet
  • below, the blue arrow shows the extended centerline
  • below, the purple arrow shows your flightplan (I think)
  • the green dot is your glide slope

Key message from the tutorial: a GPS approach will not provide us with glideslope; its basically a VFR approach now. Only runways with an ILS cone will allow us to do ILS approach
