    Or make/model of radio? It wouldn't happen to be the marker beacon annunciator would it?

    Yeah, I’m guessing you’re talking about the marker beacons (O-M-I), although I’m not sure why you would be seeing them illuminate when flying to a VOR.

    It's not attached to a radio and it reads ---nm --kt --m on the normal panel. I'm a sim pilot but I help fund the industry as a frequent flier.

    How about a screenshot, then?

    Might be a DME?

    Probably a magnetic direction from what ever it’s reporting.

    Yep. Sounds like a remote DME indicator.

    During my PP training, the trainer I flew had a DME receiver, and we had a VOR/DME on the field. It was a pretty handy device for teaching positional awareness. With the VOR I could visualize my position from the field, and the DME told me the distance. Pretty handy on those night flights.

    All the kids these days use GPS.

    The worst is the children of the white needle (VORs). Always staring at that white needle and not looking outside.

    Can the device pickup airways in GPS mode?

    Nope, you can set it to where it will automatically respawn in the event of an accident. It’s the hands free method.

    Here’s an older picture from the flip-phone. Of course the previous one is much better and shows the DME clearly. 4FA49EC2-1F2C-4EC3-A4B6-2FE7706F37D7.jpeg
