I'm wanting to toggle my mark points with TGP or MAV as SOI, WITHOUT using the HUD steer point incrementor buttons.

I dont see how to map this functionality as the DMS up/down have zooming functionality in lieu of incrementing the steer points.

How is this done? or do people just stay zoomed out and merely click the HUD steer point incrementor buttons?

You have other options than making HUD SOI, but they're all more of a bother than it is to make HUD SOI I'm afraid. With the TGP I just pre-set the zoom to what will be an approximate level of zoom; I've after all already seen what there is to see when I made the Markpoint by and large. Re Mavs: If you set one of the MFDs to MAV when HUD is SOI, MAV it'll instantly become SOI if you press Coolie Hat forward short.

The Up Front Controller has a Steerpoint rocker switch. I mapped my keyboard A and Z keys to this function. Also mapped the CDU Mode Sw to the X, S and D keys.

Bingo, I didnt see the UFC Steer Up/Down Control ... OK mapped now, thanks a lot! :-)

Mapped my Mark Points and Flight Plan too, these options keep me heads up longer... I guess I need a Track IR that would also help. ;-/
