Two G5's - twist one knob, both move

#1 Post by mryan75 » Sat Oct 16, 2021 1:17 pm

Hi all,

Forgive me if I've overlooked the issue in the documentation, but I have two G5's stacked on top of one another, and when I rotate the knob on either of them, the settings move on both. In other words, if I change the OBS on the bottom one, the altimeter (or altitude setting, whichever is in focus at the time) moves along with the bottom one.

Is there a way to separate them? So I can tune each by its own knob individually?

Thanks!

Yikes... I knew someone in public school in the UK who had this issue in his first year.. :) . I LOVE the title. :o
