Yup I am the original poster of this request. It’s been a long time. I am especially surprised that this has been on the development list as being developed for over a year and still nothing. I didn’t think it would really be too hard to implement. ¯_(ツ)_/¯
I am using almost all the functions of G1000 with spadnext. You have to install the LVAR bridge to be able to use softkeys, knob… The last time I tried you need the alpha version of SPAD.next, maybe now you can do it in the normal version (I don’t know, I am using the beta version).
Check this video on how to activate LVAR bridge: (Sim Video) SPAD.neXt Alpha and LVAR Bridge Configuration - YouTube
Yeah, I was enthusiastically supporting this a year ago, but have since moved on and found other ways to connect my hardware. I feel it’s usually best to use generic joystick interfaces on the hardware with the “official” configuration options, but can only wait so long.
Yep. Totally understand that these and other well-made (and often free) add ons work around this. My original hope with MSFS was that I’d spend more time flying and less time patching and managing add-ons. It’s much better than it was with FSX!

I have all the key autopilo functions mapped to my custom rotary encoder button box (arduino pro mini powered) but really want to map the crucial map zoom button to a spare rotary. (G1000 & G3000) Please dont tell me its coming!
Just replying to bump this. Has there been ANY update? It seems ridiculous for very BASIC functions like zooming in and out of a map, or hitting the ENT softkey doesn’t have an assignable shortcut key. This seems like day 1 type of functionality, not year 3.
