The most challenging flights are made when visibility is poor or when complicated navigation has to be performed, few
planes have actual moving maps and GPS displays, but almost all of them have radio navigation instruments which can be
used for finding your location and performing accurate approaches and landings in limited visibility.
When you open the map you see radio navigation aids colored in white, these consists of NDB , VOR, ILS beacons.

NDB can be picked up by the ADF or RMI instrument on your plane.
VOR can be picked up by ILS, VOR, NSD, ADI instruments on your plane.

readings for NAV1 and NAV2.

Only appropriate navaids can be selected for each type of navigation instrument you have, selecting a wrong type will
result in the frequency showing 000.

Instruments have a limited range for which they are effective, if you select an instrument which is too far, the instrument
will show you the red indicator and will not receive the signal from this device.
