Create a Nav 3 independent nav source

Do you guys plan to add an alternate nav3 source as some gauges need an independent frequency that do not interfere with nav1 or nav2. For example the Bendix 62A DME has it's own built in tuner.

Although for some reason I'm not finding it in the docs, you can already do that in the sim using the following key events (it was a feature at launch):

K:NAV3_RADIO_SWAP

K:NAV3_RADIO_SET

K:NAV3_RADIO_SET_HZ

K:NAV3_STBY_SET

K:NAV3_STBY_SET_HZ

K:NAV3_CLOSE_FREQ_SET


K:NAV4_RADIO_SWAP

K:NAV4_RADIO_SET

K:NAV4_RADIO_SET_HZ

K:NAV4_STBY_SET

K:NAV4_STBY_SET_HZ

K:NAV4_CLOSE_FREQ_SET


You can then use the standard nav radio simvars to get the data for those radios, using indexes 3 and 4.

I found out through Ben from Asobo and already have this setup. Did not know you can go up to index 4. According to him only up to nav3.
