GEAR POSITION simvar does not match SDK

According to SDK, (A:GEAR POSITION:index, Enum) takes values
0 = unknown
1 = up
2 = down

In the SimVarwatcher, when setting a value of 0 it will result in “UP” state and when setting a value of 2 it will result in a “Down” state, but the Variable output shows 0 for up 1 for down. I suspect the SimVarWatcher is bugged.

Hello @SWS-AlexVletsas

This is a duplicate of Documentation GEAR POSITION:Index - Bug Reports / SimConnect - MSFS DevSupport (

This simvar expects an enum value for writing but returns a percentage when reading.
This is something we need to document.
