FSX - Searching an airport frequency in the GPS and setting it in the radio
Easy step by step instructions

In this example we'll search for the frequency of the ILS and set it in the NAV1, for an ILS approach, but it applies to searching and setting any other frequency (tower, etc.)

Press the "NRST" button to start.

Push the "PUSH CRSR" knob

Using the arrows of the larger knob select the airport you are going to land
In this example we select the Barcelona airport (LEBL)
Then press the "ENT" button

Use the right arrow of the small knob to go to the list of frequencies

Press "PUSH CRSR" and then use the arrows of the small knob to select the frequency
 you are interested in

In this example we select the ILS of runway 07L
Then press "ENT"

As we can see the frequency has been automatically set as the
Aux. frequency of NAV1. Press the change frequency button when you
want to actually tune that frequency.

And finally enable "NAV1" for listening the audio on that frequency.

When you get in the ILS coverage area remember to set the "NAV/GPS" selector in the NAV position and
enable "APP" in the autopilot, so that the airplane follows the glide slope of the ILS frequency set in NAV1.
