Gauge Installation and Update Guide


If you have ANY older .zip gauges you should delete them ALL and download the latest .snp gauges for each. If you are updating any existing .snp gauge simply replace the old gauge.snp with the new one.


Our Spad.Next Protected (.SNP) gauge files can not be opened in Windows, so please do not try.

Place our gauge.snp files on your PC anywhere other than in your SPAD.neXt application folders. You can keep them with your current gauges if they are not within the SPAD.neXt application directory. SPAD.neXt recommends creating a folder "" in the folder "My Documents\SPAD.neXt\Gauges" and place the .snp Files there.

On the FIP page of, select the fip you want to load the gauge to and then click the add gauge button.

If you have put our gauge.snp files into a folder already known to SPAD.neXt then simply refresh that gauge folder using the refresh icon on the gauge loading form and your new gauges will appear after indexing finishes, otherwise click "add location" at the bottom of the gauge loading form and point it at the new gauge folder.

While you can re-program buttons and dials in SPAD.neXt, any changes to buttons or dials that come pre-programmed with our gauges to perform specific gauge functions will probably stop working. Any manual re-programming of buttons will take priority over our pre-programmed buttons and as a result you may no longer be able to operate the gauge untill you remove all programming for the button or dail and re-load the gauge (or you can delete and re-add gauge in SPAD.neXt, to restore all button and dial programming)

Button labeling is available in SPADneXt 0.9.x for when you use the Button Side Panel Versions or when you turn on the Button side panels in gauge. Editing the button labels in SPAD.neXt does not interfear with gauge operations, but when you manually program buttons and save them in a profile the gauge coded buttons will be ignored.

.zip files:

Please delete ALL old .zip file gauges and download replacement .snp gauges from your order history. Old zip gauges are no longer supported and not 100% compatable with current versions of SPAD.neXt
