I wonder how many ''automated'' pilots bother to identify the localizer frequency. Garbage in Garbage out.
I haven't flown the state-of-the-art avionics. I know they display the identifier of the selected LOC or VOR. If that is displayed only after the avionics have "listened" to the identifier, then wouldn't that make it unnecessary for the "automated pilot" to take the time (and attention diversion) to concentrate on the Morse Code audio?
