OK, this is a new one on me, on the 110 panel is a gauge marked uber as shown in the photo. My guess is that it is some sort of (radar/radio) absolute altimeter for low level use. What ever it is it seems to keep on twitching even after I shut the engines down.

I'm pretty sure that's a speed-over-ground indicator. Not sure why it twitches when landed, though.

It's the AGL altimeter, just as the label says.

The gauge is currently broken. Does anyone know if it's on the list of things to fix for the next patch?

If I remember right this is the radioaltimeter. It indicates the real altitude above the ground not the barometric altitude.

Gauge labeling means:

"Hight - Over ground"
