Hi Roy7

I'm not with Laminar Research, just a fellow simmer in the UK, but I have found some information on these devices:-

1. For the gyro slaving indicator on the left, please click on following link which may provide more of an explanation about what this device does :-

2. The other device on the right I believe is a secondary DME indicator (Distance Measuring Equipment), which advises the 'slant' distance between the aircraft and any given ILS/VOR beacon that you may be tuned into.

I'm no expert in either case, so maybe others could chip in here, but I hope this helps a tad?
