Determine type of approach (Lvar/simvar) - jet46 - 09-01-2023

Is there a way through a LVAR or simconnect variable to determine the type of approach that is active (such as GPS, LOC, etc...)?  The simconnect variable "GPS APPROACH APPROACH TYPE" does not seem to be updated by TDS.  I am developing some custom avionics.
