Logical Indicator

On the conditional indicator drill made by the student, the logical indicator "will" appear and the rule say's it indicates a necessary term.

"Will" however, is not on the "4 Translation Group Cheatsheet". It also confuses me because on the basic translation group 2 flashcards an example is "only a GPS will reveal where you are" .... the answer indicates that in lawgic it reads:
a --> GPS and /GPS --> /a.

I do realize that the LI "only" is also in that sentence, however the term "will" is now tripping me up and I do not know to include it in my Group 2 Logical Indicator or not. Please help! :)

    “Will” is not a conditional indicator. It is a modal auxiliary that can be used in four ways as a part of a verb phrase: a future prediction, a present prediction, a habitual prediction, or a volition. It usually indicates tense, such as the future or future perfect. Even if you don’t know the formal labels, I promise you know exactly how all that works and exactly what it all means, no analysis or translation required.
