From the information thus far, it appears that the function of the FS 2004 GPS is not a full implementation of the Garmin 530, although it looks light years ahead of the 2002 GPS!Enjoy your 530 and learn to fly the standard approaches.. it will keep you busy for some time to come!

I agree with Bert. I don't think it's likely that MS will include a fully-functional 530. More likely it will be "dumbed down" a bit. I, too, just bought the 530 and I'll bet I'll still be using it in August :-) .Trip

Hi, I will not buy anymore any GPS for fs2004, the gps built in will be enough for me. The amount of comparaison are not enough for an investment. I will prefer to buy Aircraft for fs2004. And who said you will not have to paid more for the upgrade. If you have seen the video and information Garmin GPS 500 and Garmin GPS 295http://www.microsoft.com/games/flightsimulator/atc.asphttp://www.microsoft.com/games/flightsimul...s/video/gps.wmvGarmin, new Microsoft Fs partner!Save your money for REAL Investment!Eric
