Isn't the new owner a guy called B. Gates? The new GPS is looking a lot like the FSGarmin? Just a thought......

Hi Tino,actually the future FS GPS looks a lot like the one found here:www.garmin.comIt appears though that either the freeware Garmin for FS2002, or the Reality XP Garmin (Flight Line 530XP) both uses the official Garmin Ltd. 500 series trainer as an helper application which runs in the background. As such, both the freeware and the Reality XP garmin looks the same (at least from the screen perspective :-) ), provides the same database, the same menus, the same functions. They differ in their implementation though and a number of functions, user interface, panel integration and virtual cockpit implementation, TCAS and a couple others to name a few. Worth mentioning, the Reality XP Garmin GPSS (autopilot integration) works per Garmin specs and turn anticipate, takes in account the cross wind and flies DME arcs.The future FS garmin then "looks like" a Garmin and should, as far as the advertisement claims, provides a number of similar functions.The rest is speculation only.Hope this helps!
