Flight1 - Garmin GTN 750/650 for X-Plane

Recommended Posts

This looks awesome, of course it's released for FSX. Still don't know why people keep making such nice add-ons for a dying platform. Anyways I heard that this will be also be released for P3D as well as X-Plane. I hope it's true and I am looking forward to adding this to some of my planes. Much better than the old RXP GNS 430/530 system.

They said they're doing it for XP?

 

Where did you read that I'm just curious...

First, P3D is certainly not dying.

 

Problem with this product is that you cannot easily update the navigation data. They said that in their forum.

 

It uses the Official Garmin trainer, and neither Navigraph nor NavDataPro work with that. You would need to buy expensive updates from Garmin probably. Imo too expensive for just simulation.

 

I agree that a good GTN would be nice. But hey, the new X-Plane GNS just works fine and the real one is installed in many real aircraft anyway.

It maybe an old platform, but it's were most of the users still are. I was a little disappointed that this wasn't made for P3D, as I very rarely use FSX now, and probably won't ever go back to it.

I thought Flight1 weren't releasing anything for P3D, and have in fact gone out of their way to make sure the addons can't be installed on that platform? Also, where did you hear that they are planning an X-Plane version? If this is true, then this is great news (as long as the database is worldwide and not US only).

 

I think a good solution would be to create a standalone emulator which interfaces directly with the X-Plane/FSX/P3D and can be ran on something like an iPad or Android tablet. It won't gobble up frames this way, and can be used on a touch screen just like the real device. Also more importantly, it could use data from Navigraph and aerosoft.

They are making a P3D version, but expect it to cost more money and it will come from Flight1 Tech (their real world aviation based company)

 

I don't know about a XP version

Heres the P3D version - 65 dollars

Hi,

 

I'm a privat pilot and I just made my IFR licence some weeks ago. In order to continue training on simulator, I'm looking for a plane with Aspen avionics and Garmin GTN 650 GPS under x-plane.

 

I have bought some time ago the bonanza of Carenado which is quite nice. But I have not yet found a solution to plug a GTN 650.

 

I have the GTN 650 simulator of Garmin on my PC and my ipad, so if there's any possiblity to link those, it would be excellet.

 

Reading this thread give me some hope that this might be possible some day. Do you have any news?

 

i thank you in advance !

 

Denis

Let's keep asking for it. Maybe F1 is listening. More identical products for X-Plane and Prepar3D would help both platforms in the long run, IMHO.

Who do I have to kiss to get the X-plane 11 version up and running?… Currently it's giving me errors in X-plane 10,  as I install it into my X-Plane 10 folder, it says this is not X plane 9!

 

The documentation indicates that version support for 9 AND 10...with 11 support later...later when?

 

Seasons greetings to all,

 

Chas

You install XP10 - in its own folder and XP11 in its own folder not all in same folder if I am reading your post correctly

Rich,

 

I was talking about the RX P GTN 750

for X plane.

 

Thanks,

Do you have XP10 installed? I'm not sure if it will install to XP11 at the moment.

yup...and purchasing XP11 gave me an XP 10 license...so no CD/DVD NEEDED ANYMORE

 

Thanks,

There are instructions on .org on how to install it in XP11. I'm still trying to figure out how that person got it working in the XP default C172 3D cockpit.  As a popup gauge its certainly great, but it really needs to be embedded in the VC.

You might want to review this in the Reality XP support forum thread talking about XP11 installation.

 

This applies both to the RXP GTN 750 Touch and RXP GTN 650 Touch simulation products:

http://www.avsim.com/topic/499425-cannot-install-the-rxpgtn-750-xpl-into-xplane-11/

 

Obviously, the same shall apply for our upcoming GNS 530 WAAS and GNS 430 WAAS for X-Plane if they have not released v11 before we do.

Try this post, get that dropbox link too

http://www.avsim.com/topic/498512-flying-rxp-gtn-in-xp11-beta/page-2#entry3527086

 

And you should end up with something like this (assuming you own both the RXP GTN 750 and 650).  If you only have 1 you can still use it, just the other unit will be blank.

Will this integration work with the default Cessna 172 in XP11?

 

Also if we purchased F1 GTN 650/750 for P3D, can we get a discount for the X-Plane version?

Ryan,

 

Thanks, I'll try it even though the method creates a non-working (display only) 3D version in parallel with the normal 2D popup. I must have missed the last few posts in that thread and I assumed that it was a true 3D implementation. Either RXP or a user like bluebell2 will eventually figure it out.

It's a totally different developer RXP that did the XP version.

Try making a full copy of the default C172. Then copy the content of the dropbox folder into this copy. Finally, delete all C172 files in the main folder of the aircraft and leave only the one labeled GTN. That worked for me.

Sorry that it didn't work. I am away from my XP computer. If I manage to simulate anything on a laptop I'll post again.

Thanks. I'll keep plugging away. It's possible that I don't have the same file content for the modified aircraft in XP10 and XP11, but I can't seem to find the discrepancy. Or it is just a bug in the beta 3. The popup GTN 750 works like a charm in XP11, though.

Is bluebell2's mod based on the XP10 version? I'm not going to worry about it for now as it is just some random eye candy. RXP will figure out how to do it correctly, but my guess is that they are still working on official XP11 compatibility for the popup gauge.
