Flight 1 - GTN650 for the F33A

Recommended Posts

Greetings,

 

I am reading the review for the F1 GTN products and considering the 650 for the F33A as a RXP 430 replacement. Considering the F33A sample pictures in the review, the GTN 650 seems to be a natural. By the way, I assume the restriction to not cross-utilize Flight 1 GTN  along with RXP products applies only to avionics (e.g. RXP 430-530) and not to RXP FLN options.

 

Can someone provide pro's & con's?

 

Many thanks,

 

Les Parson

Hi Les,

 

I just replaced the GNS430 by the GTN650, like for like.. Works like a charm (including the RXP FLT/N gauges).

Hi Bert,

 

I copied the new panel config.   Is it possible to remove the knobs, if so how do you do this?

 

Thanks,

Mike

 

 

Never mind, I forgot about for customized folder.

It is great when it all works!

 

:rolleyes:

 

Bert,

 

I installed two 650's in my F33A, but I can't use the touch screen on unit #1 because the "finger pointer" that pops up the original GPS gets in the way. Is there any way I can get rid of this?

Remove any toggle_gps gauges in the vc.

Bert,

 

Have you been able to put GTNs in any other Carenados?

Thanks, Bert! It worked!

 

Another question: I noticed "My Gauges" in your 182Q config on the F1 GTN 650/750 forum. Where did you get the "My Gauges" with the filler and Narco Navcom?

Those are some of my custom gauges.. you can use any similar gauges as a substitute.
