Who is using GNS530?

Recommended Posts

I submitted a bug about it but now I'm wondering if it's a bug with the acft I'm flying.... (Carenado C206)

 

When I try to increase the comm freq's small digits it won't work.  It just locks back to the previous setting.  I can successfully decrease the value though.

 

Anyone else see this?  And have you tried it in another aircraft?

It's a beta bug.  The 10.30 version of the CT206 should be considered a beta version, as it only works with a beta version of X-Plane, and thus, cannot be made to be 100% final anyway.  The GNS530 uses different datarefs for COM radios, which are 10x larger (due to the extra 0.005 frequency slot), and somehow that's not playing nice with the plugin.  I'm still trying to sort it out.  For now, you're best off just using the 3D tuner to tune the radio up.  As you mentioned, decreasing the value works just fine.

 

Other beta-bugs in need of sorting out are: right GNS530 knob button (Exists, but undocumented), and the VNAV button functionality (does not exist yet).
