GTN750 Integration

Recommended Posts

Thinking about getting this bird for P3Dv2.  Can anyone confirm successful integration of the Flight1 GTN750 into the VC?

Thanks!

The B1900 is designed with GNS gauges in the panel..

 

How would you get a GTN gauge in there?

 

Best you can do, is make the GTN screen appear in the GNS frame... not very appealing..

Hi Bert,

 

I think it's better than nothing.

 

If the screen fit well on the frame, would be nice, at least for me.

This will put it in place of the Avidyne:

 

[Vcockpit05]
Background_color=0,0,0
size_mm=1024,1024
visible=0
pixel_size=1024,1024
texture=$Panel_5

gauge00=EX500_1900D!EX500_config,    0,  0,   1,  1
//gauge01=EX500_1900D!EX500_3D,        0,512, 513, 411
gauge02=1900DKA!ToggleCARG500,      64,512, 448, 64
gauge03=EFIS1900D!EFIS_3D,                       0,  0, 512,512

Using Bert's [Vcockpit05] panel.cfg suggestion I do find the GTN750 in the Avidyne frame but the colors are dim and, more importantly, the unit's click spots don't work.

Has anyone else experienced this? What have I missed?

Regards,

Steve P.

You can adjust VC cockpit brightness using the F1GTN config app.

If you have instrument reflections set to on, turn them off, re clickspots on the GTN.

Bert,

I find that turning off the B1900D instrument reflections brightens the display but still no click spots. I have tried several adjustments of the eyepoint with no joy.

Steve,

I no longer have the B1900 installed so cannot test this.. you may have to live with using the popup GTN for any interactions..

Possibly time to get another small commuter plane like the SF340, or the PC12, or C90GTX, all of which I have and which do work with a GTN 750.

Hi Bert,

I agree. I have some on my wish list. The B1900D is still a favorite. Thanks very much for your attention.

Anybody figure out how to get the 530 in the B1900? I can get the popup but the gauge in the VC stays blank
