Do not see GNS 430/530 on Instrument Panel

Recommended Posts

I purchased GNS 430/530 Simulation and I do not see it appear on the panel of the C172 Minsdstar version.

 

I do see it as a pop up window under Views à Instrument Panel à GNS Panel.

 

I would expect it to be on the instrument panel as well. Is it supposed to be on the panel or just as a pop-up?

 

 

Do I need to set it in the panel myself or is it supposed to be in the panel after installation.

The default 2D panel for the C172 has no GPS display on it. The default C172 VC has no GPS installed. The only GPS unit in the default C172 is in a popup window.

I did receive an email back from support stating this. I understand that Mindstar only adds a pop-up.

 

I have been able to add the GNS430 into a panel but having an issue with adding a pop-up. I used the same configuration that was added to the C172 but when I lick on the pop-up, it crashes.

 

Is there any way to determine what is causing this?

I would need a bit more information before having an answer that is of value.

 

1 - What aircraft?

2 - Show me the panel entries for the 430's.

I figured it out. I needed to change the instance of the pop up to 2.

Ed one more question.

 

When I bring up pop-up window, the GNS430 display goes blank on the panel. It behaves the same on the VC and the 2D panel.

 

When I close the pop-up it reappears. 

 

It seems that the gps will only display on one window at a time.

 

The VC instance is 1, the pop-up instance is 2 and the 2D panel instance is 3.

 

Is this expected behaviour?

I'm not Ed, but yes that is the way it is designed.
