Simple way...you can upload the pictures to some image site like imgur.com and then link them here with the picture icon.

Thanks Gregg,

 

I had forgotten about the private forum. I will try to learn posting pics to this forum.

Hello,

 

Is this in FSX or P3d?

 

 

My concern with buying the pc12 was the lack of support for GTN750, but this may push me over the edge!!

 

Thanks,

B.

DeskPilot518,

 

This is FSX, but I see no reason it would not work in P3d. Both the PC-12 and GTN will work in both and it is just a gauge change. 

 

It is not perfect. Carenado would have to do that but it works and you can pop the gauges up. 

 

Enjoy,

 

Greg

Unfortunately, they do not in this mod. The remaining frame is for the 530. I re-positioned the GTN 750 displays to fit inside the 530 frames.( thanks to Bert for the idea) If click on the face of the 530 frame just above the left tuning knob, the GTN 750 will pop up and you can interface with it. Best I can do until Carenado maked a change in the panel model mapping.

I use this mod for p3d - works quite well.

 

I had to manually am run the config to have the lower 750 become nav2/comm2 but otherwise just click the sidebar to popup the gauges.

I'd really like to know this too. I'm leaning toward buying the GTN 750 but I'm concerned about the performance. PC12 is already heavy on fps and I can stand it gets even worse..

 

Someone mentioned that GTN 750 runs outside P3D and it may actually improves the fps. Hope that is true.

I don't know if anybody is still interested, but I purchased the GTN750 today and tested the fps impact. When replacing the default GPS with the GTN750 (using the above mod) then is has absolutely no fps impact. I compared it like for like (using the same scenerio) to the default GPS and it really has no impact at all. Amazing! Only when you pop up the 2D panel then fps drop by 2-3 fps which is rather insignificant. This unit is really amazing. And with the above mentioned mod you can even use the touch screen in the VC without having to pop up the 2D panel.

You are correct, there are a lot of options. They will personalize your GTN 750 display. You do not need to choose any to create the pop up windows. Simply run the utility for the panel you want and it will automatically set up the pop ups with the default settings in the GTN 750.

Hi all,

I've recently bought the Flight 1 GTN and have also looked into the panel configs.

 

I'm using slightly different settings to Greg - I want the GTN's full display shown within the 530 display screen, although this means the scale is incorrect, i.e. the screen is wider than it should be. However, this allows the entire display to be shown, so you can see your radios/click your back buttons etc. Please follow instructions as before, changing under Vcockpit01:

 

 

gauge03=F1GTN!GTN750, 538,  17, 485,283,UNIT1.VC
gauge04=F1GTN!GTN750, 538,390, 485,283,UNIT2.VC

Can you post a screenshot? I am using FSX Acceleration still because Reality Xp does not work with Steam edition but if the Flight1 works in the PC-12 I will move to FSX Steam

And yes, the touchscreen features do work - i.e. I can still press on the screen in the virtual cockpit to set all the functions.

Hi,

 

Anyone interested in a tweaked VC texture. I tried to make the GNS530 look a little more like the GTN750. Hopefully Carenado will come with an update to add the Flight GTN750. Let me know and I will find a way to share the textures.

Very nice!  I'd love to have that update.
