GTN 750 intergration

Recommended Posts

Here is a download link to everything you need  for your panel folder with the mod. Please make a backup of the origional first just in case. I have included two screen shots of what the mod looks like so you have an idea if this is something for you. The community has given so much to me so i hope this works and i am able to give something useful back. Enjoy.  (obviously the GTN 750 needs to be properly installed first and configured for the Citation 550 in the F1 config utility first before proceeding!!)

 

Send me a message if you need help

Hey that is surely a complete and easy package that you have developed. Did you consider placing the GTN750 in the MFD glass area on the panel? I would think it would be a lot more practical at that location rather than down on the pedestal.

 

Good work though.

This looks really good!  :P

 

The GTN750 is a lot more useful as a navigation device, than the dumbed down Universal FMC that is in the plane.

 

Nice work!

Great. I was never a fan of putting the stuff on the back of the pedestal but Cessna would never listen to me.

I am going to encourage Carenado to make the GTN upgrade available.

in real life, could one reach all the way across the panel to operate the touch screen?

Probably not. The real world location of choice seems to be just to the right of the MFD. Most of the photos of rw installations have a weather radar or garmin GPS located where Carenado put the MFD.

 

I posted a cut and paste screenshot showing the GTN750 in that location (rw) in one of the threads here a couple of days ago.

I'd like to put it where the Wx radar is - and just put the main screen in that window.  We'd still have to use the popup to use the gauge.

Thank you CT5 for your efforts on this. I have an idea for other placements. Me personally I'm not a fan of the location of the GTN aft of the throttle quadrant. I think most would prefer it on the main panel where it can be visible. My thought would be to remove the FMS and move the Universal MFD aft of the throttles to the current position of the FMS. And then place the GTN 750 in the current position of the Universal MFD as well as remove the COM1 and NAV1 radios as these are integrated into the GTN.

Your welcome, I agree with you fully, i just posted a new panel mod, maybe its a little better to some than this one. I do hope Carenado makes us a formal GTN intergration option. RealityXP is  dying and Supporting this new software is the way to go. Even Realair and Milviz has jumped on board with this product.

Looks great... 

just one question about the GTN 750? 

how often do you guys get navdata updates for it (like airacs or garmin updates..)?

thats the only thing that bothers me before i buy it...

The right-side EHSI and EFIS are required in the real aircraft because they're the 2nd of each type of instrument. Primary and a backup. May be a single pilot aircraft, but instrument backup is still required.

Absolutely. Bad idea. Back to square 2.

We did that already. Pics in another thread near here.

 

The GTN650 seems to work a little better than the 750 inside the glass. Popup would be another factor - I like the GTN750 for the larger size and the charts and maps.

I believe a Citation is coming my way shortly, and after arrival, I'd like to take another crack at the GTN750 in the MFD spot.

 

From the pictures I have seen, it might be possible to move the screen up, so that the radio information is hidden (since there are Collins radios in the panel) and that might make the 750 more viable.

 

Still hoping that Carenado will provide a proper integration option, of course..

That is good news indeed. Maybe you can take a look at at the AP and FMS after that.
