GTN PC Trainer 2.00.3 for Flight1 GTN 750

Recommended Posts

Hi everybody , does someone know where i could find the GTNPCTrainerLite_2003.exe because it's not available anymore on the garmin website (only version 5.00 there) and it's needed in order to use the GTN 750 from flight1 (v5.00 not compatible yet) , thanks .

I read in another forum that Flight1 is preparing an update of the GTN750 to be compatible with the latest version of the Garmin Trainer (that includes worldwide terrain data that therefore saves a few euros because the acquisition of the Garmin disk is no longer necessary!).

I would love to see that happen… Especially since 95% of the code for the GTN 750… Don't get me wrong I love mine… Comes from the the Garman Trainer and not Flight One.

Keeps failing or stopping for me.. anyone else having this issue? Don't want to buy the product if I can't download an essential file!

The GTN750 wrapper downloads it for you during install of the gauge. Make sure that it installs into a folder called GTN Trainer Lite or else the gauge may have an issue finding it. Very nice product, should be even better with the new trainer.

So I don't need to download like the website says? The install will do it for me?


Ugh, the installer opened Chrome and started the download the same as before.. and now it just hanged :-(

I'm trying IE... would rather not have to do another browser... I download gigantic files all the time no problem.. usually people say IE is the one with big file problems.. at one point early today, I got to 80% then it just goes to zero bytes.. crossing fingers on IE..

You could install the browser to download that file, then uninstall it once you got it. Once you have it on your system, you won't need it again.

You should really try that download manager since you are losing packets and a download manager would always continue the download from where it got stuck, while checking the file to be sure that all is well.

Hmmm IE failed, but it's letting me 'resume'.. Chrome wouldn't let me do that.. Also trying on my Android tablet..


One thing that seems weird.. the web site says 1.4 GB.. but when I'm going to download it keeps saying 998MB.. is 1.4 the 'installed' size? Or is that the actual size the file should be?

The 998MB is the correct download size, so if you manage to download 998MB, you are fine. The installed size is bigger, of course, which is probably why the website says 1.4GB.

IE successfully downloaded.. installing now  :rolleyes:

 

Wierd, I bought Global FTX during the Xmas sale and had no problem and that is a lot bigger!

Looks very cool.. now I just gotta figure out how to get VC going.. I registered on the Flight1 forum, but don't really see a section of VC integration. Found a review that said if I register on Milviz forum, I can get special setup files for those? I have the 310, b55 and 407. Funny the 407 came with a configuration app, and on the second page GTN is there, but it won't respond to any clicks on the second page.

 

Now I'm gonna have to get that upgrade for the RealAir Duke Turbine.. also grab the A2A 182! Oh, whoa is my wallet!

You'll need the addon packs for those products to get GTN integration

Yep, just found that out, really kind of ###### me off.. People say these are great add ons because 50 bucks and you can use it in all your planes.. then I go to Milviz site and they want 10 bucks for each plane.. can really add up.. I'm thoroughly bummed out right now... Making me really hate this hobby that I've already sunk way too much money into... I need to get back into strategy games on Steam.. DCS.. stuff that has sales and doesn't rape your wallet every time you turn around.. I wish I knew this before making the purchase.  :angry:

Well you can use it in any plane as a popup - no ones lying there.

 

There is a development time to make the mods

 

Plus the GTN gauges are very new still... It took rxp a long time to get native integrations. More Devs will catch on hopefully

What is the reason for the config tool? At first I thought that set up it's placement in VC?...

 

I'm just bummed, cause I was watching a youtube video of it in the 310, and I heard the b55 it would work too.. 

 

It's just depressing when you spend this kind of money for something that you think will be worth it because it would work in all your planes, to find out you have to pay a surcharge on each plane..

 

Since my kid has started college, I buy myself less toys, it's been awhile, but this one looked like a good investment, looked awsesome in the videos..

 

I guess I'll just have to save up for the Duke Turbine and A2A 182. it will be awhile..

 

lol. or I should just try and quit this hobby and find other less expensive Genre's!

The config tool just controls the gauge properties etc

 

I hear ya about money - I had to start budgeting for FS addons ($50 / month for fun money)

So the config tool says what buttons are available on the unit?

 

If you don't do the config tool is the 2d popup not available? Or do you need to run the tool for each plane?

 

 

lol.. I'm kind of bummed, since my older boy went to college, I moved up out of the cellar into the playroom with my 15 year old (he already had a desk in there),

So down cellar I was spread out on a table with two monitors (could throw the 2d popup into the 2nd monitor).. right now I'm in my older son's armoire type desk with one monitor :-(. I maybe have to move back in the cellar, even though I do enjoy being in the regular part of the house.. especially with flying, easier to walk around and do stuff during long flights.

For all three of the Milviz products, you have the "option" to purchase the additional 3d models for the GTN gauges. These have been pre-configured so there's no drama involved in getting the GTN gauges working.

 

However, that is not necessary to use the GTN gauges in any of the three. There are in the case of the C310R and B55/E55 in particular, a special panel named "Free Radio". This panel has blanks where you can place ANY gauges in the radio stack you wish. In the Bell 407, the special panel is named Panel.fr and is configurable via the ACM.

 

Further, after registering to have access to the Milviz product support forums, the nice folks at Milviz will assist you in setting things up.
