"GTN V5 PC Trainer support:

Geo-referenced charts: if an approach is loaded and the chart option is selected, its chart is automatically loaded and displayed behind the map. Also, the geo-referenced airplane is displayed on the chart page.

Updated databases: full worldwide terrain, no need to buy the DVD anymore, updated navigation database: 1405, SafeTaxi, basemap, charts

WAAS approaches outside of USA, depending on availability. There are some in Europe, We suggest checking the official European EGNOS website for compatible airports, there are a few compared to the US

ADS-B traffic with directional target information, this replaces the old TIS and provides a different angle in traffic awareness and avoidance

Utilities/scheduler: ability to schedule custom messages

Ability to change fuel units to metric

The GTN will now uses all CPU cores, this provides a smoother overall experience with multiple units.
The CPU Core option is not available anymore.

P3D 2.5 hotfix 3 support."

 

I have been test flying this release for several weeks and it is great  :P

Should we also update the Garmin GTN Trainer? When I installed 1.08 it took me to the Garmin page to download, but I ignored that because I already have it on my system. Now I'm worried I should have reinstalled the Garmin software too. Everything seems to be working right in FSX though.

Yes you will need to install the NEW Garmin Trainer (v5). That is where all the additional data comes from.

I hope there will be support to add the GTN 750/650 into Realair Lancair Legacy once the P3D version is released.

Just a quick question before I start this.  The Garmin site says the new version 5 of their trainer only has north and south American terrain and purchase of the disc is required to get the rest of the world. Does F1 have a different download for the trainer?

Dang, I was hoping to avoid more updating. Thanks for the clarification though. Downloading the 5.00.1 Garmin trainer right now.

That is a Garmin documentation error.  Just go ahead.

Strange, that link takes me to   " What's New with Version 1.07"

It's not a big deal... it's obviously working for everyone... they probably haven't updated their main site yet.  It's common for users in the F1 forums to get product links first before it goes to their main site.

Yes... just be sure to redownload the airplane red wrapper file from the F1 Tech site

Thanks Bert for the heads-up. Yet as someone mentioned above, the Fligh1 website and also the link you provided sends me to version 1.07 and it states:

 

"....The terrain map included with the GTN 750 and 650 includes North America and Central America only. ...if you want a terrain map of the rest of the world, we are working on having this available as a download in the near future, so no additional DVD purchase will be necessary...."

 

This is the old version - I used two different browsers, refreshed page, and cannot see the new version! That's odd...

 

Edit: Noticed now that the download posted in F1 website is for Version 1.08. Probably F1 didn't update yet the complete webpage....starting the download...

Do I have to pay again if I have purchased the earlier version?

Thanks

The update is free! You download and just choose reinstall. Make sure you download the upgraded Garmin trainer software (the setup program brings you right to the download), that way you will get global terrain functionality!

I'd add the Flysimware planes (C441 and upcoming MU-2).

 

Alabeo PA-32

Good point.

Oh, those would be awesome additions for sure. I'd hope that Aerosoft also considers their TwinOtter.

 

So there are a few planes (me is only looking for GTN750 compatible ones, the 650 can surely be added manually to a few more) but I would always welcome even more. Guess the RXP spoiled me in the sense of driving all my GPS-capable planes in some way or another.

 

Anyway, this GTN stuff is neat and Flight1 keeping up the pace of updates adds to the amazement. Would be nice seeing a X-Plane installer btw. B)
