Recommended Posts

"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 in FSX and it is great  :P

Bert, thanks.  query, the normal F1 page shows version 1.8, but the F1 technology page doesn't mention being new version. trust it still works.   Also, the instructions say uninstall Trainer Lite 2 but it won't uninstall, gives error 1316 the specified account already exists . Of course the 2 version I have installed was to update the 750  which went on top of the one I installed to update the old 530 reality XP.  Any ideas, or maybe just install the V5 and ignore the V2 lite - or bang my head against the wall? Any help much appreciated . .

 

 

Edit - strike that  the Aviation Tech one for P3D worked fine.  Also, the problem with the garmin Lite - if anyone else gets -  was because I'd followed the update to get v5 data into v2  from elsewhere here.  Running the version 2 lite installer again and ticking remove did the trick and I already had the 1.6 gb of V5 downloaded ready!

This is what the Flight1 support forum is for.

 

If you install the Garmin Trainer Lite, current version (5), and it works all by itself, you are good to go, I would say.   The GNS530 Trainer is a totally different program and plays no part in this.

Sorry but I'm abit confused. I was planning on purchasing Flight1's GTN 650/750 for P3D. Has there just been an update to these gauges or is this for the trainer only?

It is an update to the gauges.   They now interface with the newer Garmin V5 Trainer.

crossed posts again.

 

Bert, thanks yes aware of the the forum - just you seem more up to date.  i know the 530 nothing to do with it, merely meant I'd installed v2 lite to update the 530 before the 750 was available so already had. Then downloaded the v5 to update the v2 data before this update was available.  in the event was editing my post to correct all this while you were correcting me - ho,ho!   :lol:

 

Ryan, no, the control panel remove didn't work and gave the 1316 error because of the v5 data hack I did to the v2 lite to get the worldwide terrain/WAAS for before this latest 1.8 update was known about.  if everyone follows   :mad:

 

And on the way down he met the barrel of bricks going up!

That shouldn't be the issue.  I used v5 data in v2 for a long time...  Can you reinstall v2 then uninstall it?

that's what I ended up trying  for - a reinstall - but as it gave option of install, repair or remove, I therefore tried the remove and it worked.  As 1316 is a registry type error I assumed was because of the data hack direct into the v2.  was only a problem when i wanted to remove v2.  v5 data had been working fine.  either way it is now all OK and 1.6 gb of un-needed v2 is gone

I'm assuming just re-download and re-activate?

 

Cheers, Rob.

 

Yep, and of course uninstall trainer v2 and download and install trainer v5

Flight1 says: uninstall current GTN and install new GTN.

 

You will be prompted to download and install the current (V5) Garmin trainer.

And according to the developer a "big surprise" is coming. Let's hope it has something to do with weather.

After uninstalling the old trainer and installing the V5 trainer the 750 GTN is no longer connected to the battery bus or the avionics bus.

How do you solve this problem ?

Did you also uninstall and re-install the GTN gauge?

 

Mine is still connected... (FSX version..)

 

If still problems, post in the Flight1 support forum!

Wow, I'm impressed with this version ... I don't recall the older versions of the 750 having this much functionality?  And the most impressive part is it's barely using any VAS, smooth, fluid, fast, no impact to FPS.

 

Who should I hug for this improvement?

 

Bravo.

 

Cheers, Rob.

Just a quick one guys, haven't updated to v5 yet but noticed the autopilot loses accurate tracking at 16x time acceleration on GPS mode after a minute, anybody else experience this?

Great information, thank you! I need some additional help on this.

 

I purchased the GTN 750 two weeks ago and using it because on of the planes I fly in real world has it installed. I also "updated" it to the database from last year. So now my question, I somehow couldn't figure out, how I get the update file. Also after creating a new account for the forum (the old log in probably had expired) the access to the forum is denied. I read somewhere that I need a moderators permission also. But how?

 

So my primary wish is to update, can someone please help me in how to do that?

 

Secondary question but not so important, how did you guys manage to have access to the forum about the Garmin GTN series?

 

Many greetings from Germany,

 

Manfred
