Anyone done GTN 750 mods for this?

Recommended Posts

It could fit inside the GNS530 bezel.  I might attempt it if no one has yet.

+1 for this. Would love it if someone could integrate the GTN 750 into this bird and post their panel.cfg here.  Also, the King Air C90B!

Ryan - I think it might have been you who managed to integrate the GTN somewhat into the PA46 (from the Flight1 forum) ... if so did you manage to turn off the clickspot GNS530?

What about right side of main screen (sorry not sure how you call it)?

750 would fit perfect there.

I don't have that plane but with 750 working I would probably buy it even though it's careNOTado.

I actually did finish this a while back - put it in the GNS530 slot.  But your suggestion would be a good idea.  I'm just not sure how to do that.

Nice work with what is there to work with, but there is more TAS and supported integration from other available aircraft models from other developers. In the case of this model, and in the case of the topic-mentioned Carenado C90B, sales are being lost because of the developer's complicity. I love the Turbine Duke V2, but beyond it's sheer power it feels a lot like the Beech C90B. But the sales advantage the TDv2 has is that it embraces and provides ease of integration of avionics, most notably the newer Garmin GTN series.

 

Leaving so much money on the table is confusing to me. PA46, C90B, C210T, etc. could all be rejuvenated with a minimum of effort compared to those model's or additional model's initial development costs.

A lot of airplane devs dont like going back even if there is money at stake. A prime example is the F1 citation mustang. It needs a mod to work in FSX-SE but they wont touch it :blink:

 

I would take a close look at Carenado if it had the GTN 750 in the above models

nice job! can you post your panel.cfg so we can insert it into our Malibu's as well?

It's hard to tell from a customer standpoint if doing a revised GTN integration would be a good idea.  I'm not sure how much actual net profit RA made when they redid the TDuke v2 with GTN integration.  I think there is a bit more development time than people think.  And especially since Carenado is a quantity over quality company I can hardly see them redoing their planes with GTN integration.  Thankfully we do have the RA T Duke (and hopefully the upcoming Super Legacy), and A2A planes.  Also don't forget Milviz with their GTN integration.  I think a C310 GTN750 only integration is coming out as well.  (In case you don't own the 650 you can install the 750 and use the default GPS).

 

I'd really enjoy if Flight1 suprised us all with an older Mooney, with GTN integration.  No one has done a decent Mooney.  There's a few lite ones out there, Carenado's older model, Lionheart "lite" Acclaim, etc.... but we could use one of those.  I suppose there's no market left in the single piston category anymore...  they've been done to death in my opinion...  except maybe a Legacy with Twin Turbos hehe!!

Boy do I fully agree with that! The recent A2A Commanche is the high performance, carrying-capacity, alternative,  I need to build a new system in the next six months and am limiting my purchases, watching FSX-S and P3D in interim.

I wish RA would do a killer Meridian but I don't suppose there are many of those in the RW with steam gauges which would be optimal IMHO with GTN integration - T. Duke style. I could handle the glass if it worked right and didn't kill performance. I just described the GTN though, so for a GTN owner the ultimate airplane is steam gauges/GTN integration and that usually means something less than cutting edge in the real world.

 

This could work though (I mean swapping the GNS for GTN or maybe integration for both):

Ryan,

 

I got the (FSX) GTN750 display in the VC but pressing any GTN button brings up the default Garmin?

 

So, I have to use Shift + 9 to get the GTN750 popup to make selections, like to get the map to display.

 

 

The large default 530 bezel takes away part of the GTN's normal screens?

 

Also, does the flight plan on the GTN show up on the P46T's MFD?

 

If this GTN750 is supposed to be fully operational in the VC then my setup is missing something.

 

Actually I wanted to use this also in P3D because Reality XP cannot be used there.
