I use the 750 and can see no frame impact at all. Tremendously powerful tool. Highly recommend.

Same here, no fps impact and highly addictive, one of the must-have addons.

No impact in frames. It is almost a must-have for FSX or P3D2. I recommend the GTN 750 altough i have both. Yes 65 US each but worth it :)

GTN 750 is in the top 5 addons I've purchased for P3D. And I've bought a lot.

Yep, great addon, and with recent A2A, and RealAir turbo duke, you can fit it into the VC's....brilliant!

 

Cheers,

Only thing to mention is that the GTN does not accept FS flighplans such made with PlanG for ex. So flightplans have to be made within the GTN itself. The plans can be stored for future use.

Can be used via network...just as pup up guide navigation...as EFB...maybe stupid question ...definitely can only be integrated on developer airplanes with those capabilities?

Thanks

It is a 2D gauge and it can be integrated into the VC. There is a thread over at sim forums http://www.simforums.com/forums/gtn-in-vc-panel_topic49354_page1.html you must be registered to gain access to this thread. You can also go for an tablet solution. That works via extended desktop so that you can drag the 2D popup to a tablet of your choice. I did it once with my iPad. Its cool but i like the VC integration more.

Although GTN doesn't accept FSX flight plans, it's a simple workaround. I define my FSX flight plans as "VOR to VOR" and then enter the flight plan into GTN from the kneeboard manually after takeoff (or before if desired) takes only a couple minutes.

G' day Pedro,

sorry cant help you with the network thing. I guess it is not networkable.

To log into the sim forums i think you have to be a registered user.

But feel free to ask further questions :)

Hi Poppet,

 

I tried it with an ipad mini and a software called splashtop. It works via wifi.

No, since it is an "in-process" gauge it cannot be run on a separate computer, unless that computer is also running FSX/P3D and you use software that will allow the two sim versions to be synchronized*.

 

To display the popup on a separate monitor, simply right-click on the top border, and choose "Undock", then drag the new window over to your other monitor.

According to Flight1, weather is not supported.

 

Suggest you visit their support site for more details.

There is a noticeable delay.

 

Splashtop itself, although it works, makes it kinda convoluted to work. It'll basically make your iPad a new monitor but because the resolution is different it doesn't scale that well and you need to zoom in, especially as you want it vertical on your iPad but monitors are generally horizontal.
