Are you saying there is a mod of the GTN750 to add weather?  If so how do you do this?

Thanks Poppet, the paint is mine and I have five paints for the T Duke V2  all located at Flightsim.com just look for turbine duke and my name (name is in my artwork banner below)

 

Mark W  the weather radar is a gauge made by a member here and is free and it will overlay the GTN 750 screen. Here is a link to his thread about it:

 http://forum.avsim.net/topic/459050-another-radar-gauge-for-vc-window-usage/

 

You will have to go into the thread several pages near the end to find the last active link to the download and a couple post in about the middle of the thread talk about the GTN install. It was very easy to do by the way and, as you can see, it works perfectly.

Awesome video, and I never thought of using that gauge on a second GTN. What an idea. Thanks for the info.

Thanks, it works out great if you have two gtn's. You can also put it in almost any other similar sized glass panel and it comes with great instructions on how to do it. It was actually easy to do so don't be put off thinking it is complex. 

 

I hope to make some more Duke videos with my other paint schemes soon and very happy to have your positive comments. 

 

Thanks,

paul

Would you mind posting the relevant sections of your panel.cfg.  I am trying to get this in and have the bezel but its just a black screen with no radar.  Nothing seems to be working.  thanks,

Here is mine,,,now yours might start with a different number but my two GTN 750 gauges are 19 and 20.

 

gauge19=F1GTN!GTN750VC, 2,563,390,460,UNIT1
//gauge20=F1GTN!GTN750VC, 398,563,390,460,UNIT2 
gauge20=RolasnRadar!ORadGauge, 398,563,390,460, sweep|beam|icing|starton|UNIT2
 
Copy/paste the above over your two GTN 750 gauges in the panel vc section. If your computer explodes my phone is off the hook and I have left for the Islands.
 
 
Other things that could cause a black screen are not having ASN active,,not having the latest MS files as outlined in the instructions and not having the weather gauge installed in your gauges folder. Also the click points are hidden and you must move your mouse around the screen to find them. You will see you pointer turn to a hand when on a click point. I have set my gauge config to be on when master switch is on so it is always on and I don't have to search for the click spot. Other click  spots your will find will be tilt and range.
 
NOTE: I just noticed the post has the text "sweep|beam|icing|starton|UNIT2 " under the gauge line,,,it needs to be in line right afer the gauge line and not under. And make sure to copy it exactly as it needs the vertical bars between each word.

It uses the ASN weather API correct? I use another weather engine so obviously it won't work with my current setup....

Anyhow, great video and thanks for posting  :rolleyes:

You might email the author and ask if he plans to get it to work with other weather engines. I  have chatted with him and he seemed interested in helping.

Thanks, I'll contact him. I use FSGRW and they have posted on their web page  " A weather radar API is being worked on. This will be a documented API for free usage". Unfortunately that has been posted on their web page for sometime?

 

Cheers

Martin

 

P.S. The thought of the T Real Air Duke with both the GTN750 and a weather radar...Wow!

OK it worked!  Just one question, are you able to modify the range, etc with this method of install?  If I move my mouse over the screen I get a + and - but it does not do anything.

Center top of screen is range and it does work. Top left of screen is tilt and that also works and middle to bottom of screen is on and off. Just click on the plus and minus and see what it does.

 

You have to use you mouse wheel to adjust when you are over a plus or minus area.

 

I might work up a short video later to show the different click areas and what they do.

Here is a short video showing the operation areas of the GTN 750 weather integration.

Thanks for the video, that helps.  Does the tilt actually do anything or is the return controlled by ASN ?

My video shows it doing something but not sure how or what or where. Just a cool little feature that I would only use if flying high above the weather and want to know conditions below to descend.

You can remove the "|UNIT2" from your panel.cfg as I don't read it.

 

About theTilt angle, it's really more than a cool feature :)

 

You may find very detailled information on using an airborne weather radar over internet.

For example, if you face a CB in front of you, you can increase step by step the tilt so you know the treat height and decide if you need to avoid it.

 

Another way is to switch to "profile" mode, but it's not (yet) supported by ASN API.
