GTN750 manual install

Recommended Posts

1. Backup any file you modify before making changes.
2. Open panel.cfg and make the following changes:

//--------------------------------------------------------
[Window08]
Background_color=0,0,0
size_mm=937,887
ident=14401
zorder=99
window_size= 0.345, 0.525
window_pos= 0.650, 0.470

gauge00=F1GTN!GTN750,  0,0,937,887,UNIT1.POP

//--------------------------------------------------------
[Vcockpit02]
Background_color=0,0,0
size_mm=512,512
visible=0
pixel_size=1024,1024
texture=$Panel_2

gauge00=F1GTN!GTN750,  1,4,521,308,UNIT1.VC        
gauge01=EMB505_G1000!COMMON_UPDATE_G1000MFD, 0,0,1,1  
gauge03=EMB505CAR!ToggleCARG1100,   64,0,400,64
gauge04=CAREMB505_G1000!GPS_Twas,   0,0,1,1

//--------------------------------------------------------
Save panel.cfg.

This gives you the screen of the GTN750 but not the bezel that has buttons/knobs/etc. In order to use anything on the bezel you have to popup [Window08]. There is a clickspot on the left side of the Vcockpit MFD bezel.

It also keeps the Carenado MFD as a popup window if you want to input LFE, temp, etc. Clickspot is still active where Carenado put it.

3. Copy "F1GTN.ini" from the directory of another aircraft (that has a GTN750) and paste it into the Carenado Phenom 300 directory. Same directory containing the "aircraft.cfg" file.

4. Good to go.

Oops! Clickspot for the popup Carenado MFD is way too big and interferes with the top lines of the GTN750. So make this change in "panel.cfg":

 

[Vcockpit02]

gauge03=EMB505CAR!ToggleCARG1100,                240,    0, 50,  15

 

To get the same size clickspot on the PFD:

 

[Vcockpit01]

gauge04=EMB505CAR!ToggleCARG1000,                 240,    0, 50,  15

Oops #2. GTN750 did not completely fill the MFD's bezel. I thought it was just reflection until I noticed it at night. Change this:

 

[Vcockpit02]

gauge00=F1GTN!GTN750, 1,4,521,320,UNIT1.VC

Hi,

How do you get the coordinates for the VC to place the GTN in. I am trying to do this for a diffrent aircraft and really struggling. Thanks
