G1000 Map Orientation Issue

Recommended Posts

I am having an issue on the Phenom 100 is both FSX and Prepar3d 2.4.

The Map orientation in the G1000 defaults to 'North Up'.

When I try to change the orientation to "Track Up' it does not hold and it returns to North Up. 

Regardless of whether I try to hit 'ENT' or the centre of the FMS cursor knob.

Has anyone had a similar experience and/or a fix?

I am using the latest version of the aircraft that was just d/l yesterday to see if that fixed the problem but sadly it did not.

Thanks for any and all help.

Hi Phil,


Inside the Gauges folder look for the file "EMB500_G1000.CAB". Inside that archive look for the file "G1000_configEMBP100.xml". Line 112 of that file shows the default map orientation which is "north up". You have a choice of 4 different orientations which you can make the default.


Extract "EMB500_G1000.CAB" into a directory of the same name without the ".CAB" extension. Place this directory in the Gauges folder. Make changes to files within this folder not the CAB. Make backups before ...
