Yes it works just beautifully, especially if you add the GTN750!

Thank you for your readback. So buying via carenado homepage shouldn't be any problem for prepar3d v3. Without GNT750 flying is hopefully also possible ? brgds

Oh yes - the GTN750 is just a nice plus if you like it but the native a/c flies just fine w/o it.

I bought this aircraft ror P3DV3 then bought the navigraph upgrade from Carenado only to find the navigraph only works in FSX at the moment.

 

Be warned.

I purchased the EMB Phenom today and it is just amazing. A v3 Installer is also available ;-)

Navigraph Extension version 1.2 I would avoid, unless you want to put in every single altitude for every waypoint from start to finish.  

 

I honestly haven't flown this airplane in a long while since i bought Aerosoft's Airbus, with their newest update.  Their FMS works like a dream in that plane.

Where can I find the p3dv3 installer? I bought my phenom from FSS. As recently as yesterday the version there was 1.3 and I could not get it to install into p3dv3

 

Cheers

Same here. I bought the Phenom 300 a few days ago. The installer is v1.3 but it's not possible to install the in P3D v3. The option is not available. Using the browse option to point to the P3d v3 directory H:\....\Prepar3D v3  results in an installation on C:\Program Files(x86)\Carenado installer... and no aircraft in P3D.

 

Now waiting for a solution by Carenado.

Problem solved by Carenado. Turned out to be a wrong installer on the Simmarket download site. Support was very good.

There is no wrong installer.  It's either v1.3 or v2.0.  Carenado has not updated the installer for this aircraft.  You have to manually install it like you stated in post #11.  I suspect when they upgrade from 1.3 to 2.0 as they stated they would do, the installer will automatically install it just like in FSX.  I agree they have very good support but wish they would simply update their installers and a lot of support questions would suddenly disappear.

 

Best regards,

Hi everyone for the last few years or ever since I got into flight simming I have flown exclusively only PMDG aircraft for a number of reasons, mainly due to my disability and then the PMMDG 737 and 777 which has,high level of automation I also use PATC (thanks Jim Young for your assistance there) After flying exclusively only PMDG aircraft, I find Carendo has left a lot to be desired from a tutorial compared to PMDG. I have watched what FS Mania calls a tutorial but I find it more of a demonstration aimed at people who are already experienced in flying small biz-jets . I think I am going to fall in love with this plane as it opens up many more airfields to me, but right now I need to know a simple question about the G10000 Prodigy like is their a switch to switch it on. It the life blood of that aircraft and is very important. When it is active and this is the way u can make adjustments, when you hover your mouse over a switch it highlights green signifying it can be adjusted. The only way I can get it to work is top menu/views/prodigy 1000, this mean's I can have either the virtual cockpit or the G10000 Prodigy in use at any one time but not together

 

all for now

but right now I need to know a simple question about the G10000 Prodigy like is their a switch to switch it on..

 

There is no switch to turn it on.  It comes on automatically when you start up the aircraft.  You can turn on/off the co-pilot's PFD display (to save some resources) by clicking on the screw in the upper left hand corner of the PFD.  You may have to move your cursor just below the screw to click it on and off.  It does not work to turn off the PFD on the pilot's side although it appears it should work (probably a bug).  To open up the PFD (the display on the left) or MFD (the display on the right), you click on "Prodigy" at the top of each display.  On the MFD the system shows you where to click to open up the map display.

 

As you probably know, there's an extensive manual about the G1000 in the Carenado folder but it does not tell you how to turn things on or off.  It just shows you how to do things once the displays are on.

The Navigraph upgrade works just fine in P3D...

So it is confirmed that it works for the Phenom 300 and the the new C90. Then, for heaven's sake why does it not work for the Hawker? I asked Carenado a couple of time but they don't seem to know themselves.

That option is only to open up a new Window.  Did you hit the "A" key to go through all of the views?

Another thing worth mentioning is that the weather radar does NOT work in P3DV3.1 (it does work in 2.5)

If you look at your dll.xml the CMeteo gauge is not even inserted, and if you try to insert it manually it will crash P3D.

I have opened a ticket with Carenado 3 days ago about this, they did not bother to respond, I also inquired about the navigraph upgrade not working in P3DV3. I guess I paid for a product that doesnt work in P3D, even though their page mentions P3D (again, it is working also in 2.5)

 

and I will not even mention the poor AP behavior and flight model (I am not type rated in the phenom but type rated in large transport aircraft)

 

Regards,

John.

I also inquired about the navigraph upgrade not working in P3DV3.

 

I agree the CMeteoxml entry into your dll.xml will cause a crash just after the splash screen and hoping to see an update to fix this but everything else is working, even the Navigraph upgrade.  As in installing the Phenom 300 into P3Dv3, point your navigraph upgrade software to the P3Dv3 folder, then, after the install, look in C:\Carenado\Carenado Installer and you will see all the files related to this software.  Just move the files to the appropriate directories in P3Dv3, the most important being the Carenavigraph.dll in the main P3D folder.  I was also able to upgrade my Nav data via Navigraph too but you have to point Navigraph to the proper location.  You should make sure you have the following entry in your dll.xml too:

 

<Launch.Addon>
    <Name>Carenavigraph</Name>
    <Disabled>False</Disabled>
    <Path>.\Carenavigraph.dll</Path>
  </Launch.Addon>

 

Once this is done, you'll see your Navigraph data being updated for the first time after you start up the Phenom 300.  I admit I didn't get this to work immediately but discovered I forgot to move the carenavigraph.dll into my main P3D folder after installing P3Dv3.1.  I look forward to a new installer for this product too!  They say they are in the process of upgrading all of their products to version 2.0 and that will go a long way in fixing these issues.

I also finally got the update working. However, for me it did not suffice to add permissions to the carenadonavigraph folder as suggested by Carenado. I had to change the permissions for the whole Prepar3D folder albeit I was already running the sim as administrator. After changing the permissions the update completed.

Hi Jim,

Thanks for the info, I just tried installing as you stated, I added the entry in the XML.DLL, but for some reason I dont seem to be able to pickup the navigraph in the G1000 unit.

 

I see a CarenadoNavigraph folder, and also have the carenavigraph.dll file in the main folder, anything else I should move? 

Thanks again!

John.
