F1 GTN 750 information

Recommended Posts

After reading Ray Marshall's excellent review, recently, on F1's GTN 750, I purchased same to run on the RealAir Lancair Legacy V2 and Turbine Duke V2. The review was written in 2014 which makes me a bit of a johnny-come-lately but indeed Ray's comment, that this changes everything certainly has come true. It is absolutely amazing!

 

My question - Is there a way of incorporating this into the panel of the Carenado Phenom 100 OR other aircraft - not the pop-up only - and if so, is there a website or sites that address this - ie requirements, how-to's, etc?

 

I am running FSX SP2 on Windows 7.

 

Thanks for any help.

For the most part, that is not possible without access to the interior model's source file. As a crude analogy, gauges are "projected" onto mesh objects that have been assigned to a special texture material definition. The gauges are then listed in the panel.cfg file with position and size parameters.

Thanks for that. Bert Pieke sent me his Carenado Phenom 300 panel modification for the GTN750 which I installed this morning. He did an incredible job that greatly enhances the 300 flight experience. Indeed the ability to incorporate the GTN750, and/or others, in add-on aircraft, changes the game.

 

It is a selling point for the sim aircraft developers, who can now provide a cross-aircraft, familiar GPS/NAV/COM/ MFD solution which has at its core, current real-world application, in an extemely intuitive device both real and simulated. Amazing!

 

Indeed as Ray Marshall noted in his review - this changes everything.

I am glad to hear that. Bert does a pretty awesome job given the limitations the compiled model presents.

 

More and more developers are beginning to offer "built-in" solutions for the GTN series and Mindstar series that allow these wonderful options to be seamlessly installed in GA aircraft, which is of course their intended use. :Nerd:
