Am I correct in assuming that the Mindstar G1000 DOES NOT provide vertical guidance during a RealNav loaded LPV approach?

Hmm ? is this correct because i bought the mindstar 4/5 series. I was about to purchase  the real nav data. i want to get the gps gnss lpv etc approaches ? Is this included and will they work in the gps

The G1000 is fully capable of flying a WAAS approach, with the correct autopilot. Why are you assuming it doesn't provide vertical guidance?

 

Second... RealNav has the WASS/LPV approaches. They work in the 430/530. We even have custom nav gauges we provide to support vertical guidance.

Thanks ED.... I should have read the first sticky!... almost have things functional at my end .. thank you for the re response update above..

I installed the realnav data. I have now flow a few lpv approachs in a corrando mooney and the stock cessna 172 

I tired this one in the 530 430

 

KSBA rnav ( gps) rwy 07  ( just an example ) ( also tried several others )

 

I had no vertical guidance  on the HSI or v2.. Trying to fly the lpv .. Kap 150 in app mode

Evidently the mindstar/530 with realnav data works with lpv

No vertical guidance

Vertical guidance is available for aircraft that use the variables we publish.

Thanks Ed

 

Im  going look around the mindstar for the specific aircraft that can utilize the variable you publish...It is entirely possible i missed that important bit of info...... Pete

I believe Air2Air have aircraft that support LPV with our GNS units.

Hello Ed,

 

I have never heard of Air2Air.  Would it be possible to post a link.  I did a web search but it came back with aviation photography companies.  Oops, A2A. Duh!

 

Thanks,

Tried an lpv into rochester Kroc  on the a2a.. 182 and stock ms 172.. (rnav 07 )approach with mindstar and data updates and im still not getting vertical guidance.... ( lpv )....using the 530

 

Can someone else try that approach and let me know if they are picking up Vertical ... I have horizontal...

 

or .....

 

Can someone suggest a combo of plane and specific approach that give them lpv and ill give it a shot to see if i have things set up properly

Stock 172? As in the one our installer places a 430/530 combo? Or are all the aircraft ones you have installed into?

 

The A2A 172 is directly set up to support our GNS units, I don't know about the 182 as the one I saw had a G1000 in it.

 

In short, I'm not convinced you're using something that is aware of our vertical guidance variable.

what i mean is that i tried the microsoft 172 ... thats what i mean by stock..

I was able to use the a2a 182 but no lpv , its the only a2a plane i own

the a2a 182 im using is not g1000 and i successfuly installed the 530 into it. just no verical guidance

 

Ill keep working on it...

Paste the contents of your 172's panel.cfg for me please.

 

As for the A2A 182, I don't know if it's "Mindstar-aware"...

Did you create this panel.cfg? I ask because we have gauges that we install when we create a panel.cfg for our GNS units.

 

The default sim gauges will never reflect LPV vertical guidance unless we hack the code... which isn't going to happen.

 

We have provided replacement gauge. The file is MPI_CDIGauge.gau and contains replacement VOR instruments.

I probably did create that panel and your gps unit shows up  when i select the  gps from the menu.. ..Maybe i should just reinstall your product into fsx again and the MPI_CDIGaige will reinstall

I dont mind doing this as long as i don't have to reauthorize  because i have no authorization left .

I said nothing about needing to reinstall anything.

 

Simply check to see if the MPI_CDIGauge.gau file is installed in the Gauges folder.

yes is it is in this folder

Ok... I've cleaned up your panel.cfg... a few words of wisdom:

 

1 - Do not run more than one 'brand' of GNS in your panel. If you're using RXP, ONLY RXP, if you're using Mindstar, ONLY Mindstar... don't mix and match. That goes for the default FS GNS as well.

2 - Keep your window entries in order... you ended up with two entries for Window02.

 

Here's an updated one that uses the VOR gauges:

So i have been busy working away on LVP approaches.

Seems to me that even with an updated database and minstar 172 i cannot get the 172 to follow the glideslope on a LVP . I would expect the aircraft to follow the GS down after the FAF and gs intercept.

In my case i get the gps was approach. ( lap ) . set the a/p to APP and ensure the approach is activated.

Every time i try this the plane blows through the gs and never follows the gs down to DA . ( I've tried it both ways with alt enabled and disabled ). 

Any thoughts

(btw I'm doing this on the mindstar texture 172) in fsx

There is no autopilot connection, sorry. That would require either we provide a custom autopilot or we hack the sim itself.
