GNS430/530 freeze when "direct to" or loading flightplan P3D v2.5

Recommended Posts

Hi everybody.

 

i just uninstalled the 1.08.0005 and installed the 1.08.0015 in my p3d v2.5, because i had some problems with this verion, hoping that they are fixed now.

But now i have new issues.

 

Installation was fine. no problems.

 

i put the GNS into my carenado C340.

When i tested first it freezed when i tried to load an activate a flightplan.

I mean the Gauge freezes, not the sim.

So i wanted to test only with a direct to a waypoint.

But in this case the gauge freezes as well.

in the moment i clicked on "activate" it freezes.

 

installed the gns as admin and did everything as described.

 

below there is my panel.cfg (commented out the original GPS Gauge)

 

Hope you can help me.

 

good night

 

Rico

Window IDENT doesn't match with the value you're telling the gauge to use. Might want to read up on what that set of numbers in the 5th parameter are for. Understanding them will make your life a whole lot easier when you go to add these to other aircraft.

Thanks for reply.

 

Ok. you're right. i forgot this to edit :-) this was the issue that the gauge couldn't powered up in the GPS window. This works now after editing the 5th parameter for the popup gauge to 794. the other ones i didn't edit, because in VC it should be -1.

But the Main Problem still exists. The Gauge freezes when activating a flight plan or a direct to waypoint.

Well, it doesn't behave that way for anyone else... and that's not me being dismissive... it's just a known position that the code itself works ok. Now we have to figure out what is happening on your system.

 

1 - Are you using saved flights to load the aircraft?

2 - Do you have a subscription to RealNav?

3 - If you load a new flight, can you build a flight plan and fly it?

Hi Ed.

 

(1) No i do not use saved flights. I create a new one every time

(2) I have a subscription, and an actual database. tried out with the microsoft database but there is the same issue.

(3) I could build a flight plan. that is no problem, but as soon as i activate the flightplan, the GNS Unit freezes
