Recommended Addon GPSs

Recommended Posts

Hi there,

 

I am looking into purchasing another GPS for my planes. I already have the Garmin GTN 750 from Flight1 but I would like to mix it up with something like the GNS 430.

I have read around and there has been no definitive answer on whether the Reality XP or Mindstar GPS is better and the posts were also quite old. I am not sure if the RXP one would even work on steam edition.

If anyone has one of these GPS systems in FSX:SE I would love to hear about how they work for you and with the Mindstar how well integration went with other aircraft. 

If there are any other decent GPSs id also love to hear about it ;)

 

Cheers,

 

Leighton T.

RXP will not work in FSX:SE at all. The author hasn't supported the RXP products for many, many years now.

 

Mindstar's GNS430 is a very fine representation of the real unit, and is used in real world flight simulators such as Redbird.

Okay, thanks for that. As for integration with payware aircraft it should work fine right?

Well, while I cannot speak for other vendors, I do know that the B55 and C310R from Milviz fully support virtual cockpit 3D integration, as well as popup windows.

 

You can of course integrate them in any aircraft via a popup window.

Have you considered the GTN 650?  If you are looking for a smaller unit than the 750..

 

Or are you looking for a "vintage GPS" unit like the GNS series.. in which case Mindstar is likely your best bet.

I think I am going to be getting the 650 too but I would definitely like to ha E a less overpowered GPS sometimes. I think I'll get it and just hope I can integrate it via the 3D panels of my aircraft. I don't like pop out windows so one fan only hope :)
