Hi Tony,

 

Welcome to the forum!

 

All congrats to Alex on the excellent software he develops.

 

I'm curious if you also have the GTN 650 as I've got the 750 and often thinking about buying the 650 as a couple of planes I have allow using both together in their virtual cockpits. For example the Milviz 310R which is fast becoming a favourite plane of mine.

 

Kind regards

Hi Paul,

 

Funny thing my first name here on Avsim was tonyg20 now it is tonyg2000

 

First to answer Seat's question about invalid flightplan waypoints locked in GTN 750

until Garmin trainer is updated to latest navdatabase's in the future

what I do after saving the GFP file and starting Prepar3D load the file into the GFP 750

and preview the route plan any locked waypoint is deleted in the GFP file and then reloaded

and good to go

you can make a user waypoint in place of the locked waypoint if you need to use that part of the route

 

on your question about the 750/650 combo

I don't think you really need to purchase the 650 when you can install the 750 twice in the cockpit

or as 2D popup  and use cross fill that way

I think the 750/650 combo looked very nice in the cockpit

look at some UTube of the units in action and use the same tricks with two 750's instead

Hello

 

Here is some more info on the GTN 750 and waypoints locked

 

at present the GTN 750 is using nav database 1607 from garmin

 

unless you use flight planners with nav database 1607 or less

you will run into the locked waypoints problem

I use Simbrief.com for most of my flight planning but the cycle is 1520 or so

 

I found a little program called Online flight planner (onlineflightplanner.org )

here you can use navdata cycle 1607 and have no locked waypoints problem

 

I will post this info on the F1GTN forum also

Hi Tony,

 

Great find re Online Flight Planner. Just had a good look at it and it's very useful, especially as you have pointed out it enables you to change the AIRAC cycle you want.

 

Hopefully one day Flight1 may update the GTN's to use the latest AIRAC data instead of the Garmin trainer data.

 

We can only hope :-)

 

Kind regards
