We are indeed working on the final bits and pieces of the RXP GNS 530W/430W V2 for FS-SEX9 P3D.

I'm so sorry you've missed the link. We've now put a box around the link which we have moved closer to the download button in case it was not legible enough.

Hello,

 

Very good new! I have a couple of questions about this release

 

1-  I have the PFC 430W controllers. Should I buy the 430+hardware controller? or with this new release is included the hw control?

2 - Where I can find the discount coupon. I'm interested in the 430 + 650 products

3 - Is the 430 database updated?

From the Reality XP plugin perspective, there is no need to repurchase the GNS Hardware: GNS V2 will detect and use it.

However, we cannot guarantee the hardware is working fully with XP11.

 

As for the coupon, the "download 10% reduction coupon" blue button is right above the "download e-commerce installer" gray button (both on the reality-xp.com/index2.html page).

 

As for the database:

First of all, congratulations on your release.

 

A question:  If an aircraft already has the 3D modeling in place for a GNS 530 (or 430) with the default X-Plane GNS in use, does it still require developer integration for these RXP units in order to use them in a 3D cockpit? Or is possible to 'swap out' the existing default GNS that is displaying on the panel with one of these?

Unlike the GTN, every single X-Plane aircraft I know off include either or both the GNS 530W and the GNS 430W (stock X-Plane GPS). 

 

This gives you the quick route to replace the stock GPS screen with the Reality XP GNS 530W/430W V2 screen in just editing the RealityXP.GNS.INI [GNS_#30_#.PANEL2D] and [GNS_#30_#.PANEL3D] accordingly. However, this won't tie the 3d controls to the Reality XP plugin as-is.

 

We are now working on updating our GTN to the latest GTN Trainer and with the plugin stability and enhancements we have done with the GNS and once done, we will see how we can 'automate' as most as possible such integrations if this is possible.

Thanks. So then if understand you correctly, the screen will be replaced in the 3D cockpit and will show the RXP unit instead of the stock X-Plane GNS, but the 3D buttons and knobs would not function, and one would have to use the popup to control the unit.

 

Is it possible to assign hardware buttons to control the RXP GNS? (I assume so, but I better check!)

I'd say it is more generic than that: you can command the RXP GNS 530W/430W V2 using its custom commands published to X-Plane (see the GNS V2 user's manual). Whether you trigger these commands from hardware, from keyboard, from motion sensor device etc... it will work as long as X-Plane knows how to convert your input to X-Plane commands!

Yes, first like announced it comes with a more recent trainer, which includes trainer bug fixes, performance enhancements and new features. It also comes with an updated database of its own dated 2010.

 

You might want to read the thread right below this thread in the forum though:

The GNS 530W/430W V2 integral lighting offers additional configuration options than the GTN.

 

Will you be adding this to the GTN in a update?

Yes indeed, it is already in our code base now! By the way, since we are yet to release the GTN update until we finish the trainer 6.21.1 compatibility task, there is a window of opportunity to try adding a  few more ideas for panel integration. Don't hesitate to tell us and we'll see what we can do!

There is no foreseen issues with v1.8 but it has not be specifically tested as the GNS 530W/430W V2 is supersedes the older 1.8. Do you have something specific in mind in using both at the same time?!?

I just wanted to keep the old version around until I can test the new v2 on my system. So I was hoping I could do that without having to uninstall the old version. Maybe just rename some folders or something like that?

If there is any issue, you can rename the old plugin file to: "[XPL]\Resources\Plugin\rxpGNS.xpl.disabled"

 

This will prevent X-Plane to load it.

I know we have PM on this but I would like a few more CUSTOM DATAREFS for both GNS and GTS.

The RXP/radios/indicators/gps_discrete_out is very hard to work with for a none programmer.

 

Here is what I would love to add, marked with in red.

And if possible the TERR warning for the middle with dataref for TAWS TERRAIN WARNING.

A quick snap shot of Bell 429 in X-Plane 11.

I have been wondering if in the GNS 530/430 and GTN 750/650 that the second page on switch on showing TEST actual out puts any information.

This is working as it should, sorry for asking.

but the 3D buttons and knobs would not function

 

True. The reason for this is that the actual 3D objects themselves are tied to X-Plane commands. For example the FPL button on a 3D object of the GNS430 is connected to X-Plane's default "sim/GPS/g430n1_fpl" command. To work with the RXP GNS, it needs to be connected to RXP's equivalent commands instead, and this can only be done with changing the 3D object. And this is best done by the developers.
