Why is the GNS530 displaying BRG instead of TRK ?

Recommended Posts

Hi Ed,


Firstly, thank you for your gauges.

I recently migrate from FS9 to FSX SE (never too late), and cannot use my RXP gauges anymore.

Yours have most of the functions I need for simulation, so I am happy with it.

And LPV approachs available for all Europe is the icing on the cake. :smile: ILS approach is an endangered species in our countries.


But why is your 530 displaying BRG at the top center of the main NAV screen (page 1), while the real unit states TRK? :unknw:

This field is not editable. (not sure on the real one, but I think not )


And if I may quote you from an older topic:



I will point out that BRG isn't very useful as compared to DTK when using a GNS... but... :shrug:


What is indeed useful is to have DTK and TRK on the same screen, so you can at a glance estimate and correct your drift (more accurately your track angle error).

The problem doesn't exist with the 430 as you can edit all the fields.


Any chance to get this fixed in a near future?


Thank you for your answer, and happy new year

Hi Olivier. I see no replies to your January post, but I suspect you've already reached a resolution by installing the most recent 530W.

Hi, Jim.

Actually, no, I missed this update.

So thank you very much for your post as my query is now satisfied.

Thanks to Mindstar to have adressed this issue, it seems they are better with software than communication:biggrin:

Happy flights

I have the same issue with BRG being displayed instead of TRK on the Nav screen page one top centre. How do I modify this please.

Latest version installed.

For a WAAS enabled 530 it will display BRG instead of TRK.
