RXP GTN 750/650 Touch v2.3 coming up! (now released)

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

I wanted to let you know the next GTN v2.3 update is nearing release!

 

It supports the latest GTN Trainer v6.21 and includes a number of stability enhancements. It also solves the annoying ghost traffic alerts and will support enhanced failures.

Another update: the latest trainer includes a new worldwide obstacle database for rotorcrafts, with power lines and much more. With our GTN 750/650 Touch, it is easy to harness this additional information right in the cockpit, especially with the HTAWS mode.

 

We are nearly done with the update and if all goes well, it should be only a matter of 1 day or 2 before release!

Sorry but I kinda slobbered looking at that.. Like a dog seeing a big chewable bone! Is the Garmin trainer available for download like the 430/530 was? I remember spending a week on that learning every possible scenario 5 years ago before using it in the sim.. If it's real world and theres a manual then I will read every word.. Days u say? Good enough for me!

Hi Russell, the RXP GTN 750/650 Touch uses a Garmin trainer in the backend and it is indeed downloadable from Garmin's website. Our product installer takes care of this for you though.

Hi Jean-Luc,

 

LOL - FYI - those ghost traffic alerts happen in real life too with TIS traffic...

I can't comment about this yet. This might come with this update, with even more options ;-) or come later...

Since I started using Eyefinity yesterday using combined resolution of 7936x2160, all of my nav/com radios are corrupted on A2A Comanche. So now I NEED the GPS, flying blind otherwise!

The A2A integrates with RxP right? so 430/530 or 650/750 can be plugged right in the dash?

A2A aircraft are for FSX P3D.

 

 

 


RxP Site says FSX/P3D coming AFTER X-Plane but definitely on the way.

 

Yes indeed, RXP GTN 750/650 Touch and RXP GNS 530W/430W V2 are coming to FS-SEX3D, no need to look any further in the RXP forums!

Does the real GTN 750 have VNAV and if so will the RXP unit support it?

 

Thanks - Martin

​Hi Martin,

 

No real VNAV - it's geared more towards GA - there is a screen where you can set your vertical descent profile - say you want to be 2000 ft AGL 5 miles from an airport with a 500 FPM VS - it will tell you when to start your descent - same as a GNS...

 

Regards,

Scott

No real VNAV but at least, LPV approaches. Does it count as VNAV?

GTN v2.3 update is coming this afternoon, you might want to download the trainer in advance and wait our update before installing:

 

http://www8.garmin.com/support/download_details.jsp?id=9256

To confirm, is this update for Xplane or FSX/P3D? Purely coincidentally of course ( I am not cursed) my just perfected and tweaked to perfection i7-6900k machine with triple monitor Eyefinity setup just decided to stop working last night out of the blue. Might install a temporary practice machine while I RMA it IF there's an RXP for FSXSE/P3D coming out any moment.

Posted in the X-Plane forum, for X-Plane!

 

I don't want you to drool too much on you now defunct computer, but here is a draft of the release notes:

 

New: Officially released for XP11.
New: Compatible with the latest Garmin GTN Trainer 6.21.
New: GPS satellite reception failure (waas/no-waas/failed).
New: Failures for COM, NAV, XPDR and Audio Panel independently.
New: Screen brightness light source setting.
New: Keys brightness (integral lighting) source setting.
Enhanced: TCAD ghost threats eliminated.

 

Hopefully not too long for FS-SEX3D, it is worth the wait!

What is the ETA of this update? Especially the TCAD Ghost issue fix?

 

How will we be notified when the update is available?

First I will say that I had GTN750/650 and GNS530/430 installed and working great. Now for the update to GTN 2.3.

 

I am getting error from x-plane "Installation of GTN trainer failed. Unable to find Windows registry entry for install location." when starting.

 

The GTN trainer on it's own works okay.

 

Also when installing into XP10 and XP11 it only puts the plugin into XP10. Had to copy over to XP11.

New: Officially released for XP11.

 

OK, seeing as I have to wait for my main PC for FSX for an indefinite time now, I was thinking of getting Xplane 11 for my backup machine and buying one good aircraft and putting the GTN it so I can keep busy next week or two. My question is, do I need a license for every platform? I know my previous purchases were of the 530 for pre steam FSX, but if I buy the GTN for 11 now Xplane will i need to pay again for the FSX version (which has ALL the planes I want to use it in) when my machine's fixed? OR switch it over?

I'm getting desperate here having spent over 5 digits on a computer/software setup and because of a lousy chip and usual software agreements I am staring at a GTN trainer and no sim at the moment! If i could convert my old FSX GNS530 license to xplane that would be perfect, then wait for GTN when machine comes back (prob same timeframe). I just dont want to buy the GTN for Xplane AND FSX....

I feel literally GROUNDED right now..

Thanks a lot for this report, I've identified the issue in the installer. This also affects the GNS installer by the way, which update is planned for tommorow.

Can you please post the content of your "my documents\rxpGtnSim.dll.log" file? I know where this comes from (the trainer) but it is not supposed to trigger, so I'd just like to cross-check.

 

Rest assured, we are on the code right-now and we will issue a quick update ASAP, so your log file is important to us!

Update: the installers are now updated online with the necessary corrections. This was a quick fix and this should be ok now, both the installer XP11 option and the popup message when opening the GTN trainer.

 

You just need to re-download the installers and proceed with installation again.
