GNS 530 flight plan loading issue

Recommended Posts

I recently purchased the Mindstar GNS 430/530 unit for my A2A Piper Comanche running in P3D v3.4 Academic.  The A2A Comanche come with a configurator that drops the 530 into the panel correctly and the GNS unit seems to work.  I am trying to figure out how it works with flight plans.  When I load a flight plan into P3D it is not sending it to the GNS 530.  When I use the default P3D GPS in the Comanche, or even any of the other aircraft in P3D, and I load a flight plan it loads to the GPS when I enter the sim and the plane loads.  Am I missing something with the GNS 530?  Does it have the ability for the sim to load the P3D Flight Plan into the unit as the plane is loaded into the sim?


Thanks for the help

No it does not support loading the flight plan from the sim.  This product was originally designed for use in training simulators and there is no predefined flight plan load in those.  The student was always expected to enter the flight plan into the 430/530 in the simulator.

Thanks for the reply.  I downloaded the manuals for the 430 and 530 so I guess time to hit the books.
