Hello

Since Little Nav Map supports exporting flight plans to the native GTN 750/650 Units. Does anyone know how to get the flight plan to load into these units?

 

go to the

F1 GTN/GNS Series Support Forum on Simforums.com

Look at my Hot Sticky topic  [Tip] How to create a gfp Flight plan for import

you get lots of info

Hi Aaron,

You did actually get a pdf with your GTN unit called "Creating Flight Plan and User Waypoint Files for the Flight1 GTN.pdf". If you put your .gfp flight plans in the [P3D installation folder]\F1GTN\FPL folder, you can load your flight plans from within your GTN unit.

To load them from the above location use:

Flightplan / Menu / Catalog / Menu / Import

I seem to be missing something here.  What else is new. :huh:   When I do the' Flightplan / Menu / Catalog / Menu /' the selections that I have are 'Delete All' and a greyed out 'Delete Pending'.  Doing the create new catalog then menu doesn't show it either.  This is with the GTN Complete Package.  Any help is appreciated.  Thank you.

Edit:  A search of the users guide didn't help.

Do you have anything in the folder? Actually, do you have the folder ..\P3D4\F1GTN\FPL?

I seem to recall you need to have at least one GFP file in there.

Yes I have four gfp files in that folder.   One file KTEB-KMVY.gfp was already installed there.  Thanks for the reply.

Be sure you have the latest updates for the trainer. You might try an uninstall reinstall.

I downloaded the latest trainer when I installed the GTN  Complete package.  I Just tried running the trainer itself and no Import selection.  The trainer installation file is GTN_GDU620PCTrainer_6211.

I had exported the flightplans from Little NavMap to the F1GTN\FPL folder.  Is that a potential problem?

Thank you for the help.

What I mean was that you must be shure it is the P3DV4\F1GTN\FPL folder that Little Navmap is exporting to.

Thanks Thomas.  That is the folder that Little NavMap is exporting to.  I think that I will try a remove/reinstall of the Garmin trainer.

Just checked the GTN support forum and it seems that some people are having the same issue. F1 has acknowledged it as a bug which they are working on. Meanwhile, if you still have P3Dv3 installed, you can put the gfp plans in the p3dv3/f1gtn/fpl folder there and p3dv4 will read from that folder. They suspect it's some sort of registry error.

Thanks Vic.  Very good to know information.  At least it isn't just me.  :biggrin:   I never had P3Dv3 so I will have to wait on the fix I guess.

Bill,

You need version 2.03 of the GTN to get the import of flight plan to work. There was an issue on earlier version that cause the problem not to be able to import flight plans.

I supposedly have Version 2.03 and the import flight plan selection isn't there.  Here is my post to Flight1 -

"I purchased and installed GTN Complete for P3Dv4 Version 2.03 or so the installation screen says.  The GTN 650/750's work but I don't have a menu selection for importing flight plans.  When I run the GTN Config program I don't see a version number on the screen.  If I run the Flight 1 Update Tool it shows that I have version 1.11 and in the listed simulators box P3Dv4 isn't shown.  I have uninstalled and reinstalled a few time and I also re-downloaded the .exe file and tried again to no avail.   Any suggestions?  Thank you for the help."

I just received an email from Flight1 tech support with some files to try and a list of log files to send to them after I try these files.  I will report back, but it will be a bit before I can try this out.

Thanks for your reply Richard.
