GTN 750 Avionics Link

Recommended Posts

I have encountered something that I thought I would pass along in case someone else has run into the same thing and can't seem to work around it.

First, let me set this story up:

You've purchased and installed the Flight1 "complete" package and have used the configuration software found in the Carenado 690B aircraft subfolder to place the GTN 750 in the cockpit panel of the 690B. Everything appears OK and you've successfully completed several flights utilizing GPS flight plans and approaches.  You now attempt to approach an airport and land the 690B, hand-flying it and using the locally provided ILS and GS for assistance only to find out the GTN 750 refuses to communicate with your HSI even though you've entered the proper frequency and activated it in your NAV 1 radio and have changed your CDI to VLOC. Maybe your attempting to complete a combo approach involving both an activated GPS approach which you will terminate and switch to the local ILS and GS on final only to find out the GTN 750 refuses to successfully make the transition even though you've entered and activated the correct ILS frequency and switched the CDI appropriately.

I managed to find a "work around" for the above.  It involves not only using the Carenado GTN 750 configuration tool but also the Flight1 GTN 750 configuration tool.  Make sure that even if your GTN 750 is embedded in the 690B's cockpit you can also bring it up as a 2D pop-up window.  Once you've entered the necessary ILS frequency and have switched the CDI from GPS to VLOC, cycle that 2D pop-up window.  That action apparently caused the GTN 750 to connect to the proper avionic instruments and my course needle deviated properly and my GS came alive.

Hope this helps

John

Bert!!  Looks (in videos that I've seen, that the hydraulic system have the same wrong behavior like in their Shrike Commander.)  the indicator always have pressure. Have the same system and the same behavior;

Bert, you're a genius! I'm glad you fly Carenado birds and are here to guide us along. You've fixed a few of their planes for us. :-)
