Reality XP GNS V2 for Prepar3d/FlightSim Released!

Recommended Posts

I'm pleased to announce the Reality XP GNS V2 for Flight Sim is now available!

We're proud to offer you the same level of quality for the entire Prepar3dFlight Simulator and X-Plane platforms!

The products come with unique graphics technologies: HDPI 32bits RGBA bitmaps for unmatched visuals*, highly optimized code for near zero impact to the FPS, and in-sim live settings: no aircraft or sim reload!

Both products also come super-charged with tons of customization options for panel integration, hardware interface and keyboard shortcuts. They also now offer custom variables to help integration with third party XML gauges with our GPS.

I also know we are at a simulation turning point, which I'll best illustrate with the following questions we all ask ourselves: do I keep my 32bits FSX investment, or do I take the plunge and go for P3D4 64bits now? Do I purchase my needed hardware update before changing simulators, or after? What about my add-ons?

We've decided to help you take the pro-simmer choice, in offering our Flight Simulator version compatible with the entire flight simulator family for a unique price:

P3D 4, P3D 3, P3D 2, P3D 1, FSX-SE, FSX, FS9*

Whenever you decide to migrate from an older sim (say FSX-SE) to the latest P3D4, your Reality XP product gets your back: you don't have to purchase the product because you are changing simulator!

A single license has got you covered from FS9 to P3D4:

- Want to migrate to P3D4 later and keep flying P3D3 a little bit longer? No problem!

- Flying half on P3D3 for this great scenery, and half on P3D4 for VAS-free worryNo problem either!

And one last thing:

To further thank you for your continuing support for the last 15 years, we're offering additional 10% discount to all Reality XP customers until September 30th, 2017!*

 

Fly Yours Today!

 

As a picture is worth a thousand words, here it is, in P3D V4 64bits:

Stay tuned for GTN Touch coming up soon!

* FS-SDK limits: 15bits colours aka 'colour banding' / FSX (Acc/Sp2) and FS9 (Sp1)

* Coupon available at reality-xp.com front page.

Great news!  Is there any discount for owners of the v.1 430/530 products? 

Also, it's too bad you can't get both the P3D4 and Xplane versions together.  Not sure if you've thought about that.  I know some folks that fly both and I doubt you'd find a lot of people buying both.  Maybe a few.

So I have downloaded (via Flight1) and started the install, how long should it take?...... Seems to be chewing processor time, but its been 20+ minutes trying to install into the FSX-SE and P3D v.3 directories.

Should I try to cancel and restart? I used the default locations recommended by the installer, which located my installations on each of the separate SSD's that I have. I status bar on the installer does not show any signs of progress?

After this is installed I am going to get the 530, so quite anxious to get one working - again... Thanks

I thought I had solved the issue. I am using Windows 10 (64bit), I uninstalled the previous versions of RealityXP products and uninstalled the Garmin trainer 400W from previous installs. Then reinstalled into a different initial directory (c:/realityxp2). The install completed and then went into FSX-SE, started it up, acknowledged first time use of the .dll's and started my Carenado C182, In the addons was the Realty GNS, but when I started the setup from the fsx addons menu, I received a spinning disk and FSX locked up.

I went to try the GNS standalone to see if it was working, it did not show in the start menu, although the .pdf documents for the 400/500 were there. I went to the directory where it was installed and it started in the 530W model, but you could not turn on the power to the GNS trainer.

I uninstalled and attempted reinstalling a couple of different ways and now have used up my reactivation's on Flight1 and ran out of ideas/variation, so calling it a night.

Please note: 

1) GNS V2 comes with a new trainer with software v3.3 and you shouldn't skip installing the new trainer that comes with it, otherwise it won't run

2) The new trainer won't run standalone, only with our solution. This is normal.

3) Troubleshooting options: as indicated in the User's Manual, the solution manages a couple useful log file in "my documents" folder. They might contain valuable information you can review to better understand what is preventing the solution to work.

Besides, I'm not sure to understand: what did you point to "C:\realityxp2" during installation? The trainer?

What I meant was that the default install folder for the setup files is c:\realityxp and i used c:\realityxp2, which at that point seemed to help.

Note: Sorry, I will in the Install Hung up .....  thread in the future, as requested

Just to clarify, when you say "all", are you also referring to those who will buy a Reality XP product for the first time or only those who were already costumers before?
Thanks,

Well this is good and bad. Good that it's finally been updated, bad that I missed the discount date thanks to Hurricane Irma and no Internet.

Looks like I'm sticking with the GTN twins....

Looks good though

Actually it is more 49.95$ for either the GNS 530W V2 or the GNS 430W V2. You can spread your expenses over two months as well, which let you enjoy the unique Reality XP GNS V2 now.

It is the only GNS simulation product available with Trainer 3.3, task-oriented panel.cfg assistant, TCAD, Crossfill etc...

We've got a number of similar requests, and although we wanted to extend the coupon, we've missed to reflect the changes on our webpage in time.

Du to popular demand, the coupon is now extended until Sep 30th 2017!

Not to be a crybaby but I went back through my purchase history at Flight one and I saw that I paid for a rxp 530 at least twice and I also purchased the 430.  I can't see the justification for having to pay another $100 for the same units again, 10% discount or not.  Something just feels wrong here.  I owned every rxp product for FS9 and FSX.

You have paid for fs9, for fsx and for P3D now, there are different versions of the same product, like the rxp gns and you have paid each time.

So why not doing the same with the gns ?

Hi Loup,

Let me the opportunity to change your mind about the GNS V2!

GNS V2 not only includes capabilities once available only with the 'Professional Expansion Pack', it also offers new unique features at no additional cost.

Let me highlight some of its amazing and distinctive features:

The Reality XP GNS 530W/430W V2 fundamentally look and feel like the authentic device, which provides accurate symbology depiction, authentic and timely operating behaviour and helps develop correct muscle memory.

The Reality XP GNS 530W/430W V2 is a faithful reproduction that pilots and flight simulator users can use it as a training tool to familiarize themselves with the workings of the actual equipment. Like its real world counterpart, the RXP GNS 530W/430W has built-in WAAS navigation capabilities, and is capable to fly LPV “glideslope” approaches without reference to ground-based navaids of any kind.

The provision of the integrated communication and navigation radios in the unit gives the extra capabilities of auto tuning and pre-fetching your navigation and approaches frequencies. And for panels already equipped with radios equipment, the GNS 530W V2 now includes the GPS 500 gauge, a radio-less version.

The Reality XP GNS 530W/430W V2 includes enhanced situational awareness capabilities and comes standard equipped with TAWS-B and TCAD. Providing visual and aural advisories to help keep pilots safely separated from hazardous terrain, the WAAS GPS position information is compared with the GNS 530W/430W units’ internal terrain/obstacles databases to determine conflict scenarios. If there is inadequate terrain and/or obstacle clearance ahead, based on the system’s projected flight path, TAWS caution and warning alerts are issued to you. Accompanying FLTA voice alerts also indicate the relative threat level.

In addition to terrain and obstacle alerting, the TAWS system also features voice callouts, or VCOs, which audibly announce the aircraft’s height above terrain when descending below 500 feet. VCO altitude callout operate in all TAWS modes,

The Reality XP GNS 530W/430W V2 includes the unique Crossfill feature which allows you to transfer a direct-to destination, the active flight plan including VNAV parameters, any stored flight plan or user waypoints to a second 400W or 500W device. If both units are set to automatic, a change in the active flight plan, or VNAV parameters, on one unit can also be seen in the other. Initiating a direct-to course to a waypoint on one unit also initiates a direct-to course to the same waypoint on the other unit.

With the simulation of both GPS failure and WAAS failure, users can practice degraded approaches scenario.

With the in-device capability to import and export flight plans to file, and to import user waypoints from file, it makes preparing and managing your device flight plans an easy task.

The Reality XP GNS 530W/430W V2 comes with a newer Garmin Trainer with software v3.3. It not only corrects software bugs and defects, but it also adds new features, among which the capability to use some of the  GTN database files (see below).

Last but not least, it is compatible with Prepar3d v4, v3, v2, v1, FSX-SE, FSX-ACC/SP2, FS9-SP1 with a single purchase, and with Windows XP to Windows 10: you can be confident your Reality XP GNS 530W/430W V2 will be by your side whenever you feel it is time to upgrade your simulator or your operating system!

GNS 530W/430W XP is navigator's heaven! In short, there is simply no better GNS WAAS in any flight simulator, period.

Thank you Jean Luc for clarifying and rectifying this issue as it seemed out of the norm from my experience with rxp in the past.  I have purchased literally every one of your products from the Apollo gps and forward and am looking forward to the 750 next.

Have a great day,

LouP

And if it's too much money, do like me, i bought the 530 this month and 430 will be for the next month, 1 licence is offering 2 unit, so i can wait my 430 with my two 530 on board :). (i prefer to have 530 +430 because together, they fill my second touchscreen monitor perfectly)

Hi, for those of you who wonder if the gns V2 also works on a somewhat older system, on mine it works fine! I run my sim on a dualcore intel processor 3.0 Ghz, 2 GB Nvidia GPU. 

 

Cheers

Sven
