One observation. When loading flighplans that contain co-ordinated the GNS gives an "locked" message for those waypoints.

This is normal anytime you use user waypoints. I think this particular message is explained in the Garmin GNS Pilot's Guide.

You can also use this online real world flight planning site. You do need to register and also build a profile for yourself and for one aircraft. I used a dummy tail number and it worked fine. Once you have a flight plan completed there are export options and one is for an FPL plan export. I tried it and it works fine with the GNS trainer and thus with the new RXP GNS v2.  Just download the exported file into the appropriate ......./Garmin Trainer Data/GNS/FPL folder on your system.

I only use one aircraft at that online site as I am building plans to import into RXP and thus focused on routes and waypoints and not concerned about matching aircraft performance

In the next day or so I will be posting here in the RXP  v2 GNS area about how I have used two different real world flight planning sites that each provide a means to save/download flight plans you create  to Garmin spec .fpl files.  I was fortunate that I had a number of flight plans saved on one of those sites and I have been able to download them with the Garmin .fpl spec and successfully import them into the RXP v2 GNS GPS's.  Works slick.  Stay tuned!  I will likely start a new topic here so that it has a heading that best describes the content.

Cheers!
