Garmin 530 in x plane 11

Recommended Posts

Currently flying the Baron 58 in x plane 11 and exporting the flightplan from pilot2atc. The plan can be loaded into the 530 and all appears good, however the 530 does not request a change to vloc from gps and flies straight over the runway. Am I supposed to also load the same approach and activate the approach directly within the 530? also do I need nav1 activated or do I just press nav button on the 530. Apologies for the dumbness but I cant quite figure it out.

When transitioning to an ILS or other "beacon" based approach, you must manually change the Nav source from GPS to Nav1. 

You can do this once you are on the intercept to the Final Approach.

Is this just a matter on switching on NAV1 and changing the frequency to match the ILS one at the airport?

Yes, plus in the Baron, changing the Nav Source Switch (Top left side of instrument panel) from GPS to NAV1.
