Hi, I'm not sure to understand it all, but you can opt to install the GPS 500. It is like the GNS 530, with no NAV and no COM!

No :biggrin:

I want "duplicate" COM1 from GNS 430 to COM1 of the radiopanel.

I should like to use the radiopanel's buttom to choise the frequency of com1...

Ok, got it! The good news: there is nothing special to do.

Both the GNS V2 and the radio panel frequencies keep synchronized: you change the radios, it updates the GNS V2, you change the GNS V2, it updates the radios!

well, on my system I have the A2a cherokee and the gns 430.

The gns 430 is on com1, but my radiopanel only shows com2 and nav2. The leds of com 1 and nav 1 are off...

WHat can I do ?

It depends what you want in the end:

1) You may configure the GNS V2 Unit1 to use COM2/NAV2

2) You may enable COM1/NAV1 radios in your aircraft.cfg file if they are disabled.

Typically in your aircraft.cfg file:

[Radios]
// Radio Type = availiable, standby frequency, has glide slope
Audio.1       = 1
Com.1         = 1, 1
Com.2         = 1, 1
Nav.1         = 1, 1, 1
Nav.2         = 1, 1, 0
Adf.1         = 1
Transponder.1 = 1
Marker.1      = 1

 

disabling com2 standby:

Com.2 = 1,0

Enabling G/S on NAV2:

Nav.2 = 1,1,1

etc...

hello !

I can have com 2 with the gps and the radiopanel and change frequency with the radio panel on the gps. Smart !

But still impossible to have com 1 on the radio panel...

Is the radio panel offering both COM1/NAV1 and COM2/NAV2?

You GNS V2 now syncs with COM2/NAV2 and your COM2/NAV2 radios isn't it?

All is right with for instance the  beech baron without the GNS 430, COM1/NAV1 and COM2/NAV2 sync betweeen the radiopanel and the plane's GPS.

And yes, now, my GNS V2 syncs with COM2/NAV2 and COM2NAV2 radios...

ok.

I fly withe the cherokee A2A.

I want to have com1 on the gns 430 and the radiopanel

Now, I have com2 on the gns 430 and the radiopanel, but if I swicth com1 on the Gns 430, I can't have the com1 on the radiopanel. The leds are off.

 

If I choose another default plane for instance the beech Garmin1000., without GNS 430 but with the default GPS , I can swich com1 and com2 both on the gps and the radiopanel.

Sorry for my bad english ans thanks so much for trying to understand me :smile:

Hi, I'm not sure to really understand the nature of the problem at all. What do you mean with "I can switch com1 and com2 on the GPS and the radio panel"?

Well I can have com 1 on the radiopanel and on the GPS in a default plane with a default GPS, but not in the cherokee a2a with the gns 430. Here I can have com1 on the GNS 430, but not in the radiopanel. But I can have COm2 on the Gns430, and on the radiopanel

Ok, but then what does it mean "no in the radio panel", do you mean the upper radio panel is blank (nothing displays) when adding our GNS V2 set as COM1, or do you mean it disappears from the panel (the radio gauge is missing)?

I mean in the saitek radiopanel, all is OK in the virtualcocpit. Only com1 don't appear in the saitek radiopanel : all the leds are off, if I put the buttom of the radiopanel on com1

Ok now I get it! You don't mean the A2A aircraft virtual cockpit, but the external 3rd party device.

Then I'm not sure what could be the problem. Our GNS V2 merely reads the sim variables to get the frequencies, or writes them when they change in the GNS V2. This is the only 'set' action taking place, all the rest is 'get'.

Either there is something in the Saitek driver (there must be some form of driver in-sim or via SimConnect) which is not found of having our GNS V2 running at the same time, or they are 'hacking' the internals of FltSim somehow and  this fails when our gauge is loaded, or anything else in between.

Can you please describe how this hardware communicates with FltSim? Is there a Windows Driver? Is there a SimConnect module? Does this rely on FSUIPC only?

I don't think the problem is with the driver because all is ok with other planes and default gps. I think there is a little   mess in my aircraft.cfg. I will try the gns430 in another plane and  I will let you know
