GTN 750 for v4.1?

Recommended Posts

Is there an update yet for the Flight1 GTN 750? I have tried the version for V4 and it does not work in V4.1.

204 was announced yesterday. I installed it last night, and its running very nicely. As alluded to above, it may still be labelled at v203 on the website.

You do NOT need to run the F1 updater, that won't work in this case.

The only issue - and its a big one if you're flying vr - is that the 'direct to' button (the one with the arrow) on the right of the unit doesn't work in VR - so you have to remove goggles any time you need to reprogram a destination.

Is there a way to do this in the gtn without using that button (going to a 'nearest' airoport)?

Is there any way to bind a key press to that button?

Apart from that, now that LM has given us a decent VR cursor, using the GTN with the Oculus is a splendid experience.

Mine is not working after updating to 2.04 under V4.1 very sluggish.

I reported it to F1 already.

If you need to re-install the software, does it preserve your custom waypoints or is there a way to back them up and restore them to the new version.

I've reset the AM in Task manager to all and it seems to be working ok. I had it set to last two cores in the config tool,

I tried the core settings but didn't work, what is the AM?

Affinity Mask... open Task Manager click on 'Processes' right click on 'GTN Simulator' and click 'set affinity' click 'all Processors'

It does appear it's not picking up the cores in the config tool.

this is only a temporary solution as this needs to be done every time you boot up P3d.  but at the moment its now working.

Many thanks

Yes, just checked it again, setting 'All Cores ' in the F1GTN Config tool and checking the AM in Task Manager which shows it set to core '0' so it doent appear to be picking up the AM in the config tool.

I am away from my beloved Simulator PC, but your explanation makes total sense.

Thanks for reporting this.

try altering this line in the F1GTN config file in your  Airplane section (Sim Objects) ....    CPU Core=0   this will use the last core   .  this works ok

Many thanks,

That is fine for a temporally solution, I was happy when they were using all cores, so they better fix this!

Pine, your waypoints will be fine. I use quite a few, and they're all still there (from memory, they're stored in a folder in the Garmin trainer, and that shouldn't be getting uninstalled).

As long as you do not re-install the Garmin Trainer!  :blush:

Yes, Bert, that's what I said, maybe should have capitalised:

"and that SHOULD NOT be getting uninstalled!!!!!!!!!"

:)

If anyone wants to back their waypoints up, they're saved by default in:

C:\ProgramData\Garmin\GTN Trainer Data\GTN

Look for these files:

GTN2nonvol (contains the GTN 750 waypoints and flightplans)
GTN4nonvol (contains the same data for the GTN 650)

Whilst you shouldn't be planning on touching the trainer itself, there's no harm in backing these up if - like me - you've got lots of user waypoints (I mainly use them for small fields that aren't in the Garmin database)

Cheers!

Thanks for the advice and good news. Looks like it is save to upgrade to 4.1 now. The showstopper are now out of the way.
