No, please, let us know how goes the Reality XP GTN 750/650 Touch in the bush!

@softreset Cross Fill is not implemented yet, because we didn't want to further delay the release. With P3D4.1 and GTN 6.41 released near the same time, it was better to release it now. However, we're working on it. I can't promise it will be implemented in the end, because it requires hacking the trainer and might prove to be not reliable enough, but sure enough we won't rest on our laurels!

@RXP Appreciate that response. I might check it out anyway, looking for a dual 650 option for my Carenado PC-12 and I appreciate the Flight1 wrapper in case it doesn't work out. Am I correct that in reading that it uses the same year old AIRAC Garmin DB as the trainer add-ons?

The new GTN Trainer v6.41 which our GTN is compatible with, ships with the same DB as the previous trainer. However it has been reported the updated GTN Trainer 6.41 for iPad ships with a DB 1705, and it might be possible to transfer the files over.

A couple of screenshots showing the VISUAL approach feature of the GTN 6.41 software.

What about LInkGPS= ?

@fppilot it is now called "Link Simulator GPS Waypoints"

 

As a matter of fact, all the new features implemented in the Reality XP GNS V2 2.3.4 update, are also implemented in the Reality GTN 750/650 Touch for FltSim:

  • New: Support for Prepar3D v4.1
  • New: Link Simulator GPS Waypoints option synchronizes GNS route to FS GPS/EFIS.
  • New: Use Legacy Mouse Knobs option offers left+right+middle buttons control.
  • New: Adjust Brightness option to change per-instance bezel brightness in the cockpit.
  • New: Offset Brightness option to change per-instance screen brightness in the cockpit.
  • New: Panel Assistant 'scale' factor to change popup windows default size.

Here are some notes about the new features:

- new per-instance settings to adjust the brightness of the bezel, and to offset the brightness of the screen independently. Some VC are not natively designed for the GTN gauge, and these settings helps the gauge look and feel. "per-instance" means you can set these up for a gauge in the VC, set these up differently for another gauge in the VC, and again for any other popup window! It is quite flexible!

- 'scaling' option in the assistant when creating popup windows. Although it might not be useful as-is for the GNS V2, it is paramount when trying to stack 2x GTN 750 on a small monitor. Since we've been adding this option to the GTN, we've also added it to the GNS V2! The assistant let's you choose 1:1, ¾, ½ and ¼ scales.

How is the VC integration achieved and managed?

Hi, do you have something specific in mind?

Otherwise, the Reality XP GTN 750/650 Touch is a gauge, and like any other gauge, it can fit any panel.

I was thinking about aircraft which come with the option to integrate a GTN 750/650 or a combination, like some Carenado models or the Milviz Beaver. Gauge configuration can be tricky otherwise, at least with some VC's and for people with less experience than Bert P. Hope to see some users showing what they did with the gauge. 

Thanks for the new models.

Thank you for the clarification! Well, in fact the first step is easy and consist in replacing the old gauge with the Reality XP GTN 750/650 Touch. Using the in-sim task-oriented assistant, you can quickly replace old gauges with the new.

Then remains interactivity, especially in the VC.

Either the gauge is configured with its bezel (default), and you get all interactivity already set and working (this is default FS gauge put in the VC working fine).

Or the gauge is configured 'nobezel' manually, to replace/overlay a 3D model of the GTN screen, and then you need to use the wonderful trick Bert has explained in our GNS V2 forum: create a simple XML gauge which intercepts 3D model click events and turns them to default simulator GPS key events, which our GTN picks up with the "Use Simulator GPS Commands" option.

Help. I am not finding the command or context for this either in the Setup app or in the updated .ini file(s)

SHIFT+right click the top edge of the device to open the Settings Panel, then in the 'Gauge Options' section, open the 'Advanced settings', it is there!

OK got it.  The way the setup frame situates on my system, scrolling all the way to the bottom, with Advanced and Audio at the bottom, clicking Advanced then opens but appears to only show Enable Failures. Since already scrolled to the bottom before clicking Advanced it felt like it was already at the lower limit of the options.

Ok I think I got it, however, isn't the scroll bar changing size when you un-hide the 'Advanced' option? Otherwise this would be a bug in the GUI code which we will look at.

Looking at it again, yes the scroll bar does change size. I did not notice it. Likely because i had scrolled to the bottom.  Also looking at it again when Advanced is clicked the Audio heading moves from view which should have also caught my attention.

My bad on another front. After inquiring about LinkGPS= for the GTN, I mixed in GNS questions. Guess the settings and context is the same for both, but hope I did not confuse others.  Sorry about that.

Thank you for the clarification, I'm glad we won't have to issue an immediate patch and that our GTN seems rock solid from the get go, hoping it will stay like this for long!

As for the other topic, yes both the Reality XP GTN and the Reality XP GNS V2 implement the same level of FltSim capabilities and integration! That is the features you love and request such as "Link Simulator GPS Waypoints", "Use Simulator GPS Commands", Keyboard shortcuts, tons of custom XML variables for integration, adjustable bezel brightness independently of the screen brightness etc...

Speaking of 'cool' things, for those not reading the entire manual:

- In the GTN device: System | Audio : adjust the key click sound is working.

- In the GTN device: System | Backlight : adjust the screen brightness.

- In the GTN device: volume knob: adjust either the COM or NAV volumes.
