Flight 1 GTN 750

Recommended Posts

HI

Whilst not strictly a matter for PMDG , I was wondering which of the PMDG aircraft ( Prepar3dv4)  might be compatible with the Flight 1 GTN 750.

I am having a lot of problems ( read impossible ) programming the DC6 Cloudmaster  ( GNS 430 ) as the right hand cursor button will not respond to any mouse commands.

Regards to all

Well I'm not really sure. But I would say the DC-6 might be the only one really having a use of this kind of addons. But I'd say if you have issue with it on the right hand cursor you should probably check in with PMDG support :)

All other currently available aircrafts are coming with all that is needed and so don't have any need for such an addon.

I asked a long time ago during the DC-6 announcement to let us put in a custom gps unit but that never happened - David Lee

Right now, only the DC-6.

The Jetstream screen shots showed a GPS, I think. So maybe that one.

...where would you even have enough real estate to put the 750 in there...?

"a custom gps unit" is not just a GTN 750... - David Lee

In a thread titled in reference to the 750, you can forgive me for the assumption...

I just wanted to use the GTN 750 for taxiway purposes. I have 2D panel up it just won’t power in the NGX OR 777.

I haven't seen anybody mention they asked for help from Flight1, the developer of the GTN650/750.  Seems to me they would be experts in how to use their product in most popular aircraft.

The simple solution is to open a new view with the '[' key and set it to top down.  I've been doing this for years..., and it has the added advantage to a map that you can actually see what you are taxiing over.

Are you able to comment on the REX WX Advantage Radar and if it'll work with the new JS41, or is PMDG going to make their own working version?

No offense Kyle, but that doesn't really answer my question. I wasn't asking about Skyforce. I just want to know if PMDG will have their own weather radar that'll work with Active Sky, or if you'll make the instrument panel compatible with the REX weather radar the way you are with the GTN 750.

Might want to go back to your earlier post, then...

The earlier post refers to REX, which, if you read the post I linked to, you can clearly see the level of interaction, and the likelihood of any integration.

When it comes to information here, we don't always answer every question. We don't have to answer any question, honestly. I'm here to moderate and keep things in order, not to answer every question. If I answer one, it's best to look at what was provided, and if everything wasn't addressed, assume there is a reason that it wasn't addressed.

Read the link for the REX question. The rest, I will not address. Not the project I'm working on, and I'm not the one who releases info about unreleased projects - that's RSR.

Didn't realize you needed to "interact" with REX just to make their radar integrate into the JS41 instrument panel. Someone had asked about the GTNs and Chris replied, which is why I quoted him when I asked if there would be a weather radar in this version and what radar that would be. Your link refers to the integration of all PMDG products and SkyForce - which I could care less about. If there's no radar in this version of the JS41 or you can't comment on it, then that's all you had to say.

Well, Kyle, if you can give me RSR’s sawzall, (that he used on the BCF model of the 744V3)...

I could make some room... :ph34r:

Are you saying you will be using a PMDG rendition of the GTN 750? and if so, will it be as good as the "other" one we see mentioned?

No PMDG rendition.  the F1 GTN750 will be used.

Hi Chris, Umm, a great GTN 750...many users will be very happy. So, does this mean it will be hard wired in so to speak and not like the F1 GTN 750 which is very portable between a/c?

Geof, What do you mean hardwired? If you have the F1 GTN you will be able to use it on the JS41. If someone does not have it then he will be using another GPS unit based on the default GPS.

Hi Chris, OK, I understand now. The JS41 will have default GPS as standard, but have the option of fitting the F1 GTN, IF the owner has purchased one.

Correct

Thanks Chis,

It seems that more and more a/c are providing the option of this nice bit of kit...Maybe time to bite the bullet and get it and then can fit it into what ever...Its cost is like buying another a/c....
