G1000 question

Recommended Posts

I would like to know if the new G1000 that is included in X-Plane 11 is capable to access flight plans that are in the FMS PLANS directory, and I mean more than just 99 of them like the Carenado's can ?

I am sorry, but I only see that you have on the screen from 1 to 12, does this mean that it is also limited, at least for the moment

I guess you have 228 slots to save plans, at least this is what I read in the USED 129 EMPTY 99 line, but nowadays a MicroSD to expand memory costs really few bucks :happy:

But when you have more than 800 (and growing) flight plans in the FMS PLANS directory, SD Card does not help to show them all

Nope, Ryan. It can load fms plans. I do create them with Onlineflightplaner and copy them into the output/FMS Plans folder. Maybe it is possible to save flightplans.. i don´t know.

Yes, it's possible to save them too  :)   Or at least it is in the XP11 530, and I believe the G1000 is using the same basic functionality for FP loading and saving.

PS.  I use Simbrief to plan my FPs and create the file for XP's FMS folder.   Works great.
