You mean it doesn't show when you click "Show window"?

Hi, or do you mean the popup window displays, but it won't start (aka black screen)?

The original 750 works fine from the plugins menu, the recent purchase 625,635,850 will allow me to select them but will not show on the screen. I get the option to show screen but nothing happens when I select it.

Apologies, yes I mean it doesn't show when I click show window, and no the popup window does not appear so I am not reporting a black screen. I had them with the 750 but that seems to be a lot better,

Have you tried 'Reset Window' ? This repositions the window to the top right corner. Should you have added a device popup window to an aircraft, but resize the X-Plane window afterward, it will be out of view. Otherwise, you can also cross-check enabling the GTN 6xx in the plugin menu is indeed launching the Garmin GTN trainer process in task manager (CTRL+SHIFT+ESC).

I just noticed this is happening to me too. Both with 750 and 650. Guess it is a problem with v2.4.10 because it was working before. Now if I add a GTN to a plane the window does not open.

The "Reset Window" is dark, can't be clicked. And the Garmin trainer process is there in task manager.

The window opens on the planes that have the GTN in the 3D panel though.

Could you check the RealityXP.GTN.ini in the aircraft folder and verify if there is a  [GTN_750_1.WINDOW] section (or GTN_650, depending on the device you've installed)?
If it's not there the ini file is incomplete, for some reason.

HI Bourrinopathe,

No, there's not. There's just a [GTN_750_1] section.

Aren't you having the same problem when trying to add the GTN to a new plane with 2.4.10?

Hi, just tested and indeed it fails to create the default [window] and [panels] sections.

Good catch! There will be a new RC today.

In the meantime, you can manually add the following defaults to the ini file:

NB: this is for the GTN 750 Unit1, replace the section headers with 'GTN_750_2' for Unit2, and with 650 instead of 750 accordingly.

Also, once loaded, you might want to select the GTN menu | Reset Window to reposition to the upper right corner of your display.

 

[GTN_750_1.WINDOW]
; display window if true.
visible = true 
; show screen only gauge if true.
nobezel = false
; display type: WINDOW,PANEL2D,PANEL3D,PANELS
frame.type = WINDOW
; display position and dimension (left,top,width,height)
frame.rect = 546,964,830,790
; screen only border size (pixels).
border.size = 0
; screen only border color (#RGB or #RGBA).
border.rgba = #000000
; enable mouse clickspots if true, disable if false (use SHIFT to override)
usemouse = true 
; left mouse button on the screen toggles popup window if true (requires SHIFT+left mouse button).
popleft = false
; right mouse button on the screen toggles popup window if true (requires XP11.1).
popright = false
; display mouse tooltips if true.
tooltips = false
; freeze display position if true.
locked = false

[GTN_750_1.PANELS]

What plane? Or did you try on more than one?
