RXP

Have you seen the RXP GTN in the cockpit?

Recommended Posts

Hi, I was preparing RC2 updates and making some test flights with the latest XP11.1 RC1, when I realized:

The GTN updates live from the external view!

No impact on the FPS! XP11 is really a slick piece of software!

Which XP11 plane is that? Just bought the XP GTN, so I have not had the time to use it yet.

This is the default Baron 58 with the GTN displaying over the default GNS screen!

Thanks, I am assuming that it's a user mod, where do I find that info?

It is just a simple manual edit of the RealityXP.GTN.ini for dev purposes ;-) nothing more.

Create a RealityXP.GTN.ini in "X-Plane 11/Aircraft/Laminar Research/Baron B58/" (or edit the existing if any) with this content:

[GTN]

How does one determine these values from the aircraft folder ?

Same question here.  I read through the user manual and it does not have any info on how one would go about doing this?

Thanks

Hi, it is not documented in the GTN manual, but in the GNS V2 manual only for now.

You can download the XPlane manual from our website (down the GNS V2 page), and look at the last chapters and the Baron 58 tutorial!
