Thank you for your feedback which helps us better our products!

Hey Jean-Luc,

Unfortunately this is still not working for me in the C172.

I confirmed that the selections are all checked in the settings menu.  In addition, here is my RealityXP.GNS.ini to make sure I have everything set correctly for the 530W:

Hi, in your settings it shows:

[GNS_530_1]
; connects GPS to HSI if true.
LinkHsi = true

It connects the OBS source to the HSI if LinkHsi = true, otherwise it connects the OBS sources to VOR1/2 if LinkVor = true.

Just set LinkHsi to false and this will work!

NB: I've just replaced 'or' with 'otherwise' in my previous post.

You are correct! Works PERFECTLY!

I can't thank you enough for fixing this issue. Your product has been invaluable with my IRL IFR training.

Thanks again,

Paul

my system is a PFC C2, PFC 430 control head using XP 9.  I updated reality XP 530w/430 w v2.  Using AC with HSI and without (only VOR) the OBS only works when I press OBS on the controller and a set OBS box opens for me to dial in a "radial" course which does appear over the fix.  However when I dial the HSI or VOR depending on AC used this function does not turn the course line on the GNS 530 screen.  I have all settings on Reality XP highlighted.  Not sure what to do. Please offer a suggestion.

 

thanks

Hi,

Just to make sure, you setup the device with the following settings (at least):

  1. You are using the latest RXP GNS v2.4
  2. With HSI only aircraft, you select both "Connect GPS to HSI" and "Connect HSI/OBS input".
  3. With VOR only aircraft, you select both "Connect GPS to VOR indicator" and "Connect VOR#/OBS input" (you see the option label changes from 'HSI' because "Connect GPS to HSI" is not selected.

In both cases above, the OBS button prompts with a manual input instead of the instrument OBS knob (HSI knob for 1. and VOR knob for 2.) ?

I have both the original GNS 530W/430W from a few years ago.  same issue as new version. I purchased  v2 this past week.and loaded.

Regarding the software settings I have set "all" blue buttons to on for all aircraft I'm using including of HSI or VOR only A/C .  Not sure if that's causing a conflict or not.  If so, please provide a blue print to follow.

 

thanks.

In addition:

what about comparing this in the default C172 (no HSI) and the default King Air 350 (has HSI).

OK, set both HSI AC and VOR only AC as per the settings provided. while the HSI AC OBS worked fine, however not in VOR AC. ( I did use different settings as requested) Also, both HSI and VOR did not read GPS inputs. I used other settings without success.

 

Please help.

 

thanks
