A New Take On the CJ2 GTN 750 Integration

Recommended Posts

Just have to say I ended up installing this mod with the gtn 750 and it is really awesome. Does anyone know is there is a way to pop out the gtn from the virtual cockpit? when I click it just the default gauge pops out.

UPDATE 8/30/18 

Hey all, just wanted to give you an update on where I'm at with this project.  Honestly,  between school, my baby girl and this project I am honestly swamped LOL.  So updates won't be coming nearly as fast as they did during the summer.  Honestly, I only work on this when I have time to sit down and just getaway from the crazy life LOL.....  So anyways I'm currently working on creating a pop up of the GTN MFD.  Unfortunately, I've run into a hangup.  Unlike the VC gauges, the 2d gauges have the bezel of the gauge included.  So I can't just resize my modded gauge to fit and get them to appear as if they are "in" the gauge like the VC.  So what that means is you guys may just get a 2d popup of just the screen portion of the MFD.....HOW DOES THAT MAKE YOU ALL FEEL?

 

I've also started to look into some of the annunciations that our pilot friend has told me we should have during various actions in the aircraft.  That's going to be a longer process for sure as Carenado did not even provide the code to turn all of the lights on other then the self test...(sigh).  So please be patient with me this mod has definitely blown up into something I never expected it too.  Honestly guys, I bought Orbx Telluride and I haven't even had a chance to fly my bird into it yet.  I only took the video there for background LOL!!!  So not much to report other than....its SLOOOOooooOOOOOwly coming along.  I'll keep you updated!  Happy Flying.

Would you please advise if these awesome mods will work with P3D V4.

There are a few users with V4 using it.  So far no one has called my attention to any major issues.

Screen portion sounds good to me no need for bezel in my opinion

Hello Jevon.  I received your mods the other day and they have been installed into P3D V4.3.  I've had two flights so far, and also a flight without using the mods.  There's no difference.  Your mods work perfectly in P3D V4.  Thank you for your time and effort and willingness to share. 

Regards

When I first read this I thought you were saying there was no difference between the mod and the regular CJ2 😁.  For me it's just an honor that so many such as yourself were even interested in it!

When you say "screen portion of the GTN", does that include the engine gauges as well, or just the original GTN display? If it doesn't have the engine gauges, it defeats the purpose of the pop-up, as it would be nothing more than the stock F1 2D gauge.

It will include everything as it appears on the modified MFD screen.

Great! I'm only interested in the 2D gauge. I gather this is still a work in progress, so I'll monitor this thread to see when it becomes available.

Sorry about that.  My PM was full with all the other requests.  I had to delete some older (pre mod) emails.  I'm at 86 percent full now.   Please try again....
