Hi,

Thank you Frank for the assistance with this.

Now the question I have is this:

1) You have opt-in a different folder than the default when installing the Trainer. The trainer registry entries show the new path:

"G:\AddOns\Acquisti\RealityXP\Garmin\" etc...

2) You've had to create the FPLN folder in the 'trainer data' subfolder, which you are saying is:

"G:\AddOns\Purchases\RealityXP\Garmin\Data\GTN\FPLN"

My question: is the 'Purchases' your translation for posting in the forum, or, is the trainer rejecting 'Acquisti' ?

 

Further on your other questions:

The User's Manual says (footnote on the page about the flight plans):

 The "FPLN" folder must reside in the folder equivalent to "GTNSIMDATA" (see Configuring Alternate Paths chapter for more information). NB: GTN Trainer before v6.41: "C:\ProgramData\Garmin\GTN Trainer Data\GTN\FPLN"

 

The 'alternate pahs' chapter then says:

Configuring Alternate Paths

The Garmin trainer installs various components, each one in a specific path. This chapter describes supported Windows environment variables to configure alternate trainer paths in a typical scenario.

Set the general trainer application path, that is where the trainer is installed:

GTNSIMPATH="C:\Program Files (x86)\Garmin\Trainers\GTN\bin"              (Trainer v6.41+)
GTNSIMPATH="C:\Program Files (x86)\Garmin\GTN Trainer\GTN\sys\sim"    (older Trainers)


Set the application database path, that is where to look for all the db files (terrain, obstacle, navigation etc..):

GTNSIMDATA="C:\ProgramData\Garmin\Trainers"                    (Trainer v6.41+)
GTNSIMDATA="C:\ProgramData\Garmin\GTN Trainer Data"            (older Trainers)

I can confirm after updating to SW 6.5.0 and GTN to 2.5.6 the import button does not work anymore. I was previously on 2.4.3 in which I created a YouTube tutorial video on how to make this work of course following the steps on page 9 of the manual as well as how to export a flight plan from skyvector into the GTN 750.

After updating to 2.5.6 my Import button has disappeared and the file path ProgramData\Garmin\Trainers\GTN\FPLN is no longer working. I've tried moving the FPLN to sever different folders with no luck. Has anyone found the problem since it was working just fine before the update?

SOLVED. 
After updating from 2.4.3 to 2.5.6 I too also lost my import button. C:\ProgramData\Garmin\Trainers\GTN\FPLN was no longer working even though that's what is indicated on page 9 of the manual. Well somewhere along the line someone changed or a change was made to the directory and the file path has now changed. No wonder you're all frustrated, the manual is incorrect. 

The correct file path should now be C:\ProgramData\Garmin\Trainers\Databases\FPLN and not in the GTN folder anymore. After 2 hours of painstakingly fiddling around with this and working with a buddy of mine he was able to figure out the NEW correct path. I hope this helps everyone out.

I'm glad you've got it working, although p9 give the correct path for trainer v6.50, and footnotes for previous trainers?!?!

Or maybe I was just looking at the already updated manuals on our systems?! Either ways, v2.5.7 update includes updated manuals for sure, so are the links to the manuals on our website. Thank you four your feedback.
