unable to import flight plan

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

I can not import the flight plans as shown in the manual so I do not know where I messed up at.  The flight plan page only has 2 selectable pages not 3 pages where the import flight plan is

This is the location of the flight plans: C:\ProgramData\Garmin\GNS Trainer Data\GNS\FPL
You must create the FPL folder.
Place your .fpl files in there.

I did that 

During installation did you create your own custom path for either the RXP or for the Garmin Trainer?

Actually the RXP is in C:\Program Files (x86)\Reality XP\GNS Simulation\FltSim that is where all the RXP files went to

this shouldn't be a problem. However, you are still not telling where is your GNS trainer installed!

The GNS trainer is installed into C:\Program Files (x86)\Garmin\GNS Trainer

Like Bill511 stated above, Garmin .fpl flight plans for import into the GNS are located in the following folder:

C:\ProgramData\Garmin\GNS Trainer Data\GNS\FPL

Note that it is C:\ProgramData.....   not C:\ProgramFiles(86).......

You must create the FPL folder at that location.  I do not believe it is automatically created during install.

It is not automatically created indeed, and must be manually created, or like indicated in the RXP GNS User's Manual, you can create a 'shortcut' to any other folder instead.

I do use the shortcut method but it requires an extra step to establish and he is having difficulty just getting the folder to work.

That's exactly what is happening I can't get the folder to work and the extra step to make the short cut is easy to do but I'm not good with that stuff

This feature does work and work well as long as the files are valid .fpl files and they are in the right place that has the right name.  So lets break it down.  Couple of additional questions:

This is about GNS not GTN gauges, right? Reality XP GNS 430/530 type gauges, Reality XP not F1, correct?  They are separate products from different companies. Both are installed with F1 install wrappers.  But RXP is RXP, F1 is F1.

Where/how are you creating the .fpl files you intend to or are attempting to import?  Is that source putting the .fpl  files there for you? Or are you moving them there manually?

We are talking about Garmin flight plans in Garmin format. So its .fpl files, not simulator .pln files, right?

The folder at the end of the path we have each referenced is named FPL, right, not FLPN?

Not sure what your request is about.  Purchase?  It is not an aircraft I have acquired. Hopefully someone else will chime in. 

For fast high twins I fly the RealAir Turbine Duke v2 (no longer available), the Carenado Beech King Air 90, the Alabeo (Carenado) Cessna C421, the MilViz Beech Baron B55, Milviz C310 Redux (their second version), and the Carenado F406 Cessna Caravan II.  Rather than express any preference let me say that I fly a lot of different fantasy scenarios and each of those fit in somewhere in their own place into those equations.  For example the Alabeo C421 and Milviz C310 Redux both have tremendous range (distance without refueling) if fuel consumption is managed accordingly, so I use them in those situations when distance without stopping is more important than speed.  If speed is the essence then the Turbine Duke v2 is my choice.  If I need a blend of range and passenger/baggage payload capacity  then the F406 and C421 come into play.  The Baron B55 is fantastic for quick medium length flights at efficient altitudes. Plus it is the type I gained my multi and IFR ratings in some 45 years or so ago.

Hope that response is not too complicated.....
