Recommended Posts

HelloI was wondering if there might be a snap-on FMC available for non FMC panels as I really want to fly SID/STArs imported from FSbuild2.I ma having nightmares with the GPS and even importing from FSbuild2 into FS2004, the GPS doen't seem to like SID/Stars at all.So hence the question.Thanks,Gian

Have you tried the Reality XP Garmin 530? Not an fmc, but fully SID/STAR capable. Does not take fsbuild though . . .

The big problem with the Garmins that are external to FS2004 is that their database is old and cannot be altered. If you know differently, please let me know I am wrong in that.Randy Jura, KPDX

Randy,Garmin updated the Jeppersen database to 9/2005 which is compatible with the Reality-XP trainer software. Although it's not the latest, it is preferable to the original from 2002. Here's a post from Reality-XP outlining the procedure for an in-place upgrade:http://www.simforums.com/forums/forum_post...?TID=13589&PN=1 Jim Karnhttp://www.precisionmanuals.com/images/forum/pmdg_pf.jpg

FSBuild can export to FS2004 though. Would I be able to use this*pln file then to import into the Garmin?Thanks,Gian

If you are flying turboprops and other complex panel types without a navigation display but want one similar to your PMDG (I have the 737NG) navigation display consider Reality-XP's two Jetline products. They will take the FS9 .pln files that FSB exports. I have the JL 2 and JL3.I also like the Apollo 50 for small aircraft. That does have its own db as I recall but I have had no problems reading waypoints. Only the info retrieval might vary. It also can link (optional) with the JL series for track display.www.reality-xp.com

And to clarify the Apollo 50 is a totally different product. It has a menu that will pull in FS9 flight plans from your specified folder.
