I have a noob question which I can't seem to find, can the RXP GNS530 talk to the G1000 for example. Let's say I have an G1000 aircraft and have the GNS530 v2 installed and make a flight plan or import a flight plan into the GNS530 will that same flight plan show up on the G1000 ?

I believe what you are asking for is for the GTN flight path to be displayed on the default G1000? If so, in settings Link Simulator GPS way-points, I believe... and or Use simulator GPS commands. I think. Not there at the moment.

Hi,

Whether using the Reality XP GNS V2 X-Plane or FltSim versions, both offer 2 useful options:

Link Simulator GPS Waypoints

Best used to display the route on EFIS screens, this updates the simulator default GPS/FMS route with the actually waypoints you are flying to. Given respective simulator SDK, these consists in a series of straight line segments between waypoints.

NB: both FltSim and X-Plane limit third party add-ons/plugins to also update the waypoint ident, but we are doing our best to overcome this limitation whenever possible.

Auto-Save Active Route

This is intended for ATC control, which requires (both sims) to load a flight plan. (there is no SDK function in both simulators to do this live, it has to be a saved flight plan file). With this option, whenever the active route changes, our add-on/plugin saves it to disk in the native simulator format (.pln / .fms).

Hi, not being too familiar with the product but are these prices on the link in the OP already reflect the 30% discount?

thanks

Hi,

it was supposed to be obvious with 2 indicators:

1) the web page shows a strike through price in small fonts, and another price in big fonts like this:

$49.95  $35.00

Question: which of the 2 prices above reflects a discount?

2) maths shows: 49.95 * 30% = $35.00

Question: is 35 the discounted price of 49.95?

when it says "2 devices per panel" does that mean you can get 1x530 and 1x430  or 2x530 only ?

It’s odd, I don’t see a strike through with the link provided in the OP. Only a price of 49.99.

It's odd indeed, especially since the web pages have been changed nearly 1 week ago at least. I'd guess you browser cache needs cleaning? Try force-reloading the page in the browser?

There are 2 products, each one in its own white box on a blue background. Each white box says '2 devices per panel' which indicate the product mentioned in its white box includes 2 devices. Therefore, it is 2x5XX devices when you purchase the GNS 530 V2, and 2x4XX devices when you purchase the GNS 430 V2. Why XXX? Because the products include respectively the GNS 530 and the GPS 500, and, the GNS 430, the GNC 420 and the GPS 400!

I'm ready to buy one. But I"m wondering which is the better choice:

Reality-XP's GTN 750/650 for $70 (after discount)

or

Flight1's Complete GTN 750/650 for $64.95 (no discount)

Does Flight1's offer ever go on sale?

Also, assuming both have the same price, which is the better buy generally in terms of features and ease of installation (or specifically to Just Flight's Arrow iii, A2A planes, and Realairs's Lancair v2)?

Thanks.

P.S. Also, which one has the least intrusive DRM scheme (I hate it when they limit the number of installs when you are installing it one at a time only. I had this problem with DCS's DRM. I didn't realize using a VPN effectively ate up my 10 lifetime installations).

Here's a few thing you might want to consider.

I never use them integrated into the aircraft, so if (like me) you are planning to use it undocked and move them to a second monitor then the XP probably is the better choice for $35 since if I'm correct you get 2xpanels so 2 x 750

The other thing is that I'm not sure anymore if the garmin trainer is built into the Flight1 or the XP versions or if you still have to manually install the garmin trainer. On the original F1 GTN page they say that it comes with the Trainer v6.21 Databases cycle 1607 while XP says v6.50 with Databases cycle 1803 which is good. I don't see F1's new page what Trainer version or Database cycle is included. But from what I understand they both use the same data however I'd wish that F1 wold mention it on their page.

Personally If you are flying P3D I would take a wait and see for who is going to support v4.4 and by the looks of it it's going to be XP.

 

Edit: I stand corrected by the looks of it according to their forum the F1 GTN now works in v4.4 with the 1803 cycle.

@oneleg @FPStewy I'm afraid you're confusing trainer versions, database cycles, and overall product capabilities.

Products have a so a little price difference for so much features, functions, integration, support, capabilities, performance and more differences, I'd strongly suggest you don't compare products by price alone, but rather take the time to get educated and sound information about what it is that differentiate our products.

Please start reading our forums here on Avsim. These are open for everyone to read and write, we have nothing to hide because we stand behind our products and we thrive to excel, and this shows.

The first question everyone should ask is: why 2 products which seems similar have a price difference to get started. There is a reason for everything and I wouldn't you feeling uncomfortable missing our sales later...

You are right that the price difference as noted above shouldn't be significant at all.

I'd love to get educated on these products first but the problem is I don't have much time to do it now and there are pricing/sales deadlines.

Two very specific questions then:

1. Will I be able to integrate RXP into Justflight's Arrow III for P3D instrument panel? (Justflights product page on the Arrow III mentions F1 integration but not RXP ie. https://www.justflight.com/product/pa28r-arrow-iii).

2. With regards to the DRM. How many installs am I allowed using RXP's GTN version? I'd like to use it in a laptop and desktop if possible. Also, wIll it be a problem using it with a VPN (which uses dynamic IP addresses)?

Thank you.

@oneleg Hi,

First things first: most aircraft, if not all, can use any gauge in general. This is just how the Prepar3D/FltSim panel system is designed/works. Second: any aircraft with 'integration' just means there is a 3D bezel/knob option, and a pre-configured gauge setting.

Having said this, you'd understand it is natural our products not only run with ANY aircraft as a popup window obviously, but also with ANY pre-configured aircraft mostly.

Please review these two links on our forums: the first one about JustFlight's Arrow specifically (answering your question), the other for any aircraft:

There is one item for which the integration is specific: 3D bezel and knobs embed code to command the gauges. This is 'baked' in the model by the aircraft modeller and can't be changed. However, there are two avenues for this:

1) There is a way to 'intercept' this baked code and 'transform' it live, in the form of an XML gauge you can add to the panel.cfg file. It is further detailed in our forums and once you do it one you'll see how easy it is.

2) You can lobby aircraft vendors and voice your needs! Our product includes and installs all the information and the custom code needed for any third party vendor. The hardest part for them is to create the 3D model. Since it is already done, only remains to embed the code: this is a 2H work for any seasoned modeller when using our modeldef.xml file.

 

Our EULA permits you installing both on the desktop and the laptop provided you don't run the 2 at the same time.

As for DRM, our e-commerce partner procurement solution is quite standard and offering a number of re-install by default, with the capability to re-arm online easily. I can't tell for the VPN question but I guess this shouldn't be a problem at all, otherwise you'll quickly now: if VPN is an issue, it won't process the purchase either.

You'll get detailed information about the e-commerce process in our store FAQ here:
