Advise needed about RXP GTN 750 database

Recommended Posts

Can someone advise me about the database status on RXP 750 compared to F1 version  

I’ve had F1 Gtn750 for years but Airac is not upto date and it seems to me that the plethora of new RNAV routes being added over last two years has made the F1 version outdated. 

1) I see RXP being offered with Airac 1803. Does this include all latest RNAV SIDS and STARS?

2) will RXP update this regularly / periodically? What’s is the policy please?

3). Sorry for being lazy and not looking but does it import flight plans from Simbrief? (Not a dealbreaker). 

thanks.

That is the database the current Garmin Trainer installs with. It will not be 100% up to date as of the current AIRAC cycle. Also, Garmin's worldwide database will not show smaller airfields due to database size.

It is a Garmin database, so if Garmin update the Trainer, sometimes the also update the database. RXP have no control over that at this time.

Sorry, can't answer that one although a planner called Little Navmap can import to the Garmin I believe.

I'm not from RXP, so if anything is different from the above I'm sure Jean-Luc will correct me, but that is how I understand it.

I have not used Simbrief, but if you are a member there just look to see it it provides an export to .gfp format. 

Oddly enough, there are more sites that provide export to the older and more complex Garmin GNS series file format (.fpl) than to .gfp.  Neither Skyvector or Fltplan.com do yet.  The file format for .gfp is pretty simple, but honestly hand building them from a route is no quicker than simply entering them in the GTN, especially if you use long airway segments.
