GTN750 Integration WIP

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

I'm reworking the panel to integrate a GTN750, this is a WIP.
There is much to be done (PFD, AP, APU, FMS, Aircraft.cfg & FLTINFO Gauge)
Will also fix some FMS errors so people can choose to fly GTN or FMS

Linked pics are not hi res.

I'm back at work and IMHO not ready yet to share. (Please give me a few days)

I also want to thank you for your effort in providing a potential GTN 750 modification. This is great news and I may now consider purchasing Carenado's version of this business jet.

Doing fine. Just got the OK from Carenado.

Not finished Yet to what I want at the end, but the GTN750, AP and clickspots are in working order.
Please note I won't be including fixes to the FMS and other instruments (As Carenado will be doing that for version 1.1)

Will cleanup and make the ReadMe file today, probably ready to Beta Test by You tomorrow.

Cheers.

Hello Gals/Guys

Thank You for Your interest in the mod.

I's been reported by some FSX Steam users that VC clicking on the GTN750  does not work.
That is a know problem with some airplanes. (Not only for FSX Steam, but for FSX and P3D)

One Solution is to disable Instrument Reflections every time You load the plane.
For the Carenado FA50 EX Click -> Shift +6 and uncheck the Instrument Reflections checkbox.

Or for a more elegant solution, please redownload the file from the link supplied. (No zip file Name Change, Just overwrite the files in \panel.GTN)
I Added a clickspot over the BRT/DIM btn in the MFD bezel to toggle Instrument Reflections

Optional Update for. FA50_GTN750_mod_1

Hi Ramon:

Flew a 1200mile flight today on FSX. Perfect end to end. Flew an RNAV approach and everything works fine. Great piece of work Ramon. Only suggestion I could make is it would be nice to control the PFD bottom display to show waypoints, airports, VORs, or nothing. I realize those formats are controlled from the CDU. Is there a way to accomplish that?

Thanks again for your hard work.

I'm glad You liked it.

As for You r suggestion: Sue I can do that.

II plan to further enhance the FLTInfo gauge, Not only adding Your suggested feature, but to display Messages, etc.
Just Yesterday night, I installed the new F1 GTN750 v2.08, so I will also try to  implement VNAV and other enhancements.

Will be away for the weekend.

Thanks for posting

It is ready. The MFD/MENU BTN now shows the display options selectable via LSK's. Plus some other new working buttons on the FLTInfo gauge.

I've done two successful flights with the GTN750 and it's been great! I didn't have any problems with the autopilot flying the route or approaches.
