Carenado A36 No Power GNS430/530 (resolved)

Recommended Posts

 

After replacing the default 430 with the RXP430, I can see the unit, but I can not power it on. I have tried various power options for the RXP 430 but nothing works. The default A36 unit 2 powers on fine. (This scenario is also the same for the RXP 530 as well as the GTN750)

I tried some troubleshooting  today using different scenarios. First I loaded the original A36 panel.cfg to start clean.

First I  replaced the A36  430-1 with your 430 in  Window00 and left VC 03 as is. I could power on both VC units fine. In window-00 the RXP unit 1 still did not work and the A36 unit 2 worked OK. 

Next after reloading panel.cfg I  left the window00 units as A36 units and they both worked. I replaced unit 1 in the VC with the RXP unit and it would not power on but unit 2 worked OK.

I noticed another thing to be aware of. I I try to remove all RXP units from the Add On menu, it does remove all the RXP stuff but does not reinstate the orginal  units. I just have a black space were the unit should have been. That's mainly why I reload the panel. cfg file.

You have not mentioned if you are using FSX or P3D.  I am using FSX.  I am also using RXP GNS v2 gauges.  Would you confirm that is what you are using?

I have a nice working panel with a pair of RXP GTN 430's.  It includes a single popuip that brings up both gauges as a cluster.  A left-click on either brings up the cluster popup, another left-click on the cluster closes the popup.  My panel also includes an .xml file provided by another user here that automatically sets the Carenado virtual cockpit's "Instrument Reflections" to default to off (otherwise an A36 shift-3 option).  Those instrument reflections, if I recall, interfered with using the GNS knobs and buttons in the VC, so had to be set to off.

Hi,

Have you purchased the GNS 430 V2 or just the GNS 530 V2?

I didn't know they were purchased individually. What I ordered was titled Reality XP GNS 530W/430W V2 assuming that it included both models. Order # was 1428037.

It seems our communication might have miss-guided you.

What you've purchased, as labeled in the e-commerce installer is either:

  • RealityXP Garmin GNS 530 (FltSim)
  • RealityXP Garmin GNS 430 (FltSim)

Can you please help us make this more prominent so that it helps other customers?

As of now, we're communicating the very notion of the 2 different products in many ways:

  • depicted visually with the side bar graphics in the e-commerce installer
     
  • exhibited as 2 different products in 2 different 'boxes' in our website.
     
  • e-commerce installer right side description mention:
    "The WAAS-certified GNS 530W lead the industry with multitasking" or
    "The WAAS-certified GNS 430W lead the industry with multitasking".
     
  • the e-commerce installer file name is either
    rxpGNS2-530-FSIM.exe or
    rxpGNS2-430-FSIM.exe
     
  • the freely downloadable product's manuals mention (p4):
    "it requires purchasing and installing both products to unlock both GNS models."
     
  • It is also hinted to with our current special offer shown as:
    Complete your collection and save 50% on the 2nd product!*
    Add 2nd GNS product for only $24.95

There are certainly more places, starting with our forums too.

What would you suggest?

fppilot... I use P3Dv4.4 and simPlugins Panel Builder gauges. I really am not using the RXP 530/430 gauges for anything. I bought them before I bought realsimgear's GTN750 bezel that uses the RXP GTN-750 for the touch screen display. It works just fine. I was just experimenting with the 430 to use when I fly virtual reality.

Thanks Jean-Luc... I presume the last half of your post was not directed for me, but I see that you are well aware of the confusion that the product description could cause. I am not actually using the 430 for anything since I purchased your GTN750 to use with realsimgear's GTN750 bezel. (yes, I did purchase the 750, not the 650), so this is not a problem for me. I do have some questions about using your 750 in Carenado's A36, but I will submit a new post for that. 

Thanks again for explaining this.
