The RXP GTN 750 can also be integrated into the cockpit of the Aerobask Eclipse 550 (similar to the Aerobask Panthera😞

I wish there was 650 mod as well.

I could have sworn there was a mod out there for the Eclipse 550 that let you use both the 750 and the 650 but when I went searching for you, I couldn't find it for love nor money. I'm going crazy looking for it because I swore I used it before, If anyone out there has it, can you post a link?

Thanks. I may try to create it myself using the Baron 58 tutorial. I don’t have the slightest idea how to create these mods. Might be a disaster. 🙂

Zarigani pretty sure I've seen it too, really wish the forum here was a bit more organised.

ClayWagner, that baron example is relatively straight forward, a few videos on youtube too.

Would be happy to give it a go if you want, but need a file from you so I know where it goes.. If you could go into keybindings and look for "Make screenshot of your panels", assign something then use it. Should create a "Panel_Preview" image file in the Eclipse 550 > cockpit_3D > -PANELS- folder. Just make sure the avionics are on when you do that and don't resize the file. I can't really test it, no guarantees I get it right first go 😉

Give this a roll of the dice...

Unfortunately it did not work. I copied the entire contents and overrode it. The original 650 was still showing.

Outdated already 😛

Only had my macbook with me, which doesn't run GTN's. Code kept me busy on a few weeknights..
Just tested using two 750's so it should be working with the 650 now. Remapped the 3D panel buttons while i was at it. 
Files are in the aircraft mods thread
