RXP GTN 750 and GNS430 V1 in Milviz Redux 310 issue

Recommended Posts

I was able to get the GTN750 and the GNS430 into the Milviz 310 Redux panel, but with a huge performance hit and a penalty of no ATC response in the window, can't activate a flt plan for instance.

 

Any ideas or is this just not workable?

Hi,

Can you please detail more? Are you sure you've put a _1 and a _2 GPS and not twice _1 or twice _2 ?

As for ATC, did you by any chance enabled "Auto-Update Simulator GPS Waypoints" ? If so, this will override the default GPS waypoints with the ones from our GPS instead and this may prevent ATC from working since ATC uses the default GPS route. Instead, you might want to enable "Auto-Save Active Route (.PLN)" which saves the active route to a .PLN file you can manually load for ATC to pick up. (unfortunately the SDK doesn't offer any mean to update the flight plan from a gauge, only from a file, so we rather let you, the user, do it manually).

Thanks for the response. I am sure I have a  1 and a 2. With the GTN750 I really don't need the GNS430 but since I have it I thought I would try for more realism. The GNS430 works fine with the GTN750. It is just that the a/c takes a long time to load in the FSX window and although I can click on various things in the ATC window (change airports and so on), It won't take all commands. I will check the auto update simulator GPS waypoints.

 

I think maybe I am trying to push too much in the sim.

This should be fine 'performance' wise, especially the GNS is lighted than the GNS. However, should you use for example a GTN_750_1 and a GNS_430_1 (instead of _2), they both will fight for some resources AND further cause problems down the road because both are the same unit number. The unit number serves at least the purpose to differentiate GPS sources for a number of FltSim related vars. In addition, default settings would put both on the same CPU core...

OK. I did have two GXX_1s instead of a one and a two. However I cannot figure out how to get them both in. Again, my GNS430 is a version 1.

 

Here is the panel cfg.

I have an rxpGTN 750_1 and an rxpGTN 650_2 in my panel and working well.  My 750 is in [Vcockpit17] and my 650 is in [Vcockpit18].  I note that you have your GNS 430 in [Vcockpit01] and I do not know if it makes a difference but you have the 430 in a position above the console file that matches your intended panel.

Also, another issue may be the quoted line above from your [Vcockpit18] section.  Mine is the last line in my {Vcockpit01] and reads like this:

gauge11=rxpGTN!f1vc.xml,0,0,1,1

My [Window##] sections will be different from yours as I consistently match to yoke buttons the same popups across all my aircraft.  Here is my panel.cfg file. Just click the hidden content button below. By the way, to compact a message into hidden content like I have done you click the eyeball icon just to the right of the Font button in the message toolbar and paste your content into the window that is then provided.  That allows you to later scroll the topic much more efficiently.

Again, my GNS430 is a version 1.

Thank you for the reminder, I've missed it in the topic title!

This is why it doesn't work properly then: the GNS legacy is 'old' and certainly not fit to run alongside the GTN.

I'd suggest you consider investing in the GNS V2 product: it has much more features, benefits, performance!
