Integrating GTN 750 & GTN 650 into CT210 by Carenado

Recommended Posts

Hi,

did someone succesfully integrate both GTN into the Carenado CT210? I tried but it seems I failed. When I activate the GTN 750 in the plugins menu as GTN1, everything is fine. The bezel changes to the GTN750 and seems to work correctly at the first sight. Then I activate the GTN 650 (integrated into the GNS430 display)  as GTN2 the GTN 750 dissapears and the default GNS 530 is back in the VC. The GTN 750 is still activated in the plugins menu. I thought first I found a workaround by first activating the GTN 650 and afterwards the GTN 750, but when realoding the plane, I get the same effect. Any solutions, ideas on this?

[edit] I also see, that the turn knobs don't work. Neither with the GTN 750 3D bezel (only the push button is working), nor the GTN 650 inside the GNS 430 bezel.

 

Cheers,

Stefan

Hi,

the knobs broke with our latest update and we have a fix on its way.

As for the dual GTN, I suspect the Carenado code logic to hide/show the GTN 3D bezel depending on our shared datarefs has not been designed for this scenario, therefore, misinterprets the additional GTN and reverts to a default GPS instead.

v2.5.13 has been released and fixes the knob issue.
