Glass Panels for the Cessna?

Recommended Posts

>The vast majority of aircraft don't have all those fancy>expensive computer displays.>Their owners don't want or need them and often couldn't afford>them if they could.The majority of new GA airplanes are now going glass. The vacuum system is on it's way out, and panels are going all electric.Owners are loving glass. Most of the new "training" airplanes at the airport next door to my home, have glass installed. It's the future! Let's don't pretend that glass is just a limited luxury. L.Adamson

"However, it seems to be impossible to include the moving map (according to Eaglesoft) besides the two GPS, as its impact on the system would be rather heavy."This is a misunderstanding of what we have said...1. We have never stated that it is impossible to have a "moving map" since our Avidynes already contain "moving map". You are referring to the Terrain Map underlay which is indeed a tough nut to crack without bringing systems to their knees, but we do have an alpha version that runs very poorly at this point in time.2. We are constantly working to find more efficient ways to accomplish this goal but "it ain't soup yet":-)

Oh, I was wrong than - I referred to the terrain map! I really appreciate that you people from eaglesoft (and ms as well!) constantly comment in this forum, thank you! And, btw, though I would love to see the terrain map, my system would probably be the first to break down, with a first generation Centrino and Intel 8xx chipset, so I (again) appreciate that you guys take care of slower systems. And let me point out again how much I love your Cirrus, it's absolutely beautiful and the best add-on plane I bought so far. Now your are asking how fs9 can run on such a crappy machine... Well, it does, and even pretty well imo.

It is a misconception to think Terrain map = Bad performance!You'll be amazed at how good the Reality XP ST3400 TAWS/RMI (Terrain map directly from the 3D terrain mesh of FS + sophisticated EGPWS terrain collision detection) runs on any computer.Hope this helps!

>You really don't need to be rude to convey a message, do you?>that's precisely the kind of comment that probably was the>reason why Microsoft people weren't posting publicly in forums>until recently.Just getting back to this, looks like the first post was edited...Wasn't at all trying to be rude, it was said tongue in cheek and the marketing department I am assuming is separate from the ACES team, if I'm wrong then I'm completely sorry, as it was not meant to be construed the way these two have apparently taken it.I was just saying to the ACES dev team to not let the marketing guys give them too much to live up to Unfortunately sometimes a sense of humor doesn't come across quite right when it's words written down on the internet...I'm totally sorry if I caused any sort of offense, it wasn't meant and certainly wasn't intended to come across the way it appears to have in some camps, it was just a friendly tease saying to the guys at the dev team to make sure the marketing heads at MS don't give them too much of a hard time ...Anyway hope that clears that up...

"Personally, I don't want such things in FS at all."J, you may find yourself in a distinct minority as real world manufactures such Piper, Cessna, Raytheon, and Columbia, along with Cirrus and Adams, continue building their Glass equipped aircraft.:-)A recent visit to Sun N Fun reveals that even the new Sport Pilot aircraft include Chelton, or some other Glass Avionics, in almost every aircraft we observed:-)

An advertisement is not necessarily something that helps the actual topic and it's a rather shallow approach (in my opinion) to responding to a person's comments.As a customer of RealityXP, I can firmly state that not all of their gauges work on all computers, I have one that has never worked on mine. So, sorry JL... but you're wrong... for posting an advertisement, and wrong for claiming your gauge works on all computers (not saying it doesn't work, just that the claim is over-reaching with no actual fact to support. He couldn't possibly have tested it out on all computers). Nothing personal, you just hit two of my pet peeves about public forum postings.FYI, had a customer posted a suggestion/statement regarding RealityXP's gauge... that would have been totally different.
