No Vertical Guidance

Recommended Posts

one more question: i've noticed that when coming in for approaches to non-ils runways and using the "Visual" button on the GTN 750, that some of the time it will say "No Vertical Guidance" and will provide localizer-only info. however many other times it will provide a 3 degree glideslope for you to use in autopilot approach mode, same as if there was an ILS beam coming off the runway.

my question is how come the glideslope is provided in some of the cases and not others, and how to know ahead of time which airports are supported this way? how does the GTN 750 decide which runways to have a GS for and which to only have LOC for?

thanks!

Hi...

I'm not as familiar with the GTN as I am with the GNS - but - there are different kinds of GPS approaches - some provide Vertical Guidance - others do not... The GTN doesn't decide anything - you decide by picking and loading the approach...

This link has a nice matrix to help:

Hi,

this one is very easy:

1) open the GTN Pilot's Guide installed with the trainer (either find the pdf on your drive, or start the Garmin launcher)

2) in the PDF reader search box, type "visual approach", or, peruse the manual TOC/index

3) I'll save you the first 2 steps, here is what it says:

NOTE: This feature is available in software v6.30 and later. Not all airports in the database support visual approaches.

4) As for "how to know ahead", I'll let you read the manual which explains how to.

Can you tell me where to locate the guide. I see many directories that were installed all across my PC with heaps of files, its pretty confusing and hard to memorize where everything is: 

1) C:/ProgramFiles/realityxp/gtnsimulation
2) C:/programfiles/garmin
3) C:/realityxp
4) C:/users/<me>/AppData/Loca/Garmin
(hidden files below)
5) C:/programData/garmin
6) C:/programData/realityXP

There might be more but that's all i can find for now
