Newbie to Reality XP panels. Need help (resolved)

Recommended Posts

got back into real flying now. My firend has a Garmin 530w in plane.  So for practice I like to know what I have to do to use Reality XP Garmin 530 panel in flight simulator.

 

I still have Windows XP SP3 and FS9 installed

Went to the Reality website.  Says something about $35 for license.  Is that the price I need to pay to download the software.  Also need to know if it will wortk for me

Any help greatly appreciated

Yes, you will have to purchase and install the RXP GNS 530 for FSX.

Second question is: Which airplane?

Some airplanes come with built in support for a GNS 530, for others it may be tricky or not possible to install a GNS into the cockpit panel..

Tell us what you are looking for, and someone here can help, I am sure..

So I just purchase lice and download the software.  So FS( I would download FSX one. Just wanted to use in some of the fefault places like C-172. Also have a Carranado Seneca which would like to use it on and a Citation II from Eaglesoft, all old technology.

 

Not upgrading my system yet because waiting for MSFS2020

Does the Carenado Seneca support a GNS 530 in the panel, or does it have dual GNS 430s?

The default C172 does not support a GNS 530 to be added.. other than a popup window, which may just be OK.. depending on your needs.

Otherwise, it might make sense to purchase an inexpensive addon plane specifically for your training requirements..

Popup is okay.  

Last question

It states $35 for the lincense.  So  gives you authority then to download the software and install?  There is no other costs?

Please note:

There are other GNS in our store page.
These are legacy e-commerce installers customers of these products wanting to reinstall.

The correct GNS you'd purchase is the genuine Reality XP GNS 540/430 V2

Which you can download directly from our home page here:
http://reality-xp.com/index2.html#pricing

It is compatible with WinXP up to Win10 and FS9 up to P3D5

Just to make sure, I can use this as a popup on any aircraft correct?

Will it install and then I can just do Shift-3  and the Reality GPS will pop up instead of default?

It is slightly more complicated than that...

It is done individually for each aircraft.

You will have to read the User Guide for instructions, and if you add the GNS, using the RXP app, it will add a new window to your panel.cfg file.

If you want it as shift+3, replacing your current GPS, you can instead edit the panel.cfg file with Notepad and change Window02 (which pops up with shift+3).

Example for the C172:

 

[Window02]
size_mm=456,378
window_size=0.5
position=8
BACKGROUND_COLOR=0,0,0
VISIBLE=0
ident=GPS_PANEL
zorder=4

//gauge00=fs9gps!gps_500,            0,0
gauge00=rxpGNS2!GNS_530_1, 0, 0,456,378
