Popout G1000

Recommended Posts

I came across this in the Sim Innovations forums today and wondered if anyone had been able to confirm this. I'll be at my sim this afternoon and will try it myself, but wanted to post it now in case it's correct and of use to others.

"Hi if you want popouts in MSFS2020 you need to switch the battery on in your aircraft and when for example the left screen of the G1000 starts up you hold right ALT on your keyboard and hover over the screen. Then a magnifying glass will appear and if you click it the G100 screen will be undocked and you can drag it around to another screen and resize it to your AM Panel. I hope this helps."

Any cockpit screen will indeed popup this way, alas without buttons and dials, so that it can be used for visual reference only.

trying to move those dials with the mouse scroller, wearing track IR in turbulence = impossible.  I wish there were a way to disable the  mouse zooming in and out when scrolling.

you can...just go to your mouse settings and clear the zoom and unzoom on the mouse. You can still use the (-,=) keys to zoom. If you have buttons on the side of your mouse, you can map those to zoom as well. That way you dont have that annoying zoom issue when moving the dials. 

 

really wish they wouldve made those buttons and dials keyboard or button mapped. Couldve put my thrustmaster MFD cougars to good use.

I wonder where did they find this information since there is no manual?

Trial and error by going through ALL the devices and seeing the assignments and clearing what is not desired 🙂

This is a much needed tip, thanks.  I have an 11" monitor behind my Cougar MFDs so now i will be able to put it to use.  I probably cant fit the G1000 behind the MFD because the open space is a perfect square, but will be valuable for the other squarish sized instruments.

I'm going to try to run the G1000 on my iPad via DuetDisplay.  This would certainly be an awesome feature if I can get this working!

It works well, you can also resize the G1000 and the instruments into any screen ratio.  The G1000 is easily readable inside a Cougar MFD.  One drawback is the game does not save your anchored panels onto another monitor, you have to drag them over every time you start a new flight.  Hopefully something they can fix soon.

I can confirm that it's working. You don't need to turn on and off the battery, just hover over the screens and hold the right ALT until you get the + symbol with the circle and click and it will open a pop up. This is great!

I have been flying around with X-Plane popouts in Air Manager bezels in 11.5 inch touch screens. In one word: marvelous.

I am also trying to achieve a similar result with FS2020. The popout with “Right Alt - move mouse - click - drag” works fine for one instrument, e.g., the PFD. The popout for the MFD then stubbornly lands in the same window as the PFD. I have not yet found out how to separate these Siamese Twins.

Once this succeeds, both bezels can be adapted to exchange information with FS2020. This will merely be a transformation from XPUIPC to FSUIPC based instructions. A lot of work, but feasible. And, of course, we will have to wait for FSUIPC7 to work flawlessly with FS2020.

A G1000 PFD and MFD on touch screens, extended wth Russ Barlow’s “Knobster”, make flying so much more fun!
