Yep, 23 April 2020.  Also, BTW, FSUIPC6 has been updated to ver 6.0.12.

Hi Bert,

On the basis of your report, I purchased the RXP GTN 750 from Reality XP's website.  I installed it on my Flysimware LR35.  It was working with the Garmin trainer 2.7.1, but after I upgraded it to ver. 3.0.0.0, the RXP GTN 750 stopped working.  All I get is two bank screens on the two GTN 750s.  The click spots all work, etc. 

I did a "Check Update...." Ctrl + right mouse click, and it says I have the most current RXP version 2.5.28.0. 

First, did I something with the install or the update?  Anything I need to do to get run with the GTN version 3.0.0.0?

No worries as I have a copy of the Garmin 2.7.1 trainer. I can simply uninstall and reinstall the old one.  I would like to get the new one working. 

Thanks,

Rich Boll

Probably time to take this to the RXP support forum (on Avsim)..

I checked for updates as mentioned above and installed the new version, was prompted to install the new trainer, and everything worked cleanly.

What do you see in the rxp log file (in Documents)?

I see:

21/01/12 17:52:25.472 06560 -    ] # rxpGtnSim64.dll version 2.5.28.0

Rich,

If you haven't done so,  try running the FSW GPS Management Tool for the Lear35 from the Win10 Start menu.

Hi Al,

I ran the FSW Lear35 Management Tool to activate the RXP device and it was running correctly with the prior version. It only stopped working when I upgraded the Garmin trainer to version 3.0.0.0

Thanks!

Hi Bert, 

Are you talking about the rxpGtnSim.dll file?  If so, this is what is shows:

21/01/13 15:44:11.945 31144 -    ] # rxpGtnSim64.dll version 2.5.28.0
21/01/13 15:44:11.944 31144 INFO ] 
21/01/13 15:44:15.084 31144 ERROR] trainer not found or not supported

Sounds like the RXP is actually not finding the trainer? 

Any thoughts?

Did you install the Trainer in its default location?

Rich,

If it's any help, I see by looking at dates that I have Garmin folders that were updated when I updated the RXP a few days ago at C:\Program Files (x86)\Garmin and at C:\ProgramData\Garmin.  Also, when the RXP installer ran, it started up the install for the new Garmin Trainer, and then finished the RXP install. Did you see anything saying it was going to install the new Garmin trainer?

Also, under my Win10 Start menu I have an entry "Garmin Aviation Trainers", and if I open that I get a Garmin Window that opens with a menu on the left. If I select Version Manager it shows I have ver 3.0 of the Garmin Launcher installed.

Also, you might try running the trainer, switch databases back and forth, then try in the sim again.

Hi Bert, 

Here's the location: C:\Program Files (x86)\Garmin\Trainers\Launcher

Hi Al,

I had the F1 GTN add on, which they say will not be compatible with the new trainer for some time.  I need to have the Garmin trainer updated for the real world work that I do, which is one reason why I moved to the RXP version after Bert's post.   With initial RXP install, I did not allow it download the Garmin trainer since I already had ver 2.7.1 installed.  After I verified that the RXP GTN was working, i.e., "one problem at a time", I then went back and using the Garmin trainer, updated the trainer. I sounds like I broke something in that process.

When you run the Garmin trainer and click on the "About" tab, does it say "v3.0.0.0" in the upper right hand corner? 

The new Garmin Trainer ver 3.0.0.0 works just fine.  I was using it today.
