Problem with the JustFlight Arrow

I thought the Arrow was modeled on a plane they have easy access too.

That GPS unit is probably as rare as an 8  track tape player.

The Arrow they used will have just one of the GPS options available to us installed. Probably the gn530.

There are obviously no real life Pipers where you can swap out the Avionics will nilly by sliding out the current GPS and slipping in a different one. That would need to be done by a licenced aircraft mechanic and then certified as accurate before the new install could be used legally for IFR.

An avionics tech would be be required to make the swap.

Well, had the same plane in FSW from them and only the GPS100 was in it so I assumed that was what was in the plane they modeled it after.

This is what their sales page for FSW said:

Following on from their award-winning TB-10 Tobago & TB-20 Trinidad, Tornado GR1, L-1011 TriStar Professional and Canberra PR9 add-ons, this highly detailed simulation of the PA-28R Arrow III has been developed by Just Flight's in-house team following comprehensive, hands-on research with a real-life Arrow III, G-BGKU, based at Conington Airfield.

Why not? I literally swapped my old GNS430W by pulling former and sliding new IFD440 by myself. I'm not A&P and my airplane is still IFR certified. And of course it was totally legal and counted as preventive maintenance 🙂

I worked in Avionics for a couple of years in South Florida, and my guess is much work would have to be done on the G 100 install to modify it to fit anything like a 430 or 530. I also think that the G 100 would have been replaced by most anyone that had a credit card.

Nice!  Where can I get this mod?  Is it at flightsim.to?  😆

I think what Martyn is saying is that their real-world model didn't have such a switch (in other words, it had a standalone GPS100 in it, which I suppose would only provide "for reference" guidance and wouldn't lock to the autopilot  ?? ).    Even so, it would be nice to see it added for those who want to use the GPS100.

I am wondering if the JF GPS100 in the sim could even work with the MSFS autopilot.  It's good to see the 530 work with it, but does the JF GPS100 have that level of functionality?  I've never really delved into the GPS100, even in the P3D version of this aircraft.

That is all fine and dandy, but their MSFS version has the GPS tied to the autopilot, for better or worse.  And then they provide a clickspot to change it...

If they were simulating their "real world" airplane, the NAV1 radio would be tied to the autopilot... period. 🙂

But that's not true.  the real world aircraft DOES have a NAV/GPS switch when a GPS 100 is installed.  It's a real life requirement in the Garmin GPS 100 installation manual.

While I agree with you,  Martyn says no..

I know, that's what I said.

From what I gather, their real-world airplane does not have a NAV/GPS switch.

As for real life "requirement", maybe their install is incorrect/improper or whatever.  Apparently their real world airplane GPS100 functions without the switch.  I can only assume that means it provides no data to the autopilot (i.e. it's a standalone gps unit, like a stick-on GPS250), but that's my assumption...I'm not all that familiar with that system.
