Just thought the same ... ending support and updates within half a year is not very user friendly.

I haven't bought his GTN750 for MSFS - currently there is no cockpit integration, so it's an external app only. Good to know. I won't EVER buy it now. He ditched support for the latest Garmin trainer and now bowed out completely. I only bought it in January of this year. Thankfully, I bought my GNS units from RealityXP. Looks like it's time to switch to them for GTN too.

Looks like the end is near for the Flight1 GTN Products.

This has been posted in the product page on the Flight1 website.

Important Information on the GTN/GNS Complete Series Products

The developers of the GTN Complete and GNS Complete products have informed Flight One Software that they have stopped active development on these products. As a result, we will discontinue sales of these products after the close of business on June 30, 2021. This decision is beyond Flight One Software's control. Updates and support for the GTN Complete and GNS Complete will end December 31, 2021. The developers will update for P3D v5.2 compatibility. Previous purchasers will still be able to re-download their purchases in their Flight1 Agent libraries.

 

 

As you may probably know me from the forums and you have associated me with the Flight1 GTN and GNS, I am here to correct a misunderstanding. I understand your frustration that a product that you have purchased will not be supported anymore and that development will end. However, I am not the developer who took the decision.

I have left Flight1 for one year already! Active development being stopped on the Flight1 GTN and GNS does not involve me.

My main goal is all customers who know me or who have worked with me to remember all the good times when they received prompt and helpful advice, to solve their problems. This has been my guiding philosophy and it is the driving principle behind TDS Sim Software and the TDS GTNXi. This new company will allow me to once again prove who I am, the tech support that I offer the highest quality products and most importantly new and innovative solutions. You can all be sure that you will never be let down!

As you have seen in the past, I have always pushed the simulator limits, further and further, and I will not stop here. Sure, the TDS GTNXi is currently not as good as some customers expect it to be, but you can be sure that I will give more than 100% to make it so much better!

This is only the beginning!

 

Best regards,

Tiberiu

OK, Tiberiu. Thanks for the clarification. Good to know that you haven't been the one to pull the plug on this. I am guessing this is also why they haven't supported the new Garmin Trainer release. Oh well... Shame on whoever made these calls.

Well this all a bit disappointing.  So if I want GTN 750 support beyond P3D5.2 I need to move over to Reality XP at about 60 AUD for one unit or 80 AUD for 2 at the sale price.  As I have largely moved to MSFS 2020 for GA flying apart from the RealAir Duke and the F1 Mustang/King Air this seems a poor option.

Yeah, but sooner or later the end of a piece of software comes about.

I've personally worked with companies on Enterprise software sold for $100,000 a pop where eventually the software came to an end.

Not much you can do about it, other than bite the bullet, and you definently cannot take your $$ with you  😉

Alhough spending on the signifcant other half is an option 😀

I'll be in the same boat, however for the time being I'm sticking with P3D, I'm enjoying flying too many geat planes (like the Real Air / Vertx / A2A and various mid level jets) to give it up for the sake of shinyness.

If only our Aussie $$ was worth a bit more.

Cheers

Disappointing, yes.  What would be more disappointing--near catastrophic in fact--would be having to hangar my RealAir Duke for the duration.  If another GTN is needed if only to keep the Duke alone flying into the future, it's gonna be worth the $35 (USD) to me.

That said, based on today's exchange rate (1 AUD = 0.77 USD) the RXP GTN should be more like ~45 AUD at the sale price, shouldn't it?

Plus international transfer fees and typically it would be the combo of the 750/650 for those different sized spaces in the different VCs.

e.g. I have the F1 complete edition which is both.

PS - although I've had the RealAir Duke for quite some time, I've only just started flying it and it truely is one of a kind.

PPS - I just had to add some pics of it...

Fair play, if it wasn't your decision I accept that.
