approach selection in 172 or bonanza

Recommended Posts

Weather's a little murky in S Texas so thought id shoot some rnav approaches today.  But either I've forgotten a step (very possible) or the last update has crippled the selection process for the approach selection ?  Could someone else try and report back ?

Thanks

You MUST have a destination file in the Flight Plan - it can be entered manually (while in flight) thru the G1000Nxi screen.  No Destination - then No Approach is offered as a selection

Thanks Tacoma

I tried another set of airports and now I can select the various approaches.  Must have been operator error on my part.

Thanks for the quick response.

well....it must be peculiar to the garmin in the bonanza and 172.  I can easily select whatever approach is desired in the cj4 or tbm, but not in these two aircraft.  Just for reference, the flight plan i tried was from KHOU to KTKI.  KTKI has rnav and ils approaches.  I can select any approach in the cj4 or tbm, but only the ils in the 172 or bonanza.  Odd thing is if I reverse and go from KTKI to KHOU, I can select all the approaches in any of the aircraft for KHOU ?!

You can just go to PROC and select an airport and get a list of approaches as well.  Takes about the same amount of time.  If I'm just shooting approaches I open the proc screen and enter an airport.  If I'm flying an entire route I'll do the origin and destination way.

Well....turns out all this effort could have been avoided had i just downloaded the G1000Nxi from the marketplace.  What a HUGE improvement over the default units and that cleared up all the issues I was having trying to select approaches.  Thanks for all the suggestions.
