TDS and WT GNS Compatibility

Recommended Posts

TDS will soon release an update for addons which allow for use of both TDS GTN and WT GNS (the new early access version in the Marketplace).

At the moment, addons like the Carenado PC12, Black Square Analog KingAir, and Blackbird (Milviz) C310, which use allow for a selection of GNS or GTN units, will not work completely.  Both units will fight for control over the autopilot.

Addons such as the FSW C414 are unaffected by these new GNS units because FSW has defined a set of avionics per model.

Here's my screenshot showing the TDS GTN 750Xi next to the WT GNS 430.  At the moment no variables are shown on the GNS430.  It may be possible, later, to have a secondary GPS source with populated data (I asked Matt from WT about this).  In this example I would use the GNS430 for additional navigational reference like selecting direct a fix to gather distance/track info.  That being said the GNS430 will still function as a COMM2/NAV2 for the time being.  Additionally, in this specific Carenado example, it is quite possible that Carenado will adapt a GTN 750Xi/650Xi combination instead of the 750/430.

I am now getting a completely black TDS 750 screen in the Black Square Caravan.

I uninstalled the WT GNS, but still no joy.  I will have to see if there are any PMS files that may be conflicting in the community folder, but they should co-exist as far as I know.

I like to trick airline passengers into thinking I have my own swimming pool in my back yard by painting a large blue rectangle on my patio!

Make sure it's actually uninstalled.  One of the small msfs updates accidentally added it back in for everyone as mandatory component.  Also temp disable PMS just to check.

Thanks Ryan.  I will try this after Sunday lunch.

A quick reinstall of the TDS unit did it Ryan.  It took seconds, then next time in to the sim it was all present and correct.  Thanks for your help!

I am really enjoying the Black Square Caravan now.  With the TDS, and the superb sound set from FTsim, it is an absolute joy.  The autopilot worked great linked to the TDS.  So easy to use.

I am actually enjoying this aircraft more than the Kodiak at the moment.  I can grease the landings every time in the Caravan, and it just feels right on the handling.
