Anyone using the new Octavi IFR-1 hardware?

I just got mine and while it seems to be a brilliant unit, I'm having difficulty accessing the shift function of the lower buttons when using the G1000.

Anyone having similar experiences?

Pressing the main dual knob (it's a momentary press, as well as the knobs) should 'shift' between the main and (secondary) blue commands.  Is that not working?

I contacted the company and they got right back to me; turns out, I had not downloaded and installed the Mobiflight Event module (since I don't use Mobiflight, I didn't think it was required).

Now the unit is working fabulously. I highly recommend it!

Awesome!  Glad you got it working.

Yes, Mobiflight is needed unless you only fly default planes, with deafult AP and avionics.

Strictly speaking, I didn't download the Mobiflight software, only Octavi's Mobiflight Event module.

As an aside, the unit doesn't appear to work with PMDG aircraft although it does (to a limited degree) with Horizon's B787.

I was a Kickstarter and use it since day one. great little device! Use it in every GA with a GNS530 (and sometimes G1000).

Does anyone know if the octavi also works well with a GTN750 unit?
