You are right Geof.Been waiting for this. Its 10:30 here. I'll get it tomorrow. :). I have some work to do fitting both the 530 and the 430 in many of my aircrafts. I;ve forgotten how that FS Panel thingi works. :)Manny

Perhaps your good news is my bad news. Sure, this is neat, but it's not my cup of tea. Meanwhile, the A320 has seemingly been abandoned which disappoints me.

Hi all,I've been looking forward for the FSX Garmin a long, long time.Is the Garmin working OK in Vista? Is the use of the Garmin in FSX still based on the Garmin Trainer? If yes, Is the Garmin Trainer still a 16 bit program?Ulf BCore2Duo X6800 3.3GHz4GB RAM Corsair XMS2-8500C5BFG 8800GTX, Creative SB X-FiFSX Acc/SP2, Vista 32

Running fine in Vista 32. 64 may still be a problem as is my elite harware module which I recently bought... :-(Don't know about the 16 bit vs. 32 bit the response time seems almost exactly like the real world unit. (I don't own one but I fly regularly as safety pilot for one who has one). Amazing cause I know as much or more than my friend who has one as I've practiced many more hours in the sim than he has flown for real.

You have it wrong, Geoff ;) and I agree with Alex, I know him! He's a good guy.Glad that you, Alex, appreciate what Jean-Luc has accomplished here for, as with me, I know that you use these Garmin units in real life, and that it will further your currency using FS in these days of absurd fuel prices. Not easy flying for real these days, is it?Many real pilots will appreciate this, like yourself.Remember when we paid some $3000 to upgrade our real non-WAAS units to WAAS, and then Garmin raised the price to $3000 for the upgrade alone, and the avionics shop added their $1000 or more to that for the new antenna, wiring, etc? These days, one might spend as much as $4500 to upgrade their non-WAAS units.Indeed, Jean-Luc has a family to support, and he knows that there are more real GA Garmin pilots out there like you, ones who will appreciate this fine piece of avionics, than there are Airbus captains.Happy to have you supporting Jean-Luc's fine work, despite the Airbus delay. :)I know you wanted to see the Airbus, but I also know where your real heart lay, and while the Airbus project is not dead, I am happy to see your support for a piece of avionics that is more prevelant in the world today than any Airbus or any jet airliner is.That's right, more Garmins out in the real world of aviation than all the world's jet airliners from all the manufacturers put together and multiplied by 2, or is it 6 or 10? :)Regards,http://www.dreamfleet2000.com/gfx/images/F...R_FORUM_LOU.jpg

64 is not provided for yet, as it is still proving troublesome (Vista is not exactly easy to deal with to say the least), and I hope MS replaces it soon!.However, RXP will get it working with 64, but they had to get the unit out for the vast majority who use 32 and, make no mistake about it, the vast majority of FS users are using 32.Geof, you are using Elite hardware?Oy! Didn't I ever send you over to my friend, Mike Altman, at Precision Flight Controls (PFC)?Send me an e-mail and I'll hook you up with them. Great folks too.Regards,http://www.dreamfleet2000.com/gfx/images/F...R_FORUM_LOU.jpg

Don't talk to me about Vista-I have had 3 months of Vista h@@@....and I am still there-the sp1 update Vista causes havock on my new computer every time. I have spent a month with ms support-and it looks like it may continue for quite a while...fsx looks like a picnic in compare..are things not supposed to get better with time?I envy the 1st version of windows that I could restore in 20 minutes from a cassette tape drive in the early 1980's-things certainly don't seem to be better now...and catch 22 has a new meaning!The only elite hardware I got was the radio stack-and after buying it they promptly issued a statement that they would not suppport vista 64.Have not done pfc yet-but with the current fuel prices now-even with all the troubles fs/fsx it is probably a better bargain!http://www.mediafire.com/imgbnc.php/1b5baf...b9f427f694g.jpgMy blog:http://geofageofa.spaces.live.com/

I love my PFC Cirrus II with radio stack, very high quality and excellent support from a friendly staff. I'd easily call it Beechcraft quality :)

I agree the PFC would be the ultimate. I do have a rather nice setup though-with an actual real Baron throttle quad that was sent to me for free from another wonderful flight simmer out of the blue.(There are some nice flight simmers out there believe it or not! :-lol).The only thing missing is a certain Baron on the screen.... cough....Lou.....I just won't be making the step to Vista 64 for some time-though considering my troubles with Vista 32 I might get twice the troubles! :-lolhttp://www.mediafire.com/imgbnc.php/1b5baf...b9f427f694g.jpgMy blog:http://geofageofa.spaces.live.com/http://forums.avsim.net/user_files/188849.jpg

All right..this requires the latest and greatest FS Panel if I want to modify the VC and I Installed that and wanted to see if everything was ok. But this new version of FSPanel...I can't see the bitmap of most of my gauges when I open the PANEL.CFGs. Sigh!Manny
