    User Feedback


    I picked this one up.  The Synthetic Vision is amazing.  However, the use of the navigation (building a flight plan, going direct to a point, and following an approach) is less than ideal.  In fact, I have 3 Carenado planes with the G1000 and have yet to successfully build, edit and fly a flight plan. Even watched the youtube videos on out to do it all, but no success getting the system to even fly a RNAV approach correctly. :(

    The rest of the plane is beautiful though!

    I wonder how much the subscription to "WebSimConnect" is and what you're supposed to do when it runs out?

    I don't see a lot of information on it.

    I see that they extended the "WebSimConnect" to a 3-year free subscription.  I'll go ahead and try it out now. That seems like it would be worth having.

    Has anyone seen an in-depth technical review of the G1000 in this product?

    I appreciate the products Carenado produces, their target audience has generally been less the technically realistic side, more to balanced ease of use and better graphics quality.

    A such I'm wondering how far this version goes toward G1000 system modeling.

    The G1000 requires constant practice for me to function well with it in my GA flying. I'm hoping to add this to my real-world practice in a more fun way. The G1000 simulator produced by Garmin is, of course, fantastic for practice. It's not as fun as P3D aircraft flying with a C172 or C182 G1000 well-modeled system added on would be.

     

    Frankly, for the price, I should just try it out...
