    No I don't believe it does. It seems to operate independently of the FMS mode of the autopilot and flight director.

    Couldn't tell where the GTN 750 fits into the panel from the Carenado pictures...

    It takes the place of the radio panel in the middle of the main panel.

    And yes, as always, it will slave to the NAV autopilot by clicking on GPS on the 750.

    Their 'custom' FMS is nothing more than a basic GPS.

    Snd don't forget, their XPlane versions no longer have "Thranhancements"... once they port it over that is...

    The FMS that comes with is missing much ... it's a Collins 3000.  For example PILOT/REF WPT ... to set this you're supposed to click SET POS which has the actual aircraft position lat/long coordinates and they will be placed in input area and then click PILOT/REF WPT which will take those coordinates ... neither button is functional in Carenado's FMS.  The FMS is light, very light, BUT (and this is important to me) it does support Navigraph cycle updates which the GTN 750 does not ... I'm trying to hold out from switching to the GTN 750.

    Cheers, Rob.

    It's nice to see company putting out a aircraft with a

    current NAVIGRAPH CYCLE  hopefully it has a 

    subscription for a year worth of up-dates. CARENDO

    don't do any thing slouchy,I have a couple of their 

    planes and they are built very well with great attention to detail,sound, I almost want to open the

    door and and get it if I could get that small! 

     

                                          R.D.W.

     

    P.S.I want to hand to the guys MR. CARENDO has  working for him take care of them and treat them well you have no I idea what you have .

    They do not include a current Navigraph cycle -- it is from January 2016..They also do not give away any kind of free subscription to Navigraph either...Not sure where you got this idea from since it is listed on the 4th line of the announcement above.

    Carenado is not good -- They have numerous bugs in the G1000 systems and planes that have never been addressed and they have no concern to address them.  They take your money and tell you they will fix things and never do.
