    GTN 750/650 and GNS 430/530

    It's not a bad idea. But the GTN series touch screens are very user friendly, especially when the plane is bumping around. Thanks for the suggestion, it makes good sense.

    GTN 750/650 and GNS 430/530

    Thanks, Frank. I wasn't clear. In fact I misinformed you - apologies. The GTN750/650 is the F1 product. The GNS 530 is the old RealityXP product. I get an error message that these are from different companies and cannot be run at the same time. So, I wish to uninstall the old RealityXP gauge without messing up the panel! I wasn't able to find a setup screen using shift + right click on the top of the bezels. So, I went back to the GTN configuration routine and changed the 750 from _1 to _2. It made no difference - I still got the error message when I selected the aircraft. Perhaps the easiest thing would be to start all over again with the base download of the aircraft and install only the F1 product.
  3. I run FSX Acceleration in W7 x64. Getting back to flying after a longish absence. My Real Air Beechcraft Duke has both the RXP GTN 750/650 and the GNS 530 installed. When I load the aircraft I get a message to the effect I can't run them both. The GNS 530 is integrated into the panel and looks neat. The GTN 750 is on the stack and a PopUp. How best to uninstall the GNS 530 without messing up the panel? Thanks!
  4. Alex, sorry to come back again but I still cannot connect. The network is fine now, I can see the server. I run LNM on the client and the map/route shows up. When I run LNC it just shows that it is waiting for a connection and then times out. I've tried changing the port to the one on the LNM splash screen but it makes no difference. Help!! John
  5. I use wired. That's the odd thing. What drivers do you mean?
  6. Thanks Alex. It's a network problem. For some reason, best known to Microsoft, the connection dropped. I didn't realise it until I'd pulled out all my remaining hair. 🙁

    Turn and slip indicator

    There is a sort of slip indicator top left on the panel. Mine doesn't work! Is there a replacement (Reality etc) or am I stuck with it? Thanks for any ideas! John
  8. Alex, Apologies to return to this but I am confused. I had LNM running well in the network with FSX. Then I installed OpusFSI_v5. I am using it also on the network from a different client laptop. It is working. The problem now is that LNM on the first client will not connect anymore! Worse still, the more I read the more confused I get. Am I right with this? LNM installed on FSX PC and run it: LNM on client and run LittleNAvConnect. I am not sure what is supposed to happen to the main LNM program on the server when I do this. Anyways, I cannot make the connection. John
  9. Thanks, Alex, but why did I not think of this myself?
  10. I run FSX Acceleration on the server and LNM on a client. It all works perfectly. I subscribe to Navigraph and I can see that it provides 'manual' updates for LNM. However, I can't find a way of installing these on the client. The current Navigraph data are 19.03 but LNM is running 18.10 on my client. A search of LNM online Contents and FAQ did not find 'Navigraph' or 'navigraph'. I'd be grateful for advice. Thanks!
  11. I've not noticed it. It's not important - I just thought it was a curiosity.
  12. My computer language is English and my locale settings are all English. I have Hungarian and German languages as alternate keyboard settings only. This gives me the umlaut and other accents of which there are a multitude in Hungarian. The odd thing about your 'Last Change' entry is that not only is the language Hungarian, but the format uses the Hungarian date format i.e. 2019.február.20 - backwards from the English like a lot of things in Hungarian. Nothing else that I have come across in LNM is in Hungarian! How strange!
  13. Ah, yes, I found it. I didn't think to look under Navaids. Thank you! I continue to be amazed. Just a small observation: is there any particular reason why the 'Last Change' date appears in Hungarian? Ő magyar? John
