    Soarfly

    I was recently in contact with the developer, and the product was listed as "out of stock" because the installer needed to be fixed to include the FS2004 files. Hopefully that is now rectified.

    New FS9 Scenery

    Nice find Greg. I was wondering what BDOaviation was up to - it has been a long time since their last release.

    GNS430/530 startup map options

    David, Thanks for the tip. That was the solution, so obvious I did not think of it! I did not realise that this setting was saved between sessions. I must have changed it several weeks ago and then forgotten about it. Graeme
  4. I am using the latest version of the GNS2 units in FS9 (v2.4). I am not sure if this is a bug or operator error, but what is the default information displayed when the unit first starts up? I seem to recollect that it included airports, roads, etc, but for the the last few months the screen always starts with just a bare map (ie; black land and blue water displayed). The only time that any information appears is after I enter a flight plan. Is this correct? I have tried using the 'Map Setup' menus, but it tells me that all the elements (land data, aviation data, etc) are ON. But when I exit the menu back to the main screen, the map is still empty. I do not know how to add image attachments (used to be easy years ago), which might make it easier to see what I am trying to describe. Thanks for any suggestions, Graeme

    New FS9 Scenery

    Thanks Greg, the problem was with my AI traffic, so I reinstalled a bunch of WOAI packages, and the Dash8's are back! No idea how that happened..(aren't computers wonderful?) Graeme

    New FS9 Scenery

    Thanks for the heads up Greg. I have purchased and installed the scenery. It looks very good, but I have no airline AI traffic at the terminal gates (only a couple of Cesnna 185s!). I thought it would be packed with Dash-8s? Can you confirm this, or is my system to blame?

    SANTA meets RXP

    Also wanted to add my thanks - I purchased all your Flight Sim gauges as a Christmas present to myself!! Great stuff. All the best for 2018. Graeme

    Default gauge dimensions

    Thank you very much!

    Default gauge dimensions

    I have enjoyed in the past manually retrofitting RXP gauges into my various panels. With the newer GNS and GTN gauges, I have not been able to find any reference to the actual gauge resolution. In the older GNS WAAS package, this information was in the Service Manual. I have used the panel configuration tool to install some popup windows, then note the sizes (eg: 159 x 152 for GTN750). This gives me the relevant proportions, but not the actual resolution of the gauges. It would be useful for me to have all the information noted down somewhere.
  10. I have just purchased the GTN750, but am having a problem with the installation. After the initial setup screens I am getting a dialog box with "GARMIN" on the top right corner, and the message "Acquiring Trainer Launcher", and a progress bar that has not moved in two hours. I assume this a problem with downloading from the Garmin website and may be out of RealityXP control, but is there another way to directly download this software? I am running on Windows 7.1 64bit. EDIT: The download finally completed, but it was very slow!

    RXP GNS2-430 no power

    Thanks for the reply. I tried the flight sim a few hours later, and the gauge is now working! I think my antivirus program (NOD32) had 'quarentined' some files during installation, which I discovered and re-instated. Perhaps that was causing the problem?

    RXP GNS2-430 no power

    I have just purchased the GNS2-430 to try out in my FS2004 installation (I have all the old legacy RXP gauges). The installation proceeded without incident, and I did a test install via the Configuration utility for a pop-up window of the GNS430 in the default Cessna. The unit appears but it has no power - the main screen is black. The power button does not appear to work. I then exited FS9 and found the Garmin trainer (C:\Program Files (x86)\Garmin\GNS Trainer\GNS) and launched the G530SIM.EXE file. Again, the software works, but the trainer unit is not powering on. I hope someone can help or this will be a disappointing Christmas gift to myself! Graeme

    GTN750/650 fs2004

    Okay - thank for the reply. I will consider purchasing...

    GTN750/650 fs2004

    Just wondering if anyone has installed these gauges in FS2004? I understand from the website that they are compatible with FS9.1, but can anyone report if they work successfully? Thanks, Graeme

    Landing/Taxi light switch not working

    I think I have solved the problem. It was Shockwave lights - I re-ran the SW utility and all now seems to work fine. Phew!
