  1. Thanks! Can't believe how responsive you are. Says a lot about a person who values their work!
  2. How do I put the flight plan file into XP11? Is it a manual copy and paste into the correct directory? Where do I get the Navmap XP flight plan file from? Thank you! Can't wait to start using this.
  3. Thank you. I'm using an iMac 27, OS 11, and don't have a problem running in windowed mode. I think the two windows could run simultaneously and I could run them together real time...I think. I have a lot to learn, but the flight planning/moving map mean a lot to me! And free means a lot to my wife since I'm now retired and have to pay for a new roof (courtesy of hurricane Irma.)
  4. As a new Plane user this looks like what I've been searching for. Quick question. If I'm flying on my only screen, can I access this program on the same screen while still flying? Does it require a second screen?
  5. I'd like to know what the performance profiles are for the Turbo Charger version. I need to document the A/C profile for my flight planner, and see many numbers being used by knowledgable folks. Would anyone care to share their turbo values with me that they think are reasonable? Thanks!
  6. Great ideas! Bought the 750, installed it on the pedestal, and hit my head every time i try to look down at it. So having it as a pop up is a good idea. It seems that the only screen the GTN pop up installer gives me as an option for the pop up is the Info Screen (shift+5 or 6, can't remember exactly). Wonder why it limits me to that page?
  7. Thanks for the info Ed and Kabronicus! I'll pursue the checklist and AP issues as soon as I get the 750. I went to the Carenado site and saw no 750 pix on the pedestal. Nevertheless, if that's where it gets installed, it seems almost easier to just use the non-integrated 750 pop up. Granted you just have to click on the integrated 750 frame to get the 750 up close, but how are the general pop ups brought up (when using the 750 on AC where it isn't integrated?) Maybe I just don't understand yet how to use a non-integrated 750 pop up. I just completed a loooong VFR cross-country from Key West to Friday Harbor (in 60-90 minute flight segments…all I had time for at a sitting) and I hardly ever went to all the trouble to look at the base of the pedestal and then zoom in to try and see what it says. I just did shift+2 all the time. Clunky, but it worked. It just never stayed up when I changed views. Anyway thanks a lot gents! It'll only get to be more fun as I learn to fly this classic better!
  8. Birthdays are extra special as you get older (i.e., grateful for each one!) As a retiree I can't spend much on my flightsim hobby, but I was able to get the Shrike (my all-time favorite) for Father's Day, and I soon turn 68, so wifie offers up for a flightsim-type gift. I have been looking at the GTN 750 for some time, and wonder if someone who has integrated the 750 would kindly post some screens of how it looks in the panel. Also, am I correct that you can put the Shrike checklists into the 750? If so, how complicated would that be? Anyway, thanks in advance. Now back to rereading the many posts here about how to realistically use the unique AP...
  9. Has anyone noticed that, with Greg's TC changes, the takeoff "feels" like it is accelerating REALLY fast? I like the increased speed in the air, but may not do full throttle takeoffs. Just curious if anyone else has noticed this.
  10. Thanks for the feedback. Someday I'd like to get the 750, but that's a few allowances from now.
  11. I keep things pretty simple. I have assigned button 20 to lower the flaps one increment and button 19 to raise the flaps one increment. This way it seems easier to know where I'm at in the cycle. Wait, it just dawned on me you may not have the Saitek throttle. If all you have is the yoke, then you don't have too many buttons to spare, but if you want to use two of them, you can do the same thing.
  12. I'm new to the Shrike and am trying to learn more about the systems. I've looked on the Garmin site, YouTube, as well as the 530 doc I got with my Milviz 310R, and all of these have more info on the 530 than the Carenado info contains. So for those of you who are familiar with the 530, what level of realism should I expect to see as I learn how to use the Shrike version of the 530? Thanks
  13. Actually, it was a memory problem. I operate at a pretty high level of CPU use in FSX and when it gets too high, under certain circumstances (like using auto pilot on rare occasions) it would just skip the fuselage rendering. Hope to solve the CPU problem soon.
  14. Hey Dave, Great suggestion! Ordered a good (based on reviews, that is) powered hub from Amazon today. That can only help! Larry
