  1. For those of you who would consider buying even the cheapest Garmin navdata subscription, it is locked the serial number of a real world GTN unit. Don't have the real GTN? Well, too bad.
  2. Mike is the Moderator and that thread is locked. Anyway, IMO usually these minor P3d releases take about a week for VRS to release an update. Going from P3d3 to P3d4 was obviously a much bigger hurdle, but my experience with VRS is that they are extremely careful and that the number of bugs is generally minimal to non-existent. Hence they don't just jump at an update and then see how many users yell.
  3. VRS said "a couple of days" at the most unless LM made a major change to P3d between the two versions.
  4. That's good to hear. The Settings button should be grayed out. There are no settable options for the built-in Voice Recognition. Previous versions of Windows did have some options available to the user, but Win 10 does not. At least I 've never seen a Win 10 system that did.
  5. Carl, Settings should be grayed out for the default Windows voice recognition. In that same window ("Speech Properties") try the Configure Microphone button and see what happens. That specific Windows error message often results from the microphone not being properly connected and/or configured. Jay
  6. Not flight simulator related but LM is expanding its research and development facility in Orlando again: https://www.washingtonpost.com/amphtml/news/business/wp/2018/02/14/lockheed-martin-to-build-new-facility-in-florida-hire-1800/ The P3d staff should have a lot more company.
  7. nVidia has suddenly become the master at fooling outsiders as to release dates and specs. In the past, by now, someone in the Far East would have gotten their hands on an engineering sample of the next gen card. Bitcoin mining must be so lucrative for both miners and nVIdia that they've kept this series under wraps. We don't even know yet if it's called Volta, Turing or Ampere. Or maybe all three.
  8. That's interesting. I only see aircraft used in my AI flight plans.
  9. True. The freeware is a subset of fsaerodata and consists of revised NDBs, VORs, ILS and some waypoint updates. fsaerodata adds SIDs, STARs, other instrument approaches and comms.
  10. https://www.bloomberg.com/amp/news/articles/2018-02-12/airbus-says-one-third-of-pratt-powered-a320neo-jets-are-faulty
  11. It works fine in 4.2.
  12. Yeah, either ~$24 for one year or ~$10 for 3 months is a pretty hefty price to pay for all this.
  13. Duh... Elaine you're supposed to save me from my own stupidity! It's the "old" ORBX libs issue when installing the new P3d content. http://prepar3d.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=6322&t=126987
  14. My delay is about 15-20 seconds but that may be a system-related difference.
  15. Isn't that the industry norm now? AIRACs change less than monthly. Do you expect everyone writing flight sim software to provide that service for free?
