    GNS430 Addition (resolved)

    Not sure why but by specifically assigning the 430_2 to the COM/NAV 2 it fixed my frequency swap issue.
  2. I purchased the GNS530 about a month ago. It has been working great. I just purchased the GNS430 and now I am having a problem. Most functions work on the 430/530 however when I press the NAV frequency swap it seems to be fighting the change. Sometimes it swaps frequencies ok. Other times I have to press the button several times to get it to lock in. See below for link to video of this issue: Any suggestions on how to resolve this? Thanks, Greg

    GNS430 Addition (resolved)

    Ok, I got this resolved. Apparently in the default 430_2 ini configuration the COM and NAV is set to AUTO. This does not work. Since the 430 is the second GPS in the aircraft I manually changed the COM and NAV to 2. See below in BOLD: [GNS_430_2] ; comma separated list of render targets. drawto = WINDOW, Garmin_430_screen ; is the master device if true.

    GNS430 Addition (resolved)

    Ok, Before I installed the 430 I backed up my XPlane11 folder. I just restored my XPlane11 folder (only the 530 is installed) and started X Plane. I tested the 530 GPS and all works again!. I closed X Plane and ran the 'rxpGNS2-XPL-Setup.exe' application to install the 430 GPS. The installer finished and I started X Plane. With no changes to any ini files and the 430 not selected in the PlugIn the 530 NAV swap button is buggy again. I also just noticed that after pressing the 530 COM swap a few times both the Active and Standby frequencies are the same??. I verified the 430 in the plugin is turned off and the default simulator 430 is displayed in the 3D panel. How do I figure out what is causing this issue? Thanks, Greg
