  1. Jean-Luc: I have found it impossible, after updating my ageing simulator operating system with Windows 7 64 bit, to reestablish a connection between Elite's GNS430 hardware module with Version 2 of your GNS430 software. The former connection resulted in one of the most useful features on my simulator. I was using XP, and your original version of GNS430, linked to MSFSX via the Elite USB plug-in. Now, with 7 64 bit, your version 2, and MSFSX Steam edition, as well as the Elite USB plug-in installed and working with all other hardware, there seems to be no obvious way to create the link in spite of banging away on Elite Config settings as I always did. Am I out of luck? Elite has no solution at this time. Thanks in advance! JHH

    Garmin GNS430/530 - exciting news!

    Question for Ed Wilson: Is it possible at this time to interface my USB Garmin 430W module from Elite with your Grmin 430-530 onscreen display? I could find nothing on Elite's website that hints at that capability or the availability of a patch or utility from them to integrate your product with theirs. I am running Elite v8.6 with all the updates on a Windows XP machine. My flight controls are all Elite serial port, with the exception of the Garmin 430W model which is USB. It all works well with FSX, and everything works just fine with Prepar3d version 1, with the exception of the Garmin 430W module. On a related topic, aside from SIDs and STARs, is the rest of the database in your product the same as FSX (Garmin's trainer?) or is it ALL NAVSTAR data? Thanks in advaance! Jim Hand
