  1. Thanks for the replies. I uninstalled p3d v5.2 and reinstalled v 5.1 and the problem has gone away, so it does appear to be a p3d issue. Will talk to Propwash.
  2. I downloaded and installed the p3d 5.2 update shortly before the Realityxp update and it was working ok after the 5.2 install. at least I think it was. I could be wrong about this. Do you think I should go back to the p3d 5.1 and see if it works?
  3. A problem has come up with my Propwash PWS530 device since I installed the latest update for Realityxp. Is is possible to revert to an earlier version? The problem is that the buttons/dials on the Propwash do not activate the 530 when the screen is moved to the device (device screen remains static) but the device buttons/dials do control the 530 when the screen is moved to the pc. Hope this makes sense. Using P3D V5.2. Thanks for any help. Martin
  4. Good morning forum. I have my hat switch set up using the black.red settings and it works fine in all aircraft except the 737ngx. In this aircraft the view scrolls too quickly and it is difficult to set it in one spot. Is there an adjustment for this? Using P3D V5.1 Thanks. Martin
  5. Bert, thank you very much. I have been struggling with this for a couple of days and now it seem fine. Martin
  6. Thanks for the reply. I checked and did not have the latest GNS version installed, but I do now and the aircraft is still doing the same thing. I did not mention earlier that even when I input "Direct To" different waypoints it doesn't change the 360/0 heading.
  7. When a flightplan is loaded and activated, autopilot is activated, the aircraft will follow an input compass heading but when Nav is activated it changes direction to 360 degrees no matter what the flightplan waypoint heading is in the flightplan. P3D v5.1, windows 10 and the aircraft is Aerosoft's Twin Otter Extended. I have tried different settings in configuration, the instrument GPS is activated, the on-board instrument is blank. The most recent update (received today) is installed. I obviously have an incorrect setting somewhere but can't locate it. I have uninstalled and reinstalled Realityxp. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thank you. Martin
  8. Working now. Thanks to both responses for assistance.
  9. I manually input a flightplan into my Reality XP GNS 530 and select activate. The plan shows in the 530 but the aircraft does not respond to it. The GPS button is activated. Am using P3D 5.1 and the aircraft is the Aerosoft Twin Otter extended. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Martin
  10. Thanks for the reply. I don't quite know what you mean by "pointing to". I still have V4.5 on my system, but in V5 Chaseplane won't even install. I looks like it installs but disappears when I start the sim. A couple of times a message has appears that Chaseplane is not yet compatible with V5 and please be patient. I tried to submit a ticket at Parallet 42 but the site will not let me register. Martin
  11. I am trying to get Chaseplane to work wiith P3D V5. The ORBX site says that Chaseplane is compatible with V5 but I can't get it to work. There are some entries in the forum that suggest some have it working in V5. Any suggestion as to get this working would be appreciated. Martin.
  12. I don't see any reduction in frame rates. However, I have the device running off my pc onboard video card because my main video card will only run 4 monitors, and I need 5 with the PWS 530. I don't know if this makes a difference or not.
  13. In case anyone is interested in the Propwash product (link is in my first post on this topic) I purchased the Propwash PWS530 and have now used it for several flights. There were a couple of issues getting it up and running, mainly due to my multiple monitor setup. When I first realized there was a problem I sent off an email to the Propwash website and got a reply very quickly from Kyle at Propwash, even tho he was travelling at the time. Kyle was very helpful in solving my issues. The device is now built into my panel. The buttons and dials work as expected and I am finding it much more precise and realistic than using the mouse to input flight plans, radio frequencies etc. Also, it does not take up space on my main monitors. In am happy with the product. Martin
  14. I know this thread is a bit old, but is there a way to update the navdata in the 530? I sent an email to Garmin and was pleased to get a reply, but was just advised to contact Realityxp. I am frequently looking for waypoints that the 530 does not have in its database. I would pay for uupdated navdata. Thanks. Martin
  15. One further update - after rebooting my system and loading the aircraft with the gps I see that I was not using the legacy mouse settings after all. I am now and it is better, so thanks again for this suggestion. Martin
