  1. Just an update for others looking to update their databases. I have the RXP 530 v2 software along with a RealSimGear GNS 530 unit. Using IFRGuy's method, I have updated to the 2014 cycle using a one-time purchase of the Jeppesen Western U.S. database. Cost me $129. Worked perfectly and shows the correct effective dates (Dec 31, 2020 - Jan 28th 2021). Thanks a million for this info!
  2. @RXP Hey Jean-Luc, I got a little confused from the thread replies whether the update was meant to try to fix the issue in the AirFoilLabs 172. I tried the new version and unfortunately, the problem still persists. Just an FYI. -Paul
  3. Hey Jean-Luc, I updated to the latest (2.4.10) and the problem is the same. Are there options I should be selecting in the settings menu to get the GPS to work? Thanks! Paul
  4. I can probably guess at the answer to this problem, but I figure I'd throw it out there on the outside chance that someone has solved this. Running AFL 172 with GNS530 v2.4.6. If I go into VLOC and manually switch VOR1 head to NAV (it won't switch on its own when switching between VLOC and GPS), I can track a VOR perfectly and the needle is spot on. However, if I pick a waypoint and go direct (or via a leg) in GPS mode, the needle stays dead centered and never moves. Most likely, AFL are using custom datarefs which walk all over the standard ones. And, as everyone pretty much knows, AFL have zero customer service so the chance of solving this via them is, well, zero. Others experiencing this with the AFL 172?
  5. Fantastic! Your product is so head and shoulders above any other GPS simulation, that having an easy and reliable source of current data would make it truly unbeatable. Thanks!
  6. Out of curiosity, have you all ever approached Garmin with the possibility of selling their data to your customers? I assume you've had to work out some licensing agreement to use their trainer. Why not offer a subscription service to their data as well? Seems like an additional revenue stream for both of you. Of course, they might not be that forward thinking... 🙂
  7. The only way I think you could do that would be to use AirManager on an iPad and create a custom panel. It works quite well.
  8. This was working... and now it is not so I'm sure it is something I did. For the life of me, I can't get the VLOC Identification Window (the window right below the VLOC Frequency Window) to show anything but Distance. Oddly, if I change to GNS 2 and turn off GNS 1, it appears fine. Thus, I'm sure it is a setting I just can't figure out how to enable/change. Thanks for any help, Paul
  9. You are correct! Works PERFECTLY! I can't thank you enough for fixing this issue. Your product has been invaluable with my IRL IFR training. Thanks again, Paul
  10. Hey Jean-Luc, Unfortunately this is still not working for me in the C172. I confirmed that the selections are all checked in the settings menu. In addition, here is my RealityXP.GNS.ini to make sure I have everything set correctly for the 530W:
  11. Fantastic! Can't wait to give it a try. Thanks so much for fixing this. Much appreciated!
  12. Ah... and since the C172 does not have an HSI and only a VOR OBS that explains why it doesn't work in the C172. Thanks for the clarification and can't wait for an update as I *love* your product. -Paul
  13. Thanks for the followup. Just to confirm, you're saying that you cannot replicate the problem in the C172 or that it works everywhere BUT the C172? Paul
