  1. The G600/500 is also coming up right after the GTN. It has been worked on at the same time the GNS and the GTN, and is mostly done. We're also working on adding a little more excitement to the Reality XP Garmin Simulation Ecosystem though, but more on this later!
  2. Hi Ryan, You might want to post this to the official Reality XP forum instead: https://www.avsim.com/forums/forum/767-the-realityxp-support-forum/
  3. I thank you for your long time support, and indeed, there are exciting products coming up next, starting with the Reality XP GTN 750/650 Touch very very soon!
  4. Hi Les, is this error code displayed when: 1) running the e-commerce installer? 2) running the Reality XP GNS V2 software installer? 3) running the Garmin Trainer installer?
  5. Hi, I think this is normal and should be documented in the Garmin User's Manual? Basically, it is the GTN pre-loading the next possible step, that is missed approach, so that you just have to touch the screen to proceed.
  6. Hi, I'm pleased to announce v2.3.2 Release Candidate is now available! This update includes: Stability and performance enhancements Corrects A/P issue related to the NAV/GPS switch not working with CDI mode with some aircraft. Corrects all known issues to date. Other changes included in previously available v2.3.1 RC: Assistant not always decoding the correct gauge X,Y,W,H (position + dimension) in the panel.cfg file. Installer reporting XML/Variant related error: we've worked on a more robust XML config tool which should prove to handle installation correctly. Support for legacy GNS exported variable, which should help transitioning until aircraft vendors catch up with GNS V2. Support for more default GPS commands, especially for the left knobs (push/inner/outer). Added a fix for the floating point error reported when the sys_nand file has been corrupted (cdp_mfd.dll error). Corrected A/P loosing ALT mode when arming APPR mode when flying with GNS vertical guidance. Please make sure to post your feedback for this version in this thread only. Once we get enough feedback, this will become an official release through "Check Updates..." Download link for both e-commerce installers
  7. Thank you for the details Nick, and as you said, everything is fine on our test systems. Mind you, these tests are done on bare minimum installations with no other add-ons, default scenery. In other words, the only code running are the simulator and ours. Nevertheless, we'll review this more and keep you posted. At this stage, I don't have any conclusion yet. Thank you for your enduring patience with this!
  8. So this most likely is FSX-SE specific, and this might take quite a little longer to debunk. In the meantime, if you have the chance to compare with P3D4 just let me know. This will help confirm or not what the issue might be in the end.
  9. What about searching for "GTN trainer" in the store, within iTunes? Otherwise, iTunes might be filtering out apps if you don't have an iPad/iPhone/iPod registered? Nevertheless, it might in the end be easier for you to find a friend with an iTunes allowing this download, than finding the older GTN trainer for pc which is not available online anymore!
  10. Hi, Unfortunately not yet. As a matter of fact, a significant number of customers where 'lost' with this system the first time they used the GNS. Nevertheless, we might reintegrate this as an alternate control system in a future update. But first, we need to release our GTN and our G600/500!
  11. Hans, have you had a chance to try the latest 2.4.7?
  12. Thank you, this helps clearing things a bit up. First, when installed 'manually', can you detail what you have exactly done step by step? Please note in P3D4 and P3D3, nothing gets installed but a "add-on.xml" created in the "My Documents\Prepar3d v# Add-ons\Reality XP GNS" folder. I've given a verbatim copy of the content of this file in this thread, suitable for a default installation of the Reality XP GNS V2 where its files gets installed in "C:\Program Files (x86)" Second, there is no 'magical' way to make the gauge appear in your aircraft because you wish to. The gauge appear in your aircraft because you have configured it to. This can be done usually either using a 3rd party vendor aircraft preset (might be shipped with the aircraft, might be downloaded from forums), or by editing the aircraft "panel.cfg" file. I don't recommend you start manually editing the panel.cfg file for now, and you don't need to. Just go to your Flight Sim "add-ons" menu, and select the Reality XP GNS 2 assistant. It will guide you through as explained in the User's Manual. "I had expected that when clicking on a GNS 430 a window opens, in order to make inputs easy (which works)." Can you please explain what do you mean by "which works"? Can you please also try the v2.3.2 just released yesterday instead: Last but not least: do you use an anti-virus? Which one? Can you try disabling it and compare?
  13. I've downloaded it a while back, using a Mac. Never tried on Windows though. when clicking the link, I realize I don't find a "view in iTunes" link. Instead, clicking the 'view other apps from' gives this page: https://itunes.apple.com/us/developer/garmin-dci/id309920282 where you can click the 'view in iTunes' to open iTunes (Mac at least) to the app page.
  14. Thank you for the additional info Nick. I'm starting to wonder if we've overlooked something which would be FSX-SE specific in this case. May I suggest you try something on your end (which will be quick) the time for us to do deeper tests specifically with FSX-SE (which will be longer). - in the C172, you can see the DME showing data from the GPS too (it is overridden along the 'NAV' vars). Instead of testing with the needles, compare what the DME says. This way, if the DME agrees and the needles disagree (to the override status), it will pinpoint the issue specifically to the set of variables for the needles. - try the same but with the default FSX-SE C208B which uses XML VOR gauges. - if you have access to, try with P3D3 or P3D4. No need for screenshots at this point, the ones you have provided seem to illustrate properly.
  15. @Bert Pieke thank you the additional information! @Nick M but once downloaded with iTunes, you can grab the .ipa and proceed without even installing it on a device.
  16. The RXP GNS 530W/430W V2 is compatible with some of the database files included in the GTN Trainer: - The Aviation database: worldwide.bin for the GNS 006-d0170-00.bin for the GTN (v6.1.1 for example) - The Base map: bmap.bin for both trainers Should you want to try other database files, we suggest you first make a backup of the existing files. Then you can either choose to overwrite the files, which you can restore with the backup later if needed. Otherwise, you can configure the GNS to use a different DB folder (documented in the user's manual). Disclaimer: the technical information in this post does not grant you any other right than Garmin's Trainer EULA. Please make sure you comply to the EULA prior attempting this.
  17. You might want to explore this solution then to get a worldwide database, cycle 1607 expired 21JUL16. - download the GTN 6.0.3 for iPad: https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/garmin-gtn-trainer/id479670018?mt=8 - rename .ipa to .zip and unzip - in the "Payload\GTN.app\" folder, locate "avtn_db.bin" (this is the worldwide database file) - copy this file to your GNS database folder, as "worldwide.bin" (or use the environment var described in the User's Manual) NB: you might want to explore the other files, such as "bmap.bin", "safetaxi.bin", "standard.odb", "terrain.odb", "trn.dat". I've not tested them specifically though.

  19. Hi Nick, v2.3.2 includes the fix for the VOR. To help find out what is happening, here is a recap of the GNS V2 override logic: - with CDI mode in GPS (regardless of FS NAV/GPS switch) - with "Connect GPS to VOR indicator" enabled, - using either "Radios" set (1 or 2) or "VLOC Source" set (1 or 2) for VOR1/2 respectively - if it is the only GNS2, or the "GPS Master" when two GNS2 are "linked" to the same source (i.e. when 2 GNS2 are set to the same "Radios" set or the same "VLOC Source". - then it overrides the "NAV" (1 or 2) variables. Because you can't be sure what any third party aircraft VOR is really doing/reading, you may cross check it is working properly in using a default VOR1 and default VOR2 in a default aircraft, or with a XML var logger gauge and looking at NAV XXXX:1 and NAX XXXX:2 vars. Also, please cross check the installer really installed the updated gauge file. You find the version in the first line of "My Documents\rxpGNS2.gau.log"

  21. Hi Tom, this probably is the last issue remaining, and this doesn't seem widespread at all, so you are probably right it might be related to the AMD driver, or your system to some extent. What I still don't get is that when powering off, this latest version repaints the screen once more in black?!? There might still be a bug in our code which we haven't debunked yet somehow though, and I'm sure we'll get to the bottom of this at one point. It is just hard to find because we can't repro at all.
  22. rxpGNS2-430-FSIM.exe and rxpGNS2-530-FSIM.exe These are the ecommerce installer of our products. When run they require your purchase info, or key (reinstall) to continue, then they unwrap our software installer which runs and installs our software. your post says you double click these above, and after ½ secs nothing else happened. The issue then is the ecommerce installer not launching, and this issue is with our ecommerce partner wrapper which seems not running on your system. Does this wrap up the issue correctly?
  23. Thank you for the details otherwise it would have been leading us both to a wrong direction. Unfortunately the issue is not Reality XP related but e-commerce wrapper related. (The .exe you are trying to run is the commerce wrapped installer). you might want to first ensure what is preventing the e-commerce exe to run directly via our e-commerce partner.
  24. I've just posted the links to the 2.3.2 release candidate. You might want to try these out instead now. Besides, can you please cross check the status of this aircraft files? "Pilatus PC-9/A (T) - IRIS 'Evolution' Display Team panel" The name displayed is the name as seen by FS in the aircraft.cfg file. You might want to check this entry in the aircraft.cfg file has a panel= which is either empty (the default 'Panel\panel.cfg') or specific. Then, following the trail, it there a panel.cfg file to this location? Finally, can you try opening a popup window when in this aircraft (say SHIFT+2, +3, +4) and try the "Configure Aircraft..." menu again?
  25. Hi, you might want to re-post your question in the official Reality XP GTN 750/650 Touch forum here: https://www.avsim.com/forums/forum/772-rxp-gtn-750650-touch/
