  1. Well it seems this is a bug in the trainer not taking care to test before dividing by 0... Try shutting down the engines (fuel flow = 0) while having power on the GTN (try always on) and I'm pretty sure this will crash. I've a couple ideas to workaround this.
  2. Hi Pavel and thank you for the detailed information! This is most appreciated! I can see from the RXP log files you are not using the latest GTN which is v2.5.7. You might want to use the latest: Otherwise, we'll see if the error reported is new or solved in 2.5.7 and let you know.

    Mixing GNS and GTN

    Yes, these are different products entirely. Looking at your e-commerce receipts will tell you if this is the GNS V2 or not: GNS V2 product name is: RealityXP Garmin GNS 530 (XPlane) (product id: RXP-GNS530-XP) legacy is: Reality XP Garmin GNS 530 WAAS X-Plane 9 (product id: RXP-GNS530-X9) Just make sure you do not mix and match the two: you might have purchase both the legacy a long time ago, and the GNS V2 more recently, and you've just not installed the GNS V2 in XP10 but the legacy instead? I wouldn't want you to purchase the product twice.

    Mixing GNS and GTN

    Your listing seems to show our legacy GNS isn't it? Should you have installed the GNS V2 on XP10, there should have been a "rxpGNS" folder there, with a "32" and "64" subfolders. Unfortunately, the legacy gns product is not designed nor working with XP11.

    Hopefully, the RXP GTN using the latest trainer v6.50 makes you fly with cycle 1803!
  7. Thank you, this makes it easier! So what is happening, is a Windows system component (KERNELBASE.dll) is failing due to an invalid floating point exception. I don't have any idea what on your system could cause this, it could be many, from anti-virus, to 'system tools' running in the background, or drivers (audi/video mostly). I can't help but noticing these though: Dumping info for module C:\Program Files\Alienware\AWSoundCenter\UserInterface\AWSoundCenterDevProps.dll Dumping info for module C:\Program Files\Alienware\AWSoundCenter\UserInterface\AWSoundCenterOSD.dll This means you are running an audio-related software, most likely to offer on-screen-display, which gets injected in every single process/application you run. You might want to explore this avenue and find if you could disable this.

    LPV not activated

    Here are some advisories found: https://www.garmin.com/en-US/aviationalerts/service-advisory-1029-rev-d-egnos-activation/ The combination of the EGNOS SoL broadcast and the database-enabled EGNOS capability facilitates the use of the EGNOS satellites in the navigation solution. The use of EGNOS will be transparent to the flight crew. Depending on certain criteria and available data in the navigation database, LNAV approaches augmented by EGNOS may provide advisory vertical guidance, which is indicated on the display as LNAV+V. https://www.garmin.com/en-US/aviationalerts/service-advisory-1372-rev-b-unavailable-rnav-gps-approaches-due-to-lack-of-vda/ A limited number of RNAV (GPS) approaches, including all service levels, are unavailable for selection when the approach includes LP minima and also has no published vertical descent angle (VDA). This issue is resolved in the following software versions: GNS 400W/500W Series main software versions 5.10 and later GTN 6xx/7xx Series main software versions 5.13 and later unrelated: DBs are growing in size so we'll be loosing more and more airports unless using regionalized DBs: https://www.garmin.com/en-US/aviationalerts/service-advisory-1846-worldwide-navigation-database/

    LPV not activated

    I think I'm starting to get the "why", please correct me if I'm wrong. Looking at the LFLA RWY18 GNSS and it mentions the 'EGNOS' channel used (Ch 41134). However, the GNS only has WAAS (at least software 3.30). When trying a synthetic test on the trainer, anytime I make the LFLA RWY36 active, it disables 3D DIFF and reverts to 3D only in the satellite view page. As far as I remember, there was a software update on the GTN recently (yes GTN) which mentioned something along the lines of not disabling GNSS approaches. As far as I know, the aviation DB includes 'feature' bits which disable specific approaches based on equipment, and reviewing the trainer bowels I think this is what is happening in the GNS. Does this makes sense to you?

  11. Hi, I'd guess you've got this content from: "C:\ProgramData\Garmin\Trainers\GTN\crshrprts\gtn1\Logs" Can you please go one folder up, locate another folder which name is a typical GUID, typically: "C:\ProgramData\Garmin\Trainers\GTN\crshrprts\gtn1\70bbec66-b3bd-4975-9162-df462e18eb9f" In this folder, you'll find a file: crashrpt.xml which content is most needed!

    Mixing GNS and GTN

    Hi Timothy, Both GNS V2 and GTN are compatible with XP11, XP10 and XP9. You just have to run the GNS V2 installer and select any or all of these simulators to install for these respectively. Otherwise, if already installer for XP10 and XP11 is the same computer, you just need to manually copy the rxpGNS plugin folder from XP10 to XP11.

    Hi, Just as a reminder, RNAV GPS approach horizontal and vertical steering data are calculated in the receiver based on the aircraft and runway 4-dimensional location estimates. If the calculated z axis accuracy is reduced, generally due to GDOP, the receiver is required to step down from providing vertical guidance. In that case it could annunciate LNAV instead of LPV at the FAF inbound. When you say if "sees" RNAV approaches, can you please explain further "where" do you see this? Is this on the annunciator? Is this switching from LPV to LNAV at about the FAF? When it does, can you please go to the satellite page and check the VFOM (it should be below ~30ft)?
  16. @tylenolwithwings This most likely is something only related to some sort of 'race' condition during initialization of both the aircraft and the GTN. Can you give a try to the latest GTN v2.5.7 released a couple days ago?
  17. Whenever you reinstall using the installer previously downloaded to your hard drive, the installer 'check update' tells whether the installer is the latest version. Saves you from downloading from our website each time, or, saves you from wondering if there is a new version or not prior reinstalling. On the other hand, the 'check update' in-sim tells whether the installed/running version is the latest. Anyhow thank you for your feedback. Next update will have a different wording: "Check installer version (the installer will check for updates)" Otherwise I'm open to suggestions!
  18. Hi, I would have appreciated a translation! I don't know what the issue is on your system, but it seems it just means Windows is not capable of creating a desktop shortcut to the User's Manual PDF file. The reasons could be somehow the source file is not accessible (not installed, locked up ?!?), or your user account desktop folder is not accessible either. The path to the user's manual is: "C:\Program Files (x86)\Reality XP\GTN Simulation\X-Plane\Reality XP GTN User's Manual (XPlane).pdf"
  19. Hi, I'm pleased to announce v2.5.7 is now released! It is available either via Plugin | Reality XP GTN | Check Updates... or directly from our web site. v2.5.7: New: Aircraft Flight Manual Supplement (AFMS) related settings. New: Mark On Target discrete command (AFMS). New: HSI CDI/GSI scaling factor (as in FltSim version). Enhanced: Transponder VFR code presets (US/EUR or user VFRcode). Enhanced: Additional power sources setting (electric buses 1 to 6). Enhanced: Further stability and performance enhancements. Enhanced: User's Manual corrections. Fixed: GTN Settings Panel could CTD on some computers. AFMS settings: The GTN supports specific enablement features configured during installation in a real aircraft. These are regrouped in the configuration panel under Aircraft Flight Manual Supplement (AFMS) and allow changing between VNAV and VCALC modes (GTN Trainer v6.50+), selecting V-Flag Declutter, disabling CDI key etc... v2.5.6: Enhanced: Further support for the latest GTN Trainer v6.50. v2.5.5: Settings: Choose new Garmin / Jeppesen Aviation Databases for Rotorcraft (trainer v6.50). Enhanced: Further support for the latest GTN Trainer v6.50. Enhanced: Rendering at small screen size, further refinements from previous version. Enhanced: User's Manual updated with correct references to new trainer v6.50 paths. Enhanced: Validated Compatibility with GTN trainers v6.21, v6.41. Enhanced: Added 2 new 'WAAS' failure datarefs. Enhanced: Further stability and performance enhancements. v2.5.4: New: Added support for the latest GTN Trainer v6.50. New: With Garmin / Jeppesen Aviation, Obstacles and Safetaxi® Databases cycle 1803. Enhanced: Rendering at small screen size. Enhanced: Further stability and performance enhancements. NB: this release focus is primarily GTN Trainer v6.50 compatibility. It may break compatibility with previous trainers (6.41 and 6.21) and we'll make sure to review all code changes for these in a future update. v2.5.3: Enhanced: Internal corrections to prevent the boot screens from freezing when TCAD is active. Enhanced: Plugin graphics and renderer corrections. Enhanced: Further stability and performance enhancements. v2.5.2.1: Fixed: Mouse not working in 3D and VR in previous update. v2.5.2: New: Settings | Gauge | Advanced | Link Simulator GPS Waypoints (updates XPlane GPS/FMS with next legs for EFIS display) New: Settings | Gauge | Advanced | Auto-Save Active Route (.fms) (saves the active route to fms format) Fixed: VR Windows general handling. Enhanced: VR Windows display like 2D windows (no title, no edges). Enhanced: Plugin menu updates properly in VR mode. Enhanced: Knobs turn more naturally with left/right mouse buttons. Enhanced: Gauge Tooltips corrections. Enhanced: User's Manual corrections and additional information. Enhanced: Further stability and performance enhancements. The GTN inherits two new features first introduced in our FltSim version: Link Simulator GPS Waypoints: continuously updates the stock GPS/FMS route with the next waypoints (requires Master Device). This feature is designed to displaying GTN route on EFIS displays. XPlane limitations: user waypoint ident or waypoint not in the XP database display as encoded lat_lon format. Auto-Save Active Route: save the active route to "X-Plane\Output\FMS plans\Reality XP GTN1 Route.fms" (and GTN2 for unit 2). This is a v11 or v3 compliant fms file (depending on your XP version) with the entire active route (not just the next waypoints). The device saves the route whenever it changes so that the file contains the latest used. This update also fixes the VR window handling issues encountered with our first VR version (2.5.1). v2.5.1: New: Supports X-Plane 11.20 VR mode. New: Added support to fail RAIM Check via datarefs. New: Added discrete inputs datarefs. Fixed: GTN overrides A/P and HSI when loaded with some aircraft (no reload needed). Enhanced: TAWS auto-detected limits are properly saved in the ini file. Enhanced: User's Manual corrections and additional information. Enhanced: Further stability and performance enhancements. X-Plane 11.20 VR: XPlane has known limitations which you should know: resizing the window with 2 green bars changes the definition, not the size (makes the graphics pixelated), therefore, resize the GTN window 1 green bar at a time instead. Also, XPlane SDK permits restoring the window size only and not its position. A/P and HSI override: This should fix the issue with some aircraft (Carenado, etc...) where the GTN was not able to connect to the A/P and the HSI when initially loaded, and for which the interim fix was to unselect then reselect the GTN from the menu. v2.5: New: LinkObs connects GPS to OBS source, either HSI (with LinkHsi) or VOR (AutoNavSource). New: Autopilot coupling and tracking compatible with host simulator simulation rate (up to 128x). Fixed: missing LPV procedures bug introduced in previous version. v2.4.16: New: Popup Windows compatible with the latest XP11.20+ VR. New: SHIFT+RIGHT Click the GPS top edge opens the GUI Settings (like FltSim version). New: SHIFT+LEFT Click the GPS top edge resizes the popup window (like FltSim version). New: Added 'Master Device' setting to the GUI Settings (like FltSim version). Fixed: GPS Master Device state not saved to the settings file (take 2). Enhanced: User's Manual renamed to: "Reality XP GTN User's Manual (XPlane).pdf". Enhanced: Installer cleans up older manual and shortcuts left from previous installations. Enhanced: User's Manual corrections and additional information. Enhanced: Further stability and performance enhancements. About LinkObs: With the previous versions, the option used to only connect the HSI OBS to the GPS. New in v2.5, when using the LinkObs option, the OBS source is either the HSI OBS when the GPS device is connected to the HSI (LinkHsi option), or the VOR1/2 OBS when the GPS device is connected to the VOR (in this case VOR1 or VOR2 depends on the AutoNavSource setting).

    Hi, searching the forum leads to:
  21. Hi Chris, The 2D window is controlled by FltSim and there is no SDK way to 'constrain' aspect ratio while resizing unless it is a FltSim window management feature. FltSim doesn't 'save' the window positions either it appears. However, our GTN (and our GNS V2) offer a convenient 1:2 <-> 1:1 size toggle documented p5 of the User's Manual under the title "Resizing The Gauge Window". NB: our X-Plane version benefits from the simulator window management features and allow resizing with constant aspect ratio (or override while depressing the SHIFT key and resizing), keep the GTN updating while resizing and it also saves the last window size/position between sessions!

    Or maybe I was just looking at the already updated manuals on our systems?! Either ways, v2.5.7 update includes updated manuals for sure, so are the links to the manuals on our website. Thank you four your feedback.
  23. Hi Brian, This looks like the GTN trainer is failing at some point during its boot sequence. This usually has something to do with a couple DB files, the sound driver, or a bogus setting in the nonvol file. We've released v2.5.7 yesterday with a number of internal changes not listed in the release notes to better cope with start/stop processing. This might just solve the issue you are experience by itself. Otherwise, we've extended the "LogTrainer" setting in the ini file and you might want to try = 3 (instead of = 1) for further diagnostic options. With this option set to 3, if the GTN turns off because it crashes, you'd find trainer log files in: "C:\ProgramData\Garmin\Trainers\GTN\crshrprts\gtn1\"
  24. Hi, I'm pleased to announce v2.5.7 is now released! It is available either via Settings Panel | Check Updates... or directly from our web site. v2.5.7: New: Aircraft Flight Manual Supplement (AFMS) related settings. New: Mark On Target discrete command (AFMS). Enhanced: Transponder VFR code presets (US/EUR or user VFRcode). Enhanced: Additional power sources setting (electric buses and generators/alternators). Enhanced: Further stability and performance enhancements. Enhanced: User's Manual corrections. Fixed: GTN Settings Panel could CTD on some computers. Fixed: GTN add-on menu could CTD on some computers. AFMS settings: the GTN supports specific enablement features configured during installation in a real aircraft. These are regrouped in the configuration panel under Aircraft Flight Manual Supplement (AFMS) and allow changing between VNAV and VCALC modes (GTN Trainer v6.50+), selecting V-Flag Declutter, disabling CDI key etc... v2.5.6: Enhanced: Further support for the latest GTN Trainer v6.50. Setting: Added adjustable screen and integral lighting with custom SimVars for third party aircraft. This update enables two simvars: "rxp.panel.rheostat_screen" and "rxp.panel.rheostat_integral". These permit third party aircraft vendors binding their custom aircraft rheostat implementation to our GTN gauge, in order to adjust the screen and the integral lighting intensity independently. v2.5.5: Settings: Choose new Garmin / Jeppesen Aviation Databases for Rotorcraft (trainer v6.50). Enhanced: Further support for the latest GTN Trainer v6.50. Enhanced: Rendering at small screen size, further refinements from previous version. Enhanced: User's Manual updated with correct references to new trainer v6.50 paths. Enhanced: Validated Compatibility with GTN trainers v6.21, v6.41. Enhanced: Further stability and performance enhancements. v2.5.4: New: Added support for the latest GTN Trainer v6.50. New: With Garmin / Jeppesen Aviation, Obstacles and Safetaxi® Databases cycle 1803. Enhanced: Rendering at small screen size. Enhanced: Further stability and performance enhancements. NB: this release focus is primarily GTN Trainer v6.50 compatibility. It may break compatibility with previous trainers (6.41 and 6.21) and we'll make sure to review all code changes for these in a future update. v2.5.3 New: Support for Prepar3D V4.3 autopilot. Enhanced: Internal corrections to prevent the boot screens from freezing when TCAD is active. Enhanced: Gauge graphics and renderer corrections. Enhanced: Further stability and performance enhancements. v2.5.2 Fixed: Keyboard shortcuts could fail registering some commands properly. Enhanced: ModelDef.xml updated with GUIDs, groups and corrections. Enhanced: GUI Panel Assistant auto-detected gauges and panel.cfg backup handling. Enhanced: Gauge Tooltips corrections. Enhanced: User's Manual corrections and additional information. Enhanced: Further stability and performance enhancements. We've further improved the auto-detection algorithm in the panel assistant in order to try refining the potential candidates found in the panel.cfg file. In addition, we've fixed a number of issues introduced in the previous version (2.5.1). The installed canonical ModelDef.xml also benefits from additional comments, GUIDs and groups in order to help 3rd party aircraft vendors getting up to speed with the integration of the Reality XP GTN into their aircraft. v2.5.1 New: Added support to fail RAIM Check via L:vars. New: Added discrete inputs L:vars. New: Added canonical ModelDef.xml file for third party aircraft vendors. Enhanced: Interactions with the included Mid Continent MD41-1484 WAAS Annunciator gauge. Enhanced: Interactions with the included Mid Continent MD41-1028 TAWS Control Unit gauge. Enhanced: TAWS auto-detected limits are properly saved in the ini file. Enhanced: Smarter GUI Panel Assistant auto-detection and filters. Enhanced: User's Manual corrections and additional information. Enhanced: Further stability and performance enhancements. BREAKING CHANGE: CW and CCW default GPS commands were reversed from the User's Manual (Use Simulator GPS Commands). Breaking Change: The GTN gauge was inversely intercepting the simulator GPS commands compared to the User's Manual. This new version fixes this and the documented commands are working as they should now. However, this is a breaking change which affects existing third party aircraft with pre-configured Reality XP GTN virtual cockpits, as well as the 'bridge' XML gauge which permits using a virtual cockpit pre-configured for 'another' GTN with the Reality XP GTN instead. Discrete inputs L:Vars The GTN FltSim now offers the same capabilities as the X-Plane version with these new L:vars. They permit external device control like in the real units. The GTN now accepts 3 inputs: remote CDI, remote OBS and remote TAWS inhibit. This function is notably show cased in action with the included Mid Continent MD41-1028 TAWS Control Unit gauge! ModelDef.xml This version installs a canonical modeldef.xml file so that third party vendors can get started quickly integrating the GTN in their virtual cockpits. (see User's Manual for more details). v2.5 New: LinkObs connects GPS to OBS source, either HSI (with LinkHsi) or VOR (AutoNavSource). New: Autopilot coupling and tracking compatible with host simulator simulation rate (up to 128x). Fixed: missing LPV procedures bug introduced in previous version. v2.4.16 New: Mid Continent MD41-1484 WAAS Annunciator gauge.* New: Mid Continent MD41-1028 TAWS Control Unit gauge.* New: Autopilot compatible with all previous P3D3 versions. Enhanced: User's Manual renamed to: "Reality XP GTN User's Manual (FltSim).pdf". Enhanced: User's Manual corrections and additional information. Enhanced: Installer cleans up older manual and shortcuts left from previous installations. Enhanced: Further stability and performance enhancements. * Installs P3D4/3 add-on.xml file automatically, more info: "C:\Program Files (x86)\Reality XP\Gauges" Mid Continent Gauges: This might be a good time for updating the panels in the Official Panel Configuration Thread with these 2 new gauges! LinkObs: With the previous versions, the option used to only connect the HSI OBS to the GPS. New in v2.5, when using the LinkObs option, the OBS source is either the HSI OBS when the GPS device is connected to the HSI (LinkHsi option), or the VOR1/2 OBS when the GPS device is connected to the VOR (in this case VOR1 or VOR2 depends on the AutoNavSource setting). NB: FltSim VOR1 OBS and HSI OBS are same source, same simvar, unlike X-Plane.
