  1. I was just trading messages with Jim from Traffic Global, urging him to coordinate with you to keep from having ATC clearing me for an ILS landing and then at 500 ft. suddenly telling me to do a published go-around due to traffic on the runway. This happens a lot at busy airports. Or I am cleared for takeoff and on the runway when a jumbo jet lands on top of my plane. Rather ruins the morning..... TG is going to be the dominant traffic program and you have the best ATC solution available. It would be a dynamite combination.... BTW, I did the installation that Kennair describes in the post just above this one. It works great....
  2. There is an awesome new video on YouTube. Search for installing voices in Pilot2ATC. I got a whole bunch of great new voices and there appears to be no limit to the number available. They come directly from Microsoft and are free....
  3. I have English US as my primary language, but also have Spanish installed including for voice recognition. I wonder if I should remove the voice recognition for Spanish?
  4. I have managed to get little red planes to appear on the P2A map and have gotten warnings of traffic, so I am partly there. I haven't had any contact with planes on the ground yet. It would be way cool for departing traffic to queue, but with only 19 AI planes, there aren't all that many of them. Thanks for your response.... and your great program!
  5. Hello Dave, I have been trying Traffic Global and think that it is going to have the depth to become a major AI traffic mod. The developers say in the manual that they have created hooks for others to link up with them easily. It would be great to see their AI planes recognized by P2A. Their AI is basically invisible to Xplane but if you can link to them directly, Xplane won't matter..... Thanks for considering this......
  6. Hello, I have been trying Traffic Global and think that it is going to have the depth to become a major AI traffic mod. The developers say in the manual that they have created hooks for others to link up with them easily. It would be great to see their AI planes on the 750 (once it works on one GPS, it will work on all). Their AI is basically invisible to Xplane but if you can link to them directly, Xplane won't matter..... Thanks for considering this......
  7. Thanks Dave, #2 has a workable solution and I will use it. However, #1 comes at a bad time. I am very busy with turning onto the final approach and going through that whole process is too much to ask. I just ignore ATC until I land. I usually have FSE passengers aboard and don't want to do anything that might interrupt the flight and force me to start over from scratch.....
  8. Hello, There are a few times when P2A gets stubborn and won't let me go forward. 1) sometimes I get nervous when a pass the green arrow for descent and P2A doesn't tell me to descend. But if I initiate a descent on my own, P2A scolds me and says "expedite climb to xxxxx" , But if I don't obey because I am now in a zone where the waypoints demand a lower altitude, P2A doesn't realize that now I can descend. It will continue "expedite climb to xxxxx" all the way down to the runway. There needs to be a routine where it checks to see if maintain altitude is still what is needed. 2) Sometimes when I taxi, I will select an entry to the runway that wasn't what P2A expected, so when I announce "ready for departure" it sends me to the tower who sends me back to ground for taxi instructions. I haven't found a way out of this loop other than just taking off and announcing my climb to the regional control. I'm not talking about a midfield departure, but entering by a taxiway a few hundred feet short of the end of runway. If P2A accepted a departure point within a 300 ft radius of the X-Y that it wants, life would be more pleasant..... I use P2A several times every day, so these things come up from time to time. If there are tricks that I can use as workaround, I would be pleased to learn them.
  9. It is embarrassing to admit that this problem has been solved for a while now and I don't even remember how I did it - or even IF I did it. Sorry!
  10. If I make a flight plan with an approach, I want the plane to fly to the first waypoint on the approach, not the airport. I can get that by deleting the airport in the plan after the approach is loaded. Then the plane does what I want. Now that I know that the approach will not be put in front of the airport, I can delete and all is well. What matters is not getting a surprise when I am very busy arriving.
  11. But I activated the approach to EGNV before taking the screenshot that shows the airport before the approach. I think you can demo this without having to fly....
  12. OK, I have had no more freezes, but the problem with approaches to airports without a STAR continues. This one can be reproduced, I think. I go from EGGP (Liverpool) to EGNV (Durham-Tees) leaving from EGGP with one of the POL5V SID and then to EGNV. There are no STARs at EGNV, so I selected the ILS approach to Rwy 05 with the D288O transition. The GTN put EGNV BEFORE the approach as in photo 1. So I manually deleted EGNV setting up a clean approach as in photo 2. The plane followed the plan in photo 2 and the RNAV approach worked. So the only problem is the airport coming before the approach in airports without a STAR. https://www.dropbox.com/s/p9c41tbnptme6zh/DA62 - 2019-08-03 11.43.40.jpg?dl=0 https://www.dropbox.com/s/rirkv39lsuhld89/DA62 - 2019-08-03 11.44.22.jpg?dl=0 There are the 2 photos. I hope you will be able to see them.......
  13. So I flew the above flight and nothing froze up. I got to the runway at KIYK. The glide slope on the RNAV approach didn't work, but it could have been because I was too high. I have not had a good glide slope approach for a while now. I then flew from KIYD to KSAN (San Diego) and selected a STAR and an approach. When I activated the approach, the airport name was not in the plan - Rwy 27 was there. The plane followed the plan and didn't freeze up. There is no glide slope for Rwy 27 at KSAN due to high buildings, so no test..... Other than the KIYK name in the plan BEFORE the approach, everything worked fine. I will quit bothering you until I have a reproducible error.
  14. OK, I just loaded a flight in the TBM900 from KSFO to KIYK (Inyokern, California). Sorry it wasn't shorter. KIYK has no STAR, so I loaded an RNAV approach to Rwy 02. Even after activating the approach, KIYK was ahead of the approach in the plan. See photo of plan preview. Sorry, importing a photo is too much hassle. Take my word for it. So I am going to delete the KIYK in the plan and then try to fly. Back soon......
  15. I flew the plan with the airport L45 in front of the approach, but when I was 30 miles from the airport, I deleted L45 and the plane arrived correctly at the runway. There were no freezes. So I returned to KSNA. It has a STAR which I loaded. Then I loaded the approach and this time, the airport name was not in front of the approach. So apparently it works some of the time - and doesn't work some of the time. I will keep testing and report back.
