  1. Hi, I'm pleased to announce v2.4.4 is now released! It is available either via Settings Panel | Check Updates... or directly from our web site. v2.4.4 New: Satellite-Based Augmentation Systems (SBAS) selections: WAAS, EGNOS, MSAS and GAGAN extending availability of LPV approaches worldwide. New: Aircraft Flight Manual Supplement (AFMS) related settings. New: Create and load per-aircraft Checklists (see User's Manual). Enhanced: Switching OBS mode should keep DTK stable. Enhanced: Additional power sources setting (electric buses and generators/alternators). Enhanced: Undocumented 'GNSOBSTCL' environment variable sets path to the obstacle db file. Enhanced: Further corrections to path redirections using the environment variables. Enhanced: Further corrections to the canonical modeldef.xml file. Enhanced: Further stability and performance enhancements. Enhanced: User's Manual corrections. Fixed: GNS Settings Panel could CTD on some computers. Fixed: GNS add-on menu could CTD on some computers. About SBAS: Systems and approaches availability depends on the navigation database. Display the last GNS AUX page, select SBAS Selection then enable each system. About AFMS settings: The GNS 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 selecting V-Flag Declutter, disabling CDI key etc... v2.4.3 New: Support for Prepar3D V4.3 autopilot. Enhanced: Gauge graphics and renderer corrections. Enhanced: Further stability and performance enhancements. v2.4.2 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. BREAKING CHANGE: Published Knobs L:vars change to per-unit only (was per-device/unit). 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 (2.4.1). 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 GNS V2 into their aircraft. Working on the modeldef.xml revealed shortcomings with some of our published L:vars. Previous versions used to publish per-type/per-unit vars meant to offer the means for 3rd party aircraft vendors to sync the 3D knobs rotation with the 2D gauge. However, this granularity proved to be unecessary so we've reduced the number of L:vars and now publish only per-unit number vars (rxp.GNS_1.knob_powr etc...) v2.4.1 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. New: 'GPS_TERRAIN_BUTTON' -> 'TAWS INHIBIT' (Use Simulator GPS Command). 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. Discrete inputs L:Vars The GNS V2 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 GNS V2 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 GNS in their virtual cockpits. (see User's Manual for more details). v2.4 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). v2.3.12 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. New: GNS Hardware Driver compatible with 64bits simulators** Enhanced: User's Manual renamed to: "Reality XP GNS V2 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" ** The installer includes the latest PFC DLL 32/64bits but the feature requires a separate GNS Hardware Driver product license to function. 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 v2.4, 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.

  3. Only a few breaks in the clouds on this short flight from Port Angeles to Sekiu WA. My PC12 is nicely equipped with GTN750 and GNS530W. Also, thanks to @scottb613 for the incredible paint job. And also the mysterious new flight model update makes this a pretty darn great addon. (I can recommend it again!)

  5. Hi, I'm pleased to announce v2.4.4 is now released! It is available either via Plugin | Reality XP GNS | Check Updates... or directly from our web site. v2.4.4 New: Satellite-Based Augmentation Systems (SBAS) selections: WAAS, EGNOS, MSAS and GAGAN extending availability of LPV approaches worldwide. New: Aircraft Flight Manual Supplement (AFMS) related settings. New: Create and load per-aircraft Checklists (see User's Manual). New: HSI CDI/GSI scaling factor (as in FltSim version). Enhanced: Switching OBS mode should keep DTK stable. Enhanced: Additional power sources setting (electric buses 1 to 6). Enhanced: Undocumented 'GNSOBSTCL' environment variable sets path to the obstacle db file. Enhanced: Further corrections to path redirections using the environment variables. Enhanced: Further stability and performance enhancements. Enhanced: User's Manual corrections. Fixed: GNS Settings Panel could CTD on some computers. About SBAS: Systems and approaches availability depends on the navigation database. Display the last GNS AUX page, select SBAS Selection then enable each system. About AFMS settings: The GNS 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 selecting V-Flag Declutter, disabling CDI key etc... v2.4.3 Enhanced: Plugin graphics and renderer corrections. Enhanced: Further stability and performance enhancements. v2.4.2.1 Fixed: Mouse not working in 3D and VR in previous update. v2.4.2 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 GNS V2 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 GNS 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 GNS1 Route.fms" (and GNS2 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). v2.4.1 New: Supports X-Plane 11.20 VR mode. New: Added support to fail RAIM Check via datarefs. New: Added discrete inputs datarefs. New: Additional commands (discrete inputs like in GTN XPlane): 'CDI_SOURCE', 'OBS_MODE' and 'TAWS_INHIBIT'. Fixed: GNS 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 GNS 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 GNS 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 GNS from the menu. v2.4.0 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). v2.3.12 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). New: GNS Hardware Driver compatible with 64bits simulators* Fixed: GPS Master Device state not saved to the settings file (take 2). Enhanced: The plugin log file name is now "Documents\rxpGNS2.xpl.log" for consistency. Enhanced: User's Manual renamed to: "Reality XP GNS V2 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. * The installer includes the latest PFC DLL 32/64bits but the feature requires a separate GNS Hardware Driver product license to function. LinkObs: With the previous versions, the option used to only connect the HSI OBS to the GPS. New in v2.4, 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).
  6. 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.

  7. 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.
  8. Hi, Now included in the Reality XP GNS 530/430 V2 FltSim v2.3.12 and Reality XP GTN 750/650 Touch v2.4.16! Mid Continent MD41-1484W Annunciator Control Unit Mid Continent MD41-1028 TAWS CONTROL UNIT The rxpGpsAnnun.cab includes two gauges offered as addition to the GTN and GNS V2, the Mid Continent WAAS annunciation panel and the Mid Continent TAWS control unit. They are released as XML gauges, so that it makes it easy for third party vendors to integrate the same annunciation panels as-is in their aircraft, or using the same XML code when displaying in an EFIS for example. Both gauges install automatically to P3D4 and P3D3 using the GNS V2 and GTN existing add-on.xml file. It requires editing the panel.cfg file to add them to the actual panel though. For manual Installation: Prefered method is using the Prepar3d addon xml file: 1) copy the file rxpGpsAnnun.cab to "C:\Program Files (x86)\Reality XP\Gauges" 2) copy and paste the following to a new file named 'add-on.xml' <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> <SimBase.Document Type="AddOnXml" version="3,3" id="add-on"> <AddOn.Name>Reality XP GPS Annunciation</AddOn.Name> <AddOn.Description>Reality XP Gauges</AddOn.Description> <AddOn.Component> <Category>Gauges</Category> <Name>Reality XP GPS Annunciation</Name> <Path>C:\Program Files (x86)\Reality XP\Gauges</Path> </AddOn.Component> </SimBase.Document> 3) copy the add-on.xml file into: "Documents\Prepar3D v4 Add-ons\Reality XP Gauges" Alternatively, copy the rxpGpsAnnun.cab file in the simulator Gauges folder. Gauge specs: rxpGpsAnnun!TAWS,0,0,350,100 rxpGpsAnnun!WAAS,0,0,350,100 Known limitations: - Requires Reality XP GTN 750/650 Touch v2.5 minimum. - Requires Reality XP GNS 530/430 V2 v2.4.1 minimum. PS: For the old-timers, they used to be included in our GNS legacy, but weren't included yet in the GTN or the GNS V2 gauge file. I've decided to reboot these gauges and offer them as XML gauges, so that it makes it easy for third party vendors to integrate the same annunciation panels as-is in their aircraft, or using the same XML code when displaying in an EFIS for example.
  9. I wasn't going to post anything as this was an online flight on Pilot Edge. But once the sun started dropping I was taken back to my real world flying. The sunset looked real, the atmosphere, felt real. So I snapped away. Hope you guys enjoy! Aerobask Eclipse 550 with RXP GTN 750, Ortho ZL16, KMYF to F70 French Valley airport by GPB500.

  10. I recently purchased the RXP GTN 750 and have installed it into Prepar3D v2.5 and v4.2. This is an amazing product and I am so glad that I purchased this unit. So far, I have installed it into 2D Windows for the Lear 45, Baron 58 and Mooney Bravo. Of all the things that I love about this unit, there is one problem that I am experiencing with each aircraft. During flights that require course changes of 30 degrees or more, the aircraft starts preforming S-Turns and has difficulty tracking and locking on course. The P3D standard G1000 that I used before I purchased the GTN 750 did not have this problem. It seems to me that the GTN 750 over responds to course changes greater than 30 degrees. Is anyone else having this tracking issue? Is there a way to correct this problem? Thanks for your help.

  13. Here is a trip to Phoenix from my home airport in my little CJ... When I'm in the CJ I usually have to wait at the end of the line for takeoff...that 737 got a ATC hold so I got to jump ahead of him! Liftoff from 17R...the AA farm in the background. Nice shot of downtown Dallas (One of those buildings is one I work at) In fact, why don't I just show you a shot from my window at work? (one of the dozens of SWA's that buzz by my window everyday into KDAL) That is the "building with a hole in it" right next to ours.) She is a good looking bird! Another glam shot, hehe. I turned the RXP GTN's screen to all black by turning off the Topo option (2 taps on the screen) as it really helps to simplify the view....no need for terrain awareness at 40,000 feet! Beautiful mountains below a lovely plane. You can't deny Carenado puts stunning detail in their models. Easing down into the pattern, the GTN set on Chart view...sometimes I like it better with its North-Up orientation vs the map on the ND with it rotating as you turn. Easy to see here that I'm just south of the localizer, going to capture in about 10 seconds. On the GTN I can also easily see in this view that my radio is tuned to the correct localizer freq. When you first go to this screen you'll notice your view of the map is limited because the relevant info for this chart is on the left in its own window. Simply touch the Split button and the map goes full screen. You're able to zoom in and out, pan all around the map with hand gestures common to any tablet user (or if you have it on your monitor, common mouse clicks and moves) Perfectly lined up now, gear coming down. Looking at the CJ2's instrumentation (cross-checking), you can see the APPR mode is engaged and I am in fact lined up right on the dots on the PFD. GTN mode on Safe Taxi® mode to get to our parking (well you just have to zoom in to a certain level to see the taxiways. The level of zoom it appears at is configurable in the menu...but for those who may not see the taxiways..beware that you can't have your declutter level set to its max...it declutters the taxiways too, hehe. Its just a few clicks to fix it). Ahhh....my little CJ gets to spend the night in the house tonight! All tucked in, beautiful sunset in the background (with a palm tree!) I wish Carenado put an option on the popup menu to remove the pilots from view (esp when it's parked) I have a few more flights lined up with some new birds, I'll keep showing you more features I use (and discover) with the RXP GTN as I progress in my GA career!

  15. Hello and thank you for your effort. I have just bought the GTN 650 and installed it in XPL 10. I installed the 2.4.0.0 version from the official RXP store, not the release candidate from this forum. During installation I got the trainer install error, but I continued the installation. After finishing the RXP installation I manually unzipped and installed the trainer which the installed downloaded. I did not change any paths, and this is the only Garmin trainer installed. In ProgramData/Reality XP I see foru .dll and one .rxp file. My rxpGTN.xpl.log contains only 17/04/15 18:52:38.748 08836 - ] # win.xpl version 2.4.0.0 My rxpGtnSim.dll.log contains only 17/04/15 18:52:43.370 08836 - ] # rxpGtnSim64.dll version 2.4.0.0 Windows 7, latest X Plane 10 version here. After loading my Carenado C172 in the X-Plane at LOWI, I was able to show both of the GTN units. They powered up. I see the home page, and buttons Traffix, Default NAV, Flight Plan, PROC and Nearest were tested and work (subsequent menus appear, I was able to start a simple LOWI DCT LKPR flightplan and even Review it in the Flight Plan menu. The problem is that when I click either Map or Terrain, the unit freezes. No chance to use anything else than until Xplane restart. The Map button remains blue after clicking it, the Terrain button not. Tested twice with XPL restart, both units same behavior. Any ideas? If you need any testing or debugging, let me know. Pavel

    My Private Jet

    It's a great day to fly - I'm off for a short hop over the Tetons to Driggs, Idaho. Scenery featured is GPB500's KJAC (payware part of a large package of excellent airports). Sadly I don't have HD Mesh v4 installed for this region. (So it would look even better if you did - freeware) Aerobask's Viper Jet with my modded GNS530W v2 from Reality XP.

  19. Here is a series from my latest flight using the ever-useful RXP GTN. For reference (I mentioned in my last post but not everyone views every post, hehe), The GTN usually sits on my lap on a tablet, I drag the screen onto the main view for the screenshots to reference how I'm using it for navigation). Here is the tail end of my KJFK to KDFW flight. I did it to see if I could fly out of the storm on the East Coast that has so many flight cancelled...Did not get screens of the departure ( but it was a blast...an "arctic" blast. hehe) Lined up on final 35 Center. Here I displayed the chart for the ILS, you can see the chart view as well as the map view show the aircraft's position, very handy. :) Almost there....crabbing into the crosswind....For those who know the area...that is 183 I'm just about to pass over. Totally unrealistic as it's not crammed with bumper to bumper traffic! Short final now...an AA 737 in new colors taking 35L for departure...with a classic AA 737 holding. Over the numbers...feeling for the runway. With 13,401 feet to work with, you can afford to float a little, hehe. that AA turned out to be an Airbus! I know in real life (at this moment) 35C is closed for maintenance, but I like this runway, and its flightsim. Notice how the GTN is all ready to guide me thru a missed approach with a click of a button, so nice! Clear of 35C and holding to cross 35L...that Classic AA 737 just rotating in front of me. Ground called and said "Citation 5811, cross 35L, right on Lima, left on Yankee, taxi to the Corp Aviation ramp. So I popped over to the Safe Taxi® screen to monitor my position...invaluable tool on a huge mass of concrete like KDFW and a dizzying array of taxiways. As I was taxiing I had a little time to kill....so I popped into the Fuel Planing page to see how my fuel burn was. Turning on to Yankee....almost there.... Nobody puts Baby in the corner! Oh wait...I guess the rampers at DFW do, LOL. The GTN even shows you in blue text boxes what the buildings are...in this case the DFW Corporate Aviation center. Sorry for the heavy jpg compression and bad rez on the screenshots....with a 55" monitor at 4K...full screens with no compression would be megabytes huge...I try to keep my screens under 250k. Will post my KTEX>KJAC trip shortly.
