I apologize if this has been answered elsewhere but maybe I am the only one with the issue. I have very recently been directed by one of the GTN 750 updates to also update the trainer. I now have Version 6.620 TRNG . With the update I seem to have lost all of my old flight plans. I do have a backup of most of the folders used by the Trainers. What would I need to copy over from my backup to the trainer location without messing up my trainer version and database? Thanks for any answers. Charles
Hello Jean-Luc, I have not been having much luck in importing flight plans from my favorite planners. The most important of these is Pilot2ATC. If I create an IFR flight with P2A, the ATC will function correctly throughout the flight. But when I try to export the plan to the GTN750, the intermediate (enroute) waypoints are locked which means that I can't use the plan. I made a plan from KOAK BSR RZS KSNA and P2A wrote the following flight plan for the GTN: FPN/RI:F:KOAK:F:BSR:F:RZS:F:KSNA which gave me the result shown if you click on this photo https://imgur.com/a/Ds1gowE so I end up with just the departure and the destination. But I can take the same waypoints and enter them manually into the GTN and then the plan works. Little NavMap also exports to GTN, but substitutes lat/long for the named waypoints enroute like this: FPN/RI:F:KOAK:F:N36109W121385:F:N34306W119463:F:KSNA That works although BSR and RZS (which are in the Garmin database) are just listed as numbered user waypoints. It gets even more complicated when I try to use SIDs or STARs. I'm wondering if you could supply Dave at Pilot2ATC with current formatting data so that he could correctly export your plans?????
Hi Dave, I've been flying Xplane in VR and am returning to your program after a while away. I have started using the RealityXP GTN 750 and 650. Since ATC wants a filed flightplan for IFR, I have been using your program to create those. But when I go to export, all I get when I load the GTN750 is the departure and arrival airports - none of the intermediate waypoints and none of the SIDs or STARs. The GTN is an autopilot more than anything else and if I can't use it to follow the plan then I have to go back to the Laminar built in GPS, which is too small to read in VR. The GTN has a database which is not current with the AIRACs and so some waypoints will not appear on the GTN. Little NavMap generates custom lat-long waypoints in those circumstances. But that doesn't help because your ATC has gotten better and better. I really like that it is more forgiving of my errors than it used to be. I can use it even if it is not visible in the cockpit. I hope this is just a formatting problem... Regards, Richard
