(Note: If the ground equipment is still connected when you ask to Start Engine 2, you will now need to remove the ground equipment manually via the PMDG Ground Connections menu.) If the Ground Air Conditioning Cart is connected to the aircraft, the FO will not set the Packs to Auto during his Pre-Flight setup flow. He shall leave the Packs off as per Boeing SOP.

Also note that, if using Voice Control, you can speak in French in some situations with the phrases below. Note that your speech recognizer still needs to be set to ENGLISH - US, but the system will still understand you if you speak French using the phrases below. We tested the system with both continental French and Quebec French accents and the results were good. For more details, please consult the updated Tutorial at www.support.fs2crew.com.

Very important: There are two FS2Crew 777 Config Managers. One for P3D and one for FSX. If you want to use the P3D version, you will need to install FS2Crew via the new P3D install option in the FS2Crew installer. Next, you will need to enable FS2Crew in the P3D version of the 777 Config Manager. How do you access the 777 Config Managers? There should be two shortcut icons on your desktop for the FS2Crew 777 Config Manager. One for P3D and one for FSX. See the screen shots below to ensure you're using the right Config Manager. You can also access the Config Managers via START - ALL PROGRAMS - FS2CREW2014.

VERSION 1.2 JAN 31 2015 FIXED/UPDATED: Installer no longer refers to the Majestic Dash 8 if it cannot detect the PMDG 777.

NEW FMA CALLOUTS: FLIGHT DIRECTOR NEW VOICE COMMANDS: SET EFIS MODE TO APPROACH SET EFIS MODE TO VOR SET EFIS MODE TO MAP SET EFIS MODE TO PLAN DISPLAY WEATHER ON MY SIDE DISPLAY STATIONS ON MY SIDE DISPLAY WAYPOINTS ON MY SIDE DISPLAY AIRPORTS ON MY SIDE DISPLAY POSITION ON MY SIDE DISPLAY TERRAIN ON MY SIDE NEW CFG/AIRLINE OPTIONS: Option to disable the FO's V1 callout.

FO turns off Dome Light properly during Before Start flow if flying at night. If ASDEX (ground radar selected) on the Brief Panel, FO will now set the Xponder to TARA during his Before Start Flow.

Thru-Flights Pre-Flight Events reset for Button Control The crew will no longer read back the first 0 (for example, in 0998 HPA) during Altimeter Setting checks. In this case, the crew would simply say 998. The Descent Checklist will now accept "Minimums" values to an extra place. Example: "MINIMUMS ONE ZERO ZERO ONE FEET". FO will turn on landing lights (should they have been turned off during the After Takeoff flow) after a Go Around on a 2nd approach after you call for gear down. Fixed a typo in the installer that referred to the Majestic Dash 8 instead of the PMDG 777 if the PMDG 777 host aircraft was not installed correctly.

Call for the Takeoff Flap prior to running the Before Takeoff Checklist. New speech grammar to accommodate Virgin SOPs: "STABLE, MISSED APPROACH ALTITUDE SET". During the FO's shutdown flow, the FO will reset the Transponder to 2000, and set the MCP Heading to 360, Altitude to 10000 and Speed to 250. FO's shutdown flow time drastically reduced based on feedback from a 777 Cathay Pacific pilot.

  2. I have made a new version of Cloud Shadows available for download - version 1.3. To Update simply use the URL that you were sent when you purchased to get the new version. Note that this version is delivered as a zip containing the installer, manual and installation notes. It addresses the two outstanding issues: Shadows on water will move if you change altitude at dusk. Hard edged shadowline on hillsides It also adds a new features METAR Option - when shadows cannot be shown (e.g below 1000ft) then the cloud coverage is used for lighting to avoid for example a transition when landing from overcast to full sunlight. (This is optional and disabled by default) Autogen was meant to be shaded but it didn't work in 1.3. However I have now created a new build 1.4 in which it does work, so please download it.
  3. Hi, I'm pleased to announce the official GNS v2.2 release! Most of you regular forum visitors mostly know what is new, but let me try to wrap it up in one place! Here are the release notes: New: Configuration Panel GUI. New: Import flight plans (Garmin .fpl format). New: Export flight plans (Garmin .fpl format). New: Use stock X-Plane GPS buttons and knobs. New: Tutorial: Upgrade X-Plane 11 Baron 58 GPS Enhanced: User's manual new sections and corrections. Enhanced: Bug corrections and stability enhancements. A little bit more information: The GTN menu has completely changed now that we have the configuration panel GUI. We've also deactivated automatic updates and added a manual "Check Updates..." menu option instead. The configuration panel GUI is a great addition to the product. With its modern interface it makes editing the INI file a thing of the past. Import flight plan and Export flight plan is very handy especially when using external flight planning tools. This works with the native Garmin .fpl format. The GNS installs a sample pack to get you started, along with a dedicated chapter in the user's manual. Use stock X-Plane GPS buttons and knobs is a great step toward better panel integration and shines with the GNS V2. Simply put: this feature alone is the killer app to integrating the GNS V2 to any XP11 and XP10 panels using the stock GPS 500 and GPS 400. To put this in action, the user's manual now includes a complete tutorial to guide you through replacing the XP11 Baron 58 GPS with the GNS 530W V2. Here is what the end result looks like, with fully working knobs and keys: User's Manual: we've put additional efforts to the user's manual with more explanations, better pagination and proper sections. We encourage all of you to take the time to review and re-read the manual, not only to discover the new features listed above, but also to discover some of the features you might have missed! As always, you just need to download the e-commerce installers from our website, or use the downloaded file from the auto-update panel, and then re-install over your existing installation. [uPDATE] FEB21/18:00Z: The installers has been re-uploaded to fix the missing folder causing the GNS blank screen.

  7. FS2Crew NGX Captains, 9 May 2013: Emergency NGX! has been updated to Version 2.3E. The Update is built into the Main Installer. There is no stand-alone update file. You will need to login to your FS2Crew account and click "Completed Orders". Re-download and Re-install the software. You do not need to uninstall the previous version. Version 2.3 Change Log: FIXED - If you had an engine failure, you could possibly re-trigger the Engine Failure Checklist during the Shutdown Checklist. FIXED - Other minor bugs. Version 2.2 Change Log: FIXED - Probe Heat Failures (FO's confirmation audio did not previously match the actual affected probe heat). FIXED - "You can disconnect the external air and GPU now" will now work properly on a 2nd leg. NEW - Pushback Distance as selected on the FS2Crew Config Panel will now auto save. NEW - Autothrottle disengaged added to speech grammar. NEW - Voice commmand to set Transponder. SYNTAX: "SET XXXX ON THE TRANSPONDER". Version 2.1 Change Log: New Voice Commands: "CONFIGURE FOR A BLEEDS OFF LANDING" - Would be used during an engine failure/fire shortly after takeoff and you need to return to the departure airport on a hot day or at a high altitude airport and go around performance is an issue. FS2Crew always modeled bleeds off landings as an option, but the trigger altitude for the PM to setup for a bleeds off landing was descending through 10,000 feet. This new call allows you to setup for a bleeds off landing should you decide to turn around before climbing through 10,000 feet. "RECYCLE FLIGHT DIRECTORS" - Note the new syntax: "Recycle" instead of "Cycle". Logic also fixed. FO will now shut off both FD's before turning them back on. "N1 TOGA" - New FMA announcement. General Fixes: FIXED - Possible CTDs when "Exiting" or "Closing Down" FSX. FIXED - User settings not saved. FIXED - Video Marshaller in Windows 8 now operational. FIXED - On a one-engine landing, the deferred items will now be read after the Descent Checklist has been completed. ADJUSTED - 'C'est Bon' removed from a few of the French sound files as per user request. Updated Procedures: ONE ENGINE INOPERATIVE LANDING CHECKLIST - After calling for the checklist, the PM will ask you if you want to use Flaps 15 or Flaps 30 for landing. You must answer. The PM will then complete the checklist based on your respond. Please note the updated phraseology.Procedure: 1.PF ONE ENGINE INOPERATIVE LANDING CHECKLIST 2.PM FLAPS 15 OR LANDING WITH FLAPS 30? 3. PF FLAPS 15 or FLAPS 30 4.PM Will complete the checklist. 5.PF Brief for a Flaps 15 Landing if required via the FS2Crew Briefing Panel Version 2.0 Change Log: New Voice Commands: "VISUAL" - Use it when you are switching to a visual approach. The FO/PM will alter his approach callouts accordingly. "RESET MASTER CAUTION" - Used to extinguish nuisance Master Cautions. "CYCLE FLIGHT DIRECTORS" - Used to cycle both FD's off. "VNAV ALT" - New FMA announcement. New Calls: "THRUST SET" - The FO will call Thrust Set after Takeoff power is reached. New functions on FS2Crew Panels: AUDIO TEST BUTTON - Used to test the FS2Crew sound. New Features: TIMER - FO/PM now starts his timer on takeoff, and turns off of when exiting the runway. General Fixes: FIXED - Some users experienced FSX 'hanging' on shut-down. FIXED - In certain situations, the wheel chocks would be placed, and then removed, at gate arrival. FIXED - GPWS Inhibt Switches FIXED - UK Voice Set 'Hydraulic Panel' made singular. MODIFIED - The looping passenger boarding sound was edited slightly as per some user requests. FIXED - If calling "SELECT RAW DATA ON YOUR SIDE" while shooting a VOR approach, the FO will now select the VOR ROSE instead of APP. For Button Control Only: NEW OPTION - Skip Flaps 10. By default, FS2Crew will now skip the Flaps 10 call on approach. However if you want Flaps 10 again, go to this folder (you will need to enable 'show hidden folders' first): Users\**** Your user Name **** \AppData\Roaming\FS2Crew2010\Versions\PMDG737NGX\SavedData Open this file with Notepad: FS2CrewData.ini Change: FLAPS=0 to FLAPS=1 Then Save.
  8. Hello @ll, LorbyLiveTraffic version 1.60 b04 can be downloaded from the Lorby-SI website. The biggest new feature is offline (randomized) helicopter, GA and military AI traffic, in all sims FSX trough P3D V4. The app uses the default aircraft for that, but a dialog has been included where you can easily add new models, and localize them down to a single ICAO code. That way you can make sure that only a certain type of aircraft is flying from a specific airfield or country. You can also add "virtual" helipads to increase helicopter traffic if you don't own scenery expansions. The online part of the app can now be turned off entirely, should you wish to only run the new randomized traffic. Best regards
  9. Hi Captains, We just posted on http://www.virtualavionics.com.br/va/downloads the Beta release 2.23.1 supporting the new 747-400 Queen of the Skies II from PMDG. Please note this is a Beta release, so some issues still can be found. Compatible Products : MCP737-R All functions supported. CMD center button is mapped to CWS A. THR button is mapped to N1. Some buttons are present on 737 and not present on 747, in this case they have no function on 747. EFIS737 PRO All functions supported Virtual CDU 747 We are changing Apple Store and Google Play product details to reflect the support to PMDG 747. Anyway it is already working. Users that will or have already purchased Virtual CDU 747 can enjoy it. Google Play version is v1.1 iTunes version is v1.0 Rgds, Amauri.
  10. Legendary gauges update v2.1 is now available to download! Here are the release notes: New: GPS satellite reception failure (waas/no-waas/failed). Enhanced: Screen brightness light source setting. Enhanced: Keys brightness (integral lighting) source setting. Fixed: X-Plane 11 installer option saving to XP10 folder. GNS Failure Annunciations We've decided to delay the release for 24H and include the new GPS satellite reception failure as in the GTN update. You can now practice degraded approaches (WAAS failure) and simulate what-if loosing GPS reception entirely! For those not wanting to read the whole manual again, here is the new chapter about the failures. The GNS plugin uses the following datarefs as failures sources "sim/operation/failures/rel_gps", "sim/operation/failures/rel_g430_gps1" Satellite reception failure, displays "No GPS Position" "sim/operation/failures/rel_gp" Differential GPS failure, reduces location accuracy. Satellite reception mode switches to 3D instead of 3D-Diff." Light Sources Because not all aircraft are the same and we want the best out-the-box experience, the integral lighting settings (keys and screen) now default to fixed values (75% and 100% respectively). The RealityXP.GNS.ini file gives you the choice to override the default and connect the X-Plane rheostats sources per-aircraft. Installer There was a bug that passed unnoticed since release and only discovered with the GTN v2.3 update, which made it copy the plugin files to the XP10 folder. For related reasons, a key shared data file was not copied at all with XP11 only option and prevented the plugin to display any artwork. It is now fixed.
  11. Attention PMDG 777 users, Version 3.1 of FS2Crew for the PMDG 777 is now current. Change Log: http://www.avsim.com/topic/455405-26-january-2017-version-31-for-the-pmdg-777-released/ Best,
  12. Gents, The Airbus Global FO voice set has been released! The Airbus version has been updated to V3.0! More info: http://www.avsim.com/topic/416079-25-august-2016-version-30-is-now-available-go-get-it/
  13. I'm pleased to officially announce the anticipated update v2.2.1 to: RXP GTN 750 Touch and RXP GTN 650 Touch: - Designed for X-Plane 10 in 64 bits. - Runs on Windows 10. - compatible with XP10-32, XP9 They really are the most advanced 64 bits GPS simulation available to the flight simulation community. And there is more! It now comes with a free bonus: Ryan 9900BX TCAD simulation on-board! It is Internally powered by a complete TCAS II Mark 7 simulation passing the 250 TSIM tests, and comes integrated to the RXP GTN 750 Touch and the RXP GTN 650 Touch. You can take full control of the TCAD detection shields, view nearby traffic and take actions upon visual and aural TA advisories directly on the GTN touchscreen. Mind you, it is not just a TCAD gimmick showing up traffic nearby, it is an authentic TCAS simulation configured in TA only mode, doing the correct math and the correct alerting! These are exciting times for X-Plane simmers and this is just the beginning: there is more to come this year!
  14. Captains, Informing you that Version 3 of FS2Crew for the Majestic Dash 8 has been released! The Change Log is in FS2Crew Majestic Dash 8 sub-forum (1st post).
  15. Captains, 1 August 2020: RAAS updated to V3.3! How to Install: Please visit the RAAS Downloads Page on the FS2Crew website for information. 1. You can install this version of RAAS over the old version without uninstalling first. 2. If updating, you do NOT need to run MakeRunways again (but it's good practice to run it anyway to ensure your runways database is current!) 3. If you're doing a brand new install in FSX: Steam, then you will need run MakeRunways inside of the FSX: Steam folder. CHANGE LOG: VERSION 3.3 1-New config options have been added that give user's greater control over the "Altimeter Setting" warning callouts. A problem could occur where users would manually set their altimeters based on a 3rd party METAR setting, and not on the actual pressure at the aircraft. This could trigger an "Altimeter Warning" callout due to the difference in altimeter settings. The new options add a tolerance level setting to help you avoid this scenario due to the possible different altimeter setting values. Moreover, we recommend that all FS Labs Airbus users disable the "Altimeter Setting (Above and Below Transition)" warning callout because RAAS cannot read the Altimeter in the FSLabs aircraft directly. VERSION 3.0 1-RAAS now supports P3D Version 5! The P3D V5 option will appear in the installer options (P3D 64 bit version of RAAS only!) VERSION 1-Fixes issue with saving Master Switch (Aircraft must use a Saved Profile for this to work. 2-Fixes with issue with TA/TL callout. 3-Adds additional runway reading support for FS Labs Airbus version of FS2Crew. VERSION 1-Fixes issue associated with saving the Master Volume slider. VERSION 1-Locked version support for the Aerosoft CRJ and PMDG 747 V2. VERSION 1-New feature added. The RAAS Master Switch can now be controlled via a keypress or joystick button connected to the WATER RUDDER (UP/DOWN) command. This feature was based on requests from home cockpit users who wanted to be able to control the RAAS Master switch via their hardware rather than the main RAAS menu. For this function to work, there is a new option on the RAAS menu. ENABLE KEY EVENT API must be ticked. VERSION 1- Fixes issue with the FSX Steam version of RAAS not being able to connect to the Flight Simulator under certain circumstances. VERSION 1- Fixes crash when attempting to host a multiplayer session in Steam FSX. 2- Installer updated to correct an issue that resulted in the installer not being able to detect the location of Steam FSX if the "stand-alone" Steam FSX option was selected. VERSION 1- Fixes potential issue associated with the Steam version of FSX and Simconnect. VERSION 1- Adds FSX: Steam support. VERSION 1- Fixes P3D 2.4 crash 2- Adds new option to route RAAS audio to any audio device on your system (this is great for Home Cockpit builders). VERSION 1- Installer supports P3D Version 2+ 2- Unlocked version supports the new Aerosoft Airbus X Models (A318 and A319) 3- New option to disable the automatic internet version check. (In some rare cases, we believe this update check may have been a factor in causing RAAS not to load under select circumstances, especially with PMDG 777 users.) VERSION 1- SDK RELEASED. The RAAS SDK allows third party developer to integrate RAAS directly into their aircraft. Important: This document is for experienced flight simulator programmers only. If you are a commercial 3rd party aircraft developer, and you wish to license RAAS, please PM me. 2- RAAS code updated to function with SDK. 3- Fixed an issue where RAAS could make improper calls on complex, multiple runway airports such as SFO. VERSION 1- Fixed an issue whereby the excessive approach speed call was incorrectly using ground speed, not indicated air speed. 2- Updated the logic so that an 'unstable' call will not play during approach unless a previous warning (like 'flaps', 'excessive speed' or 'approach angle' ) was played first. 3- Removed the Scenery.CFG check as it caused hangs for some users. Users must remember to run 'Make Runways' anything they update their scenery. 4- Updated the installer so that RAAS Professional users cannot accidently installed the 'locked' version of RAAS that ships with the Airbus Extended X. 5- Updated the uninstaller so as to preserve users' other 3rd party DLL.XML entries created after RAAS was installed. 6- 'On Runway' call will no longer play if unchecked. VERSION 1- Fixed an issue preventing the Master Switch from being saved properly. VERSION 1- Fixed a potential issue that would prevent users from being able to input minimum flap settings with select aircraft. SERVICE UPDATE 1: 1- To some users RAASPRO.DLL couldnt be loaded by FS9, the reason is that a single line of code was causing RAASPRO.DLL to ALWAYS depend on SIMCONNECT.DLL even if it's a FS9 ONLY installation or FSX/P3D. So if you have FS9/FSX installed in a single machine, with previous versions there were NO problems due to the fact that SIMCONNECT.DLL was always present, but on FS9 ONLY machines, SIMCONNECT.DLL is missing and RAASPRO.DLL could not find that DLL, as a result FS9 will ALWAYS say: "flight Simulator couldn't load aircraft or software...". 2- When NO LINKED/ASSOCIATED profile is found for the CURRENT aircraft, RAASPRO will be AUTOMATICALLY *TURN OFF*, otherwise if an ASSOCIATED/LINKED profile is found RAASPRO will be AUTOMATICALLY *TURN ON*. This fixes the issue of having any other plane like a cessana NOT associated with ANY profile and RAASPRO ON. 3- Fixes EDDF RUNWAY 18 issue, the fact that RUNWAY 18 has a SINGLE RUNWAY DESIGNATOR, as there is NO RUNWAY 36, that caused RAASPRO to NOT recognizing that runway, NOW RAASPRO detects runways having a SINGLE runway designator and CREATES (virtually) a FAKE runway ID, which for RUNWAY 18 would be RUNWAY 36. This would happen with EVERY RUNWAY having a SINGLE designator, so NO NEED TO CHANGE/MODIFY R4.CSV database file. 4- Fixes Altimeter Call associated with the Transition Altitude. 5- Other small fixes. Best,
  16. Any chance the OC product update feature can just identify the actual product/s installed and version/s of that product and only update the specific files for it? Up until present, the OC updates ALL products and ALL versions despite the fact I only have the NGX, 777 and 747 and only the FSX version of each. The D/L time is elongated and unnecessary given I don't have ALL products and ALL versions. Much appreciated. Steve
  17. GTN Touch v2.2.3 is now released and includes the following changes: New: Radios support both 25hz and 8.33hz COM spacing. Bug: acquiring GPS when flying in the South hemisphere. The GTN will now acquire the GPS properly when at YMML for example! Please note 8.33Hz COM spacing requires X-Plane 10, otherwise, our implementation falls back to 25Hz in XP9.
  18. I'm pleased to officially announce the release of the v2.2.2 update! We've been hard at work in including a lot of new features in this version: New: GTN 750 displays navigation charts! (where available). New: GTN Audio Panel synchronizes fully with X-Plane audio panel. New: GTN Controls X-Plane COM and NAV volume. New: GTN COM TX/RX flags now supports the latest PilotEdge datarefs. New: GTN Wind Vector map user field is now functional. New: GTNDBFILE environment variable to select alternate database file. Enhanced Ryan 9900BX TCAD to be less prone to spurious traffic alerts. About the charts: the Garmin GTN Trainer includes about 1000+ charts for various airports mostly in the USA. These include airport, approaches etc... This is a great feature which overlays the geo referenced chart on top of the base map! About the audio panel: previous versions were connected to X-Plane but only in one direction, that is any change in the GTN audio panel changes X-Plane audio panel. V2.2.2 now synchronizes in both directions! This is very handy when having 2 GTN 750 with audio panel enabled, as any change in one reflects in the other! About the COM/NAV volume: the GTN volume knob located to the upper left corner is now functional in X-Plane and controls the respective volumes. This will come very handy with the updated PIlotEdge client which supports X-Plane volume controls as well! About the TX/RX flags: the previous version included support for the basic PIlotEdge datarefs which signal TX and RX status. V2.2.2 improves on this and now offers support for the latest PilotEdge datarefs with separate COMNAV1 and COMNAV2 flags! Last but not least: Reality XP installers and products have been using an 'autoupdate' system for nearly a decade now. This system prompts you whenever a new version is available when you start any of our product, or when you select the corresponding option in the installer. We'd very much like you let us know if you are actually receiving such notifications!
  19. Attention PMDG 777 drivers: Version 3 has been released! Change log is here (first post). http://www.avsim.com/topic/455405-5-july-2016-version-21-for-the-pmdg-777-released/?p=3113935

  22. Hello @ll, CropDuster X 2.00 has been released today! The green overlay effect for fields has been replaced by fully 3D models of rows of crops in different sizes and accuracy (you can simulate every single beanstalk if you want) It has inherited the spray control dialog and gauge from FireFighter X, adapted for crop dusting. Options have been added to make CropDuster X more suitable to spraying fields that are already there in scenery and with planes that have their own spray effects: defining the corners of custom fields has been made easier the app has a built-in database that you can use for your fields you can turn off various visual aspects of the app so they don't interfere with the visuals The app will control the "smoke effect" if you prefer that to the CropDuster X effects.

However, the latest GTN trainer 6.21 database files are different and no longer work. Before installing the new Garmin trainer v6.21, you might want to save a copy of your GTN Trainer DB files for later! You can read more information here: https://www.avsim.com/topic/501135-rxp-gns-530w430w-v2-database-update/ GTN Failure Annunciations For those not wanting to read the whole manual again, here is the new chapter about the failures. The GTN plugin uses the following datarefs as failures sources "sim/operation/failures/rel_gps", "sim/operation/failures/rel_g430_gps1" Satellite reception failure, displays "No GPS Position" "sim/operation/failures/rel_gp" Differential GPS failure, reduces location accuracy. Satellite reception mode switches to 3D instead of 3D-Diff." "sim/operation/failures/rel_com1" COM radios failure only. "sim/operation/failures/rel_nav1" NAV radios failure only. "sim/operation/failures/rel_navcom1" Both COM and NAV radios failure. "sim/operation/failures/rel_xpndr" Transponder failure. "sim/operation/failures/rel_marker" Audio Panel failure.
  24. There is a new release 1.6 The following enhancements/fixes Fix for Top Down View which showed odd looking shadows Metar shading is more responsible for first 30 seconds of a flight to better handle delayed injection by weather engines Metar Shading now applies to water and autogen Shadows are hidden when paused and aircraft casts shadow on self is not set Note that Aircraft Casts Shadow on Self is no longer essential for cloud shadows. Also adds a slider to set the cloud coverage at which the metar feature is first used. Note that the version available prior to 23:20 GMT failed to update v1.5 This was because there is a limit on the number of deltas that can be applied - the patching program didn't give an error but ignored 1.5 which was the last one added. If you received an error patching the libraries then to resolve it Uninstall Libraries using controller Uninstall cloud shadows and the fixer Reinstall the fixer Reinstall Cloud Shadows 1.6 Install the libraries
  25. Hi, I'm pleased to announce the official GTN v2.4 release! Most of you regular forum visitors mostly know what is new, but let me try to wrap it up in one place! Here are the release notes: New: Configuration Panel GUI. New: Import flight plans (Garmin .gfp format). New: Import user waypoints. New: Per-aircraft checklists (Garmin .ace format). New: Use stock X-Plane GPS buttons and knobs. Enhanced: User's manual new sections and corrections. Enhanced: Bug corrections and stability enhancements. A little bit more information: The GTN menu has completely changed now that we have the configuration panel GUI. We've also deactivated automatic updates and added a manual "Check Updates..." menu option instead. The configuration panel GUI is a great addition to the product. With its modern interface it makes editing the INI file a thing of the past. Import flight plan and user waypoints is very handy especially when using external flight planning tools. This works with the native Garmin .gfp format. The GTN installs a sample pack to get you started, along with a dedicated chapter in the user's manual. Per-aircraft checklists adds a new dimension to your flying experience. You can prepare you checklist files with the free Garmin Checklist editor and use them in your aircraft. The GTN installs a full-featured Cessna sample pack to get you started as well, worth the price of the GTN alone! Use stock X-Plane GPS buttons and knobs is neat and a first step toward better panel integration. Although it is most of use with our GNS V2 for X-Plane, we decided to add this capability to the GTN and we'll see how far you, our customers, drive this to! User's Manual: we've put additional efforts to the user's manual with more explanations, better pagination and proper sections. We encourage all of you to take the time to review and re-read the manual, not only to discover the new features listed above, but also to discover some of the features you might have missed! As always, you just need to download the e-commerce installers from our website, or use the downloaded file from the auto-update panel, and then re-install over your existing installation. [uPDATE] FEB21/18:00Z: The installers has been re-uploaded to fix a missing folder.
