With the release of the TBM 850 version 2 update, some problems were created for the integration of Bert Pieke's GTN 750 mod. The biggest problem is not being able to use the autopilot panel in the VC, which means you lose the ability to set heading, altitude, etc..... As I absolutely love the GTN 750 mod, and didn't want to fly the TBM 850 without it, I created an update to fix the compatibility issue. I contacted Mr. Pieke, and he gave me his permission to distribute the fix/update to anyone who wants to use his GTN750 mod with the new Version 2 TBM850. NOTE: This is only an update for the GTN750 mod. If you don't have the original GTN750 mod for the TBM850, you need to contact Bert Pieke through PM to get it. The update enables you to use the autopilot panel in the VC again (as much as Carenado's autopilot works, anyways), and also adds compatibility with the updated shift+# pop-up windows. If you would like the update, please send me a PM with your email, and I will send you the update as soon as I can.
I recently purchased the Wilco TBM 850 for Pr3d v2. It installed ok and generally performs ok. However, there is one big problem that I have encountered: using the PFD or MFD to create an approach. I can select the type of approach such as an ILS, then when I want to choose the next type of fix or vectors, I can do that. Here is where the problem is: when I want to "activate the approach", it will not do anything and just sits there doing nothing. I wrote to Wilco support and they answered in a timely fashion. However, the answer they gave me did not seem to conform to be realistic. They told me to reinstall the aircraft and if that didn't work, to reinstall P3dv2. If everything is working ok except this particular function to activate an approach, what good would reinstalling anything do? If anyone else has this particular aircraft installed in P3dv2 and has it working properly, please let me know. At this point, I don't have a clue as to how to fix this, even if it can be fixed without a programming update from Wilco. I am running P3dv2 on Windows 8.1 Pro 64 bit and all the other aircraft that I have installed are working fine. So I doubt that it is P3dv2. Thanks to anyone who could provide some input on this. :unsure:
In terms of navdata within the G1000 and as it pertains to Australian data....it's not good at all. Missing many crucial points, and, even if they're listed in the MFD, they don't show up in the actual database when scrolling through. So, if I wanted to manually add navdata (ie waypoints, VOR's, etc) - is this achievable with the Carenado TBM850 G1000?
