Cannot get the Reality 530 to appear in the C182. Although it is selected in the A2A aircraft configuration file and the Reality GNS WAAS
configuration shows the 530 GPS selected. I am only see the default jobs. Oddly the gauge works perfectly with the 172 & Comanche as
well as three Realair aircraft. Have also tried a fresh installation...no joy.
Appreciate any suggestions.

Have you selected the GPS in the Shift-3 menu?

Further to this issue of mine my sim objects/ A2A c182 aircraft folder only contains 2 configuration settings,
namely RXPGNS & FIGTN, and no default or dual settings, and in the panel folder no CFG panels referring to
RXP_430 or RXP_530. Owning the vast majority of A2A aircraft for both FSX and P3D, it happens that the
FSX C182 is the only purchase not made through A2A, but a purchase made with FSS.!!!

Hello,

are you all updated with the Accu-sim updater and also running the aircraft config as admin via right click and selecting run as admin?

thanks,
Lewis

Hi Lewis
Yes always "running as admin" and using the a2a aircraft configurator plus the reality XP configurator. I am convinced
that the FSS download is deficient of pertinent files to deploy the gauges. see my previous comments.

you shouldnt need to run any RXP config from memory as this would add things not needed to the files.

thanks,
Lewis

I am conversant with adding the RXP gauges to the A2A aircraft, both the C172
and Comanche work perfectly. My problem lies with the Flightsim Store A2A C182
download, which is lacking items which are included in the C172 and commanche
downloads :-
Examples of items C182 Aircraft folder

C182 Aircraft folder
RXPGNS config setting

C182 panel folder
RXPSTACK config setting
---------------------------------
C172 & Comanche Aircraft folder
RXPGNS config setting
RXPGNS_default config setting
RXPGNS_dual config setting

C172 & Comanche panel folder
panel_RXP_430 CFG file
panel_RXP_530 CFG file
panel_RXP_dual CFG file
RXPSTACK config setting

Hi Mike,

It might be worth you 'forcing' an update of the 182 installed files. To do this, please delete the following file...

C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Games\Microsoft Flight Simulator X\A2A\Cessna182\Update_fsx\client.wyc

...then run the most recent Accu-Sim update again.

Thanks,
Nick

You're welcome Mike - sounds like the installation wasn't properly updated, perhaps because of a previous reinstallation. The extra avionics configs were added as part of a post-release update if I recall correctly.

Cheers,
Nick

I want to put in my thanks as well! After trolling around here for awhile I was able to get my RXP530 up and running in that shiny new Comanche in the hangar! I've only had it for a week, but MAN, what a plane! Congrats to all who were part of that work of art!
