C172 A2A P3D - GNS 400 Manual

Post bravodeltafr »

Hello,
I can't use the GNS 400 of my C172, especially because I do not know how to use the various buttons, how to navigate between the menus, how to write for example a waypoint to navigate.
Is there a specific tutorial to use the A2A GNS 400 for P3D ?

And then, In the C172 configurator, I setted in the Defaut / P3DGPS. Is it possible to use another GPS as proposed (Reality XP, or Flight One). Are they commercial add-ons or not ?

Thanks for your help !

There's no specific A2A tutorial, that I know of. You can find free Garmin manuals online, and they even offer a downloadable "trainer". This link may help: https://static.garmincdn.com/pumac/GPS4 ... sGuide.pdf

As to an after market GPS, if you own the Reality or Flight1, the configurator enables you to add it to your panel. I'm not a big GPS user, so I've always managed with the default.

This GPS unit comes with the flight simulator software. You may be best served reading the flight sim documentation.

This might help, although I didn't read through the whole thing. It also covers some of the other units. https://manualmachine.com/garmin/gns400 ... er-manual/
Take care, Brett

Hello,

the default GPS is the platforms default GPS. To learn the usage of it you will want to refer to your FSX or P3D manuals and learning center.

thanks,
