GPS (Reality-XP vs flight1)

Post john.downen.1 »

Hello all, I am looking at getting a payware GPS and I would like to go with the GTN 650 - 750 from Reality-XP for a cheaper price but the configurator only lists them for Flight1. My question is. Will the Reality-XP GPS work for these planes or is it a code thing?

Any help would be appreciated.

Thank you

John

Hello John,

Although the Aircraft Configurator for the 172 doesn't yet include the RXP 750 and 650 (these units were released after the 172) it should be possible to get them to work just fine.

First of all, use the A2A Aircraft Configurator to select the Flight1 GTN option. Then, once you've installed the RXP units, use the RealityXP "setup aircraft" tool to detect and replace the F1 gauge entries with RXP ones. This option is available from the P3D top menu, and should look something like this. Note that you need to select the "no bezel" option for the VC as shown.

A second, optional, step is required to enable the bezel buttons and rotary control. For more information on the end-user workaround which was developed, please refer to this post by 'BillS511' on RXP's support forum. RXP's forum on Avsim is a very useful source of info, and you can also check out the info in this post by Bill too.

Thanks,
Nick

This worked like a charm for the Comanche as well. Thank you!

Deleting my post as it is not applicable to the C172. Sorry about that
