Flight One Software has released the GNS 430 and GNS 530 avionics packages for FSX and Prepar3D.
Based on the GTN Series, Flight1 has produced the GNS avionics with such detail, that they are nearly identical to their real-world counterparts.
The GNS 430 and GNS 530 series gauges have lead the industry with multitasking, integrated avionics and cutting edge WAAS navigation for many years. A single GNS 430 or GNS 530 functions as a communications radio (COMM), a VOR/ILS/GS receiver (NAV), and a moving map GPS. Combining one of each makes a common dual-GPS avionics suite for IFR-certified aircraft.
The Flight1 GNS Avionics Series doesn’t use FSX/P3D internal processes. All avionics data structures and calculations are performed using external processes that are separate from FSX/P3D. This results in a smoother simulation experience with a minimal impact on framerates or VAS.
The GNS Series avionics feature high-contrast color displays, built-in terrain and navigation databases to provide you with a clear, concise picture of where you are and where you are heading. A detailed basemap shows airports, cities, highways, railroads, rivers, lakes, coastlines, along with color coded gauge displays that graphically alert you when proximity conflicts loom ahead.
The GNS system also includes full WAAS approach support to fly LPV glideslope approaches, Terrain Proximity Warnings and Terrain Awareness and Warning System (TAWS) alerting. The package has full NAVCOM integration along with a GNS Gauge Configuration Utility and Stack Gauge Controller. For those who currently use the “other” GNS Series system out there, our GNS Config Tool will replace them with ease in both 2d cockpit and VC panel modes.
