Nice update to the GTN trainer. Garmin has been listening to requests. Thank you Garmin for improving an already great product. :thumbup:

Russ,

What changes do you see?
Still no QWERTY keyboard?

The new trainer is certainly improved. It now has a GTN 650 mode for those interested.

I haven't played with it much, but it does allow pinch to zoom on the map...long overdue.

The old iPad Trainer had a 650 mode too but it was clunky to change. You had to go into the Settings app and find the Trainer and do it there.

You can now change heading, airspeed and altitude easily. Makes flying approaches more realistic.

The Visual Approach feature is what I was looking forward to. The Trainer allows lots of button pushing to get familiar with the various methods of activating it. The Flight Control feature is great, especially being able to change heading for intercepts, etc.

Thank you so much for letting BT’ers know about this. GARMIN owes you as they continue to be waaaay short on customer communications.

Hello Ben,
my apologies as I don't follow the portable talk threads very often. fortunately some of our very smart people here at Garmin do and pointed me to some answers for you. here is the link to the PC trainer for the GTN series of units.

let me know if there are any questions,

Trek, are there plans to make this work for the touch screen IPad? It would be helpful to have both the IPad versions of the GTN and G500 TXi talk to each other so you can load and fly a simulated approach using the touch screen features of the IPad!

It can be done. Avidyne did it very well with their IFD trainer and the IFD 100. IFD 540 trainer on iPad mini #1 and IFD 100 on iPad mini #2. Both talk to each other seamlessly.

Trek,

Much appreciated! I was just using the prior version today, which is looking kinda long of tooth. Looking forward to the update!
