The RealSimGear GNS530 is an ultra realistic replica of the Garmin GNS530, which works with all popular flight simulators such as Microsoft Flight Simulator X (Steam Edition), Prepar3D and X-Plane 11. It is not only a great addition to your cockpit, but also the best way to master the functionalities of the GNS530, for example, when you are following a flying training course.
It is important to know that when using FSX or Prepar3D, in addition to the RealSimGear plugin, you will also need additional software from Reality XP or Mindstar Aviation. For X-Plane 11, installation of the plugin is sufficient.
Just like 'in real life', the GNS has a 5-inch (12.7 cm) LCD screen, which can be connected to the computer via HDMI (cable not included). This screen can be used to display the 'pop-out' of your GNS530 from your flightsim.
The high-quality rubber rotary and push buttons give a realistic feeling when, for example, you change your radio frequencies, or when you program your flight plan or approach in the computer.
Installation of the Garmin 530 is very easy. Because all RealSimGear products are delivered ready-made it is not necessary to assemble them for use. It's a matter of connecting, installing and configuring the software, and flying away.
If you do not install the GNS in a cockpit panel, we recommend ordering the desktop stand with you. This stable steel stand has anti-slip feet and ensures that you can operate the hardware properly.
The GNS530 comes standard with a US-EU adapter because RealSimGear products are supplied with an American power adapter.
