FSUIP and Garmin GPSmap 196


Recommended Posts

Pete

First can I say thank you for an excellent product and I do also enjoy the wit in your answers to questions in the forum.

I've seen in some previous posts questions around Garmin moving map products and FSUIP (specifically gpsout). For anyone who has a Garmin GPSMap 196 or 296 you can link this to FSX using FSUIP and have the aircraft in FSX showing on the Garmin Moving map. Which then means you can practice with this GPS whilst sat on the ground (Fantastic for working out how the unit works).

The settings are below:

On the GPS:

Connect to your serial port using the cable provided.

Press menu threee times and select start simulator (press enter)

Press the up arrow to select "setup"

Press the right arrow until you get to the "Interface" tab

"Select Aviation In"

On FSUIP

Select the GPS out tab

Untick all the settings except AV400

Tick the "Check here to enable GPSout" box

Select the com port (Mines on Com 1)

Thats it

Happy flying :D

Thanks!

I guess the same settings for GSPout under FS2004 and before should work too!
