Dies what it supposed to do. The only downside is that it is not the NXi version.
G1000 PFD/MFD - Great Product
I built a desktop simulator last year, using the G430 from RealSimgear. I was so impressed with the quality and technical support for this product that I decided to take the plunge and buy the G1000 set (PFD/MFD/Audio Panel) from them for my C172 project (using a real C172 cockpit) The end result is stunning and the G1000 panels added a level of realism that is absolutely fantastic. I am running Xplane 11 on the simulator which makes the G1000 experience about 90% accurate. (It would have been nice if there were 3rd party plugins for Xplane to make the ReaSimgear G1000 100% realistic like the plugin I have for the RealSimgear G430 from Reality XP) But, overall, yet another great product and a happy customer!
Perfection, but with a big flaw
Let me join the other enthusiastic reviewers: the G1000 performs as well as advertised - but let me point out a big flaw that must be addressed: the screen is very bright, as advertised, meaning that it becomes far too blinding during night flying. I'm told that there is no easy solution, as the currently installed G1000's panel backlighting offers no dimming facility. I offer two suggestions: - short term, get a grey tinted plexiglas panel of the exact screen size, easy to set and to remove (Velcro?) - it may not look too nice, but it would solve the problem; - long term, it should not be rocket science to make that panel dimmable ex-factory. ...and it's the only flaw I noticed, the rest is perfect.
Hi Alvaro, Sorry for the very long delay in this, but it is possible to dim the display using the panel brightness control in X-Plane itself, have you tried that?
This is essential equipment if you want to fly planes in MSFS with a glass cockpit.
I stumbled on this product by accident, and it has changed everything! I find the glass cockpits on MSFS hard to use. Compared to traditional cockpits with an HSI/VOR and a radio/nav stack, there is a lot more use of tiny buttons and knobs that make flying the plane an unpleasant experience. This product provides the true look and feel and thanks to the physical buttons it is as easy to use as in a real plane. I bought four of these devices for two pilot/co-pilot setups (using 4 PCs), and I couldn’t be happier with the result. One unit failed on its first day, but the RealSimGear support person was helpful, competent, and handled the problem very quickly; I’m awaiting the replacement. For a single pilot setup, one of these would be very helpful, and of course, two of them would be ideal. If you order one or two of these, make sure that you order the stand(s). It is heavy and solid; it would be a mistake to order the unit without a stand.
No Apple silicon native support
Easy to set up hardware; just plug in standard connections, minimal setup with the display, and run the installer. A few issues I came across that should probably be addressed on MacOS and X-plane 1) If you only have one panel, the installer doesn’t give the option to only install one bezel in to x-plane, so you have to do this manually. I.e my display is the PFD, but I still want the MFD to show its buttons on my extra monitor. 2) The X-plane plug-in does NOT work in Apple silicon native X-Plane. This is not mentioned anywhere that I could find until you look at the plug-in’s readme after it’s installed. You have to run X-Plane through Rosetta. 3) There seems to be no easy way to get rid of the title bar in the X-Plane pop-out window that is moved to the display. As a result, you’ll always see it on the screen.
I am doing my instrument rating in a G1000 equipped Piper TX and agonised over whether to spend the money to buy the RSG G1000 given the cost of shipping from the US, weak AUD$ and tax that I have to add on when it lands here. I finally cracked and bought it based on my logic that given the cost of my nav flights, the G1000 is equivalent to about 2-3 flights in the real plane. If I can improve my real flight piloting using the sim, then it would pay for itself pretty quickly. Bottom line, it has transformed my sim experience and I have demoed it to a few flying buddies who have all drooled over it with envy! I should be getting a sales commission from RSG given a couple are likely to place orders over the coming weeks!
