Awesome product!

I got this to practice using the new avionics in the rental fleet at my FBO for IFR training. It works exactly like the real thing, buttons feel great. Its an exact replica in size as the unit in the 182 I fly. As an OG that grew up on steam gauges this has helped me transition to TAA aircraft without all the cost of plane rental. Encoders are of good quality and it came with both mounting options (desktop stand or panel clamps).. Now want to get G1000 to train up to full glass cockpit.

Great product but tricky to set up

Great for VR

I was annoyed fumbling in VR with the mouse. This solved my problem. I keep saying a manufacturer should make layout specific parts without the screens. They'd probably be a lot cheaper. This is the next best thing. Love it.

Plugged it in, centered the gps into the screen with my mouse and started flying IFR within 2 minutes on XPlane. Absolutely love this unit. No set up required after the first time so it’s great to use every flight. Learning buttonology for IFR is critical and this unit is the perfect solution. Great quality buttons and hi-res screen. Make this unit a part of your pilot proficiency.

Great product but terrible installation instructions

The GNS 530 is a fine product at a low price. I also purchased the stand, and the online instructions for installing the 530 in the stand were outdated and completely obsolete. The stand instructions need to be updated, and photos or other illustrations included. That is why I gave the product 4 stars.

When I connected this to my HDMI port on my brand new gaming PC, and installed the software from flightsimbuilder web site, I couldn't get the app to recognize this product, so it's unusable for me.

When it works

When it connects it works as advertised! Outside of that it connects half the time and frustrating. I go through the same procedures every time too. I still like it though.
