Can I use G1000/GNS 530 with planes which have different set of avionics (i.e. G3000) or airliners?
Certainly, this feature sets our products apart from competitors. We have designed all our products with a strong emphasis on flexibility and expandability.
They are universally recognized as joysticks by operating systems such as Windows, Mac, and Linux, allowing users to map various functions to buttons or encoders as desired. Furthermore, our products are compatible with a wide range of flight simulators, including DCS, and offer easy mapping options.
Once you pop out the avionics you would like to use, you would next need to map the functions you would like to use to buttons and knobs on the unit. For X-Plane users, all mapping functionalities are readily accessible through the control menu. However, for Microsoft Flight Simulator 2020, an additional add-on, such as Mobiflight (which is available for free) or SPAD.NEXT, is required to facilitate the mapping process. We provide a concise instructional video demonstrating this process here FlightSimBuilder G1000 with Mobiflight
What are the required ports for my PC? Each unit requires one HDMI and one USB port for connectivity.
What if I lack sufficient HDMI ports? There are typically two solutions available: Option 1: If your motherboard includes an HDMI port, you can utilize it; however, this port is frequently disabled once a video card is installed. You can re-enable it in the BIOS. Refer to your specific motherboard's instructions for guidance on enabling the built-in HDMI port. Option 2: Consider using a USB to HDMI adapter. It is advisable to invest in a higher-quality adapter, as cheaper alternatives often encounter issues. We can recommend this USB to two HDMI adapter for optimal performance USB to two HDMI adapter
