Best value GNS530 by far! 10/10 recommend! Superb!

Ich bin voll zufrieden

Price fits. Shipping to Austria as cheap standard shipping 19 days (including customs in Vienna). In AT there is no customs duty, only 20% VAT. Device very well packed in a box. I use the GNS 530 in X-Plane 11 both with and without RXP software. Setup in X-Plane 11 for standard GNS and for RXP can be done well if you are a bit nerd about X-Plane 11. The feel of the device is good. I am satisfied, thank you, Wolfgang

Good quality, top notch support, great value.

The unit itself is really great - easily feels like it's worth more than the surprisingly cheap cost. Works well with MSFS. Plugin could use a little bit of work to deal with joystick order changes but honestly it's an unlikely problem. I did have issues getting it working initially due to some MSFS plugin clashes, and the email support I got was fantastic. Very quick turn-around, clear answers, had it working in no time. Great product!

Good, but could be better

It's basically a display with a VGA input you plug in to your video card. Then there the buttons that are keymapped onto the appropriate keyboard commands> Case looks good but CLUNKY, with screws sticking 1/4" out the back and piecewise assembly . Dumb idea to run cables out side but I understand because that's where the video card port exited. Running 32" 4K displays I can do much better just dragging the console unit off to the side. Needs to be a complete project to be successful!

Great product, but be prepared for some wasm module troubleshooting with MSFS.

The 530 unit itself is amazing, I can't recommend it enough. Screen is sharp and buttons feel real. The customer service is also top notch, with swift replies and fixes that work! If I had to be picky, the wasm modules for the new Microsoft Flight Simulator can be a bit hit and miss at times, as can be expected expected from beta software - however any issues with those have been very swiftly dealt with by customer service. I did not attempt to use the unit with any other simulator. I am one happy customer and I will be back to buy the G1000 when it comes out ;)

Great build

This is a really good and and well built device. It works great. I had a few questions and the feedback was excellent. The price is more then reasonable and this item as well as flightsimbuilder has exceeded expectations in every way imaginable.
