The Garmin G1000 contains a lot of information, and it can take some time to know what information is available, where that information is located, and how to access the information. However, most of the available information is not required to use the G1000 for flight. Basic flight information such as attitude, airspeed, altitude, vertical speed, turn and bank indication, etc., is clearly presented without the user having to anything other than fly the aircraft. An advantage to this point is that the user can learn to use the G1000 to its full capacity while actually flying with it.
The fs2x G1000 offered here is a replication of the real world NAV III Garmin G1000. It was designed with the idea in mind that if the user can fly the fs2x G1000 they can fly the real world Garmin G1000. Functions include map pages, nearest Navaid pages, direct-to and multi-leg flight planning, system setup page, tracking vector, wind vectors, DME, NAV/COM and ADF radios, WAAS navigation capability, traffic, menus, popup windows, and waypoint information pages to name a few.
The fs2x G1000 has been designed especially for the FSX and FS9 default Cessna 208B Caravan. Smooth flying and realistic flight dynamics are included, and with the G1000 panel the old Caravan is a treat to fly. It is easy to fly with and can be flown by anyone, from the aspiring pilot to the seasoned veteran. Enjoy flying while learning about the new 'glass panel' era of GA.
