This ALL NEW VERSION of the SimFlyer® GNS430/530 series has been developed in XML format and designed to extract the information needed to function directly from your MSFS 2004 GPS data files. This makes the gauges operate much faster than some other GPS gauges on the market today. As with any flight simulation project the balance between realism and functionality is not always easy to accomplish. This product has faithfully reproduce the correct look and feel of the real world units while working within the constraints of the MSFS environment.

Are you looking for a high quality add-on for Microsoft Flight Simulator? Look no further. SimFlyer has just released the Garmin GNS-SX series. This avionics expansion pack includes the GNS 530 and GNS 430 and can be bought online. SimFlyer is a market leader in simulations and has been in this business for over eight years. This full package has been designed by in house XML programmers and tested by real pilots. It is fully compatible with FS2004 and FSX.

The frame rates are impressive and the gauges are very smooth. This package comes with a TCAS equipped GNS530, GMA340 audio panel, GNS430 GPS NAV/COM, GTX330 transponder, GNS530 GPS NAV/COM, and MD300-206 VOR heads.
