The SimFlyer team has announced the release of the GMXv1, its version of the Garmin GNS480/MX20 stack. Also included is the PMA8000 Audio Panel from PS-Engineering and the Garmin SL40 transceiver. 

Recognized for their ability to create high-end simulation environments, SimFlyer have regularly been adding new components that can help take your simulation experience to a whole new level. For some people, the mouse and keyboard just isn’t enough to make things feel real enough. For everyone who feels like that, using the SimFlyer GMXv1 system might be just what you are looking for instead.

This has been one of the most popular editions of this popular series of hardware, and brings the best functions possible to your usual flight simulation equipment. If you want to get the most realistic flight experience possible, this is the best way to get started.

Making use of the latest improvements to XML programming, the GMX v1 system makes it easier than ever to utilize the full power of the simulation experience without damaging your frame rate or your playability. This new system is completely compatible with both Flight Simulator 2004 and Flight Simulator X.

Every tiny addition has been included to help make the SimFlyer equivalent to the well-respected Garmin devices as realistic and effective as possible. It gives you realistic input and response from every function, and respond as accurately as is realistically possible with this type of tool.

Best of all, you get complete control over what sections of the unit you will install so you can broaden or limit your functionality quite rapidly. Let the simulator take care of some features? Or give yourself all the real tools and equipment that you would need to deal with in a real flight experience? It lets you take things up to that next level, giving you a wide array of combinations that can be improved.

Additionally, the GMXv1 system works with other GMX-related products allowing you to combine older and newer models for the finest blend of comfort and functionality possible. With the GMX v1, you also get access to additional bonuses such as more transponders, an audio panel and even a hand-held radio that makes using the game’s most enjoyable features easier than ever before!

Installation has been made easier than ever before, and the facilities used in the GMX v1 package will get you optimum response from your PC regardless of what operating system or PC style that you use. If you want to equip yourself with a versatile and effective piece of flight simulation equipment, this is a good place to get started!

To make this work, all you need to do is run the installer file provided and you will gain access to all the tools that you need – giving you full and complete registration instantly. Now, you can get involved in the flight simulation world in a way that you have never done so in the past.
