News! - Aircraft Update : G1000 system update by Carenado/Alabeo




Now you may have to make your coffee before you load up a Carenado/Alabeo aircraft. New complex systems are always going to have issues and none more than FMC/GPS systems. Carenado's very ambitious G1000 was a case in point. Early versions were a "go and make a cup off coffee" while it loaded and the system was not very efficient, certainly in the MAP view and programming the routes was a bit heavy going.

Things looked up with the TBM850 as that G1000 version was a real step forward, but not completely perfect...


Now Carenado has released a full update of a completely revised G1000 system with version 3.3, and the aircraft affected are:


CT182T Skylane G1000 X-Plane
CT206H Stationair G1000 Extension Pack X-Plane
SR22 GTSx X-Plane
TBM850 X-Plane

DA42 Twin Star X-Plane


Changes are really significant as noted by Carenado below, I haven't had a chance to run an aircraft yet, but will do so over the next few days.


Changelog is:


-Almost instantaneous database load time (compared to 40-50 seconds before)
-Database is now handled in a separate binary plugin, separating it from other logic in the plane.
-Back-end is now more similar to how the default GNS430/530 handle the database.
-Compatible with Navigraph updates to the GNS430 Custom Data waypoint and navaid files.
-Numerous optimizations to minimize FPS hit during certain conditions
-Improved file compatibility with file plans generated in 3rd party apps
-Smoother/snappier navigation and data entry
-Increased stability and improved initialization logic (especially from cold and dark)
-Better handling of ambiguous locations for waypoints with duplicate names, both when entering a flight plan and when loading an .fms flight plan from file.
-Higher resolution moving map
-Numerous minor fixes (wind indicator, GS, engine indicators, visual glitches in applicable planes)
-Improved "Core" vs. "Custom" G1000 architecture, keeping all core functions of the G1000 more similar and unified across multiple aircraft.


Carenado - Alabeo Support is on the X-Plane.Org: Carenado - Alabeo Support
