New navigation database – North America

A new navigation database is available for North America, including Canada, USA, Mexico, the Caribbean, and central american countries. The database can be download either by using the Simgeneering setup utility or the database download function in the G1000 simulator, see the setup guide.

This database replaces the existing USA database, so if you download the North America database you should manually remove the USA database afterwards. To do this, delete the /data/USA/ directory from the G1000 simulator main directory. Then in the config.xml file, delete the USA database descriptor:


Flying an Approach Using the Simgeneering G1000 Simulator

This new video tutorial shows how to use the Simgeneering Primary Flight Display (PFD) and Multifunction Flight Display (MFD) to fly an ILS approach. This demonstrates some of the functions of the PFD and MFD including tuning the nav radio, loading an approach, following GPS and localizer courses, and using the autopilot.

G1000 Primary Flight Display Now Available!

The G1000 Primary Flight Display (PFD) module is included in the latest version 1.7.0 of the Simgeneering G1000 Simulator software (purchase of a separate licence for the PFD module is required). Together with the Multifunction Display Module and Engine Display Module this provides a complete G1000 simulation. See the description page for further information.

Change to SPAD.Next

The latest version of SPAD.Next contains a change that means that the Simgeneering G1000 software can no longer connect to SPAD.Next. An update of the Simgeneering software will be made in the coming weeks however there is a temporary solution to continue to use SPAD.Next with the G1000 simulator.

In SPAD.Next, go to Settings->Application Settings->MSFS 2020 and turn on “MSFS:Enable FlyByWire CDU websocket”, see below:

Next, go into the config.xml file in the G1000 simulator directory and change the setting <SPADNEXTPORT> to 8088, and save the file. The G1000 simulator should now work again with SPAD.Next. Please contact if you have any further questions.
