Intro

Welcome to the Early Access Beta of our G1000 NXi for Microsoft Flight Simulator.
This package replaces the stock G1000 in planes that use that panel package with a new G1000 NXi, written from the ground up by Working Title Simulations.

This is an early access beta and there are many features of the real-world unit that have not yet been implemented, and you will surely find more than a few bugs here and there. It is our intention to keep a cadence of weekly or bi-weekly updates for this package, so we will be quickly adding features as well as squashing bugs that our wider open-beta audience help identify.

Let’s reiterate – this is an early-access beta, released with the intent to help find bugs with the existing code as quickly as possible – if you find that it doesn’t work well for you, simply uninstall the package and use the default G1000 instrument.

Attention!

This package is exclusively offered via the ingame Marketplace – go there to download the latest version.
Because of the update cadence, we will maintain the dedicated changelog for each update here on the packages.workingtitle.aero site.

We are asking everyone that downloads this package to help us make it better. You can do that by logging genuine bugs with the features we’ve implemented in our Discord server in the dedicated #nxi-early-access channel.

But…we need your help to make this work – we do NOT need you to report missing features. We have the manual, we have the official Garmin trainer, we have real-world NXi examples, so we know what features we haven’t implemented. What we NEED is to know about bugs that you encounter with the features we HAVE implemented. Please, please, please limit your feedback to bugs, issues or problems you encounter with existing features. Thanks!

Working Title G1000 NXi Discussion Thread

Hi all,

Feel free to post here about the new early access Working Title G1000 NXi that can be found on the Marketplace. I’ll keep this updated with the latest release notes and information. A reminder, since this is early access, you can expect missing features, bugs, or both! Please help us make the sim better by testing it out.

You can find us on our Discord at https://discord.gg/T6m24uz

New Features

MAP

  • Adds MFD Traffic Map with user config settings.
  • Adds the map declutter indicator.

FMS

  • Adds all IAFs as selectable transitions for approaches
  • Added visual approaches for all runways at all airports.
  • Allows the creation of holds for origin, destination, runways, visual fixes.
  • Allows the creation of Direct To Existing to runways or visual approach fixes.
  • Cleanup of hold depiction in the flight plan page – removes a duplicate fix after some holds when it shouldn’t appear, sets the hold (specifically HF leg only) to display grey when not active.
  • Allows deleting any legs after the destination fix (airport or runway) so that holds can be deleted from the destination segment.
  • Improve display of approaches in Select Approach and FPL
  • Improves handling of adding approaches, including adding the destination airport to the enroute legs when appropriate.
  • Improves handling of adding procedures when a direct to destination is currently active.

PFD

  • Adds OBS Feature for GPS Waypoints.
  • Improved PFD NRST page: now properly hides empty lines, displays a message when no airports are within 200NM, generally improved styling and data accuracy.

MFD

  • Adds MFD Page Select infrastructure.
  • Adds OBS depiction to the map.

Issues Resolved

  • Fixes issue where the FAF altitude for visual approaches was calculated incorrectly.
  • Fixes bug where VOR tracking would fail near the VOR station.
  • Fixes issue where VNAV would not set the captured altitude until within 20’ - adjusted to set the captured altitude when within 250’.
  • Fixes issue where VNAV Window on the MFD would show incorrect signs for deviation, VS Target and VS Required.
  • Fixes issue where the GPS DRIVES NAV1 event was not processed and reported back to hardware correctly.
  • Fixes issue where sometimes the hold menu could freeze when changing the time.
  • Fixes numerous issues with K Events, including a protection for the default VS behavior on the Honeycomb Bravo.
  • Fixes display issues with the procedure sequence preview.
  • Fixes issue with bearing pointer overflow in cases where the target waypoint is 5 chars.
  • Fixes issue where LOC tracking was oversensitive and sometimes caused more hunting than is realistic at higher speeds.
  • Fixes issue with GPS bearing pointers displaying incorrect data.
  • Fixes left bearing pointer fix name overflowing
  • Fixes bug where the PFD inset map does not always reflect the selected orientation.
  • Fixes issues where sometimes GPS or NAV would not activate when it should (eased all capture requirements to 110 degrees from DTK and 60% CDI deflection).
  • Fixes issue where deleting a hold leg would incorrectly always sequence you past the hold leg
  • Fixes auto-tuning so it will put the LOC freq into both actives for Nav1 and Nav2 (unless one of them is the selected CDI source). CDI source auto-switch will switch to whichever Nav source is actively tuned to the appropriate frequency, preferring Nav1 if both are tuned.

Known Issues

  • Outer large COM knob only reduces frequency no matter the direction the knob is turned. This is an issue with the cockpit panel behaviors in the sim and has been logged with the MSFS team, but will not be able to be addressed in the NXi package as it is an issue with the base planes.
  • Sometimes the flight plan loading from the world map screen is loaded incompletely; this can usually be solved by restarting the flight - we are working on nailing this down.
  • World Map imports from Navigraph and Simbrief do not include airways, so airways will not be added to the G1000 NXi flight plan when the plan was imported to the World Map from one of these sources.
  • External camera view HUD does not sync properly with the NXi and may show strange or incorrect data. We expect to be able to resolve this after Sim Update 6.
  • Hardware autopilot peripherals may display the selected altitude as 99000. If you can configure it, you must set the altitude to read from index/slot 1 instead of index/slot 0. If it is not possible to configure using the manufacturer software, you may be able to configure it using third party software such as AxisAndOhs, Mobiflight, or spad.next. We expect to be able to remove this workaround after Sim Update 6.
  • Invert flight plan has been temporarily disabled and will make a return in the next version.

Heads Up!

  • GPS, LOC, and VOR modes now ARM! Be aware that you will need to be on an intercept course and within capture distance of the desired flight path before those modes will become active.
  • The GPS flight plan sequencing will enter SUSP under the following conditions: when reaching a manual termination leg (holds, manual sequence) and when reaching the final leg of the plan. This is actually correct behavior. To exit out of SUSP (for example, if you got to the end of a plan and then loaded more waypoints), hit the SUSP softkey in the middle of the PFD.
  • Changing the CDI source drops the autopilot into ROL mode. This is the correct behavior, intended to keep the airplane held in the same attitude until the pilot reselects appropriate guidance.
  • When exiting a hold, do not delete the HOLD as it will cause flight plan issues. Press the SUSP key to continue with the flight plan sequence or go direct to another fix.
  • The NXi’s traffic advisory system (TAS) will now start in STANDBY mode by default. While in this mode it will not issue any advisories nor will traffic be displayed on any maps. You can manually switch TAS to OPERATING mode through the MFD Traffic Map page (use the MFD FMS knobs to change the open MFD page).

Autopilot Hardware

The autopilot has been completely overhauled with 0.5.0, which includes some workarounds for altitude capture until such time that the sim supports the disabling of it’s own capture. This includes setting the altitude slot to slot 3 and setting the selected altitude to 99000 so it will never be captured, and using slot 1 as it should be for the preselector.

For hardware controls that control the altitude preselector, they must be configured to read and write to altitude slot 1, not altitude slot 0 (which really just reads/writes to them all, and will override all the custom AP altitude selections). If it is not possible to configure your hardware in this way, you will unfortunately have to either remove the hardware or remove the NXi. The are also third party softwares like AxisAndOhs, Mobiflight, and spad.Next that can allow you to bridge this gap if the manufacturer default software cannot.

We expect this workaround will no longer be necessary after Sim Update 6.

A Comprehensive Guide to Garmin G1000 NXi

The Garmin G1000 NXi is the latest update of one of the most successful avionics systems ever created. The Garmin G1000 first entered the market in June of 2004, where it was delivered in a Diamond DA40. At the time, Garmin was becoming firmly established as leaders in GPS technology and was primarily focused on the piston aircraft market.

However, in November of 2007, they made a major step into the business aviation retrofit market when their STC for the King Air C90 series was approved. The retrofit was so successful that Garmin decided to seek STC approval for the King Air 200 series, which was approved in March of 2009, and then later the 300/350 in May of 2012. To date, the Garmin G1000 or G1000 NXi has been installed in more than 20,000 airplanes worldwide and nearly 700 King Airs. At Elliott Aviation, we’ve installed more Garmin G1000 and G1000 NXi systems in King Airs than all other dealers in the world combined. Find out more about our G1000 NXi installations here.

The Garmin G1000 NXi for the King Air is the most advanced flight deck available for the King Air. It combines zero-time avionics with new glass displays, smooth flight control, and HSI mapping. It enables WAAS/LPV approaches to thousands of airports with an autopilot-coupled glide path to selected minimums. Garmin’s Connext™ connectivity also gives you voice calling, text messaging, and database and flight transfers to your mobile device.

At Elliott Aviation, not only do we have the most G1000 NXi experience, but we offer several advantages over other dealers. We offer a three-week guaranteed downtime on all standalone Garmin G1000 NXi installations. We also offer free ground familiarization with your new avionics using our in-house King Air G1000 NXi demonstrator. We also have free flight familiarization during your aircraft delivery. All of our installations also include an optional installation of our STC of the Mid-Continent MD302 LCD standby attitude module (SAM). The MD302 is a self-contained standby instrument that provides attitude, altitude, airspeed, and slip information. Our company is an Authorized Service Facility (ASF) for King Airs, and we have been working on King Airs since they rolled off the assembly line in 1964. Find out more about our King Air experience here. In addition to Garmin G1000 NXi upgrades for the King Air, we also offer G1000 NXi upgrades for the Phenom 100 and 300 as well as the TBM 850.

The Hardware

A retrofit of a Garmin G1000 NXi in a King Air requires a complete replacement of the existing avionics suite. All new hardware is installed in the airplane, including an all-new autopilot. In addition, all of the existing cockpit wiring is replaced in the airplane from nose to tail. At Elliott Aviation, when we complete a Garmin G1000 NXi retrofit in a King Air, a customer will receive the following hardware upgrades:

  • All-new metal instrument panel
  • Dual integrated radio modules, providing WAAS-certified GPS, VHF navigation with ILS, and VHF communication with 16-watt transceivers and 25 kHz or 8.33 kHz channel spacing (GIA 64E)

  • Dual solid-state attitude and heading reference and solid-state air data computer all-in-one (GSU 75B)
  • Three-axis digital Automatic Flight Control System (GFC 700)
  • Four-color digital weather radar with stabilization (GWX 75)
  • Integrated Class-B TAWS terrain alerting with worldwide terrain and U.S. database
  • SXM Satellite Radio datalink receiver (GDL 69A)
  • Large-format LCDs – 10-inch PFD’s; 15-inch MFD
  • RVSM airframe certification
  • Standby instrument package

Unbeatable Features at Every Level

All of these hardware upgrades and modifications add up to one of the most feature-rich avionics suites on the market. The features of the legacy G1000 and the Garmin G1000 NXi include improvements for safer flight operations, better situational awareness, reduced pilot workload, and even entertainment. As pioneers of cutting-edge technologies like synthetic vision and mobile connectivity, Garmin’s features for the G1000 NXi beat any other competitive King Air avionics suite on the market.

Select G1000 NXi Features In-Depth

Flight Control System

The Garmin G1000 NXi features the GFC™ 700 Automatic Flight Control System (AFCS). This is a fully digital, three-axis, dual-channel, fail-passive autopilot. This autopilot allows you to fly full class 3 WAAS/LPV glide path approaches down to comparable minimums of an ILS approach. The Garmin G1000 NXi also has the capability for a visual approach, which has a three-degree autopilot that is coupled with a vertical flight path down to your selected minimums. The flexibility of the GFC™ 700 AFCS gives you more options to fly and land your aircraft.

Electronic Stability and Protection

Garmin ESP™ (Electronic Stability and Protection) is a feature of the Garmin G1000 NXi that gives you assistance when you are hand-flying your airplane. Garmin ESP™ helps to prevent loss of control during flight by giving a gentle correction to the yoke when it detects excessive roll or pitch by utilizing the autopilot servos. Garmin ESP™ also provides coupled go-around capabilities and under-speed protection (USP).

Synthetic Vision

One of the most popular options of the Garmin G1000 NXi is Garmin’s exclusive SVT™ synthetic vision technology. Garmin’s SVT™ is like having a picture-perfect view even in the most difficult IFR or VFR conditions. Having this feature gives you a 3D view of the PFD of the landscape and terrain. It also shows obstacles, datalink weather and/or onboard radar overlays, flight plan routes, airports, traffic targets, SafeTaxi diagrams, and more.

In addition, utilizing the U.S. obstacles database, the G1000 NXi displays color-coded terrain alerting when you encounter proximity conflicts. The system comes with Class-B Terrain Awareness and Warning System (TAWS) or, depending on the type of airplane, an optional Class-A TAWS for extra safety.

HSI Mapping in the Primary Flight Display

The Garmin G1000 NXi gives you HSI mapping perspectives that you would only typically see in an MFD in the HSI section of your PFD. This can help you better visualize en route and nearby flight navigation features.

SafeTaxi & SurfaceWatch™ Runway Monitoring

SafeTaxi is a safety feature that helps you monitor your location in unfamiliar airports. It has a database of airports in the US, Canada, Europe, and Brazil. It shows your airplane position on the field along with all of the taxiways, intersections, and hot spots to help keep you safe on the ground.

SurfaceWatch™ makes your SafeTaxi even better by adding TerminalTraffic™, which allows surveillance of all aircraft equipped with ADS-B and all vehicles within the airport. It also allows for runway identification and alerting. This can help provide safer operations to avoid taking off or landing on the wrong runway, takeoff on a taxiway or using a runway that is too short.

Electronic Charts

Garmin G1000 NXi Split Screen

The Garmin G1000 NXi has built-in electronic FliteCharts® to include approach plates and terminal procedures for thousands of airports. Jeppesen’s ChartView™ electronic charts are also available as an option for the G1000 NXi system. Standard departures and arrivals are provided with your choice of georeferenced IFR or VFT Sectional en route mapping. The upgraded NXi also added an MFD split-screen view to show maps, checklists, flight plans, charts, and more on a single screen.

Traffic, Weather, and More With ADS-B in

In addition to providing ADS-B out, the Garmin G1000 NXi gives you ADS-B in to give you advanced traffic displays to include TerminalTraffic and TargetTrend™, as well as subscription-free weather. Garmin’s GWX™ 75 Doppler-capable color weather radar provides scanning profiles for accurate weather profiles. There are also options like ground clutter suppression and turbulence detection for safer and smoother flights. To receive satellite-link weather throughout most of Europe, Canada, and the US, you can choose an optional Garmin Connext® satellite link high-resolution radar imagery.

For North American operators, through the standard GDL® 69A data link receiver, you can also choose an optional SiriusXM weather to be overlaid on the moving map and on the HSI of the PFD. A subscription to SiriusXM gives you NEXRAD images, lightning, winds, METARs, TFRs, TAFs, and more. You can also choose for NEXRAD images to be animated to monitor changing conditions.

Monitor and Log Engine Data

The Garmin G1000 NXi automatically monitors and logs engine data to include trends and exceedance analysis. This data can be used to help identify performance issues early to avoid costly longer-term repairs.

Wireless Cockpit Connectivity with Garmin Connext®

In conjunction with the Garmin Pilot™ app, using Garmin’s Connext® and an optional Flight Stream 510, pilots can stream information in real-time between the Garmin G1000 NXi and your mobile device. This option can help you interface the cockpit with the continual streaming of traffic, weather, attitude information, and more. It also enables flight plan transfer and Database Concierge wireless database transfer.

ADS-B in information like weather, traffic, GPS, and attitude, as well as flight plan transfer, are also available with Garmin Connext® for mobile devices that are using ForeFlight. If you have a subscription to SiriusXM® audio, Garmin’s Connext® feature will allow you to control channel selection from any seat on the aircraft wirelessly. The Garmin G1000 NXi also has an option for a Bluetooth-enabled audio panel. This allows both the pilots and passengers to connect a mobile device to stream audio or to make and receive phone calls.

Weight Savings

One of the most functional benefits that many King Air operators find when they decide to upgrade to the Garmin G1000 NXi is substantial weight savings. While typical King Air operators can expect a weight savings of around 200 pounds, we have seen weight savings of up to 400 pounds in extreme cases. The weight savings that operators realize comes from replacing all of the old avionics boxes, heavy CRT displays, and all of the heavy old wiring that runs the length of the airplane. This weight savings translates to a greater useful load to carry more fuel, passengers, or luggage.

Final Thoughts

When it was first introduced, the Garmin G1000 revolutionized the aviation industry. The major advancements that Garmin made have made flying safer and more reliable for thousands of pilots around the world. Their easy-to-use products and relentless pursuit of evolving their product continue to keep them positioned as the top option for many different aircraft types. At Elliott Aviation, the Garmin G1000 NXi for the King Air continues to be the most requested avionics retrofit. For most King Air operators, its unbeatable features make it the best solution for their aircraft.

Flight Simulator 2020 - How to - Garmin G1000 NXi - Set flight plan manually

Working Title G1000 NXi updated with weather radar, improved AP, user holds, and more

Working Title has been working closely with the Flight Simulator team to improve some of the simulator’s base systems. The G1000 NXi is one of those contributions, an excellent and constantly improving alternative to the default G1000 avionics. It was made available for free in the Marketplace a few weeks ago, and keeping up with the promise of continued improvements it has now been brought up to version 0.5.0 with a long list of fixes and new features.

New on this version are a few exciting new features that add even more functionality to the G1000. These include new additions such as user holds, automatic CDI switching and slewing for ILS approaches, an overhauled autopilot/FMA, TCAS traffic display on the maps, NEXRAD (weather radar) and much more.

Besides the new features, there’s also a long list of squashed bugs. This is to be expected, as the G1000 NXi is currently available as an Early Access Beta. Because of this, it’s important to keep providing the development team with any helpful feedback you may have.

The G1000 NXi is available for every stock airplane in MSFS that makes use of the Garmin G1000:

Known Issues

  • Outer large COM knob only reduces frequency no matter the direction the knob is turned. This is an issue with the cockpit panel behaviors in the sim and has been logged with the MSFS team, but will not be able to be addressed in the NXi package as it is an issue with the base planes.
  • Sometimes the flight plan loading from the world map screen is loaded incompletely; this can usually be solved by restarting the flight – we are working on nailing this down.
  • World Map imports from Navigraph and Simbrief do not include airways, so airways will not be added to the G1000 NXi flight plan when the plan was imported to the World Map from one of these sources.
  • User holds are currently supported for the destination or for runways; this is coming in the future.

Heads Up!

  • GPS, LOC, and VOR modes now ARM! Be aware that you will need to be on an intercept course and within capture distance of the desired flight path before those modes will become active.
  • The GPS flight plan sequencing will enter SUSP under the following conditions: when reaching a manual termination leg (holds, manual sequence) and when reaching the final leg of the plan. This is actually correct behavior. To exit out of SUSP (for example, if you got to the end of a plan and then loaded more waypoints), hit the SUSP softkey in the middle of the PFD.
  • Changing the CDI source drops the autopilot into ROL mode. This is the correct behavior, intended to keep the airplane held in the same attitude until the pilot reselects appropriate guidance.
  • When exiting a hold, do not delete the HOLD as it will cause flight plan issues. Press the SUSP key to continue with the flight plan sequence or go direct to another fix.
