Tutorial: TDS Garmin GTNXi | Little Known [AWESOME] Features

TDS Garmin GTNXi | Little Known [AWESOME] Features

By thecorporatepilotdad

The Garmin GTNXi by TDS Simulations is packed full of useful features for use in Microsoft Flight Simulator. This video features 3 little known features that I use quite often that may be helpful to others.


1. Loading an approach. Approaches with LPV minimums can be loaded into the GPS without navigating several menu screens. This method is a very fast way of entering an RNAV approach with LPV minimums.

2. Traffic Information. Did you know more information about nearby traffic can be discovered?

3. Missing airports or points of interest can be entered with"User Waypoints" with the aid of Google Earth or Google Maps.


The Garmin GTN 750xi is shown, but this also works for the Garmin GTN 650xi by TDS.
