Thread: Carenado C208 questions?

  1. Angry Carenado C208 questions?

    Hi everyone, I just had a few questions about the gps in the Carenado C208 Grand Caravan. Or more like one question. How in the heck do I view the map in the gps? It seemed very similar to other gps's included in other products. Flight plan, direct to waypoint etc. But I can't figure out how to view the actual map?

    Thanks for any advice...

    You are probably referring to the Garmin GNS430.

    In that case refer to the picture in the Carenado GNS430 Users Guide. You need to click over the "DEFAULT NAV" mark (below the CLR button) to get the MAP display.

    Hi Mark
    it took me a while to figure it out too!!
    what i do is i move my mouse to the area just under the CLR button , then click there
    or just to the right of it, can be tricky to find, what I also do is i double click on the gps on the
    pannel in vc mode and it comes up in a separate window, and I leave that up so I can see where i am
    hope that helps,and makes sense

    Its got to be the dumbest GPS ever installed in a plane. When you do find the map you quickly realize how useless it is.

    Or you just realize that is how the GNS430 (and other GPS systems of similar type) works in real life. I actually like the 430 better then that default thing. I think it might actually tell you more information then the default.

    Yeah I know I've heard some iffy things about Carenado's GNS 430 so im thinking of replacing the pop-up gauge with a different one...
    We'll see though!
