malc4d,

When I converted over to the G1000 I downloaded the manual off the garmin website and printed it off. (you'll need plenty of ink)!!

I then brought the mindstar aviation G1000 sim for FS2004.

It is a great bit of kit. Everything I used functions as it should and everything is accurate, unlike the G1000 on FSX. I used to practice holds and NDB/ ILS approaches regularly and all the timings etc worked out the same as in the ALSIM FNPT2 I was training on. Not bad for 30. ish.

It comes attached to a C172 but I found if you fly at full throttle it delivers 138kts which is the speed I flew in the DA42 so it worked out nicely.

For me it was worth its weight in gold.......

Just as another pointer, I used to struggle changing the frequencies with my mouse, just found it a bit of a pain in the a%$e.

If you have or get yourself one of those mice for your computer with a rotating wheel on it and by rotating the wheel it runs up and down the frequencies a treat. Could have saved me hours!

Enjoy the G1000 its a pleasure to fly with on the sim and in the air....
