I attempted to ask customer support to simply purchase the 750 GPS or GTN.... and am more confused than when I asked the question. Guess I am more daft than deft on the computer... and it looks like there is no such thing as customer support with this company,

Can anyone help with 2 questions:

A) Is F1 the only place to purchase this product? I just want to buy and download the software. Clown

B) If I do manage to purchase this GPS Add-on, I presume it it loads into the aircraft I have purchased if they are compatible? 

C) Do I have to repurchase the software for every aircraft I wish to add it?

 I am using P3Dv4, have a 2017 model Alienware desktop/ Windows 10.

Thank you in advance for any advice.Cry

You only need to purchase one copy and you can use it in as many aircraft as you like.

Here is where you buy:

Bert,

Please know that I successfully purchased the software- BUT did not successfully load it to work on P3DV4. I tried to download it on my D drive (HDD) where I have P3D installed. The Trainer file went to C drive. I managed to reinstall that file to D as well. 

So when I am in an aircraft- say an A2A- I see the unit- BUT it does not activate. I also don't think it connects with the data file...

Sorry to be an idiot- but this is not my forte.Cry

Should I just delete the program and reinstall?

I tried to join the Forum reserved for GTN- but it wont let me- as it says my user name and email are already registered? Hmmm.

Thanks for your time and patience.

Suggest uninstalling the trainer and reinstalling it to its default location. I assume you are using a2a config app to install the GTN in the panel.. if so, that should work.

If still problems, post in the GTN support forum.

Bert, 

I have no idea what an A2A configuration App is. Sorry.

I will uninstall the entire GTN program. When I reinstall it- shall I put the program into D: with my P3D program - or should I just leave it in C:  ( I have no P3D programs in C:, which is a solid state and I use for Windows or Operating Systems...

Then for the Trainer installation should I put it all in D: as well  (If I install the program into D:) or leave it in C:? You probably are going to tell me take up another hobby- like marbles.

Thank you again for your patience with me.

No need to uninstall the GTN gauges. They are fine with P3D.

Just reinstall the Garmin Trainer and let it install on the C: drive.

The a2a planes have an airplane configurator app that allows you choose your GPS option. It is typically in the a2a\tools folder.. search for it!
