Features:

  • Improved interface with Intel integrated graphics controllers
  • Dual computer monitor support
  • Dual GDU display — able to display PFD and MFD simultaneously
  • Remote Controllers — additional controls such as GMC and GCU will interface with GDUs

NOTE: Due to the graphic memory intensive nature of the G1000 simulator, it must be the only application running on your PC. In some cases, even though your computer meets the minimum PC requirements, the simulator may not function properly. This is due to the unique configuration of each computer and the extra processes and procedures that are utilized by that computer.

Great G1000 Training Tool

  • By JP from Heartland, USA on Friday, June 02, 2017
  • Pros: Amazing capability; beats having to go to an actual G1000 equipped plane if just starting to learn.
  • Review: I do not understand some of the complaints. Folks, this is not a flight simulator. It is, as its name suggests, a G1000 trainer software to help you get familiarize with the G1000. Yes, you can set yourself up in the air so that you may practice using the device, learn its features, etc. You may control your altitude, speed and heading via your keyboard, or a joystick if it is connected to your computer. The software is not going to behave like a plane because, again, IT IS NOT A FLIGHT SIMULATOR. Manual not needed - lots of videos on YouTube to show you how to use the G1000.

Installing the G1000 Trainer on Windows 10 Based Systems

  • By Al from B16 on Saturday, January 28, 2017
  • Pros: Gives you "No Cost" ground time to learn the G1000
  • Review:

    So the Garmin G1000 Simulator/trainer can be successfully loaded and run on Windows 10 based system. It takes less the 5 minutes to install.

    The auto installation will not directly run if the disk is just place in the CD drive . It requires the following steps.

    Place disk in CD Drive.
    Use the "File Explore" option to see the files on the CD.
    Click on the "Install Folder" to see the files within.
    Now the trick. You need to "Right Click" on the "Cessna NAVIII Trainer vXX.XX" (This install was v13.02)
    Now click on "Trouble Shoot Compatibility".
    Then choose "Trouble Shoot Program"
    Choose "Program ran on earlier versions of Windows But wont run or install now" Choose Windows 8.
    Choose "Test the Program"
    NOW Look at the lower portion of your screen. You will/should see two(?) or more installation shield warning from Windows 10.
    Choose YES for all the shield warnings
    You are getting close now!
    The Cessna NAVIII program will be requesting that you accept the terms, etc..
    Choose.. "I Agree"
    Make sure you choose all the components / aircraft you want.. including "Flight Charts" located at the bottom of the list.
    You will then get to choose where you want the files installed.. I suggest you just let the program decide.

    When done...

    Go to the installed files location .. If you chose the default file locations .. You will find the Cessna trainer in the "Program Files (x86)".. Open the Cessna folder. Copy and past the "Start_Dual_Screen" file, located at near the bottom of the file listing onto the Desk Top. And you 99% there !!!

    When you click on the desktop icon. You will get the MFD and PFD. From there. It depends on your set up. I use two monitors and setup the screens like the aircraft.. PFD on left. MFD on the right. ONE MORE TRICK.

    The only place I can find to initially "Resize" the MFD and PFD is in the upper LEFT corner of the two displays.

    Lastly..

    The program should be closed by "Right Clicking" on the taskbar dual Cessna icons on the bottom of the computer screen, and choosing "Close all windows." This way when the program is restarted the original screen locations will be preserved.

    There you go. FYI.. Running Windows 10 Home. G100 Trainer: v13.02 Using CH Products Flight Sim Yoke (USB) and CH Pro Pedals (USB) with full functionality. Fly's great with the above. and via the AP.

    There may be slight variation in your installation.. But 99% of the above should be the process.. Enjoy.. Be safe... Al N522CS - 182T

Meh. Pretty poor interface makes training super slow and boring.

  • By A Customer from Palo Alto CA USA on Monday, December 12, 2016
  • Pros:
  • Review: Two stars because, I suppose, it works.

    You have to use the mouse to click on knobs to tune, so entering a 5 letter checkpoint, e.g. VPSUN or ALTAM is incredibly slow. At least on the real thing you can turn the knobs faster. They could have allowed the keyboard to tune the knobs etc, but don't.

    To use the sim, you have no reference to the ground other than the g1000 instrument. Yes, this is by design, but the inability to integrate with FSX or some other flight sim makes it pretty tough to actually practice. The aircraft "model" has no concept of velocity or how an AC performs, so you can go super fast or slow down to zero.

    Summary: I found reading the manual for an hour to be fare more enjoyable *and* valuable for my g1000 transition than this sim.

Installed under Windows 10

  • By BrianB from Herndon, VA on Thursday, October 06, 2016
  • Pros: It does actually appear to work
  • Review: It wouldn't install using the normal Setup.exe in the CD base Folder.
    It did install when I did this:
    - Open the Install Folder
    - Right-Click Cessna NAVIII G1000 Trainer v10.00.exe
    - Run as Administrator
    The first time I ran it it hung up, after that it seems to be ok.
    I hope that helps.

Joystick recommended but not necessary

  • By Herb from Canton MI USA on Sunday, January 17, 2016
  • Pros: Tailored to C172
  • Review: I've never caught on to flight simulation on the PC and this was just as difficult. I couldn't control the speed of the simulation, so I bought a joystick to add a little more precision to my flights.

  • By James from Granite Bay CA USA on Tuesday, October 13, 2015
  • Pros: For the price it's great.
  • Review: Very good product.  A little limited in some areas, but for this price an excellent value.

Garmin1000's guide through the enigma - v 13.02

  • By Wilfried Markus from Spiez BE Switzerland on Monday, July 27, 2015
  • Pros: Provides an excellent synopsis.
  • Review: Overall...an excellent tool! A MUST before any real flight.
    Particularly the "Pilot's Training Guide" including lessons 1 - 13.
    A small number of functions are not simulated: The "Audio Panel" (which I regret) and a few others of secondary importance.
    The section of Arrival-Approach-MAP- and H-procedures is not sufficiently explained - neither is (e.g.) the "Closest Point Of Flight Plan". -
    A few more detailed exercises/examples would be a great help.
    Summary: best value for the price! I shall buy any new version of it.......
