X-Plane GPS Configuration Tool








Select your GPS device

You have selected a computer running Microsoft Windows as your X-Plane platform. Now please choose the type of GPS device that you will use.


Garmin 400W/500W Series Trainer. Newer, 32-bit, GPS simulator software with WAAS capability running on a Windows computer (or a Windows emulator). This works with both 32-bit and 64-bit Windows.




Garmin 500 Series Trainer. Older, 16-bit, GPS simulator software running on a Windows computer (or a Windows emulator). This does not work on 64-bit Windows 7.
(Dear Reader: I'm unsure whether it also fails to run on 64-bit Vista and XP. If you know, please write to me at the contact address at the bottom of the main xgps page so I can clarify this.)




Real GPS device, such as this Garmin GPSMAP 296. Must understand aviation protocol over a serial connection.




Moving map software, such as PocketFMS running on a PDA, or other devices that understand NMEA sentences over a serial connection.
