    How to scroll to small menu with tabs and load Flight Plan

    Mmm, not quite. I've got it back, together with morse-beeps from a VOR-frequency while everything is cold and dark. I'll investigate this issue further. edit: Aha, I know what it is...the volume of my COM. Strange that it is already giving white noise while off. Well, I turned it off.

    How to scroll to small menu with tabs and load Flight Plan

    *KIND OF SOLVED* So, not via the 'small menu with the tabs', but via the 'big' menu: unselect any line, and then turn the inner FMS-knob slightly to the right (instead of what the manual says: "click on the 3 o'clock corner of that inner knob") By the way - other topic: In the mean time I re-installed the whole airplane because every session started with a continuous kind-of-crackle-white-noise sound (Could be the sound of rain or a transistor radio that is not correctly tuned) I could not get rid of it. It started after I had to shut down X-plane in the air. In the next session I made a new airframe, started with the 'Getting Started" tutorial to reset everything, but the sound was there (right from the start from cold and dark to the end of the flight). A totally new install solved the problem. → Is there a kind of file that I can delete or change next time something like this happens?
  3. Hello, I am struggling for this for a long time, because all tutorial videos show a GARMIN which has the knobs on the right side and in those videos you see people scroll through a small menu with tabs without any problems. In the TBM9 when I push the FPL-button a few two times the small menu with the tabs in the right lower corner show up, ("MAP WPT NRST FPL SYS checkLST") but after two or three seconds the whole popup goes away. So I don't have any time to find out what knob to turn or push to scroll through the submenu of a tab. My goal is to select the second item, called "FLIGHT PLAN CATALOG", because I think I can load a list of saved flight plans and select one. I could not find a way to load a flight plan via the MENU knob. It is so difficult. Would somebody like to explain how to load a flight plan? (and or use this small menu?) Thanks.

    TBM 900 v1.1.11 Update Released!

    Why not make a habit of cold-and-dark? Most in depth aircraft add ons get a messed up set-up when X-plane fires up with engines running. edit: Oh, thanks by the way for the 1.1.1 so quickly after all and solving the mac os x glitch! Sometimes still struggling a bit with fps and so, but I think it is much better then in the past...I am flying like a millionaire again. fun:

    TBM 900 v1.1.10 Update Released!

    No I am on Mojave. Has nothing to do with Catalina. If it takes long, I would like to revert back. OK - This Discord-platform is an impossible mess at my end. The rare occasions that I am able to push myself through, Discord wants me to "Dit is een ongeclaimd account. Claim het voordat het verloren gaat. "Claim Account" - Of course I cannot "claim" any account, because I have already two accounts that are somehow unusable. I don't want to dive into this....I don't want to go to Discord... I just want to fly the TBM900 I purchased. I expect an email with a link to download a working and compatible version via X-Aviation. No more messing about. I am done investigating and sending bug reports every time after developers suggest that I should update something. I would really urge to release new updates AFTER thoroughly testing on all platforms. (Why is it that 70% of my time behind X-plane is browsing internet, downloading, re-arranging files, asking questions on several forums, tweaking set-ups, just to get X-plane stable and performing at fps>20, and for only 30% actually flying....aargh...That's something for me to think about, when I am walking along the riverside tonight....so frustrating...I think I go Vanilla and stick with the Cessna) Pfff.

    TBM 900 v1.1.10 Update Released!

    I'm getting a little bit behind. Regulary I am redirected to "Discord" if I want to know about what happened to bugs or questions about plugins, add-ons etc. Now, I managed to get in, in the past, actually I seem to have two accounts on two different e-mailadresses. When I open the Discord-app, about 1 out of 3 times it gets stuck in a window with a spinning gaming-device-like pictogram. Right now I managed to get inside the app, but I think to follow this discussion I have to be invited? I need some kind of an adress like "https://discord.gg/qJq5C". Would you like to provide me one? Thanks.

    GARMIN stays black

    Thanks for the info. I'll try...in the mean time, good opportunity practicing VOR-to-VOR.. edit: (4 days later). GARMIN is connected again to power socket and working. (With or without it...such a great plane to hop around the ortho-photoscenery covered Hawaii islands!)

    GARMIN stays black

    Hi, I tried cargo, same issue. I've read that too. It also said something about changing a data ref: sim/cockpit/electrical/avionics=0, change it to "1"...That did not solve it either. Strange, I remember to have the Garmin working a time ago.

    GARMIN stays black

    Hello, good day, It has been a long time since I'm in my Pacific Coastal transporting some locals from one to another freezing cold place in Canada, in the cosy warm heated cabin of my SAAB...what am I talking? Sorry...I just want to say that I recall turning a knob on the GARMIN and the screen will light up. Now suddenly nothing happens; the screen stays black. Is there something I miss? All avionics are on, though. I'm going VOR to VOR right now, as long as that helps me find my way. All the best.

    https://forums.x-plane.org/index.php?/forums/topic/196984-hotstart-tbm-900-pfd-not-working/&do=findComment&comment=1798560 In the link above you can see my pics. I did a total clean install. Problem still exists. I only found out that the GARMIN is 'broken' and the ALT SEL-knob does not work. I don't know about more bugs. I think it is mac os x-related. I hope to finally start flying this beauty, it is gathering too much dust in the hangar.

    +1 on lacking info on the screens, the yellow and white warning text messages are gone (chime does go, though); I miss a whole column of information, the one with flaps and trim etc. and the ALT knob does not work anymore. Is it mac os x related? Why not test new updates on basic things on both platforms before release? (I'm on Mojave).

    Nice job on the Saab 340A for XP11...

    I also want to send my deepest sincere love to this aircraft....my desk vibrates because of the roaring props. I am really into the gauges, the whole look and feel...I can almost smell the plane. I am addicted to the workload in the cockpit and the finetuning of my performance and path during my PCO-flights above Vancouver and surroundings. Yep! A relief from the computed managed flights of p.ex an Airbus.

    -solved: Xsquawkbox problem - CTD while descending

    Thanks, good idea. I've set it up like that to prevent further crashes.

    Indeed it is. I have to go to XSquawkBox forum for this. Thanks.
