    VNav in TbM900

    The typical use of VNAV would be not so much for the approaches but rather for arrivals (I am not sure if the altitudes in the approach segment have any real effect on VNAV). In the flightplan you need to scroll to the waypoint for which you want to have an altitude restriction. In the field to the right of the waypoint name you can enter the altitude you want to be at for this waypoint (don't forget to confirm by pressing the enter button). During the flight you would then use the steps I mentioned in my above post. If you only wish to be at the correct altitude at the IAF, try entering the IAF as waypoint in your flight plan just before the arrival airport and input the altitude restriction there. This should also do the trick. It also helps to point the aircraft in the right direction after the "real" last waypoint in your flight plan.

    VNav in TbM900

    What exactly does not work? Did you... put a lower altitude in the altitude pre-selector? confirm the altitudes in the flight plan? (i.e. select the altitude and press enter) activate the VNAV button within 5 minutes of the TOD? (afaik that is the limitation of the LR G1000) These are the first things which come to my mind to check, but maybe I am misunderstanding your statement!?!?
  3. Yes, I can confirm that - I tend to find them rather annoying, that's why I have set them to zero even before I even purchased the TBM. btw, I can really understand that this one is really hard to track down - I am not even able to reproduce the effect on my single machine with a limited amount of plugins. I can live with this happening from time to time.
  4. For me it is definitely not AI or traffic as I don''t have any of it activated. Until yesterday I was almost sure that it was related to Real Weather Connector - starting roughly 2 months ago I started from (almost) plain X-Plane to gradually re-activate (i.e. move back to the plugins folder) my handful of plugins in order to track this thing down. The last one remaining was RWC and I didn't have a single CTD during this whole period. Alas, on my last flight yesterday (basically when I had just decided: maybe the issue was somehow fixed by XP 11.40, let's re-animate RWC) I had the ominous CTD again. So now I know, it is NOT RWC! What I did notice I couple of times in the log files, that just before the CTD there would be entries from SkyMaxx Pro updating weather... Anyhow, I guess I will just live with it as I do get the CTD only very occasionally (1 out of 10-20 or so flights), most of the flights work out as expected.

    XP 11.35

    Just do double check: are you sure that the VOR you have tuned in does in fact have a DME associated, i.e. is a VORTAC or a VOR/DME? For me it does work with both NAV1 and NAV2 receivers tuned in to a proper station. In my opinion LR has actually modelled the DME pretty realistic, meaning that it shows the slant disctance from the airplane to the station, so if you overfly the station directly at FL180 it still shows a distance of about 3 NM.

    @shivanandrs: this is a know bug of the SkunkCraftsUpdater v2.4 (Discussion on x-plane.org). This is not related to TBM.

    I can't start the plane !

    My mistake - realized now that voltage is indeed indicated on the screenshot, still seems low (<24V). GPU seems to be connected ("GPU DOOR"). The "no fuel flow" thing is puzzling

    Seems like no voltage on the battery. Are you sure you put the SOURCE selector to BATT? Currently not at my PC. Can‘t verify if this makes sense. Cheers
  9. (Finally) I also had the same error just now with 1.1.8 and Win10. This was only my second ever crash flying the TBM since October. This one happened on the approach to KPGA after almost 3 hours of flight from KBFI. It could well be related to either SkyMaxPro or FSGRW, as the latest METAR.rwx was from less than a minute before the crash. Log files attached. Hope it helps PS: I am still impressed with this awesome beauty and your level of support and dedication. Log.txt TBM900_Log.txt
