Hi Update v1.0.2 works great, two questions.

I want to use the G500 on a simulator that is not connected to the internet. How do I get round the issue of the software asking for licence updates every 15 days??

Once set up (with its own screen) is it possible to save the screen position and size so after closing down X-Plane they are automatically restored next time X-Plane is started??

This is not possible, sorry.

That functionality will come for RealSimGear hardware. I'm not sure it will be extended beyond that.

Hi Cameron,

The Non interconnected simulator resides in a trailer that we move round the country. We are a charity trying to promote aviation as a career to youngsters. So as well as the trailer we have a collection of pedal planes for younger pilots to use at various venues such as RAF open days. We don't make any money from this, but just promote aviation as a potential career. Can we by a licence that is checked one a year if we pay a bit more??

We don't need the RealSimGear G500 as we have our own which works well, but having the ability to retain settings would be good. I see during shut down you deliberately delete screen setting, this is a shame. Other add-ons such as Reality XP GNS530 don't do this.

Regarding licensing, no the system requires internet activation every two weeks. Connecting via a phone hotspot should suffice to refresh for two weeks. It doesn't need to be a persistent internet connection, once the license file is updated.

Regarding screen settings, nothing is deleted between loads, we don't support non-RealSimGear hardware for monitors, but with some fiddling you might be able to get the screens to stick. Attached is the integration guide with details, see pages 8/9/10 for the popups.cfg documentation.

Thanks for the documentation. Really appreciate that. will try a phone hot-spot idea. If the data to verify licencing is not too much (which I guess it isn't) then as you suggest a hot spot on a mobile should work just fine.

I am really hoping that others seeing this software in the trailer sim will end up wanting to buy it for their own system too, so I see it a bit as a a demonstrator for you as well as promoting aviation to potential career pilots.

We have two tailer SIms, one is a PA34 with G500 / G600, the other is  a Piper Tomahawk with clockwork Frasca simulated instrumentation.
