Release Notes - Navigraph G3000 & G5000 Avionics Plugin


We have included most if not all of the previously removed chart features in the first beta version. As the framework improves and we get more time to work on features, we plan on introducing even more!

  • Different charts displayed on each PFD (with required first-party “enhancement” mods installed)
  • Support for vertical and horizontal GTC units
  • SimBrief import page
  • Global settings
    • SimBrief

      • Broadcast position (XBox only)
  • Chart options
    • Lightmode (Day/Night/Auto)
    • Chart section (header, profile, etc.) where available
  • Airport Chart button in “Nearest Airport” menu
  • Show Chart button in the procedure options slideouts

  • Fit Chart button that adjusts the size of the displayed chart to fit on the screen
  • Charts tab in the airport information page
  • SYNC POF button to resume the above automatic behavior after manual chart
  • Automatic selection of chart linked to a loaded procedure when navigating chart categories
  • Automatic selection of relevant charts when the chart page is opened throughout the flight
  • Aircraft (ownship) position on top of supported charts
  • Panning, zooming, and rotating of displayed charts
  • No Charts Available message for airports without charts
  • Database status page, showing Navigraph account link status

Planned features
  • Automatic opening of airport chart when designating the charts page (if appropriate)
  • Automatic opening of airport chart on landing
  • Scale “widget” when showing georeferenced charts
  • Aircraft Not Shown icon when the aircraft location is outside of valid bounds

Limitations & Known issues

  • The “Auto Light Mode Threshold” function is experimental and currently only works in the TBM930. Support for additional aircraft will be added as they expose the necessary values to plugins.
  • Ownship icon becomes too large after pressing the Fit WDTH button


While there are 3rd party addons that use the Garmin avionics built into the simulator, these might not be immediately compatible. Please only use the default aircraft for now. We are working together with the developers of the following add-ons to ensure full compatibility:

  • HJet (FlightFX)
  • VisionJet (FlightFX)


The plugin can be installed using Navigraph Hub. Look for Avionics Plugin G3000/G5000 in the list of available packages for Microsoft Flight Simulator 2020.
