I downloaded the Trainer for the Garmin GNS 620 here.

I installed and now have a few programs. I can open the GNS 620, the touchscreen GPS and boot it up, plan a route and so on.

There's also a program to open the G600, the PFD and MFD. However, when I open this program, it just says it can't connect to a simulator and exits.

My questions is: How can I use those trainers properly? How can I simulate the flight? How do I control the virtual plane? Do I need a simulator for this?

I would really appreciate answers, as I have no idea what to do.


  • $\begingroup$ Welcome to aviation.SE! Is there a manual installed with the software? Even if someone here knows the trainer well, explaining how to use a complex piece of software isn't really a good fit for a Q&A site like this. $\endgroup$ – Pondlife Apr 6 '17 at 19:30

I found all the information needed in the "Trainer's User Guide.pdf" that was installed with the software.

In short, launch ONLY the GTN - G600 Trainer. Do not have any other components started.

3 windows should launch: GTN Trainer, G600 Trainer and Navigation Control.

Give it a good 30 seconds to load up, then on the GTN Trainer window, click "Power On".
All windows should come up and be active.
