Carenado TBM ServicePack 1

FSX/P3D. So it seems the girl of my dreams came plagued with many issues that have been discussed here and on various forums. Carenado has just released the first service pack and by looking at the improved features list, I am already looking forward to service pack 2 as this doesn't seem to address some other issues I discovered . If you all can check it out and let us know how it worked out for you, i'll note my experience as well. She is so beautiful, just need the bells and whistles worked out...  Click below for a full list of the changelog.

Although many issues seem to had been fixed and it talks well of Carenado, it is strange that the plane was released with such clear bugs, and more strange that according to Andre, there are still some to be fixed.

It is a 40$ plane, it should be top quality, I say this because I would like to buy it in future.

I've got news for ya. Wait until all bugs are addressed and then buy in the future. (slams head against palm of the hand).

Well the most glaring omission, as I've said before here, is Carenado simulating a G1000 on this fine aircraft and simply leaving out all VNAV functionality.

I mean seriously Carenado, you give us such a beautiful looking aircraft and then don't go the extra mile to give us any VNAV function?

I hope that either Fernando or Mauricio of Carenado are reading along here and will address this please!

This happens time after time. Everybody almost demands these company's to release there new aircraft "NOW!" but within a day or two the same people are saying it shouldn't have been released. This will happen with the PMDG 777, you can guarantee it.

Nothing is going to be perfect as it's software at the end of the day.

Not digging at anybody, it's just a general comment.

The missing VNAV of this aircraft has to be the biggest let-down of any recent payware aircraft!

Time and time again Carenado release fantastic looking aircraft that are just that, fantastic looking and not much else. I wish they would develop beyond the Mickey Mouse avionics and give us a true simulation of the aircraft systems and avionics.

I'm sure I'm not the only one willing to pay more for a PRO version of the TBM 850, once that has a fully working G1000.

I couldn't agree more, it's like running a marathon and stopping 2 miles before the finish line. Why oh why did Carneado choose to give us a handicapped G1000?

I thought all along the TBM 850 had VNAV, as the guys here had said that it did. Is this not the case?

No, we all got delivery of a Carenado TBM 850 with a castrated G1000.

How about the missing VNAV as a Rant/ Editorial. Surely the missing VNAV on a simulated G1000 in the TBM 850 is way more of an issue than wing flex?

It uses the standard FSX nav database meaning no VNAV, no LPS/LP/WAAS/RNAV/GPS approaches. Carenado should retrly step up their game and retrofit a real G1000 to their T182, SR22, and this plane. They could even charge for it as an addon. Otherwise, this is a real shame.

Not just the TMB 850, also the SR22 and T182T.

Exactly - the FS default nav database has no notion of the restrictions/vertical information needed for VNAV so thus, it's impossible using the [horribly outdated] default navdata. To start using their own AIRAC would be quite an undertaking but I'm certain it'd make everyone MUCH happier with their products.

No, but bend over for some assflex ;-)
