Using Carenado/Alabeo XP10 products in XP11
Lately, I’ve been flying the C195 and C207, and have noticed some nagging little issues. I’m wondering if they are 1) operator error (manuals are light to nonexistent), 2) just business as usual for the developer, 3) will be fixed in an update to an XP11 compatible version, or 4) broken in XP11.
Here are some of the issues that I’ve encountered:
- Scroll manipulator on the fuel selector in the C207 broken. The dual curved arrows should indicate scroll active, but only work by dragging right or left.
- Sometimes the C and O side menus fail to operate on the C195.
- Failure of the autopilot to capture the GPS route in NAV mode in the C207. Sometimes it works, often it doesn’t. HDG mode usually does. Haven’t tried capturing OBS, because I usually fly with either NAV or HDG selected in GPS mode.
- VORTAC/DME failure to receive and/or display information regardless of altitude or distance from station.
None of these things are deal breakers unless operating in IMC, but wondering if others have encountered weirdness? Come to think of it, the XP10 version of the C208 displayed some flakiness in XP11, so I should not expect these two to act otherwise I suppose.
