RealSimGear GNS 530 Video Review

My video review of the RealSimGear GNS 530. Summary: a great piece of gear that I can highly recommend. Build quality is excellent, setup was a snap, and with the RealityXP GNS 530 running on it it’s as close to the real thing as you can get. If I were starting from scratch I would prioritize this unit well ahead of any Saitek radios. And if you don’t have a home cockpit

, this self-contained unit can sit your desk and provide a fully-functional GPS running alongside your monitor and keyboard. Lean more about it at

  1. Looks like the real things.

    What a re the actual dimensions of the device ?

    How is the display, do you get any distortions when looking an angle, which are very common on
    those small LCD displays ?

    Any issues when running the device in conjunction with 4K main monitor, I have similar Display running 800×600 & when the main monitor is set to 4K this thing start to wobble ?

  2. Hello,
    As this module work is totally depends on our ArdSimX Interface, I would ask you, please add a link to our website under your video. .

    People should know, that this is not a “brand” completely programmed device, it uses our interface, that actually allow anyone just add simple bezel with few cheap buttons to his cockpit and use all its features, anyone can configure any cockpit inputs/outputs just in few minutes!

    More about ArdSimX and SimVim interface using –

    I have nothing against the creation of such instrument bezels/cases for sale, but they can not be positioned as a “branded” complete device, which works only because it has our firmware inside.

    Thank you,

  3. … just wanted to clarify, that on the Realsim website it is pointed that this device is uses the free ArdSimX plugin to control data, but not mentioned that it has another essential part inside – Arduino board with ArdSimX firmware uploaded, that there is no any “brand” program inside this device.


  4. Vlad, So what, This guy came up with the product, designed it, had it made, and is selling them. something you could have done but didn’t. There are millions of products on the market using similar internals and programs written by third partys.
    Relax and enjoy. or come up with a product your self.

  5. Hello, I got both the 530 and the 430. Have not had the time to set up the units. I’m running X-Plane 9.7/10 and 11. Planning on using reality XP 530 and 430. What version of X-Plane did you use in your video?
