Flight Velocity is proud to offer the Garmin GNS530 bezel from RealSimGear . It provides ultra-realistic buttons and knobs for use with the Garmin 530 GPS Nav/Comm in home simulators. This is the best way to learn the functionality of the Garmin 530 and is much more realistic than using the mouse or a touch screen.
This product is especially helpful for learning and practicing instrument flying procedures in X-Plane.
