When complete, click 'OK' and then 'OK' again to save the calibration and close the control panel application.

Hide the bezel graphic

*Note if you used the new X-Plane installer, you do not need to perform the following bezel process.

Follow the instructions in the Reality-XP user guide for hiding the bezel. Essentially, you just need to go into the aircraft folder and edit the 'RealityXP.GTN' file and change the  'nobezel = false' to 'nobezel = true'

Your RealSimGear GTN650 should now be ready to use.  By default it will appear as NAV/COM 1 and you will see it in the connected devices window.  When you turn the knobs or press a button the ‘message’ and ‘command’ section will change accordingly.

Move the GTN650 window to the RealSimGear GTN650 display, note you will need to ‘pop out’ the window first, this can be done using the Reality-XP plugin menu.
