Hi, I'm just getting ready to start my Instrument training and will have a GNS-430 in the helicopter. I found simulator software on Garmin's website, but I don't think it works with Windows Vista 64 bit. So just thought I'd ask on here if anyone else knows of another version or other simulator software for the garmin 430. Thanks
Thanks for the link, looks interesting. Just not sure if I'm willing to pay the $50. Was hoping for some sort of free/cheap standalone trainer to learn the basic screens, menus, and switchology. Well for that matter I could just use the GPS that comes in FSX.

I am doing my training at Leading Edge Aviation in Bend, OR.
I'm running the free Garmin GNS 400/500W (which includes a number of models including the 430) trainer on Vista 64 with no problem at all.
