I need to practice gps/rnav approaches. Does xplane support his. FSX does not. I don't want to waste more money on sims that don't allow for gps/rnav approaches.

Yes it does. For detailed information on the default GPS's capabilities, please read this developer article. I would also recommend that you download the free demo and try it for yourself at the demo airport KSEA.

Thank you for the answer. I very much appreciate it. I fly aircraft with the G400 and G1000 in the real world for an organization and having a sim to play with on the computer will be very helpful, especially before a check ride. We don't get enough practice in the real world because it cost extra time if in VFR even with an IFR clearance.

Our GPS is modeled after the Garmins, but they're not precisely the same, so I hope the demo will allow you to decide if it's close enough to help or not. :)
