As a result of this change, if your navigation database is several years out of date when the v9.12 software is loaded you will see the IGRF invalid message. This means your Navigation database is many years out of date. A quick database update is all that is needed to resolve this message.

Fortunately we have been working on a free VFR database package for EAB installations! This will allow you to keep the basic databases in the system up to date at no charge. Brad will follow up on this soon here on VAF to provide more information on how to start making use of this.

Thanks,

Justin

That sounds great news re the free VFR Database Justin, will it be a global thing? Us in the UK and Europe would be very much happier if it was

I loaded 9.12, into my SLING yesterday. I monitored its progress in configuration mode and noticed it took a bit longer than usual to load/update my Com, G45R and G5. Will look to fly with it Friday, as weather is gonna be lousy today and tomorrow.

After being a little intimidated from a software update last year I was concerned (terrified) that this one would not go as planned. Worked perfectly !!! Thanks Garmin. !!

Great news. I am in that years old DB camp, as I use Foreflight for charts and the 430W for nav. Just don't want to spend $$ on another DB. Will this free DB include obstacle data in addition to the IGRF data?

Yes - the free database package will include Obstacles, Terrain, and US Airport Information. See post here.

B/R,

Brad

Refresh my memory on which button to hold down to stay in config mode and monitor the software download progress?

Default Add optional CAS reminder to check baro-setting when on the ground

For those interested the limits for this is approx. 140 ft to high and 80 ft to low. Nice add. (Not that I ever forgot to set the baro )

On a stand alone G5, I’m getting the IGRF error too. Do I have to load a database to the G5 now?

Default G5 Update

My G5 took quite a while to read the update through the can bus while the PFD and MFD went fairly quickly. (Less than a few minutes each)
