Brand new USB Aviation Data Card Programmer for the GNS series of products.
Boasting an improved performance and RoHS compliance (allowing global availability), this new data card programmer will enable customers to transfer terrain and obstacle databases from flygarmin.com with unprecedented speed and efficiency.
The new data card programmer offers greatly enhanced transfer speeds, ensuring that less time is spent in front of the computer. When transferring Terrain and Obstacle databases to GNS 430(W) or 530(W) data cards, users will experience up to 80% faster transfer speeds. This new data card programmer is backwards compatible with previous Terrain data cards, so a new data card is not required. Terrain and Obstacle databases are available on flygarmin.com and can be purchased on a one time or annual basis.
Garmin is also updating the existing Flight Plan Migrator Kit to include the new data card programmer. This updated kit will also benefit from the speed improvements that the new card programmer delivers. The new Flight Plan Migrator Kit will be available in the fourth quarter.
