Default Date

I asked Garmin at Oshkosh. They didn't give me an exact date but said late August. The 650 demos they had there had the software update so I got to play with it some. Love the new keyboard. Hope the upgrade comes soon.

Is this update something that Garmin will let us do, or does it require a Garmin approved avionics shop?

They have said they will continue the recent past practice of letting us do it.

We know how anxious you are to get these new features in your aircraft and we continue to make good progress toward releasing the GTN 6.50 software. As stated in the original post, we expect the software to be available in August. We still believe this is a realistic goal. Thanks for your patience as we wrap up the certification and documentation!

Thanks,
Levi

Looks like the 6.50 update has been posted on Garmin's site. Who's going to be the first to install?

I am just got my database subscription today and downloaded the G3X updates in preparation for instrument proficiency training.

I was looking for the GTN software update today, how do I get to it?

Edit: Sooo . . . reading the red warnings before download- Does this mean even the latest version [11.70] of GDU37XX software will not be able to unitize VNAV guidance from the 6.50 version for the GTN650? Touch, latest only??

That's what it sounds like. What a bummer. Guess it's time to upgrade to touch
