Default Software version

Steve,
I have system version 3.30 but my Boot block is 2.50 as well as X-Loader. Should it be 3.0 for both? When I check for updates it says there are none available though my buddies show 3.0 for those software packages.
Thanks

Hello Paul,

The V3.00 boot block change was made to support changes in the factory and is not needed by fielded units using the V2.50 boot block and loader.

You are fine. Just relax and enjoy your Aera 660.

Thanks,
Steve

Hi Steve,

Any timeline for updates to GDL-39 and AERA 660 to support the new FIS-B data?

Hello Noel,

Thanks for the report. Hope you come out of this ok!

Just for kicks, I did a side-by-side comparison of Aera 660 internet weather and SXM weather (provided by a GDL 52 running in my house). Both are excellent.

Internet Weather


SXM Weather


Thanks,
Steve

Default Shorten or expand GMA 25 cable

I already have an Aera 660 with Antenna GMA 25 MCX which works well, but i need to shorten the Antennacable to 3 feet (Glaresheeld) or to expand it if i mount the Antenna on the Back of the Fuselage. Is it a problem to shorten the Cable and if i want to expand it 6 feet, which typ of cable is the best.

Markus
